Questions, Bracers, and a Call for Help

Friends and followers! (which is really the same thing.. ;)

We have less than 3 weeks - 20 days to be exact - until the Desolation of Smaug!!! Who's excited????? (MEMEMEMEME) :D So, I've got a couple things to ask you guys. :D

1) As I'm sure many of you know, tickets for theater showings went on sale yesterday, so some questions regarding that:

   a) Have you bought your tickets yet?? (I got mine yesterday!! :D)
   b) What format are you going to see the movie in? (I'm going to see it in plain 2D, so I can completely focus on the story, then I'll go see it again in 3D high-frame-rate. That's my reasoning, anyway. ;)
   c) Are you going to a midnight showing? (YEESSSSS)
   d) Are you planning on going with a group of friends or fly solo? (I'm going with several friends - and le parentals, of course. ;)

2) I know many of you are making your own Tauriel creations, so a couple questions concerning costumes:

   a) Are you going to dress up for the premiere? (I AM!)
   b) If so, what/who are you dressing up as? (You all know my answer to that. xD)
   c) If you're going with a group, is anyone else planning on dressing up? (All my peeps are going to dress up as well. Actually, the girl who was featured in my last blog post is one of them!)

And one bonus question:

3) I've been trying to decide what I should do about Tauriel's arm bracers. I can leave them plain, or add stitching around the edges, or maybe do something else entirely...?? PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR IDEAS! I NEED HELP!!! :D

So, pleaseeee leave a comment with your answers to my many questions! I would love to read them and see what your plans are for the premiere! :D (And hear your ideas for my bracers, too!)

And one last thing before I head... just because I just have to... a little teaser:


  1. I'll add my opinion on the last question. :D I actually kinda like them plain, how they are. But I bet they would look great no matter how you do them.

  2. I have not gotten tickets and I probably won't go see the midnight premier. but I think I might go with some friends. One of my close friends is in love with all things LOTR. lol.

    I think you should do stitching on the edges:) that would look cool!

    and I love the teaser picture!!! it looks awesome!!!!!!!!!:D

    I am SO excited to see Tauriel and Legolas in this film! yes yes yes yes yes yes yes! Legolas is my favorite<3

  3. I haven't bought tickets yet, but I'm hoping to go see the midnight showing!!! I want to see it in 2D too, but I'm not really a fan of 3D, so I probably won't go see it in 3D at all. Hmm... I have not invited anyone to see it with me, but maybe I should consider it. I was just going to see it with my older bro, (who can drive! ;D) but what fun is that!?
    I won't be dressing up, and I think stitching around the edges of the arm bracers would look really awpic!!! :D :D

  4. I have not gotten tickets yet, and hopefully I'll be seeing the midnight showing. ^_^ I am SUPPOSEDLY going with friends, but since they have school the next day (but I'm homeschooled).

    Indeed, I am dressing as Tauriel (if my costume is done by then!). My brother is dressing up as a Ithilian Ranger, but other than that, no one else is dressing up.

    Hmm, I think that they look amazing how they are, but I'm sure that anything that you do will be fantastic! ^_^

    Oh my word, the dress is looking great! I can't wait to see everything done. :-)

  5. nice nice NICE! Costume is looking great! <3
