Hobbit Costumes – Dwarves and Villains
Welcome to our collection of costumes from The Hobbit. When the films premiered here in New Zealand, many of the dwarf costumes were showcased about the capital. Some proved difficult to capture as reflections marred plenty of the images we took, but there is enough detail to allow cosplay fans and movie followers to get a good idea of recreating the costumes.
Hobbit Costume – Details
The costumes are at each of the links below and if you click through you can see our
comments and as many detailed images as we were able to take for the characters.
You will find highly detailed images of Thorin and Bilbo Baggins costumes, many of the dwarven company, and some shots of Azog the Defiler whose life-size recreation was on display at Te Papa, Wellington’s major museum of cultural history.

Smaug the Dragon
There was no recreation of Smaug for the movie premiere but a superb model was made of his head by Weta Workshop. This was on display at Wellington Airport and our link includes a short movie giving an idea of size and scale.
