Dressed As Gandalf, Lord Of The Rings Superfan Wanders In New Zealand

If you are a fan of Lord Of The Rings, then you must be knowing that the breath-taking scenes were filmed in New Zealand. It is surely the adventurous capital of the world and for obvious reasons.

One superfan of the franchise took it to another level as he travelled through New Zealand dressed as Gandalf. Akhil Suhas travelled both islands with the costume and took some mesmerising pics to share with people.

The 21-year-old said: “I was watching the Lord of the Rings for the fifth time and figured that New Zealand is famous for two things – its landscapes and Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, so why not combine the two by having Gandalf in the landscapes?

“Once I started my road trip, I realised that I was travelling solo and wondered who would dress up, since I wanted to take the pictures.

“I tried the camera on a tripod with a timer shot, which didn’t work since the wizard hat needed careful adjustment because it’s flimsy.”

He eventually found a few tourists along the way who didn’t mind becoming Gandalf the Grey here and there.

His 15,000km journey took him to some of the amazing beaches and incredible heights. All the while he was rocking with the costume.
