A Forgotten Piece of My Tolkien Collection
Sometimes I wonder where my brain is. (sometimes??)
The other day I was digging in my closet (remember: tiny apartment means squeezing stuff into small areas)… when I came upon this vest my brother had made….
It belongs in that Tolkien collection I posted about…
Not only did my brother sew this leather vest but he drew Eowyn on another piece of leather and then sewed it to the back of the vest…
I am too fat for it to fit around my waist but I wore it “open” when I went out the other day.. remembering again that I live in a place where everyone is over 65.. no one even noticed the vest! (depressing I know!)
My brother had also painted the Nazgul on a piece of leather but never got around to making another vest. (bummer) I am not certain but I’m pretty sure he copied the drawings from an old Frank Frazetta book. It’s such a shame that they sit here in a closet and never get seen. I sometimes wish I could sell it but leather isn’t cheap and neither is a “one of a kind” drawn piece of artwork, and I’d never get even close to it’s value.
I think that’s the end of the Tolkien collection.
