Here are some pictures from the Convention.
The Orc is a fellow from Sideshow Toys
who was made-up on stage during Richard Taylor's Make-up and Weapons panel.
Dominic Monaghan (Merry)
Cast&Crew from left to right are:
Lawrence, Billy Boyd, Elijah Wood, Dom Monaghan, Sala Baker, and 2 fellows
from WETA (I believe Daniel is the name of the fellow on the far right).
Sala Baker & Lawrence Makoare (Sauron
& Lurtz respectively)
Richard Taylor gleefully demonstrating
on Lawrence how they used K-Y Jelly during make-up sessions (they smeared
it on the Orcs' backsides so the latex make-up would bend with them).
John and Chris (Calisuri) from OneRing
