and if you would be so kind, I'm planning to do a LotR cosplay with my friend (who's going as Frodo, and me as Sam) and I'm wondering if you might could give me any tips? I would LOVE to know where your Sam got their wig, because it is the absolute perfect color. any help at all would be much appreciated!
I get asked about the wigs a lot and unfortunately, the truth is that's both out natural hair colors lol. No wigs for us.
I would say a good tip as far as the shoes (If you're going to a convention since they have rules about such things) would be to do what we did. I took plain white flip flops, pulled the thongs out, spray painted them flesh color, and replaced the thong holes with clear lanyard, tying knots and hot gluing them on the bottom to be extra safe. They actually held up really well and it's a good alternative to either wearing shoes and ruining your costume or not wearing shoes at all.
Also, if your up for it, getting the prosthetic ears and using spirit gum was a fun experience. I even used a bit of the spirit gum to add hair to my feet. But you don't have to go that far lol
