The Hobbit: Bilbo Baggins Costume

I created this costume for a client in 2014 for the theater release of The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies.

The jacket, vest, shirt and pants were all made from modified patterns, but the scarf and the acorn buttons were the fun parts! The scarf is made from a design created by the client and custom printed fabric from Spoonflower (fabric available for sale here, see related items below for finished scarf). I sculpted, molded, cast and painted the buttons myself (see related items below for buttons in raw cast, plain gold and aged gold finishes).
