Yay, it’s that time of the month again! No, not that time – I wouldn’t be screaming yay if it was that time – but Beauty and the geek time! This month Sylirael from The Painted Rogue and I chose a Lord of the Rings theme, and while my ravishing rogue friend went for a Gandalf-inspired look, I decided to pay homage to my homeboy Sauron with an Eye of Sauron look. Check it out!

My Eye of Sauron look

Sauron isn’t exactly known for his subtlety. Subtlety was actually probably the last thing on his mind when he decided to put an enormous burning eye on top of The Dark Tower to watch every dwarf, orc, ent and elf in Middle Earth with. Inspired by the Eye’s fiery colors I created a flaming eye look in bright yellow, orange and red with matching orange lips. In the words of my buddy Sauron: ‘’You cannot hide. I see you. There is no life in the void. Only death.’’

Sylirael’s Gandalf look

Sylirael created two looks this month that were both inspired by her favorite Lord of the Rings character, the wise wizard Gandalf. Yep, two looks! First she’s showing us a white Gandalf The White look, and then for dessert she’s treating us to a grey Gandalf The Grey look. Quickly visit The Painted Rogue blog to get a taste of Sylirael’s wizardly ways!

What do you think of our Lord of the Rings looks? Who is your favorite Lord of the Rings character?

  1. Wauw prachtige look! Ik heb maar een klein deeltje van LOTR gezien, en dat is alweer lang geleden, dus ik kan niet meteen een favoriet personage kiezen :D

  2. Wat een ontzettend gave look heb je gemaakt! Ik moet eerlijk bekennen dat ik The Lord Of The Rings films nog een keer moet kijken. Mijn moeder heeft ze een hele tijd geleden wel gekeken, maar zelf lette ik toen maar half op en zou dus niet weten hoe de films gaan haha. Ook de boeken heb ik nog niet gelezen terwijl we die wel hebben. Binnenkort toch beide maar eens snel gaan doen en dan kan ik hopelijk ook een favoriet karakter noemen haha.
