Information

A costume commission for my Brother. Worn at Starfury 'Fusion'.

Deppalike, my brother, decided to join me as an elf for when I wore my Legolas. Unfamilar with a sewing machine at the time (I since have taught him) my borther commissioned me to make it.

All pieces were made from patterns I designed. The Crown was made by my brother as he was much better at prop work at the time. The boots are shop brought.

The robe was made from dress velvet with a patterned cotton for the lining. My brother then added hand painted detail to the sleeves and back.

The tunic was made from duchess satin with hand appliqued sliver detail.

The belt was a two part picece. Both made from burgandy seasucker fabric. The main band was laced up at the back with the sash looping through the front. The deatil on the front was hand sewn.

The trousers were made from the same fabric as the belt.

When it was worn the crown was plaited into the hair using complex plaiting and hair extentions. Butterfly clips were added to finish the elfen style.

Latex elf ears where then added to complete the look.

Awesome! Also awesome to see pics of your brother. When you say you're twins I didn't really think you'd look so similar. Mainly because my mum's an identical twin yet they look so different. -Tab

Thank you ever so much, Sawyer. Seawaterwitch, I did consider Arwen at one point but Legolas suited me better. I have made two Arwen costumes for two friends. Thank you ever so much ;)
