The Wearable Arts Award
is an annual event in Nelson, New Zealand which is "all about taking art off the wall and using it to adorn the body". How is this LoTR related, you ask? Well this year's overall winner was the creation of Stuart Johnson, a professional armourer who helped create the armour for LoTR! You can read what the NZ Dominion had to say here
and check out the gorgeous armour that won the prize here
. Thanks to A Random Hobbit for the story.
