My crocheted Smaug is finally finished! I apologize for my truly terrible camera and photography skills. He is massive, at 32” from tail to snout and a 38” wingspan.

“Can I touch your butt” in Elvish.
This is so useful
No, this is not “Can I touch your butt” in Elvish. This is “Can I touch your butt?” in English, transcribed using the letters of the Elvish alphabet. There is a difference.
In Elvish, the letters of the alphabet correspond to sounds, not to words. The above text spells it out using one symbol to represent one letter of the original English, which is incorrect:
- c-a-n i t-o-u-c-h y-o-u-r b-u-t-t
If you really want to spell out an English phrase using the Elvish alphabet, you would do so phonetically, which would basically equate to one symbol per phoneme (sound):
- c-a-n a-i t-u-ch y-o-r b-u-t
If you actually wanted to write “Can I touch your butt?” in Elvish, one (very rough) translation would be:
Annog nin daf pladan tele ci?
Which, in Sindarin Elvish, roughly translates to, “Would you give me permission to touch your rear?”
Written in tengwar (the Elvish alphabet), it would look like this:
Sorry for the blurry quality.

Fem!Ori - Katsucon 2014
Made and modelled by me
Photography by Lazy Cat Photography
I’d been dreaming about getting winter snow pictures of this cosplay since way back in May when I first started working on it for a summer convention. And while the big Katsu snowstorm made me almost a full day late for the con, I forgive it entirely for letting me take these amazing photos with Karina!! They turned out totally Erebor-tastic! Outside in the snow is the perfect place for Ori to read her favorite books and practice her aim at icicles~!
GUESS WHO FINALLY SAW THE HOBBIT
why is it always the weird stuff that gets reblogged
As where the official LEGO version features 1,368 pieces, this custom job utilizes over 150,000 LEGO building blocks to recreate the classic scene from J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic novels. In addition to the staggering number of bricks used for the installation, Helm’s Deep also includes 1,700 minifgures. via io9
this makes me happy
Like are you fucking kidding me, was this really necessary? Shit. Goddammit.

True story: Gandalf appears at University of Minnesota during exams, going around telling people ominously “You shall not pass.”
