Best Bilbo Baggins Costume Guide
Bilbo Baggins is a main character in the legendary JRR Tolkien novel, The Hobbit. In the hugely popular film trilogy from Peter Jackson, he was played by actor Martin Freeman. Bilbo is a Hobbit who is happily living his life in the Shire until Gandalf assigned him to go on a quest with a group of Dwarves to return to their homeland and reclaim it from the dragon Smaug who had taken up residence in the Lonely Mountain.

To get the look of everybody’s favorite hobbit, you’ll need a Bilbo Wig with Ears, Brown Tobacco Pipe, Sting Sword, Jumbo Feet, Wooden Walking Stick, White Mandarin Color Shirt, Velvet Blazer, Green Tweed Vest, Caramel Corduroy Pants, The One Ring with Chain, Leather and Canvas Ruck Sack and a Navy Fleece Blanket.

About Bilbo Baggins
Bilbo Baggins is one of the most well-known characters in literary and cinema history. Played by Martin Freeman in The Hobbit film trilogy, Bilbo is an unwilling participant in a quest to help a group of Dwarves reclaim their homeland Lonely Mountain. He is known to be grizzly about the whole affair, preferring to stay at home. Hobbits don’t usually stray far from home, and Bilbo considers himself to be too cowardly to end up in dangerous situations.
As the journey goes on, he discovers bravery and courage he didn’t know he possessed, but he also picked up the One Ring, not aware of its significance and believing it to be just a trinket. Before long, He realized that the ring did have a hold over him, but he battled with himself not to be controlled by it. Following his quest, he kept the ring for six decades before parting with it – becoming the only person to hand it over to someone else willingly.
