Finally, I have a few photos of me wearing Nimrodel's gown to share...

I again thank God for the gift, and the joy it has given me.

These photos were taken by Eric as we were traveling Italy.  I think the date was about June 1, 2006, but I am not sure... We were traveling through Italy on our way to Florence, and found a  lovely romantic castle, Castello di Pavone, turned into a Hotel, along the way.   At night, I dressed in my Green Gown, but we took no photos.  In the morning, I dressed in the Nimrodel Gown for breakfast, and Eric took the pictures.  Thank you, Eric!

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.

Nimrodel's River Gown
An Inspired Project

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.
