View Full Version : Would you see LotR at the movies while wearing Elvish garb?

05-12-2002, 04:04 PM
Heheh. Yesterday me and Goldberry334 saw FotR (my 7th her 8th time) while wearing Elvish garb. You see, the day before, me, her, and Arathin had gone to the salvation army and got some Velvet tights, tunic like shirts, and large dresses to turn into cloaks. Arathin couldn’t go to the movies the next day so I borrowed her cloak (I ended up not using the dress I got, as it was so pretty and elvish the way it was and I didn’t want to cut it up). So it was just me and GoldBerry, although I had to practically twist her arm into going. *Giggle* We also wore circlets. I had a lot of fun swirling the cloak and attempting to walk gracefully about in an elvish manner. I also think I scared two little girls seeing the movie for the first time. I got many sneers and snickers and stares. ‘Twas quite fun.

Would any of you do the same?

i'd do it in a city where no one knew me; it'd be fun to freak people out. :D i'd dress up as a hobbit tho... i mean, i'm too short to be an elf lol

HEHEH I would love to do that but all my friends would bale on me:( That I do not know were I would get the stuff for making the outfit

Salvation Army! giggle, i made a great curly-haired-brunette-elf...

*covets smeagols hair... ;) *

i'd do it if someone gave me the clothes and a buttload of money

05-15-2002, 01:12 AM
but then it's no fun!!! we even made our own circlets...

05-15-2002, 05:01 AM
that's pretty cool, you guys should go around wearing those at school or work or whatever... wear them on a regular basis and see how many people you can convince that you are an elf!

05-15-2002, 06:00 PM
I'd do it, if I could convince someone to do the same. On second thought, that would be too scary.

05-15-2002, 11:13 PM
I am an elf, i dont need to convince anyone. Smeagol was gonna dress up as an elf today, but she was too tired. hrumph. i was gonna get to do her hair too! :(

I did, kinda :) . I wore green trousers and a green tunic, and did my hair Elvish (although I don't think you get that many ginger elves- especially not wearing glasses!).

I went twice dressed like that, and i didn't get as many funny looks as I'd expected.

we wore velvet leggings and tunics, smeagol had a gold belt i had a silver one. i did smeagols hair leggy-style, cause she has pretty hair like that. smeagol put lots of random braids in my hair. then smeagol borrowed the cloak that arathin had just made and we donned our circlets and pranced (well, ok, we drove...) to the movie theater. :D

I would do it if I had enough people do it with and if it was not my home theater. :p

But I sure wish I had an Elf costume.

05-21-2002, 11:01 PM
*giggle* go to Salvation army...thats what we did!

05-22-2002, 07:47 AM
What would be really cool would be to have a bunch of friends come along and everyone dress up as differant characters from the movie. I would do it... you could have such a blast!

and yes, I would go to the salvation army or goodwill :)

Yum. Salvation army.
Coffee-spilly and moth-holey...*mmmmmm*

I'd be a Humurous Bombadillian like Goldberry...but I have an aversion to the number five.
That is, I hate it.

05-22-2002, 11:22 PM
talk to the head of the humerous bombadillians, they might make you #6 instead, if you ask nicely and bring them a shrubbery...

05-23-2002, 01:42 AM
I didn't for Lord of the Rings, but when I saw Josie and the Pussycats I wore cat ears and a tail and when I went to see Star Wars, I wore a robe. My friend brought a toy lightsaber, lol. I would have done something a little more crazy, but there was nothing else to do.

Do you think I could ask them nicely...maybe bring them two shrubberies and a herring...and have them make me number 7? Or even number 13?

05-23-2002, 11:00 PM
you might have to say something funny, too....

OOh, I sure hope i can be funny and not frightening...it's so hard to tell the difference nowadays...

Me and my friend did! Once and a second time a little less extreme.
We live in NYC though so people don't look at you like you're wierd.
I wear an tan flwy top and a green skirt that's ruffeled at the end. I also wore a headband to keep a necklace in place on my head (that was my circlet.) You could see th headbadnd but it still looked good:)

I did not have elf ears, but I will buy some for a party I am going to. Check my thread for which elves had red hair in stufff and bother:) called How do I dress as an elf?

Go to salvation army, buy velvet, and knock yourself out. :D
