Sunhats of the Rohirrim.

November 14, 2000 at 8:47 pm by Tehanu  - 

Wellington newspaper ‘The Dominion’ has a picture of feisty Tariana Turia, member of Parliament, modelling one of the Rohan helmets from the film production. It weighs five kilos! Other than that it was a good sunhat, Turia suggested – protecting the nose and neck as well as the head. Well, it would.

The reason for the story is that it’s Hat Day, and Melanoma Awareness Week, so Turia was doing her bit to promote the coolness of wearing hats, and the film company was doing their bit for the public good. We can’t post the Dom’s pics, but we have our own one of a Rohan helmet here
