Planning (Posted 1st June 2015)

I drafted sketches of the outfit Legolas wears in DOS and despite him wearing several that I want to do, settled on the lighter fighting outfit he wears because of a) cost as it'll probably be the cheapest and b) I'm wearing this outfit in summer so it needs to be as lightweight as possible. The coat I've decided to make out of velvet as it was the best material I could find and had the right weight; all other materials were too light and wouldn't look right. I'm almost positive Legolas wears three layers; his jacket, mithril chain mail and an under-shirt. In the interest of not boiling to death, I'm not making the chain mail and instead decided to sew the mithril collar onto the shirt as that is all that can be seen anyway. (apologies for the bad quality photo; I couldn't be bothered taking a better one)
