Re: Chicago / Midwest LOTR Costuming Club??
- I'm thinking there will be a 'resurgance' when the new movie "The Hobbit" is nearing release - most likely once the 'insider' pics and info start hitting TORN. There aren't any 'active' groups that I know of in my area either. There are regular 'cons' (i.e. conventions) for those who like to 'cosplay' (dress up in costumes) - and I've even seen pictures from recent events of Ents and Ringwraiths.... So all is not lost.... while hope remains.....

It's too bad there aren't any costuming groups anymore! These movies are so tremendous.. . you'd think the fandom would last. :-(

years. The groups may not exist, but the fans are still fans - just not
organized. Wait until the Hobbit ramps up, and we'll see what happens.
