This Tauriel Cosplay Makes Me Want To Cosplay Tauriel Even More

Fan reaction to Tauriel, the newly created elf for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit films, was mixed. But can we all agree on how cool she looked? As a natural redhead who’s been debating cutting her waist-length hair, seeing Desolation of Smaug made me second guess myself. Purely for cosplay reasons. And then came this. Cosplayer AngelaBermudez on DeviantArt put together a really great Tauriel replica that actually looks comfortable to wear. I’m all about that.

    I’m afraid, everyone. Since Tauriel isn’t canon, I’m afraid they are going to kill her off in the 3rd movie. Anyone else worry about this like I do?

    I’m afraid of all my favorite lady characters dying, canon or not.

    It seems like the most logical story path. Especially considering…

    SPOILER: (Well, I can’t seem to make the Spoiler Tag work so…watch it)Even the canons aren’t safe. All the pretty dwarves, Fili, Kili, and Thorin Oakenshield, die.

    Right, but most of us already *know* the canons who die.

    We do, but even the most dedicate Tolkien reader (why can’t I put down The Silmarillion) can forget it in the process of watching the movies.

    Not until you just mentioned it. :(

    Doesnt matter..Honestly just as long as the Battle of Five Armies happens exactly how it does in the books with Fili, Kili, Thorin all dying, then fine. I mean that whole elf/dwarf flirting thing was kinda like wha? thats not Tolkien…ugh anyway..Its P.J he had elves at Helms Deep even though there WERENT any and poor Haldir got killed for no reason whatsover..grrrr….

    She’s beautiful and graceful looking. The costume, weapons, and makeup are damn-near perfect. The location is very fitting as well. Thanks for posting this.

    think about it. Kili dies at the end of the Hobbit, yes? So who do you suppose they’ll have die next to him..?
