“The Lord of the Dings”

Most of are you are familiar with the epic trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings.ย  And of course, Peter Jackson made movie history with his grand movie rendition of the tale in three great productions.ย  The primary characters in the tale are four simple hobbits from the Shire thrust into a great saga of good against evil in Middle Earth:


This year, in the spirit of LotR fare, as enthusiasts of both the books and the movies, we offer to you our Halloween-costumed “hobbits” in this year’s production of The Lord of the Dings, starring:

Matthew Ding as Peregrin “Pippin” Took (as the tallest and most impulsive of the four)

Andrew Ding as Meriadoc “Merry” Brandywine (as the most sensible or at least sensitive of our children)

Emmaline Ding as Samwise Gamgee (cuz she loves to help around the house)

Calissa Ding as Frodo Baggins (cuz she’s least likely to lose the “precious” ring around her neck!)


(click the above to go to a full-sized image suitable for the average LotD fan to use as a desktop background =-p)

The kids gleefully tromped around the mall this morning barefoot.ย  Most shoppers looked at them with amusement, but one store employee, obviously a LotR fan, inquired as to why their feet weren’t hairy! =-)

Cheerful hobbits grasping the hilts of their daggers:


Not quite forlorn “Frodo,” Calissa attempts to feel the inner angst of her character:


Donning hood and cloak, the hobbits offer the “monster faces” by which they plan to frighten any Nazgรปl that may threaten to either harm the Ringbearer (or take their candy):

    That is SO cute! I’m sending this to my friend Leticia who is a huge Tolkien fan. But I must admit that since we watched Riverdance this morning, I was expecting some Irish dancers when I saw the blog title. ๐Ÿ˜‰
