Eowyn's Shieldmaiden

Liz D. - Wisconsin, USA

Patterns: for the dress, I started with Simplicity 5843 (view C), but by the end, I modified it pretty much beyond distinction. The vest was just an approximation that ended up working, and the corset was from a design featured on this site.

Fabrics: I bought fabrics that were very cheap, mostly because this was my first time ever creating a costume. While you can tell that the chemise and the vest are not exactly up to par, it still created the effect. I use two different trims on the vest/corset: one of thicker, gold beading around the collar and the shoulder caps, then a flatter, gold scroll for the corset. Other info: This was the first time I ever made a costume, and I hope it won't be my last. I wore this at the premiere of ROTK and had a lot of fun.


Formal Inspired by the White Wool




Katie (Ceit) - USA
This was my formal dress for my senior banquet, spring of 2004.  It's based on Eowyn's "White Wool" gown, though without embellishment.  It's made from Butterick 6630, which has an empire waist.  I'm considerably more curvy than Miranda Otto, and since I wanted to look good rather than authentic, I used something with more shaping than the original.  The eggshell-colored poly crepe is from, as is the ivory charmuese satin that the sleeves are lined with.  The dress is very heavy, just from the amount of fabric in it--it weighs at least five pounds all by itself!  It has a lovely liquid drape, though, and everyone tells me that it was the most successful and flattering formal I ever made.

Eowyn's Shieldmaiden Dress




Mirjana -  Austria

 Actually I didn't use any pattern, because my mum is a dressmaker. I only helped her with the corset, because I used Katherine's pattern and as my mum doesn't speak English I had to do most of the work, which was actually great fun. I'm a beginner and when I started I was a little bit afraid that I wouldn't manage to make the corset, but in the end it was really easy (thanks to Katherine's detailed description)! To be honest, I don't know what kind of fabric it was, but it looked and felt like cotton, but it wasn't.

King Theoden's sword

Byron H. - Colorado, USA

The design is inspired from King Theoden's sword. I made the hilt from solid oak with a piece of inlayed walnut. The blade is pine and painted silver. I wrapped the handle in leather to make it look a little more rustic.

Eowyn's Green Gown

Tanja - Switzerland

I'm a young dressmaker for the theater from Switzerland.

I made many Lord of the Rings costumes for my fiends and myself. Some are like this example exactly from the movie, and others (mostly elves) costumes designed by myself.

The patterns I always create by myself, so no one costume is like the other. On my website, I have many pictures from this and all other costumes. Take a look: . . Click on "angebot".
