Forest elf archery dress

The following costume is one I designed for a customer who was looking for something that was inspired Forest Elves and it also needed to allow for archery movements. We decided to go for a look made from brown and green textiles. The corset and gauntlets are created from vegan leather. The hood and sleeves are also removable depending on the weather and event. 

more details of the costume can be seen below. Hem is a high low effect.

The costume included a belt that was detailed with beads and vintage lace. A bag was also attached to the bag to allow for each of carrying special items at events and festivals.

arwen coronation dress

The following costume was inspired the green coronation gown worn by Arwen in the Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. I used a more sage green colored velvet, but I tried to capture all of the details in the orginal dress. All bead and embrodiery work was done by hand.

Matching shoes were also created to complete the look. Long flowing sleeves and a train cascade gracefully to the floor. 

 

arwen blood red dress

This commission costume was inspired by the blood red dress Arwen wears in Lord of the Rings: Two Towers. The costume was inspired by the oringal movie gown, but not all details are identical. Silk velvet and bridal trims were used to accent this dress. I also dyed brocade to match the blood red velvet sleeves.

The following dress was inspired by Galadriel's dress in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. A stunning beaded fabric from France was used as an overlay for the complete dress and flowing elf sleeves. The belt is a beaded combination of crystal work and silk fabrics. The dress was inspired by the orginal one worn by Galadriel, but not all the details are idential. This was merely used as inspariton in creating the look.

The following costumes were inspired by Arwen's Riding Dress in The Fellowship of the Ring. This dress has also been called Arwen's Chase Dress in the cosplay community.

arwen battle dress

The following was inspired by an Arwen dress from a deleted scene featured in Lord of the Rings: Two Towers. The costume was supposed to be featured in the Helm's Deep battle, but Arwen was cut from the scene to maintain authenticity to Tolkiens orginal work.

custom elf gowns

I have created many elf gowns as custom commissions in color schemes and designs inspired by each customer. Many of these designs were more budget friendly by using panne velvet and satin fabrics. A selection of some of my favorite custom orders can be seen below.

dark elf blue and black dress

The following costume was inspired by a perfume ad featuring Eva Green. I used that ad for the color scheme inspiration. Other elements included classic dark elf fantasy style sleeves and a corset bodice. A bag hangs from the waist belt to allow for ease of movement when stashing items. Corset is fully boned and the under dress is a chiffon blend. Lots of beads were added to the bodice and sleeve details.
