Well, here are my portrait photos of my latest LOTR recreation project:  Arwen's Lavender Beaded Gown!  I have enjoyed this project, recreating Arwen's Lavender Bead Gown, and this gown has also been great fun to wear!  Again, I thank God for the joy of this gift...  And so... here I finally have myself in the dress!  photographed many times in various angles and light!   You can click on any image for a closer view... 
The photos were taken by my mom,  and my daughter, Lisa, just a few days after Christmas 2004...  Thank you both!  I love you!
Here is a wonderfull photo-shopped image by Ela!  Thank you, Ela! :)

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 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.
