Middle Earth Midnight Madness

I am officially the ultimate nerd. On Monday, I attended an event celebrating the release of the Lord of the Rings trilogy on Blu Ray. It was called Middle Earth Midnight Madness and it was somewhere in West Los Angeles. My two friends (Olivia, the blonde and Alyssa, the brunette) and their horse trainer Jennifer (other blonde) all arrived there around nine in the morning because the first 150 people to show up would get a wrist band and would be able to meet some of the cast members. Unfortunately, not a lot of people showed up but we were still third in line to meet John Noble (plays Denethor) and Sala Baker (plays a few orcs and Sauron). There was a contest contest in which my Olivia and Jennifer entered and Alyssa and I got to wear two exhibition costumes and present them on stage. Unfortunately, my dress was extremely unflattering since it didn't fit me haha but it was still fun none the less! It was in the parking lot of Best Buy and people were just staring at everyone dressed up as Lord of the Rings characters. We stayed there for about fifteen hours, hence why we are wearing mustaches. After we got our wrist bands, we just drove around L.A. looking for things to entertain us and pass the time. Once we got our LOTR books signed, went home and passed out. The next day, we went to a special showing of the extended version of Return of the King. It was fantastic! And Jen, Alyssa, and Olivia all dressed up (pictures at the very end) as Eowyn for the event!

God, my life is amazing.

Those are the craziest and cutest photos I've ever seen! Cute moustaches, I'd have a pair, too! (if I could). Congrats on meeting some LOTR cast members, wish I was there, too.
