RP comes to life by FenigDurak RP comes to life by FenigDurak
One of my more simple costumes. The top had a dual purpose as this RPG character's costume and the temporary piece of a tree faerie costume. I didn't much like that tree faerie costume as one of the wings refused to cooperate, but I like how the character costume went together.

I like to think that I captured her simplicity of heart in the dress. Thk forward to scraping this one and starting something different.

Very pretty! I love how the setting is perfect for the costume. :)

That was taken a few minutes away from Devil's Head along the hiking trail. We kept passing regular hikers dressed in your typical hiking clothes who gave us many a strange look for my dress and Steve's cloak.

Heehee, that must have been so fun! I intend to wander around in costume when it's a little less cold. It's fun to confuse the normal passerbys. :p

The hem on the undersleeves? I used bias tape and hand stitched it in with an invisible whipstitch. The rest of the top is fully lined, so there's hardly a hem in there. I try to avoid traditional hemming if I can. It's boring and can be so ugly at times.

The white lacing wasn't my first choice either, but I was running out of time and already had it in my supply box.

That's a wonderful dress. I love the shape and design of the sleeves, even tho the white lacing makes my eyes bleed. :D
What's the hem like? It's pretty darn difficult to make out in this picture.

Don't think I haven't thought about it too! Though I felt silly enough to be the only person in my theater Dec 16th in costume for the midnight preview of LoTR.

Let alone how odd I felt to be hiking up a mountain in this dress... >P

Yeah, a woman cornered me after the showing to get me to make one for her. What could I do? I gave her my email address and said I'd think about it. :dubious:

... lol. At about eleven, I walked back in the line to talk to these people who had on these amazing costumes... they looked just like the ones that Aragorn, Legolas, Arwen, and Eowyn wore in the movies. I complimented them on their costumes and asked what patterns they had used ... they didn't use any... they all work at Disguises, that HUGE costume store at Kipling and Colfax. I mean holy cow these costumes were incredible...! :lmao: They had all of the details from the embroidery on Legolas' shirt (although it was fabric paint, it was PRETTY DARN COOL) to the White Tree on Aragorn's bracers. Soooo awesome. :D
