On one note: I am back! At least for now. The Dagor Nwalmë Vorima (“Battle of Repeated Torment” in Quenya, also known as Retake Exams) isn’t over, and I’m unsure of how it’s going to end. Somehow I doubt the end will be fair. Anyway. Because I’m in a battle-like mood, I thought these hairpins by AKC Woodworking to be absolutely perfect. Styled after famous weapons (The Riddler’s cane, Gandalf’s staff, the Witch-King’s Morgul Blade, the Master Sword…) they are geeky, amusing and practical…. not to mention pretty!
From left to right: The Riddler’s Cane, Staff of Gandalf the White, Morgul Blade, Orcrist, Gimli’s Walking Axe, The Master Sword, Sai, Needle (Arya Stark’s sword). And there’s more awesomeness yet to be found at: http://www.etsy.com/nl/shop/AKCWoodworking
And to add a PS that is still somehow related to pins: I now also exist on Pinterest! Find and follow me if you want! 😉
