LittleBigPlanet makers Media Molecule have noticed the change in the weather, and it reminded them of the beliefs of the ancient inhabitants of their native U.K., the druids.
The druids believed the sun to be hottest at midday during the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. This was the biggest holiday of the year for them and they met in vast stone circles to perform religious rituals.
Today, science has confirmed the summer solstice to the exact day. In celebration of the druids and their awesome astronomical knowledge, LittleBigPlanet will have a free druid costume for download, but it will only be available for one week.
The beardy druid costume is available on June 18 in the U.K. and June 25 in the U.S. Don’t forget, because unlike solstices, beardy druid Sackboy is not coming back.
UPDATE: The costume has been delayed one week in Europe, according to a tweet from Media Molecule.
"Solstice costume delayed in Europe until next week - sorry folks," reads the message, followed by an empathetic smile.

sweet this will go well with all sorts of new levels. LBP just needs new commercials, I mean it's a truely unlimited game with new levels every day sure some suck but that's the fun of digging through them to find the ones that are really spectacular.
also @ #7, you fail at life and everything in it.

@7 you know no one likes you here, take your fanboy head and get out

Wow, it's nice to see there are some developers supporting their consumers with occassional free content. Sure, it's not great, but as a limited edition costume, this will be a nice little freebie to add to my collection.
Preferably they should release more level packs, ideally free and especially with Trophies, but all the new constumes are getting a little tedious. The MGS DLC worked fantastically, I'd like to see Media Molecule design another downloadable level packs based on other games: I'd love to see their own take on a Dead Space themed pack! They'd be things I'll unhesitantly add to my collection, along with their corresponding Trophy set to follow up those from the MGS DLC.

if I download this costume, can I use it on another PS3 with the same account?
my PS3 died and I'm using now my sister's PS3 until I get mine back ...

Will definitely be downloading this one!
Also got my LBP Tshirt from MM today, had a rasta-looking sackboy on it, brilliant! :D

Is this the closest to Gandalf, LOTR content would be EPIC but Blind Guardian would be beyond EPIC
