Book week dress up

That staff came in handy after all.

PS. Seeing that first photograph uploaded made me sit him down in the kitchen and CUT THAT HAIR.

WHAT? You cut a hobbit's hair? Surely that's against the rules of hobbitry or something...now you'll be in trouble with Gandalf.

A book week costume to be proud of! I am well known for recycling ours - a grey furry tunic changed from Templeton the rat to a Warrior Cat. Magic! Wonder what furry character I can convince him to go as this year....

So a kinda hair-lite hobbit then ;) Brilliant costume :D

Lovely but no hobbit boots?

Great costume. Now is there anything chenille bedspreads can't be repurposed into? Love it. Jacinta

Oh, that's very good. They should give out prizes for this stuff.

Simple but effective!

Great costume. My kid's high school did a 'letters and numbers' theme so my son went as The Prisoner (number 6), and my daughter as one of the girls from Madeline (they could only muster 6, not twelve, but they had a Pepito and a Miss Clavell as well!)

Popping by from Journey Mama. I teach 4th grade and put on my hobbit attire for each dress-up as your favorite book character. Love it!

Janet said...

I love the chenille cape, and the staff of course!

Gina said...

Brilliant costume.

I don't remember the Hobbits having a barber shop in Hobbitland. But I think I do remember the bit about chenille bedspreads....

Way more authentic to the book than any of those kajillion-dollar films (which I have not and won't see!). He looks super!
