Dwarf & Hobbit dress up games

You know the online princess makers and what not. Well, now there's something much more amazing - Dwarf Scene Maker and Hobbit Scene Maker. I'm particularly excited about the former myself, but they're both great.

Here's yours truly as a dwarf...


...and here as a hobbit:


I encourage you to share your creations, whether it be a picture of yourself, a fellow Downer (I know these exist), a Tolkien character, or somebody else altogether.

I made 3 versions of myself as a Dwarf, one of the more-or-less real me and 2 wannabe mes, and one Hobbit wannabe me, but then discovered that you need to register to save the picture, so... can't post any.

This is such an entertaining time-waster. Either I haven't had enough barbie dolls in early childhood, or I really don't want to study for my exams. Considering that I am amused with papet plate origamis above most other objects, aside from pens and rubber bands, this is a darn entertaining time-waster. If you have time to waste, I recommend it.

PS: Agan, your beard is gorgeous.

You don't have to save it - there's a download button, or you can take a screenshot (which is what I did). I think saving is just for if you want to change it later.

Thanks for the compliment.

Maybe I'll recreate the wannabemes and post them too.

Voila.

I think it's quite obvious that the real me has more braids than Jack Sparrow, has enough hair for about four hairstyles superpositioned on top of each other, and sticks quills and whatnot in her hair.

Now, off to try the hobbit one... after you do your exam study you idiot procrastinator!... Stop sounding like Adam. Or Alice.

Evidently the hobbit-making tool was not equipped for hobbits with massive hair, or elves with elvish hair:

Ahaha awesome!

I'm guessing Lommy and Greenie for the first, and Volo and Legate for the second. It's funny Volo looks so much taller though.

Here's me as seen by the phantom (presumably at his house, because it's so posh):

I think that's nice, and most of it quite spot on. Except for the one which is supposed to be me, of course, aside from the weird height Agan mentioned (but hey, it's a hobbit...) for one main reason: I don't wear round glasses.

TP's rendition of Agan is very much a true copy of reality, though. Well, except for the really awkward smile (and the fact that for some reason, whoever made this is again one of the people who think Hobbits are supposed to have weird ears ).

I wanted her to have a bit of an evil grin, but that was as close as I could get without sacrificing accuracy.

It's nice that a thread like this started, for now I have a place to post all the various versions of Agan I'm always making on some site or another.

How about a picture of the man himself? Mind you, the crown exists only with the power of his imagination.

That's what I thought. But round Harry-Potteresque glasses were the only ones I saw in the toolbox thingy. And I guess the height difference is because of how I placed the two people, which was completely random and had no consieration of the effect on the overall visual. I might redo this one if I find rectangular glasses... maybe I just missed them. I only found the round ones by mistake when I wanted to grab some other object near them.

Agan had me caught onto this at another site, so I might as well post it here:



I just don't have enough hair to be a dwarf.



I think I like being a hobbit much more.
