Hobbit Ears – Samwise Gamgee

December 7, 2010 at 8:09 am by Chris Pirrotta  - 

For Hobbits-at-heart everywhere, here’s a wonderful piece of The Lord Of The Rings to wear with pride – like a Hobbit.

Drawn from the original molds that Samwise Gamgee’s (Sean Astin’s) ears were drawn from for the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, these prosthetics are as authentic as can be.

Hand made here at Weta Workshop by Makeup Supervisor Frances Hawker and her team. Made from latex, they can be blended to look like part of your anatomy for your next costume event or convention.

These are Sam’s ears and are slighty larger than Frodo’s ears. They measure 3.3in (84mm) from the bottom of the earlobe to the “top of the tip”.

The distance between where your earlobe meets your cheek and where the top of your ear meets your temple is 2.4in (60mm).

See image No 3 above for more info on how to measure.
