    I am on Season 2, Session 19 So, First some thoughts on the sessions I just listened to: Session 18: I think that the hosts were wondering whether Elladan and Elrohir would be identical twins or fraternal twins. My thought is that if they are identical we can show their difference in...

    I am season 2, session 17 Woo hoo! Only three episodes to go until I have caught up, and then I can start engaging with the other forums :) I've been sick this week, so I've been sleeping a lot and therefore I haven't done much in the way of new sketching. But I've been doing some thinking...

    I am on Season 2, session 16 To start, I want to speak on the question that the hosts had about Melkor's transformation when Fëanor slams the door on him. I am of two minds 1) This could be achieved beautifully using on-point acting and special lighting effects, there is no need for him to...

    I am on Season 2, Session 15 So, I decided to change tactics with regards to the elven costumes. Instead of thinking of them from a the perspective of general blocks of time and/or place, I have decided to start thinking episodically. This has proven to be quite helpful this week, since I was...

    I am on season 2, session 14 (including the special frame narrative episode) Hello all, The good news is I managed to listen to two episodes this week. The bad news is that my weekend has been particularly crummy, and as a result I do not have anything costume-related to share. I think the...

    I am on Season 2, session 13. I also participated in the Worldbuilding discussion yesterday. That means that this post is mostly going to be recap of the new costume points from the discussion. But first, I am going to respond to the posts that have been posted since I was last here...

    I am on season 2, session 12. I have also watched the Youtube video of the discussion with Ted Nasmith. So, I am still thinking about how the Vanyar, Noldor, and Teleri will look once they get to Valinor. I have been specifically pondering what their defining looks will be. I have a few ideas...

    I am on Season 2, session 11 Oh hi everyone! So many responses today, I like it :) I'm glad that I am not the only one who thinks that ward tattoos are a natural progression for the Avari. I agree with all of your points, and I wonder what the hosts might think... MithLuin: I don't think the...

    I am on Season 2, Session 10 First thing, I am so sad I missed the live discussion with Ted Nasmith :( On to costumes... So, I am still thinking about what the elves on the journey are going to wear, the more I think about it the more I want to go with my original thought of having them use...

    I am on Season 2, Session 9 So, I had a bit of inspiration today and thought up some ideas about what the wards against the dark rider might look like. I decided to go with the theme of the stars, so they are all inspired by Varda's stars and constellations. Wards Against Dark Rider by...

    I am on Season 2, Session 9 Firstly: Thanks MithLuin! To be honest, I hadn't thought about Elwë's cloak from Valinor being The Cloak, but the more I think about it, the more I like it, so I'm rolling with it. It should absolutely be special. I'm thinking it could have some metallic threads...

    I am on Season 2, Session 7 Hello there, Today I decided to focus on the three ambassadors of the elves. The hosts had mentioned that they wanted a way to show that Ingwë, Elwë and Finwë were different after having visited Valinor, and one of the ways they suggested was clothes, yay! I imagine...

    I am on season 2, session 5 I decided to stick with the progression of the elves today. My task was the Avari. So, the hosts mentioned that they wanted the Avari to be "wild" and "nomadic" which to me means a hunter-gatherer society. When I imagine hunter-gatherers I imagine very scantily clad...

    I am on Season 2, Session 3 Hoo boy, this session has a lot to think about. I've started at the beginning, with the elves at Cuivienen. The consensus among the hosts was to keep with the Ted Nasmith image, and go with full body coverings. They also wanted the elves to be able to live in trees...

    Hello there, I am back, but I am horribly behind on the podcasts and the forums. I have been thinking about a way for me to start contributing again without getting quite overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of what I have missed, and the idea I came up with is this thread. What is this forum...

    Frame Characters

    Here are the casting results for the frame characters Estel: Jason Drucker Gilraen: Alicia Vikander Elrond: Benedict Cumberbatch Note also, I think it was in the sets episode, the hosts mentioned that they wanted a human-style house for Gilraen and Estel to live in within Rivendell, so perhaps...

    In response to the Host's challenge in Episode 0-2 : How to visually depict the Valar

    Hello everyone, I've finally watched the casting episode, and I have updated the first post in this forum to reflect the desires of the hosts. Also, according to Trish I am the de facto head of the costuming guild, which is... Weird... I hope I am not being too overpowering, as I would really...

    In response to the Host's challenge in Episode 0-2 : How to visually depict the Valar

    Hello all, I have been doing a bit of thinking about the elemental forms of the Valar, and I have some ideas. For a while I was trying to decide whether to draw them out or not, but I don't think my art skills are good enough to properly depict what I have in my mind, so I will do my best with...
