I (still) wish the comments box had the art above it for commenting purposes. There is so much about this particular piece that just makes me want to keep looking and looking and enjoying it. You put such a cast of characters together, I love it. I can't pick a favorite... the shoutout to firefly was fantastic, and I <3 LOTR characters. Newt makes a great HP. So fun! I do wish there was a series of these, where the whole tribe is cast into characters... :)

Whoa, this is so impressive! I love all the costumes you chose for the elves - especially Blacksnake as Thorin Oakenshield and Rill as Max :) Copper as Alice is very, very fitting too, with her living sort of in two worlds. Brilliant, all of this!

Holly, I don't' know how you manage to do it? I wish I had the talent to do a scene like this. It is so fantastic to see all the elves interacting and in costume. This must have taken you some time to complete.

Congratulation for finishing this one Holly! I'm a bit late with my comment but better late then never.
I really admire how much work you put into this one. I have the feeling in AU contests the effort sometimes is reduced to "Character in outfit , maybe background" which is fine but I love seeing these more elaborate pieces so much more.
What I also like is that you get a feel that this really are supposed to be costumes and not Blacksnake as Torin or the like but it's Blacksnake dressed as the beloved Tolkin Character. I think what adds to that flavor is for one the background, then the interaction between the characters here and overall the feel of this being a party.
The costume choices are very cute and fitting. I agree it would have been interesting to see another variation in Theme besides "TV and Movie Characters" but maybe in this case it was a motto party.
I love Starskimmer here. The hair the dress. It suits her well and I can see her putting on an melodramatic act. LOVE!
Chicory looks very cute and I like the boys too and this outfit dose suit Brightwood. But most I adore One-Leg here. The idea the cloth. It all suits him so well. Well.. okay he's second to Moonwing as delivery owl. I love you forever and ever for including him into the piece! Thanks altogether fr including Newt. I do like the bit of interaction here anyway. Great piece of Artwork, Holly and again Congratulation for tackling such a big piece and again thanks or including Newt :)

It's so awesome (and really, awe is the word here!) to see this finished! It's been fantastic to see the evolution of the sketches and colours but the complete project.... just wow. It's got such a great feel to it; I love that they're still out in the woods instead of in a community centre somewhere, it feels so AU and so realistic. The costume choices are wonderful - I may not know some of the series, but the ones I do fit absolutely perfectly. This is a really vibrant piece, and I get so excited at all the different details and characters to look at here!

Thank you Holly for giving form to old concept for One-Leg. That once figure on it's own is impressive, and the you go and raise the bar with so many figures and the composition of all of them together.

This is an amzing picture, Holly. And so funny to look at. I think I recognized all except of three at first sight.
The roles of Newt and One-Leg are just perfect! Newt because of his background (+ owl!) and One-Leg because he simply IS Mad-Eye Moody's doppelgänger.
I love, love, love the details of Thorin's/Blacksnake's costume. He looks amazing!
I must admit I was a bit bewildered about your choice of costume for Farscout and Brightwood at first (those two I did not recognize, even with the dinosaurs). But thinking of how the gender roles are reversed with Zoe and Wash, I think it is pretty fitting. Albeit I still have troube imagining Farscout to act and speak like the goofy pilot of the Firefly. :)
I do not know Elvira but looking at her non-existing neckline I can clearly see the connection to Starskimmer. :P Chicory as Bilbo is also a wonderful choice. Those clothes look really good on her.
