Oh, and ... please excuse the little black string you may see there around my waist... It is the little tie I used to carry my newly acquired Eowyn-style Goblet, courtesy of the wonderful ladies at Kris' stand... Thanks Kris! I'm glad to have met you!
Ah! There he is! Smiling at my prince... No, not Aragorn, nor Faramir, but lo, my Eric!... Cheers!
P.S. Dieter...How's that for smiling?
Looking quite mischievous...
Now, where is he?
I really love putting this on and wearing it, so, I will have to find more excuses!
In the meantime, it is time for a toast! So, where is he?...
This last shot here, and used above as the link to my main page... was done at another place and time, by Kim...

Yvette's Costume Site...
I recreated Eowyn's Shieldmaiden dress, with the Brown Camp Skirt... To make the skirt, I vat-dyed the silk on my own... in my washing machine...
Step-by-step Dying Instructions are on my Construction Page, towards the bottom, under Fabrics...
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.

Eowyn's Sheildmaiden Gown
Brown Camp Skirt Construction
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.
