Elven Grove, Part 21

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.

Rhiannon's Elven Projects

Evenstar Choker, western style

I 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 itself.

Requiem Gown

Ascka - Brazil

I followed almost all the instructions on your web to create this gown.  The neck and sleeve are hand beaded.

Requiem Gown

Kristy - Virginia, USA

This is only the second dress I have made and I was very proud of it. I made it for Halloween to wear with my daughter to go trick or treat. It was a great dress to wear. This is a great pattern to use. Simple for the most part. The only thing that I changed was the collar. I used stretch pane for this dress. I did not realize at the time that the colors I picked out matched the one they used in the movie.



Victoria - United Kingdom

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 8.

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.

If you do not have a web site or a photo album, we can put the pictures our our server...  Contact us at scrapbook@alleycatscratch.com
