Awesome Reversible Scarf Tells The Story of ‘The Hobbit’ On Both Sides

Hobbit Scarf

 

So The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug still reigns supreme in the box office. Whether you’re going to watch it for the first, second, or nth time, why don’t you show a bit of support and lots of love for the franchise by wrapping this Hobbit-inspired scarf around your neck? The images on the scarf might seem random at first. But if you look closely, then you’ll notice that it’s actually a graphic retelling of The Hobbit.

The imagery on the scarf begins with Bilbo Baggins’ journey from the Shire and back again. Get your knitting needles out and start knitting this as if Smaug were after you.

The pattern is available at Ravelry for $5.

Hilarious: Improv Everywhere Recreates ‘You Shall Not Pass!’ Scene from LOTR

Remember that epic moment from the Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring movie where Gandalf stands in front of the Balrog and delivers the forceful line that was eventually turned into a meme: “You shall not pass!” It was powerful moment and it changed the course of the events to come.

This being one of the most easily recognizable scenes from the series, Improv Everywhere set out to make people experience it in real life by recreating it in one episdode of their “Movies in Real Life” series. The result is pretty hilarious.

A Bedroom Like Bilbo’s, Straight From His Little House in the Shire

Bilbo's Bedroom

We’ve got two more weeks before Bilbo Baggins’ epic adventure hits the big screen. Peter Jackson and the rest of his crew are currently working feverishly on post-production for The Hobbit, and it’s set to be completed just two days before the big opening. Talk about a close call.

I’m not going a grand adventure like Bilbo is, although I am making a huge move to a new place next year. So you can just imagine the geek in me scream out (while my boring, serious external stuff maintained a calm demeanor) when I spotted this cozy-looking get-up that looks like it came straight from the set of The Hobbit!

Plush Halfling Slippers are Perfect for Bringing Out the Hobbit in You

Hobbit Foot Slippers

J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit doesn’t hit theaters until December, but that doesn’t mean you have to hold back on your inner hobbit any longer. These Plush Halfling Slippers are ultra comfortable, ultra plushy, and ultra hairy–just like any regular, old hobbit’s feet. Except for the plushy and comfortable part. Top that off with yellow toenails and your own feet could pass off for that of an old hobbit’s.

There’s still two full months before Halloween comes along, but you might want to get a pair of these if you’re planning on dressing up in a hobbit costume. Or, you know, you could chill in your  bedroom in these ginormous slippers for the heck of it.

Check out the toenails on these feet up close after the jump!Continue Reading
