August 20, 2005... After we spent the last two evenings at Big Cedar taking photos of the Arch and the Mirkwood, we spent our last night at Big Cedar photographing my reconstruction of Arwen's Lavender Beaded Gown from The Lord of the Rings... So, that was August 13, 2005, and it was a very pretty night! I thank God for this gift.
And, I thank Eric and Philipp for being willing to photograph me... Eric for the third night in a row, and Philipp for the second! Philipp's photos really turned out nice on this night.
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 Lavender Beaded Gown
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.
