Welcome to Yvette's!
a costume site...
Here is my reconstruction (in progress) of Arwen's Bridge Dress, as seen in The Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring...   Meeting with Aragorn on the Rivendell Bridge... 
Arwen's Bridge Dress...
The Fabric... 
The Mock-up...
I will use the beaded chiffon to the left... here below.... I know it is not color-accurate...  The original being white... but I have just enough of this beaded fabric to make this dress... and I think  it will make a very nice alternate version!

I have also used this mock-up for my nearly complete Mirkwood Elf Gown, below, and linked to my Mirkwood page...
Black and White Sketches...
The complete gown, front and back...                                 The undergown, with                                                                                               optional fitted sleeves.
and Sketches with Color...
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.

Arwen's Bridge 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.
