This post is about the nifty presents my brother and mother lavished on me this Christmas for the purpose of being Legolas. I had mentioned numerous times that I wanted a fur lined white wool hood and all summer I had been asking for the knife (spending hours mooning over all the daggers at Kult of Athena with Josiah). At last I got them!
When I told my pen-pal all about them in a letter she said that I shd. post pictures of them on my blog. So, Josiah and I went out in the woods and had a photoshoot, as it is called.
First, here's a close up of this amazing Silver Hafted White Knife made by Josiah. It's got a real wooden sheath with belt-hanger and it has my name on it in runes.
Also, Josiah made the bow, quiver and arrows years back when I wanted them to be Susan (ha!). Mother made the White Hood Trimmed With Fur, which I have seen in pictures of Legolas by Hildebrandt.
They are old, so old that I feel young again, young as I have not felt since I traveled with you children. (Meaning Aragorn and Gimli!)
