Okay, I feel pretty comfortable that I know what I'm doing with old Gandalf here.
Now, Gandalf doesn't really have a home, hence the 'Wandering Wizard' title, so I don't expect he has many changes of clothes. Plus, the wandering? It's been going on for a long, long time. Thousands of years. Wizards don't really seem the type to pick every little burr out of their robes or mend every little snag, hence all the little things caught in his clothes.
Fingerless gloves because they are cool and allow maximum dexterity for spells and pipe-lighting. He is also described in the book as having a silver scarf (way cool) and gigantic black boots (also cool).
Number two up there is number one in my heart. The final Gandalf is going to have a lot of his attributes.
What's next week? I'm on vacation, but I'm going to try and keep on track. I'm postponing Goblins for another couple of weeks, but there's fun stuff coming. Hint: TROLLS.
Also, Kali and I are watching the Fifth Element RIGHT NOW and that movie is amazing. It's aging like wine. Plus, designs by Moebius and Jean Paul Gautier? Too great.
