Over the weekend I was able to put together my Hobbit costume – with this shirt from Mexicali Blues that I’ll layer with a white thermal-ish undershirt:
A silk blue-grey scarf that I’ll either use as a shawl or a sash, and this epic skirt from Calypsoe’s etsy that I found in a last ditch effort to save myself from having to go buy fabric and sew one!
I’m so excited because it’s the absolute perfect skirt, and I think it’ll go well with the shirt. When it gets here, I’ll decide whether or not I’ll use some of the extra material from Amanda and Hannah’s Hendstrom cloaks to make an apron or not, and if/what I’m going to layer on top of it. My other skirt that I got from Mexicali over the summer had a similar shade of gold/yellow and went really well with the top, but I think that’ll make it too patterned, so I’ll probably stick to an apron or the scarf/shawl/sash. I don’t think I’ll be doing hobbit feet because my feet probably won’t be visible and I’ll opt for warmth and boots due to the general winter-and-midnight-y-ness of the event.
I’ll probably hide the ruffles on the bottom of the shirt by tucking it in, unless it looks better untucked. ^.^
