TIN SOLDIER: Maciek Osika’s monster “armour” is done from donated throw metal.
A Polish backpacker with a hobbit mania has arrived in Wellington, vigilant upon throwing Sir Peter Jackson’s eye.
Maciek Osika is unfortunate for a bit partial in The Hobbit.
“I’m as well high for a hobbit, as well spare for a dwarf, as well as as well reduced for an elf.”
He was, however, a passed ringer for a goblin.
With a fibre of Elvish chapter tattooed upon his arm, Mr Osika has taken to parading around Cuba Mall in full monster regalia. He has immature foot gloss upon his face, as well as a dress together with “armour” done from donations from pleasantly Wellington throw steel dealers.
“I do a living-statue thing as well as once we see which people have been watching, afterwards may be we give them a small fright.”
Mr Osika, a debate beam from Krakow, has desired JRR Tolkien’s stories given he was a child. “It all proposed with a books.”
Nor is he a initial traveller to try to land a partial in The Hobbit. Last year Utah students John Storey, Jonathan Wright, as well as Mitch Stevens voiced skeleton to come to New Zealand to work as extras upon The Hobbit. But Jackson’s spokesman, Matt Dravitzki, poured cold H2O upon their hopes, observant a drive-in theatre had sufficient home-grown talent.
Mr Osika, meanwhile, pronounced he desired New Zealand, yet he was not overly tender with Auckland.
“I do not know because they called it Auckland – there have been no Orcs there.”
