Back in 2003 I started sewing and many of the garments I made were inspired by the "Lord of the Rings" Trilogy. If you recreate, or trying to recreate a costume from a movie, they can never look like the original. It is just not possible. Some of them are however very intricate, and needed years to be finished.
Some are being reworked right now.
I will have to come up with additional pics later.
This is one of Arwen´s gowns, that appears briefly in "The Return of the King"
What´s really interesting is seeing the colours change over the years. The silk velvet of the outer dress used to be a slate/silverish/shiny blue. Having been exposed to a lot of sun the colour has changed into a slate/violet/ shiny blue, that actually looks even more like the original dress ( that I was fortunate enough to have a look at in Berlin, Babelsberg)
