There And Back Again

This Genderswap Cosplay Of The Hobbit Cast Is Hair And Back Again



[View All on One Page]

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen some genderswapped Hobbit cosplay, and while these ladies are certainly beardless, we have to admit they did it with style and class. Check out their efforts photographed by Alexander Turchanin.

    Just lovely. Beautiful work, ladies!

  • Episkey

    Unghhhh marry me

  • DameB

    As it turns out, Thorin is hot, regardless of gender. Dang.

  • Nicole Elizabeth Currie

    I’m not going to lie, a part of me is like ‘but don’t Dwarf women have beards too?’, but then I was like ‘Who cares, this is spectacular!’.
    I may or may not now have a crush on both male and female versions of Fili.

  • Calum Syers

    I’m really crushing on this version of Bofur, I’m not going to lie.

  • Charlie

    Love that Ori, so cute.

    Bilbo’s outfit looks surprisingly RL-wearable. I could probably get away with it at work. And Bombur’s freckles are adorable!

  • Monmonmon

    These are great. The only one that doesn’t really seem to fit in is Gandalf. I think she would have looked cooler as an elderly woman.

    Well I was going to say they could be a bit chubbier too, especially Bilbo but I didn’t want to be taken as hating on them. Cool cosplay is cool.

  • Revolution of Eva

    Dwarf-women *have* beards. Anachronism! This isn’t canonical genderswap, this is merely cosplay. Anachronism, I say!

  • Lien

    …where are the beards? D:

    I mean it’s still pretty and all but come on! It’s not like adding some beard will remove the charm of a Dwarven woman. See here:

    havent seen these films or read the book, which one is Unghhhh?

  • Alisa Ann Kreuzer

    Oh I SO adore this!!

  • Moriah Davis

    These are awesome, and in no way am I tying to detract from how great they are… But I need to see some epic dwarven lady beards! Maybe I should just make one happen instead of waiting for a cosplayer to just spring out of the ground!

  • Kryptoknight

    Impressive all around. The costumes look great, the hair/make-up looks pretty good for most (I think a little more effort to age up FemGandalf would have looked better), and the poses/attitude really shine. However I believe my favorite by far is the Thorin (Or is is Thorina?) Oakenshield.

  • Jonas Albrecht

    Everytime there’s a genderswapped Bilbo, the results are adorable. Adorable!

    Be still my beating heart. LOVE IT!!!
