Review of the Neiman Marcus
The Lord of the Rings Storefront display, Beverly Hills, CA
Yes, it was a bit chaotic with the Hobbits. Turned out to be Elijah and
Billy, along with Sir Ian and Chris and Dan Hennah. I talked with Dan Hennah
a bit, he remembered me from the Oscar party because I quizzed him
relentlessly about Dernhelm's armor. He laughed at how
So, the displays. There was one for Rohan called Theoden's tent. One for Hobbiton, which was the front of Bagend. One for Rivendell, which was mostly Arwen's room, and one for Gondor called Minis Tirith Great Hall.
It was Frodo in his birthday party outfit, and Bilbo in a very find smoking jacket, and Gandalf's grey robes and hat.

At least, I'm guessing it's Denethor, it was rather plain, but I don't think it could be anyone else.
These pics were taken at nighttime. They are lit with colored
lights, and there are Christmas lights in the street, casting their
reflection in the window. You'll see one funky shot of Faramir and Boromir
with loads of glitter stars on the backdrop, and those are from the street.
I can't wait to see this thing in the light of day, when things will be
brighter and I can focus on better
