Costume Information

Cost : £200
Awards : Exclusive Legolas figure from Games Workshop
Time Taken : 1 month roughly

This is the first ever version of Legolas I made.

I hand made all it myself except for the belts, long bow, arrows and shoes. The tunic pattern I made as I struggled to find one close at the time. I hand painted on all the details. The tunic is made from suedette.

The quiver was made from Modroc (Plaster on fabric strips). I had loads left over from college so I decided to use it. The whole thing was sealed in PVA glue then painted in acrylic. Finally it was finished with spray varnish.

I loved how this turned out and got to wear it a few times. I got to help with Games Workshop display at a big convention in the UK (one of the SFX magazine events).

Thank you ever so much :D.

@Flamewizo. I can't make May Expo (Its looking very unlikely anyway) but might be able to make Oct. If I can I would love to bring Legolas with me. It will be my Lothlórien one which is very similar to this one.

Thanks for the comments. This is one of my fave costumes so its great to hear feedback.

Yes, you can shoot two arrows at once but not like how it is done in the movies.

Thank you ever so much.

It was actually the newer/Lothlorien one you saw but it still had elements of this one. Btw, it was great to meet you ^_^
