Halloween - Lord of the Rings Style
If you're looking for costumes in this section, we're assuming you're looking for something quick and cheep. Here you will find out examples of what are out in the stores that you can buy that has been Licensed from New Line Cinema.
A quick bit of info about our site.
If you're looking for very fast general descriptions and suggestion on how you can make LOTR costumes for a night of partying, check out our Closet Quick suggestions.
If you're looking for patterns for the garments, know there are no exact commercial patterns. However, check out our pattern suggestions or if you've got time, come on over to the character sections and see the details. We do have some sketches there. Also under the character area, in Things, is the fellowship cloak and pipe information.
Most of the rest of our site gets into in depth study. Feel free to prowl around. Making Em is for sewing tips and general info. The Character section is the in depth study section broken down by race. We've got numerous links over in the resource section as well as detailed articles. We've got a search engine for site and a discussion group over in yahoo. Also check our our FAQ over in the News section before you start posting since we follow conservative copyright rules.
What's out there as bag costumes that are licensed
Here's a basic list (not complete) of what we've been able to find that is "licensed". Be careful when ordering. A costume often also requires a blister pack for accessories AND these accessories may come in adult and child sizes. Read the fine print.
For more like clothing costumes, check the licensed list <here>.
:We've not been able to fine any online Halloween costume store that list all of these in any kind of order to allow you to browse. We've googled and compiled a short link list. However, these are the same type of costumes that turn up at Party City and many of the Halloween stores every year... so you best bet is to just get to the store.

Links to Halloween Sites
Links to licensed Halloween costumes and other Halloween costume suggestions from the same sources. We just googled these up. Haven't used them... just looking for the pictures. Remember, these are just Halloween costumes. Don't expect great quality, but they'll give you a costume fast.
We have nothing to do with any of these companies and just pulled them up as help for your shopping for licensed products.
Note: since all these links jump into shopping systems, the can be slow to load and sometimes do not load.
Warning: in the non Halloween Season, a lot of these link out out of order...
Last year we listed links to individual costumes. This year we're going to just list a few places that are saying they are carrying LOTR costumes and who have them listed in an easy to find format. We will leave any links that work from last year.
We vouch for none of the vendors and provide this just to simplify your clicking and surfing (and NO your store won't get listed because you're just one more e-store caring the costumes. We don't do link exchange.)
