Geek Chic: This is How We Roll in the Shire

‘Quel re, my dear collectibles. In celebration of MartinFreemanthe premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug later this week, I’ve decided to unofficially make The Collective blog hobbitized (translation: The Collectiva Diva and the Collected Canadian have no part in my obsession…for now).

Today’s focus: Middle-earth fashion. Since the release of LotR: FotR twelve years ago (wow I feel old), the world has been inundated with Tolkienish clothes, accessories, knibknobs and whatsamacallits. Here are some of my favorites, and, as a bonus, they also make excellent holiday presents (hint hint).

  • The Lord of the Rings My Precious t-shirt $25.00
    Precious not included.


  • The One Ring skirt, custom-made $58.94, RoobyLane on

    For the fashionable Dark Lord
  • You Shall Not Pass undies, $10.99 by wearARTthounow on
    Fly you fools! (and buy some of these)


  • Lord Elrond costume, $89.00, by The HouseofZuel on
    Strut like an Elf Lord.


  • Boromir cosplay, $433.73, by TheCenturiesChest on
    Sean Bean not included.


  • Eowyn’s white dress, $250.00, by Aranel on

    This one I own. Aranel is a fantastic seamstress! Highly recommend if you want to do an Eowyn cosplay!
  • Hobbit door necklace, $26.00, by TempletonTreasures on
    We don’t want any more visitors, well-wishers, or distant relations!


  • For the Tookish baby, $28.99, by MithrilSheep on
  • Martin Freeman’s face, $24.23 on redbubble
    We all knew I had to have Martin on this list at least once.

    I’ve just added half these things to my Christmas list. Don’t worry, Martin, you’re at the top of the list.
