My Next Adventure - Elf of Mirkwood

First official look at Tauriel from Empire
So, as many of you might already know, Empire Magazine released the first official picture of Tauriel from the upcoming film in the Hobbit trilogy "The Desolation of Smaug" about a week ago. And then, only two days ago, the first trailer for the film was released -- featuring this new Elven guard of Mirkwood! Can you see where I'm headed with this? :D If not, allow me to spell it out for ya...

The idea began to form when the first official picture of Tauriel was released.

I had seen her in the live event with Peter Jackson back in March, but I immediately jumped on the band wagon that so many other people have joined, featuring comments akin to this:

"Why did they have to add her?? So stupid!"

"And she's not even in the book!"

"A female elf warrior? I think not!"

Well, you get the idea.

And this was exactly my mindset until just recently. Then appears this new photo...and I begin to think how much fun it might be to recreate that costume and wear it to the midnight premiere of The Desolation of Smaug in theaters.

But, I kept these thoughts to myself, and decided to wait for the first trailer of the movie to appear so I could see Tauriel in action, and determine whether she would be worth cosplaying.

The trailer releases. And I am totally won over by her sheer awesomeness. :D (I will keep my other thoughts about the trailer to a minimum, but basically, OHMYWORD IT WAS AMAZING I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL DECEMBER EEEEEEEPPP!!!) So anyway.... ;)

So, as you have probably figured out by now, I have officially found my next adventure.

Becoming an elf of Mirkwood.

This blog has been a long time coming. I've made several attempts at these, but...they all ended up dying after a few lame blog posts. But I am determined to keep this one alive. :D So go ahead and follow me or whatever, and I will do my best to entertain you with my adventures. ;)

The first real update on my adventures will be posted tomorrow -- so check back then for my next post!

Until then!
