Arwen's Coronation Gown by ThreeRingCinema Arwen's Coronation Gown by ThreeRingCinema
Finally, I have some pictures of me in my Arwen Coronation gown!!!!!! This is the same basic pattern as the Blood Red gown and the Requiem gown. I finished this back in May, but I didn't get around to actually taking the pictures until this weekend. As you might be able to tell, this is my longest gown yet!!!!! I still have some leftover fabric too, which I should do something with....but it's not much. :D This fabric was only $3 a yard from JoAnn's!!!! I couldn't believe it when I saw it - it was the perfect color, and a great price!!! I got it a few years ago, and finally made it. The bead trim for the sleeves and neckline is something I bought, but I put so many more white (and green) beads on it, it hardly looks the same as before. I didn't make the headdress or the banner, but I did dress up the banner with some silk flowers. I had a lot of fun with this photoshoot, although it was one of the hottest days of the entire summer so far....Anyway, hope you like it!!!!!!!

Omg!!! I know you've had like billions of comments on did you use a template and that sort of things. I was just wondering if there was a general (sort of) shape so that it would end up (more or less) like a dress. It is completely and utterly amazing !!

Beautiful gown. :) I've always wanted to make that one. ^_^

One quick note, though; if you ever find the time to, you should probably sit own and hem those inner sleeves. :) A quick shirt-tail hem would easily keep them from fraying any more. :)

OMG! I am completely envious of you! *dies* :faint:
The dress is beautiful! I am completely shocked! This must have taken you a very long time to make for it to look as perfect as it does. The fabric look really smooth and comfortable, the fabric you used for under the sleeves is an interesting color too, doesn't so much as stand out, but blends in perfectly to match the gown. Beautiful. :heart:

This is just stunning! I can't believe you found the fabric in this color without having to dye it... I'm jealous and impressed! :D

Gorgeous! Did you make the pattern for this dress (or dresses) yourself or did you alter an existing pattern? If so, may I ask which one? I am making an elven gown (non-Lord of the Rings though) and this is the exact length of the train and sleeves that I would want for it.

Beautiful work! I love it when you find wonderful fabric on sale! (I just got some flocked taffeta at Jo-Ann's last month for $2.50 a yard) And I admire you for being able to work with so much velvet; because velvet is evil.
Gorgeous dress, with fantastic attention to detail.

Thank you! I love a good fabric sale too :) What are you making with your taffeta you got on sale? Velvet is such a pain to work with! Thank you very much about the dress and the detail :)

You're very welcome.
I'm making a bustle gown. The flocked taffeta is going to be the contrast of the apron and the bustle against the body of the gown, which is red faux silk. The pattern is an old Simplicity that I've tweaked a bit.
Whatever I have leftover will probably end up as doll dresses. I used some of the red scraps for contrast on a Tudor-style doll dress that I've got posted here on deviantart- which is one of the reasons why I know how evil velvet can be.

Three bucks for velveteen? WOW!! That's on the crazy train. Still got that leftover fabric? How bout a drawstring frilly pouch purse? Great job! That's alot of fabric to manage on the sewing machine. Esp this fabric that likes to slide all over the place.

It was a great deal on the fabric, and just the right color. It was quite a big train on the gown! I have some leftover fabric, I was thinking about making a matching purse. Might just do that some day :)

That seafoam green is one of my favorite colors. I've been painting a fairy with another stock gown that is coming along great. I'll use your gown next. Do it some justice cause it's beautiful and so are you (talented too)

Oh that's lovely! Did you embroider the upper sleeves? I can't tell from the photograph :( It's beautiful, I love the train.

Thank you! No I did not embroider the upper sleeves, I used a brocade fabric that I found at JoAnn Fabrics. Thank you again, glad you like it! :)

It looks like the inner sleeve has a raw edge? was that how it was in the movie or was it intentional?

The inner sleeve was not finished at the time of this photo.

ah I see!! I was going to suggest a marrowed edge but I'm guessing that's probably what you put on it. I love the fabric though it's totally gorgeous!

I know what you mean, fabric gets SO expensive! I was just lucky with finding this fabric =P It was on the sale table in the back of a JoAnn's and I almost walked past it - but then that faint green velvety glimmer caught my eye ;)
Well ALL of your costumes are fabulous and beautiful, you certainly chose amazing fabric and make the costumes astounding! :D

(i want something cool for my wedding... you know) JK!! you get to keep your work, and i probably don't have enough money... that could cost a fortune, it's so good!!!!! what else are youi making, Galadriel's dress? whatever it is... it'll be good.... YOU'RE REALLY GOOD AT THIS!!!!


P.S: have i already said how much i want that dress? yeah, ok then... If you aren't selling it, can you at least tell me how to make it? I wouldn't make it as well as you did, but I could try, at least... :D

Hi! :D I'm sorry for not replying to your comment earlier, I just noticed it, I haven't been on DA for a while =P I did make the gown myself, it did take a long time though! I've been making costumes for a while now, but I wouldn't say I'm a pro ;) But thanks so much for your compliments! I'd absolutely love to make gowns, costumes, and outfits to sell, especially for a special occasion like your wedding! I did make Galadriel's dress a few years ago, it's in the back of my gallery, but it's not that great.... =P
I didn't use a standard pattern for the gown, I made up my own pattern for it and just did adjusting so it fit me properly. I found the fabric for the gown at JoAnn Fabrics, and the trim as well - but I beaded the trim on my own. I never did finish hemming the yellow on the lining of the big sleeves though.... ;) Shh, don't tell ;) I really should finish that though so it doesn't fray. Of course if I were selling it I would though :) Thanks again for your comments! :D :hug:
