Hello everyone :iconlegolasplz:  

Got my copy of Desolation of Smaug today and have already watched it couple of times.  Really enjoyed the Production Videos.  They give a great insight into how the movie was filmed.  They also help give some great reference for the costumes.  


With an increase of event/convention photos I've decided to add a folder to the gallery.  This is for all event/convention photos.  I'll be moving any existing ones into the folder and any future ones must be submitted to this gallery.  The quality doesn't need to be as strict as the other galleries but it must clearly show all costumes.  Any photos that are not taken at events/conventions will be not allowed in the gallery.  Thank you.

Look for the new folder in the galleries tab.


This group is continuing to grow from strength to strength.  The new images I'm seeing from you all have been outstanding.  With the weather now warming up it is now a great chance to get some great photos on location.

Welcome to new members.  I hope you enjoy the group.  Please check out the submission rules on the front page.  These are guidelines if you are unsure which folder to submit your image to.  If you are still unsure, free feel to note the Founder or the Co-founders.  Please do follow the guidelines as best you can.  Please note that the 'Featured' folder is for admins only to submit to.  Thank you.  

If you do have any questions regarding the group do feel free to drop a note to the Founder or any of the other admins.  


Thank you all for joining and do keep submitting your amazing costumes and photos.  

Best wishes
The Middle Earth Cosplay Team

Hey all! Glad to find a group like this on dA. I'm new to this website but not new to Middle Earth cosplaying. I am a Thranduil cosplayer and in the process of making a few of his coats. Glad to be here!
