Newport Beach Film Festival: Retrospective Awesomeness!

Hellooo! Yesterday was an AMAZING day! I would've posted what I did yesterday but I had to go to sleep early... Plus I was tuckered out from being SO excited during the day.

I went an awesome film festival that was featuring the extended edition of The Fellowship of the Ring. It is the 15th birthday of the film this year so they decided to show it! Which is really awesome of them!
"We're Being Watched" is the theme of the festival this year
We(me, my parents, and Liah) got free tickets to see it which convinced my parents to stay for the movie *fist pump*!


They had a backdrop of the barrel scene from The Desolation of Smaug. There was a barrel we could sit in and weapons to hold for a picture. My sister, Liah, took a picture in the barrel.


And as for me, myself, and I, being the chicken that I am, did not get into the barrel. But I did take a picture on the red carpet! Hiding behind my book of course :)

Don't I look awesome or what?!
There was a costume contest, which I took part of. I must admit that THIS outfit made me stand out much more than the one I wore for Halloween last year.  No one asked who I was so I'm guessing they couldn't tell... (I don't know if you can see the outfit but I don't have a better picture right now. But come by again soon and I might have more pictures!)

Anyway someone ACTUALLY asked if I was a Hobbit and I am SO proud. Yes I was at a LOTR event and maybe I knew people would know I was supposed to be a Hobbit but hey, THEY NOTICED. So that's all that matters right?

There weren't as many people as I had expected but I met a new friend! Her name is Wolfy! She was dressed up as The Eye of Sauron! Don't have a picture of her costume. Bummer... It was COOL!

Well I must get to school work, my friends. Will this school year ever end? It's taking too long for summer to come! Although the weather has turned unexpectedly summery. Is that a word? Yes it is. Yay! I will be using that word now. I must leave you once more. I wish you all a good day!

  3. How cool! Summery is totally a word. ;)

    By the way, thank you for participating in my musicals game! But I wanted to point out that you didn't mention the characters who said(or sang, as the case may be), the lines. You can comment again if you know who the characters were. I just wanted to tell you, so you didn't miss out on half the points. :D
