So I've been brainstorming cool ideas for what we can do.
- We could probably make some sort of game, a variation of "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" but with Smaug. I'm thinking darts? Assuming I can find something that won't damage the wall.
- Hobbit food. I shall have to check what the boss thinks of food in the store - sticky fingers and books don't mix, after all. But what do hobbits eat? English food, I suppose. Scones/baked goods, tea sandwiches, fruit? Those seem like reasonable foods.
- It would really be cool if I could somehow get someone in costume to be a character. I mean, I don't look like anyone from the movies but some LARPer has mastered a hobbit costume. I shall have to see if I can find someone in one of the local costuming guilds - the SCA and those sorts of organizations.
I really want to make this event awesome so that it will hopefully draw a lot of people in.
