It’s always so fun to host Geek Girl Brunch Miami events. It’s become my one mama’s day out a month, so I enjoy it for all it’s worth! This month’s brunch was mine to plan, and being my birthday month, I decided to go with my first real-true-Internetworthy-hardcore fandom: Lord of the Rings. I remember joining Livejournal during the LOTR craze, and fangirling hard. I mean, my birthday cake had Frodo’s face plastered on it for my 21st and I stalked all fanpages possible for the entire cast. I still consider all of them my little babies, and love to see them all doing well. At one point, my screen name was “hobbitluv,” so yeah. It was serious stuff.
I knew I wanted to honor Frodo in a casual cosplay way (guys, it is HOT for a hobbit cloak, ok?) so I went boho. I made sure pieces I chose were flowy and comfy to emulate hobbit garb, and matched the colors of Frodo’s outfit. I paired it with my beloved Sting replica from The Noble Collection, and absolutely love the way it all turned out. I also love that I can use all the pieces again repeatedly because they are so cute, versatile and comfortable!
