The Hobbit: Gandalf and a Good Book by Berpi The Hobbit: Gandalf and a Good Book by Berpi
“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit ..."
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

On a couch in the school library there lived a wizard.

I decided to become Gandalf the Grey for this years 'Dress as a Book Character Day' at the school I work at. He was a real hit with the kids, who kept shouting 'YOU SHALL NOT PASS' at him.
Gandalf responded, with dignity: 'Unless you study.' :P It was fun scanning out books and trying to figure out how to actually do my job in a robe and funny hat.

Everything you see, barring the wig and beard, was made by me.

For a giggle, check out this video we made as a response to the famous Gandalf Europop Nod: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkDKIR…

Hahaha! I would also love to see Gandalf smack someone upside the head and say, 'FOOL OF A TOOK!' If they were using grammar wrong, or forgot to bring their things to class, or didn't study for an exam. XD
Thanks so much for making my day ... and thanks for all the very kind +fav s!

Thank you, Deeed/Pippin!! ;) I was actually wondering about bringing him to the first Perth showing of The Hobbit Pt. 2... although I'm not sure how comfortable he will be in a cinema. Do you think any of your Hobbity friends would be interested in going on an adventure? xx e.

Hahaha that would be awesome! Maybe not for whoever sits behind you though.
THIS hobbity friend would be interested! What do you have in mind? Premiere dress-up? Photoshoot?

I was thinking of being a gentleman and removing my hat when the movie starts. :)  Wizard hat hair only looks good in a very dark room. ;)

Really not sure! Was just thinking about it! Very opening to suggestions! Would Pippin be interested, or would you consider going as Bilbo?

Oooo... Bilbo would be awesome! I'd have to make his outfit. When's the film out? Could take a while (got some commissions to work on plus Waicon cosplays).

Gandalf is always a gentleman. ;)
