Eowyn is a secondary character in Lord of the Rings, but one of the most important. We don’t see her until The Two Towers, where she’s introduced as strong, independent and proud. She cares very much for her kingdom of Rohan and its king, Theodan. As the land slips closer and closer to Sauron’s hands, Eowyn refuses to be silent. Disguising herself as a man, she rides into The Battle of Gondor where she encounters Witch-king of Angmar, Lord of the Nazgul. After beheading his beast, she goes head to head with him to accomplish what no man before her was able to do.

If you follow my tweets, you’ll know that I have a mild obsession with Lord of the Rings…just when you thought I was cool. Anyway, I took a stab at Galadriel the queen of Lothlorien. She’s been around Middle Earth forever and was given one of the original rings way back in the day. She wasn’t a major character in the story but she was certainly a wise one. Anyway, elves were supposed to be the most beautiful beings in the universe so I bet she could wear clothes like nobody’s business.

WAY TO GO TUMBLR, YOU POSTED MY IMAGE FROM SOME TUESDAY AGO…HEY, IT’S SUNDAY. GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER.
oh look, it’s arwen from lord of the rings! how joyful a morning this is. last night i had a rather involved conversation with a friend about which region of middle earth would have the best fashion week. the choices we came up with were the shire, gondor, mordor, rivendell and edoras. so naturally when i woke up this morning i figured i’d post on arwen. for those who aren’t familiar with the series, arwen is an elven princess. elves are the most beautiful beings in middle earth, appropriately played by liv tyler, cate blanchett and orlando bloom in the peter jackson movies. she plays a big role in the destruction of the ring and salvation of middle earth and all ends well for her when she marries aragorn and becomes queen of gondor. that’s the short version, read the book.
