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!!!!!!!

Arwen is J.R.R. Tolkien

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. :)

Thank you for stating; CORRECTLY; that this the CORONATION gown and not the "wedding dress" like so many others.

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.
