Still not king yet by Dispozition Still not king yet by Dispozition
So, at Melbourne Supanova 2012, TABCOM (the super amazing cosplay group that I'm basically full time photographer for) did a 19 person Lord of the Rings group.

This was our Aragorn, probably the most screen accurate out of out the group. He may look familiar to a few of you, that's probably because he normally cosplays Captain Jack Sparrow. He's a great guy and gets into character perfectly, it's always hard to tell it's one of my friends and not the person he's cosplaying.

Hopefully we'll all get together for another photoshoot at a location rather than at a con since it was hard to get good portraits and detail shots of everyone, but for now, here's a sneak peek at the epicness that was the group.

Shot with a Nikon d300s and a Nikkor 50mm/1.4

You can find his DA page here brettsparrow.deviantart.com/

Hello, my name is Lydia and I am part of a new group of Italian cosplayers dedicated to the world of Tolkien: The Fourth Age.

This year at Lucca Comics & Games (31 October-3 November), the most important Italian exhibition, we are organizing ourselves to bring a mixed group Lord Of The Rings & The Hobbit for all 4 days with scenes creating the atmosphere of the world Tolkien.
We would like to involve in this project and most cosplayers possible so we invited to participate cosplayer foreigners who want to join us in this mission;)
Do not want no written commitment, but here if you want to come to Italy and participate know where to find ^ _ ^

He doesn't have a facebook page, nor an FB fan page or similar. He is a fairly well known Jack Sparrow cosplayer in Melbourne though.

Sorry, but you've heard this probably very often, but you looks like Faramir so hard!!! O,O
But apart from that this is a very very VERY great cosplay of Aragorn!!! I love the fabrics you used and the expression on your face!

Oh sorry!!! *Headdesk* v,v

But the photo comes out very well! I think, I was so totally distracted by his face and costume, that I missed reading the description! I love the fact, that you take the focus on his eyes. The anger and resolution in his face you've caught in this picture are hypnotizing!

No worries (:

The eye focus is just a staple of generic portraiture. If the eyes are out of focus, it gives the feeling of the entire picture being out of focus since you instinctively look at the eyes.

He was actually even bloodier the next day, but I didn't have my camera on me, bit of a shame really.

Absolutely wonderful cosplay. So rare now days to even see a Lord of the Rings cosplayer. Personally, if I ever saw one at a convention I might just have an extreme fangirl moment. Especially if it was a Boromir cosplayer....but this is really great! I recognized it immediately from the thumbnail and got excited! Really well done.

I personally hope to one day cosplay Pippin in his Gondorian uniform/armour.

We actually had the large majority of the main characters from Fellowship, so we did have a Boromir. I'll be uploading one of the group photos later that will have almost everyone in it.

Really glad you like it :D

Fantastic cosplay. Though I can't help but think he'd make an ever better Faramir - he reminds me a lot of David Wenham.

Yeah, but he's so good as Aragorn as well. I'm sure he'll pull Jack back out soon enough.
