Submissions Wanted for The Week in Tolkien Cosplay

January 22, 2016 at 1:30 pm by deej  - 

Attention cosplayers! is pleased to announce a new weekly feature: The Week in Tolkien Cosplay. We know there are many creative fans in the Tolkien community, and we would like to showcase some the amazing costumes out there. They can be from the books or movies, just as long as they are Tolkien-related.  We’ll be posting a few of our favorites each Friday, starting January 29th.

Please send your photo and the following information to

  • Name (can be a nickname if you’d rather not have your secret identity revealed)
  • Who you are cosplaying as
  • Photographers name (if known)
  • A short bio (such as: who made the costume, how long it took to make, and any other details about it you’d like to share)


The talented Janette has been gracious enough to share her amazing Thorin as an example:

“The picture above took about a year to make and has over 700 handmade pieces of clay for the brigandine armor. It consists of about 5 layers ranging from velvet to leather and utilized materials such as foam, wood, vinyl, resin and leather.   This was a challenging build for me as all my previous costumes for the last decade, had been primarily armor builds and this required learning how to use a sewing machine and was also a first for making prosthetics.   I’ve been doing costuming for about 13 years. One of my earliest cosplays was actually a second age elf from the prologue of LOTR.”



By submitting your photo and information, you give permission to publish it to our website, as well as social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, etc..)  Submission does not guarantee your photo will be published.
