More on Hobbit Feet

January 1, 2000 at 3:13 am by Tehanu  - 

I heard talk about the 14-hour days the hobbit extras were working down at the Hobbiton set. Apparently most of the hours spent at the makeup dept. involve putting on the prosthetic feet, which are latex and have to be glued on all over. Once the day’s shoot is over, they take about half an hour to get off, and every hobbit extra then gets a footbath with eucalyptus oil – to help get off the glue? – and then a long footmassage and powder. Something to look forward to at the end of the day, apparently.
