"a generic frodo" - nerdier than greek
yes, ladies and gentlemen, that is, in fact, elvish. i was told that it says "happy birthday, allison," but for all i know it could say "and the jay-z song was on." now, that would be baller, but not what i was going for. i really cannot express how beyond my level of nerd expertise this is, and that is saying a lot.
also, this was a very difficult design to work with. there are no simple, cute, cartoon characters in lord of the rings. thanks, peter jackson (and thanks for ruining the lovely bones as well). i did find a few LOTR coloring books, which this kind of looks like, and combined those with some of the movie posters of elijah wood, which this is like a mirror reflection of..... ha. basically, it's a dude in a cloak with a necklace on, and he has no eyes. if that doesn't scream frodo baggins, then, get your eyes checked.
TOTAL DECORATING TIME: 2 hours + 10 hours of my life napping while in the movie theater for the three LOTR movies, best sleep i've ever gotten.
the one ring to rule them all,
