This costume was inspired by the outfit Bilbo wears in the Hobbit Movies. My customer was looking for something designed in a similar color palette and style. We had to make some alterations to the shirt and pants style to accurately fit a female figure. The photos below feature pictures of the how the costume turned out.
The robe was created by quilting many styles of textured luxurious fabrics together. Fabrics featured were brocades, velvet, tapestry, rich suede and some other random blends. I used a lovely crepe backed satin lining for the robe to give it a nice feel and drape on the inside.
Quilted pockets also feature hidden inside pockets with zippers. Perfect for hiding comic con tickets and hobbit snacks.
The back of the robe can be seen here. I really liked how all the textures and colors came together in the quilted style to form a unique look perfectly suited to a hobbit.
Costume also included a striped linen shirt with vintage buttons and matte green velvet trousers.
