This costume was inspired by the one worn by Arwen in the Fellowship of the Ring. Many LOTR fans will know it as the "Chase Dress". Thus I named it as such.
The costume version here is "inspired by" the movie version. I do not claim to have it identical to the original, but I think it captures the look and feel of an elven princess riding gown. Perfect for saving hobbits or in your own daily adventures.
Here is the movie version worn by Liv Tyler.... Really great movie detail here
*Click on the photos for a much larger view.
I am afraid the pictures do not do it justice. The tones and hues of the fine suede and contrasting silk sashes do not show their full brilliance with a camera. However, it shall give you an idea of what the costume looks like. The fabric is so soft!
Collar detail above....and the full bodice detail below.
The costume is made from a soft dove gray suede. Fully detailed and lined with a silk blend fabric that swishes and flows in the wind.
The lower white sleeves is a silk fabric that features a fine textured pleating. Sadly a detail not fully visible in photos.
above you can see some of the embroidery detail....collar and sleeves. All embroidery is done by hand.
Last, but not least.... a shot of the costume next to the LOTR1 Poster.
