Hobbit Feet?
Post By HikaruxKaoru. 17/03/13, 06:48 am

I'm not exactly sure where this is supposed to go....meh.

I've had trouble finding tutorials or help about Hobbit feet! I don't think I want to go down the road of putting on prosthetics. Do you think it would be okay if I just walk around in bare feet and maybe glue some wig hair to the tops of my feet?

And another question- it's a bit of a awkward question. I'm FtM cosplaying and my legs will be exposed to the knees. Should I shave my legs? Honest opinion! I was thinking it'd be a bit weird to have shiny smooth legs...I have no troubles walking around with hairy legs if it makes my cosplay just a bit better. Laughing

Yeah, the prostetics thing can be very expensive when it comes to something as big as hobbit feet. You could always buy a pair of cheap canvas shoes anduse a method of either expanding foam/papermache craft to make your feet look bigger if you are dead set on having large feet. But personally, i think that the wig hair on your own feet would look just as cool.

And if you are sweet with growing your leg hairs out then by all means DO IT!!! It will help with the "Is that Frodo a dude or a chick?" thang. And you can always wear long pants whilst growing your leg hairs out, lol. Hope this helped!!

Hairy legs will definitely look better than smooth ;)

If you're sure you don't want to use prosthetics, then yeah just don't shave your legs. For extra foot hair, rather than gluing wig hair to your feet I think a more realistic effect would be gained from using crepe hair and spirit gum.
