The Hobbit Costumes

"The Hobbit" movie is coming!  The artwork and costumes will be here soon.  While we wait, we've re-read J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit". 

We can imagine the clothing of the Hobbits & Eves & Dwarves & Dragons & Trolls... and let's not forget Gollumn & the ring. This is a beloved story retold in song and animation.  Soon, it will be told in movie form too.

In the Middle of the Earth in the land of the Shire lived a brave little Hobbit whom we all admire. 
With his long wooden pipe, fuzzy woolly toes, he lives in a Hobbit hole and everyone knows him.

Now Hobbits are a peace loving folks you know.  They don't like to hurry and they take things slow.
They don't like to travel away from home.  They just want to eat and be left alone.  

But one day Bilbo was asked to go on a big adventure to the caves below
To help some Dwarves get back their gold that was stolen by a dragon in the days of old.  ...

He fought with the Goblins!  He battled a Troll!  A magic ring he stole! ...

Bilbo Baggins, the bravest little Hobbit of them all!

A summary of the story from the song "The Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins" written by Charles Randolph Grean and sung by  Leonard Nimoy in 1968
