Costume Information

The lack of ladies in Tolkien's works has led me to designing my own elf lady to cosplay...Why i chose an elf, i'll never know because i'm a shortbutt.

I've based the costume around what we've seen Tauriel and the Mirkwood elves wear in the sneakpeeks from desolation of smaug, with some creative license taken. Be chillin with my gurl Ruth as Tauriel on the Sunday ;D
