Elven Grove, Part 1

Here we feature costumes from our folks who have recreated some of the wonders of the Elven folks.

Works are placed in here chronologically.  The first sets were made even before the movie came out.

Work here represents recreations at all skill levels.

Picture hyperlinks will open to more details about the costumes.

Pics from the very first folks to recreate the elven people...

Arwen's Angel Dress

ArtistGirL74                     USA

I made my version of "Arwen's" "Angel Dress". I am a full figured woman who had trouble finding patterns that fit my size and was unable to buy the ready made version because of this. I wanted to help anyone like myself who feels left out of the fun because of size." Posted because my goal is to help others like myself who feel left out.

Check out the construction detail and the patterns used on her web site:

Ginger's Galadriel Crown

Ginger                    Illinois, USA

I have been costuming seriously for about 4 years, but I've been sewing for 8. This, however, is my first attempt at metalworking.

Eowyn's Riding Dress


Orchid Elf Dress

Naira                                    Texas, USA
bulletI used pattern 9891 from Simplicity.  I left off the drape at the neckline and put bias tape around it instead, and then added a decorative store-bought trim. I made different sleeves from a pattern I had already made. I found both the fabric and the trim at Hancock Fabrics.

Liz's Mirror dress

 Liz G                                    New Jersey, USA

I started with Simp's 9891, first made in muslin, and then remade with different seams (ie a lot less and in different places). So it's  probably more accurate to say half 9891 half imagination.
