Here’s a terrifying glimpse of Azog the Defiler from The Hobbit; dire enemy of Elves, Darves, Hobbits, and Men. This image is a sneak peek at our exciting series to where we will record many of the costumes seen on the Hobbit Costume Trail around Wellington, New Zealand.
Life size models are scattered around the city, so we will be hunting them down for detailed pictures and reports. It will be thrilling to see these genuine movie costumes, each displaying the superb craftsmanship of New Zealand’s 3 Foot 7 and Weta Workshop. Textile close-ups are rare so it is a special treat to be able to share these riches! [Check the ‘Hobbit Costume Trail’ tab at the top of the blog for future updates].
For many fans it is a thrilling opportunity to see, a mere arm’s length away, the costumes made for Thorin, Legolas, Bilbo, and the enchanting Tauriel. Join us to start 2015 with dwarves Bifur and Bofur, and the fiendish Azog.
Finally, the winner of our superb made in New Zealand Hand Crafted Notebook and Calendar!
