Description
I love Arwen Evenstar and decided to dress up as her to attend the Gala Premiere of Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in December 2003. My favourite costume worn by her is the long flowing white dress she wears when she comes on the horse to help Aragon get Frodo and the ring safely to Rivendell, just before The Crossing scene in Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, when she saves Frodo and crosses the river by riding through the water.

In order to make this costume, I found a long sleeved cream top with large flowing peasant sleeves. I also ordered a long cream prayer skirt from Sri Lanka. I then bought trinkets and satin and silver printed wide ribbon rimmed in silver balls to sew onto the top, and then I sewed flowers and tiny pearls to the sleeves and bodice top. I added a long sash of the same wide printed ribbon to the waist, to hang down in front of the skirt, and a thin silver chain with a tiny pendant as a headdress.
