Middle-earth Groups 4

Sometimes it does work to separate out costumes by a character or category.  In our "Group" section we will feature folks that have made a LOT of costumes and some fun party pictures of big groups.

Work here represents recreations at all skill levels.

Picture hyperlinks will open to more details about the costumes.

Arwen and Aragorn - Coronation

Ariel - Oregon, USA

Niniala Elfa and Jhavimer the Soldier

Silvia - Spain

My fiancé and I  made these outfits for the 2004 carnival  in Madrid.  These are decorated by hand with fabric paints.  The fabrics are sinteticas and polipiel.  We also used cardboard and Christmas adornments.  Altogether we took 3 months constructing it. The designs are imagination mine and based on the characters of Tolkien.

Gimli, the Argonath & more

Marla & Family - Pennsylvania, USA

Click the pic to found out how they made their costumes and pics of more costumes.  Find out how a 6" man plays Gimli w/o the help of camera magic.

Arwen and Three Eowyn's



Kate - Maryland, USA

I'm the one wearing Arwen's Blood Red gown, and my sister is wearing Eowyn's Green dress. I also attached one of us with two other girls we met at the 2004 Maryland Renaissance Festival

These were basically my first "full size" costume attempts, but I was also working on two 16th century Renaissance costumes simultaneously, and have worked with doll patterns before. The pattern I used for both costumes was Simplicity 4940, and each one was slightly modified.

For the Arwen gown, I used a stretch blue velvet that appeared almost black when the nap was reversed, and a red velveteen for the sleeves (which I simply hemmed because the underside of the material had a satin appearance and worked fine for lining). Around the neckline was where I modified the pattern because it didn't include the cap sleeves or the thin red border that lines the trim.

For the Eowyn dress, I used a stretch green crushed velvet and a green brocade for the yolk, sleeve lining, and skirt center. The center of the dress was where this one was modified because the pattern didn't include the inset, so I cut panels out of both types of material, hemmed the crushed green panel from the waist down, basted it to the brocade from the waist up, and finally sewed the entire panel into the rest of the dress- while keeping the hemmed section free so that it could later be pinned to the side to reveal the brocade in the center.

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
