Elven Grove, Part 5

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 Rose Dress


we actually only used one pattern - which was for the 3/4 sleeves, and that was McCall's P305. The rest of the dress was basically put together just by eyeing it. It is made of burgundy velvet, dark mauve lace sleeves, and a dark mauve underdress (probably polyester). All the fabric except for the belt, came from dresses we bought at the thrift store. The belt is a piece of fabric we found in the sale bin at Joann's.

Arwen's Chase Outfit

J_B_brouwer / Steelweaver - Netherlands

The ubiquitous modified Simplicity 9891 pattern. Made in a suedecloth with a subtle vine print that can only be seen in a certain light and some crinkle polyester that is light grey, but looks white next to the darker fabric.



Arwen's Mourning Gown

Trystan  --  California, USA

Patterns & fabric: Good ol' reliable Simplicity 9891 for the body of the dress & McCall's 3663 for the sleeves, with lots of tinkering on both. The gown is made of black velvet with gold lace/braid trim, plus a black chiffon veil. The crown is papier-mache.

Arwen's Rivendell Farewell Dress

Pattern: Simplicity 9891 with modifications on the sleeves, sash, and bottom hem.



Ang  -  Rhode Island, USA

Fabric: The dress was made of Art Nouveau Ming Brocade in lavender with silver swirls. The under sleeves and sash were dull satin in lavender and plum respectively, and the underskirt was lavender chiffon georgette.

Notes: For the embroidery on the sash and collar, I used pearlesque fabric paint, silver on the collar and lavender on the sash. The buttons I chose for down the front were small, pea-sized, silvertone Celtic knots. The ears were Woochie latex appliances, and the wig (which is too light in color) is a 30 inch parted straight wig which I styled myself. All in all I spent a little over a week putting it together, however it took me a lot longer to gather all the materials, since they were rather costly.

For more information and pictures, please visit my site devoted to the costume at: http://trowashrine.tvheaven.com/cosplay/arwen/

This was my first time ever actually following and slightly modifying a pattern to create a complete garment. Usually I would take bits and pieces, sew very little, and add on to current garments for previous costume creations. Prior to this costume I worked mainly with anime character costumes for conventions.
