There’s a very beautiful and sad story behind this commissioned #keyring and I’m honoured to have been the person to create this piece. I love making unique pieces for clients so if there is something you want made, keyrings with a favourite or important quote please PM me as I’d love to work with your vision. #lotr#boromir#gondor#aragorn#fotr#tolkien#leather#myetsy
Tragedies occur all the time. It’s a sad fact of life and we can’t change that or avoid it. Natural disasters, famine, disease.... What we can do though is actively avoid creating our own tragedies where none already exist. Example: A studio poured millions of dollars and man hours into making The Hobbit Trilogy.
🦇Happy Friday bookwyrms!!! 😍
So you know what I need more of? Lord of the Rings merch 😂😂 You’d think I’d have more, given that I have not one but -two- LoTRs tattoos AND I’ve been obsessed since I was like 14 🙈 But alas, most of the stuff I had has been lost over the years, with the exception of my hardcover bindup of the trilogy. And let me tell you, that thing has seen better days. Broken spine, tattered edges, but still one of my most prized books. Anyway, when @lunarbazaarcandles announced her LoTRs box I started eyeballing it. And when she announced her shop closing my hubs stepped in and helped me out, and guys. It’s beautiful. I sincerely love every candle and the woodmark is incredible! (Unboxing in my stories for 24h) Last I knew she still had a couple left, so grab one if you can!!! But! All this brings me around to today’s #declitwrit
We were asked about romance in our #WIP and guys...I’m all about sweet romance where both people are loyal and committed even through the bad that comes with any relationship. Aragorn and Arwen were my OTP before “OTP” was a thing 😂😂😂 And naturally I think some of that gets reflected in my main character and her love interest. Cam has some Aragorn in him, most definitely. 😍
So! QOTD: Do you like a sweet romance with struggles? Or do you prefer the drama—love triangles and the whole nine?
“The Company now mounted again, and Gimli returned to Legolas. They rode in file, and evening came on and a deep blue dusk; and still fear pursued them. Legolas turning to speak to Gimli looked back and the Dwarf saw before his face the glitter in the Elf’s bright eyes. Behind them rode Elladan, last of the Company, but not the last of those that took the downward road.
‘The Dead are following,’ said Legolas. ‘I see shapes of Men and of horses, and pale banners like shreds of cloud, and spears like winter-thickets on a misty night. The Dead are following.’
‘Yes, the Dead ride behind. They have been summoned,’ said Elladan.”
- The Return of the King, JRR Tolkien
While many of you are excited for Christmas Day and all the family fun and festivities, I’m looking forward to my annual Lord of the Rings rewatch marathon! It’s been tradition of mine since to watch LotR at Christmas ever since I first saw Fellowship of the Ring on Boxing Day at the cinema in 2001. I’m excited. I’ll be watching all 6 extended editions of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. It’s a lot to get through so I may need to do 2 per day or something rather than binge them all in a row...
Aragorn progress!! While the chainmail is taking an obnoxious amount of time to put together, I take breaks to do other things. Just finished the breastplate design. I heat gunned it prior to wrapping it to a mannequin with plastic wrap to seal the shape in until I can get back to work on it tomorrow. #lotr#lortcosplay#aragorn#cosplay#cosplaywip#cosplayer#foamsmith

I it was so fun playing (my own interpretation) Jon snow as cosplay. He is one of my most favorite game of thrones characters. NexUnique made an awesome job putting me into this snowy forest (because of course this photo has been made in the WARM photo studio - to be honest, I really started to sweat after a while, this outfit is heavier then you might think 🙈😁).
Tag your friend if you like the pic and want so share it! 😊
Have a good night! 📸 @goldbach.elena
