Okay okay so when a persons body is hanging by just the arms or arm with the force of gravity pulling down it causes hyperexpansion of the chest muscles and lungs and the person will eventually die of asphyxiation (or that’s the theory)
So how is Maedhros not dead?
I would to call your attention to the fact that Break has his eye closed because he doesn’t know where the camera is for him to look at and pretend that he can see have a good day.
It is not that Tolkien seems to have ‘believed in’ elves exactly, in the sense that Peter Pan means when he asks us to clap our hands. It is more that he seems to have loved the idea of them so much that he wanted to talk about them all the time, as if by talking about them, he could almost bring them into existence. Like a teenager with a crush on someone, like a sentimentalist with a grand ideal.
Fëanor. One of my favorite characters. :)

gurthang is a really rude sword
Oy! Sauron! Tell your kids to stop bullying mine!
He’s running sideways and upside down. I think he’ll be alright. So proud.
Finished the armor for my Maedhros cosplay!
This is the biggest and most ambitious leather working project I have ever done; and although it was done in two stages months apart, the design, drafting, cutting, tooling, dyeing, and assembly was all done in two days. When I get motivated, I get really motivated.
The tassets have a simple line gorged into them, but all the upper body pieces have a celtic knotwork pattern tooled into the edges.
The idea behind this is to draw inspiration from the armor in the LotR films, which I think is really the best part of the films, and dial it back several millennia as far as technology and armoring skills goes. If they have plate mail in the War of the Last Alliance, then the War of Wrath should in theory be the end of leather and chain and beginning of plate.
I presume that post-Thangorodrim Maedhros would favor his left and fight in a more dueling style; turning his body side face to the opponent - thus the heavy armor on one side of the body (rest of the arm armor not pictured due to armless mannequin). The right side will be wearing chain for practicality and I am making a shield for more heavy fighting.
Usually I get mad at my projects as soon as they’re finished, but this one I absolutely love.
Untold Stories: Amroth and Nimrodel [x]
Where now she wanders none can tell
In sunlight or in shade
For lost of yore was Nimrodel
And in the mountains strayed
But from the West has come no word
And on the hither shore
No tidings Elven-folk have heard
Of Amroth evermore
