The Singing Elf

Hinke - Neatherlands

Farewell Dress,. black version

It's made of a fine shiny and soft fabric with a rose pattern in it.  I use this gown for singing in concerts.



Elven Vulcan Cross Culture Gown

I mixed Elven and Vulcan culture in this piece. It's a beautiful white dress with a robe. The dress is a fabric with small leaf patterns in it. 

I wear a simple dress under it and put on the white one like a coat. It doesn't show on the picture but the lower sleeves of the white dress are leaf patterned, somewhat similar to for example the upper sleeves on Legolas' jacket. It was tricky work. The picture is made by a good friend of mine Nathalie.

Third Age Elven Armor





For the armor I used funfoam. I modified the patterns from Julia's website to make them larger in the chest and hip. I tried to connect plates relatively seamlessly, mostly by brushing glue on the seams and reinforcing it with hidden pieces of foam.

For the clothing, I used a simple red cotton for the skirt and maille shirt backing. The maille has been made of strips of a cut up plastic garbage bag since I'm on a budget.  I have sewn the strips onto the shirt and then gave it a glue coating as the plastic will curl when you spray paint it. I did the same with the maille skirt. I've found a cheap fabric which I have no clue what to name is but it turned out to be excellent for the undershirt with sleeves.

I've connected the red skirt to it for convenience. The cape is made of a red fabric which might be cotton. It is very soft and flowing so excellent for a cape :) I've also made it much longer than Haldir's as I think short capes don't look so cool, at least not for a captain of the Galadrim ;)

Elvish Wedding

Deb - New South Wales, Australia

Arwen's Requiem Gown


The velvet is 100% rayon, the underdress is acetate/rayon with embroidered metallic thread. The bullion trim was from an Indian sari and trim shop, the thin trim on the overdress is a Chinese trim. The lower sleeves are organza.
