This post is best read while listening to this music
Here I am with the 4th installment of my Arwen dress making of.
You can read all my other posts about this dress here
I have recieved many comments and emails asking how my Arwen Dress was coming along......and if I haven't finished it yet, why was it taking me so long?
Well, the very simple reason is....
I only work on this dress when I am not doing customer orders.
So, maybe on Saturday evenings or Sunday afternoons. Maybe.
The beading was also taking me a rather long time to complete and then I ran out of beads! Thankfully, the store where I purchased them was able to custom order more for me. So I could complete the neckline...it would have been rather tragic to have only half of my neckline beaded!
Well, with all that to say....... I have a little something to show you.
Yes, yes...I do. A small sneak peak....
This is a costume I have wanted for many years and it is hard to belive I finally finished it!
The poor un-finished dress has been sitting in a box for a long time, but no more!
Once I slipped those elven slippers on...It felt like I was trying on a wedding dress....so much fun! It totally makes me feel like an elf. :)...or a princess.
I still do not have a crown yet, but we shall see what comes of that.
I am just so happy this gown is done.
Maybe I have elvish blood or something...I could wear these all of my days.
More pictures coming soon!!!
Have a magical day...
I have had many comments and e-mails from ladies asking "could you please post tons of pictures of this dress when you finish?"...and yes, I shall try.
Currently the weather is far to bad to step out of doors in such a gown, but I shall model it for you all when the weather gets better. In the mean time my kind dress form Jean Grey shall do the job for me, she is my body double. ;)
