This was the first movie costume I ever tried to recreate, and it remains one of my favorites.
It was (mostly) completed in time for Halloween 2002, and improved for the premiere of the Fellowship extended
DVD in November 2002. All of Arwen's dresses are of course beautiful, but I think this one is the most functional, which
makes it pretty easy to wear for long periods of time (except for those pesky sleeves!).
The dress is based on Simplicity 9891, everyone's favorite generic elf pattern. I literally could not have created
this costume without the amazing tutorial from
alleycatscratch and their
associated mailing list.
