Elven Grove, Part 13

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

Work here represents recreations at all skill levels.

Picture hyperlinks will open to more details about the costumes.

Arwen's Requiem Gown

More on this dress and other outfits on her website: http://aimeemajor.com/images/costumes/

Aimee S, - So. California, USA

Patterns used: I started with a basic jumper pattern for the underdress and overdress. I made the muslin cover more than needed, put it on and drew the neckline the way I wanted. I then chopped up a few different patterns to get a basic upper sleeve and add a train. The lower sleeve is a basic "U".

Fabric: The main overdress is a soft stretchy velvet. The upper sleeve is a hand beaded (by me) overlay on a darker blue fabric (the same as used for the body of the underdress.) The lower sleeve is a transparent silver fabric with little silver leaves and vines on it.  (They are slightly sparkly) The fabric came like that. However, the trim on both the under and overdress and sleeves is doubled and sometimes tripled up silver lace trim that I then hand beaded with  sequins, spherical, and bugle beads (all silver tones). I've been costuming off and on for a few years, however this was one of my first major "futzing" with changing patterns and making new patterns attempt!

This dress was made after being invited to join some of my friends in a LOTR singing group. We ended up becoming the One Ring Circus, and now we do other costuming things together as well. I'm looking forward to doing more LOTR costumes.

Arwen Requiem Gown

Katie (Ceit) - USA

It's made from a very modified Butterick 6630, using mostly recycled fabric from the first version of the costume.  I spent about four months on this costume, what with all the beading, and wore it to two events: the ROTK premiere (still in progress at the time), and my homecoming banquet in January 2004 (finished!).  A LOT of hand work went into this dress, and I am inordinately delighted by how *sparkly* it is!

I *highly* recommending Aradani Studio's ears (http://www.aradani.com/elvesofaradan/indexmain.htm).  I ordered their small ear prosthetics, unpainted, and made them up using regular liquid foundation, brown eye shadow, and blush.  Also, I applied them with false eyelash glue, since I've worked with spirit gum before and it's nasty stuff.  It all worked amazingly well, and I got compliments specifically about my ears at the premiere.

Arwen's Requiem Cloak & Blood Red Gown

Requiem cloak

The fabric was 63 inch wide, lilac, burnout, stretch velvet.  I used the entire width of the fabric and made a full circle cloak.  For the hood I used the Fellowship Cloak hood pattern, leaving a 6-8 inch slit on the top of the hood.  I self lined it.  The front and bottom edges of the cloak were serged with a rolled hem.

The rest of my notes are on my website: http://www.geocities.com/blackdragon56/requiemcloak.html
