Lord of the Rings

This was a WONDERFUL surprise postcard for me! The sender is from New Zealand and her dad was an extra in the Return of the King, from the trilogy The Lord of the Rings. (My favorite movies :) This is him dressed for the Mount Doom battle scene.

the sender writes:
As soon as I found out you love Lord of the Rings, I thought I would make this for you. (The picture is glued to a light cardboard, then sent as a handmade postcard!!!) This is my father in full costume! Apparently it was quite secretive around the set. Dad auditioned because they wanted tall people and dad is tall.

postmarked in 2009 with a New Zealand Christmas stamp
