Day One at ORC - Costume Contest and the Fenians - "You didn't hear about the polar bear?"
Day One at ORC - Costume Contest and the Fenians|
The party on Friday night consisted of the Costume Contest and a concert by the Fenians. Curious? Check them out!
The first was the most original costume I saw - designed to look like the statue holding the shards of Narsil at Rivendell. Pretty good idea, eh? *S* The next is the little boy who carried the warning back to Edoras - he was great! Third was a Theoden outfit that was just beautiful; his wife dressed as Gamling and the beard was so perfect that I wasn't sure if it was a man or a woman - *S*. Fourth is a gorgeous dark blue dress that made me think of one that you would wear, Dee - isn't it beautiful? See the following link for more of the costumes: http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=9AbsWjFy1at0C¬ag=1
The Fenians played, and I took a number of photos. I love Irish and Scottish music, but they weren't my kind of band. Still they were fun to photograph; if you're a fan, go here for an album of photos of the band: http://share.shutterfly.com/action/welcome?sid=9AbsWjFy1at0g¬ag=1
Last, let me leave you with a photo of a small Galadriel dancing with a Haradrim belly dancer who dances the dance of the Oliphaunt!
That Theoden is amazing!
Loving the pics so far :D
It really suits him, doesn't it? Thanks so much - *S*.
Really nice piccies of the band btw, but what a strange name for a band!
Let's see... the Fenians are/were militants for Irish freedom, is that right?
Who's playing the guitar in your icon - very nice!
Mike Scott from The Waterboys *squee*
Did you take that photo? Very nice; like his hair!
I wish :) Nah, all my photos were crap, but at least I met them :D
*L*! Look what I just saw on sale - too damn bad I didn't like these guys!:
On Sale Fri, 01/27/06
hahahaha yeah, pity, but I hear you are attending another concert soon;)
I think I've seen that Theoden somewhere before.
Yes! He wore the dark red velvet outfit that Theoden wears when he's not in armor in last year's contest, and I believe he said he was in "Ringers".
I'm so sorry I missed this costume event since they fascinate me so much.
Btw, I recently friended you, I can't believe I haven't done it by now!
Thank you, Miss Sorka! *G*
Yay for photos! *claps* I'm the Celebrian in the costume contest!
Let's see - was that the grey costume with the dark red lining? And you had the sword?
That would be me, sword and all! *curtsies*
Cool! Let me know if you need larger files of the pics.

beautiful shots, as always, Ros!! I think the Older Frodo writing in the Red Book person was at Tolkien 2005. The statue is very original as well, I've never seen someone do that before.

I am glad you like my daughters costume. She was Halas Son of Hama who Aragorn speaks to at Helms Deep. Is there anyway I can get a copy of your picture of her? I was back stage the whole time and did not get a single one.
On a side note I loved the Celebrian costume. It was absolutely one of my favorites!!!!

Re: Picture Request
She was wonderful! (I probably called her "he" in my captions - *L*!)
Now... is it the statue you're calling Celebrian? And, am I wrong in thinking that was the name of Elrond's wife? I had assumed it was just an idealized Elf woman, or perhaps representative of one of the Valar. I didn't realize that was supposed to be Celebrian. Thanks!
As to the pic, there are a couple of options:
The easiest way is just to click on the album link; you can then order pics through Shutterfly. You'll get exactly the pic you see if you order 4X6; if you want an 8X10, make sure you crop it the way you want it. Their prices are good, and they do a good job.
Or - let me know your email addy, and, if your email account can handle about 6 megabytes, I'll send you all her pics - I think there were 3.
So glad you saw it, and like it! That's why I take these. She got a great reception on-stage, btw. She had trouble getting her sword out, because she has to pull her elbow up so high to get it - and I think the laughter was even greater because there was a moment exactly like that in the bloopers they showed on Friday night - *L*!

Re: Picture Request
Whoops! I just sent something to your "lj_notify" account, thinking it was your email. Could you give me your email? Thanks.
