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.
Costume pages are linked in the navigation bar to the far right. 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 site has been undergoing reconstruction. I hope in the end it will be easier to navigate.
Costume planned for 2013-14: Thorin Oakenshield.

New Portraits Pages:
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 costuming!
My first full-fledged LOTR recreation was Eowyn's Shieldmaiden Gown from the Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King. I completed this gown on August 8, 2004, and featured it here on my main page for one year... Now, I've created a separate page for this dress, so I can use this page as an index... I opened this main page on August 18, 2005... New projects on their own pages are featured below... Click the images to visit!
