August 14, 2005... Well, I finished my reconstruction of Arwen's Arch Dress from The Lord of the Rings some time ago...and now I've finally managed to get into it and get some photos taken actually wearing it! I thank God for the gift...
This past weekend we spent some time at Big Cedar Lodge, and there Eric was so wonderful to take my pictures, as did also Lisa as I wore this gown... I'm thankful for them both, and thank them for taking time to take my photos! Eric took all the photos with the gold belt, and Lisa took the ones with the alternate belt, and the mantle... It was a great deal of fun!
You can visit my construction pages, linked on the other side of the lavender bar...
Also, all the photos can be clicked for larger, higher resolution images!
And... Here are some photos of the dress with the alternate belt, and the Mantle...
Peter Jackson's visualization of The Lord of the Rings woke my latent passion for costuming and inspired me to learn to sew.
This page and its links reflect my best efforts in Lord of the Rings costuming.
Projects linking to their own pages are featured here. Click the links in the navigation bar to visit the individual pages, or scroll further below to the image links and see a quick overview of the costumes.
Arwen's Arch Dress
Welcome to Yvette's
Nearly ten years ago I set out to teach myself to sew, so that I could create inspired costumes such as those featured on my site.
I created this site to share what I've done. It launched August 18, 2004, and has been growing ever-since.
In addition to costume construction pages, there are pages featuring portraits of the costumes being worn.
Costuming is a hobby I love documenting, but I do not do commissions, nor do I sell patterns.
Please visit where your interests lead you, and enjoy.
The navigation on my site is under construction. I'll be getting the links set up page by page. In the meantime, please bear with me.
