This guy travelled across New Zealand wearing a Gandalf costume


(From Lost at e Minor) While planning a six-month trip to New Zealand, photographer Akhil Suhas had a great idea: Why not get Gandalf as his tour guide?

In his series, entitled #GandalfTheGuide, Suhas brought along a Gandalf costume on his 9,000 mile adventure, making it seem like the grey wizard was with him on his journey through New Zealand’s stunning landscapes.

“I wanted a recurring subject in my photos and with so many photographers visiting the country, I figured that I needed to do something to set me apart!” he told Peta Pixel.

“I was watching the LOTR for the 5th time when I figured New Zealand is famous for 2 things: its landscapes and the LOTR + Hobbit Trilogies. So why not combine the two by having Gandalf in the landscapes?”

Initially, Suhas planned to take portraits, but found it difficult (after all, it’s not easy being a wizard).

“I tried the camera on a tripod with a timer shot, didn’t work for me,” he said. “So, I started asking the people I met along the way if they wanted to put on the outfit.”

And because it’s hard to pass up the chance to become Gandalf, people obliged! The resulting photographs are nothing short of epic.
