|This was a commission for a set of ring wraith robes and gauntlets from Lord of the Rings.|
The robes are made of several layers of cotton and linen which amounts up to about 10m in fabric. It includes a padded hump which ties at the neck, and a the hood has a millinery wire and buckram construction inside it to make sure it hangs over the face correctly. Also included is a hood which keeps the wearers face hidden.
The gauntlets are made out of over 90 pieces of thermo plastic which are set in place with hundreds of rivets. They are fully articulate and comfortable to wear. The gauntlets are dry brushed and rusted for extra effect and sealed to prevent scratches.
I really like this costume and I am sad to see it go to the commissioner. I hope they like it as much as I do!
