The cosplay-adorned fan recalled her experience meeting The Lord of the Rings’ Elijah Wood on Imgur, writing, “As I was walking up to take a picture of Elijah Wood, I said, ‘You have gorgeous eyes! We would make great babies!’ He immediately started blushing and laughing so hard that he face planted my [expletive].”
