Confirmed: Ngila Dickson NOT Working on Hobbit Costumes

Since production of The Hobbit began ramping up we have been getting emails from curious fashionistas about costume designer Ngila Dickson, will she be continuing stunning her work on The Hobbit?

A photo tribute to 10 years of TORn

During my association with I have often felt very fortunate to know great people and be in great places. Sometimes I have been lucky enough to have my camera along.
