Here are my portrait photos of my Eowyn Shieldmaiden Dress, completed August 8, 2004... This is my first full-fledged LOTR recreation. I thank God for the Joy of this Gift...
These photos were taken by Kim Underdown and Eric, my husband, and two separate times and places... Kim's photos were taken in September of 2004 and the Arboretum in Kansas City, and Eric's were taken on August 13 at Big Cedar Lodge in Branson, Missouri... Taking the photos was loads of fun, and I thank Kim and Eric for the time they took to do this with me...
My construction notes for this dress are linked over to the right of the bar, as are notes and photos of my Eowyn Brown Camp Skirt...
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
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.
