P.S. For oddball. Referring to Tolkien - he writes that dwarfs-women can be easily mistaken for young gnomes, because they don't have beards. They live in seclusion and rarely come out of cave dwellings, so few people saw them. He also mentions that dwarfs-women are less than men and marry for dwarfs - rare luck . Gimli really was something to brag about) most famous dwarf-woman - Dis, other names I can not remember. Dwarves themselves very love to tell about bearded women, but I think part of their racial folklore) Gimli, in the second part of "The Lord of the Rings " tells a similar to riders of Rohan, barely restraining the saddle. And all around laughing, knowing full well that Gimli jokes to entertain them . And in the world of the Elder Edda, from women's beards, cat's steps noise, the voices of fish, the roots of the mountains and the birds saliva was shackled chain wolf Fenrir. Since women do not have beards, cat steps silent,no voice in fish, etc. There were meant to women of all races, not just dwarfs (c) N. Karpova
I love how you didn't try to fit yourself into the original male Thorin. It almost always feels awkward when someone, especially a girl-to-boy cosplayer does that but you just leapt over that awkwardness!
And while I'm here, I was wondering if it would be alright if I used this photo as the artwork for a cover that I did of the "The Misty Mountains Cold" if you say no, I promise that I will not use it. But if you say yes, I will be very grateful and certainly send you a link.
magnificent. not just the costume, but also the expression, which unfortunately are rarely captured well enough as people put more investment on the clothes and not the character itself. this photo however, capture it almost perfectly, and makes you wonder what did she see down there? is it an army of goblins? is it the dragon? or maybe something entirely different? it makes the viewer think, and that is an achievement, as picture is supposed to convey feeling, provoke thought, and inspire imagination, and this piece does just that. well done.
