Evenstar Choker, western style
bought the cheap Halloween Evenstar necklace online, scraped off the
matte finish per recommendations, and then pried off the plastic gems
(except for the center – it wouldn’t come out) and replaced them with
imitation turquoise cabochons I made out of polymer clay (kneading black
acrylic paint into the clay to create the tracery of dark inclusions.) I
painted the center gem with red nail polish to look like polished
jasper. I then incorporated the pendent into a quasi-Native American
choker made with bone tubes (aged by tea dyeing), small wooden beads,
and silver beads with ridges reminiscent of those on the Evenstar

one they used in the movie.

This dress was made
for the Oxford Tolkien Society Banquet 2005. It is made of a cream
brocade with a satin lining. The embroidery round the neckline is a
simple design of blue flowers and the circlet was made from bridesmaids
flowers. The whole costume cost about thirty pounds and was made in
about six evenings and one weekend! I also made a blue velvet cloak to
go with it.
||Terresa - USA
This is the basic dress. We will dress it up much more of course
later. This was an old dress and an old Curtain from the Thrift store
yesterday. Fabric cost only $6.40.
I lined the sleeves because it gets so cold here and my baby can
wear something under it that way. This was all her idea. She is
I did not use a pattern but have worked the Renaissance Fair for
fun 11 years so I have learned a lot about costumes there.
