Both visually mesmerizing and full of heart, The Hobbit was a spectacular start for the upcoming prequel trilogy by Peter Jackson. The film featured breathtaking views, a captivating score and delightful characters with unique senses of style. Portrayed by James Nesbitt, Bofur was no exception. His most notable features include the large mustache that curls out on each end and an outlandish hat that is already being produced for future purchase.
Bofur’s hat is simply awesome. It is clearly an extension of his personality. According to the character description released by the studio:
“Endearing and likable, Bofur has a disastrous tendency to state the obvious and blurt out things without thinking. With a love of music and a fine singing voice, Bofur delights in good food and good company and is unfailingly optimistic. Though not especially brave, he will do his best to help those in need, especially those he counts as friends. Along with his brother Bombur and his cousin Bifur, Bofur joined the Quest for the Lonely Mountain partly to seek his fortune – and partly because he was told the beer was free.” (Source)
There you have it! He is a whimsical man, and therefore, deserves to have a whimsical hat.
