4th November 2010: Still not complete I got to use this dress for the Oct Expo, but there's still a lot to do on it. The most important things are the belt and the trimming around the neck. Will be done asap.
26th October 2010: Progress! I just noticed my last journal was about not finding the right fabric, so I guess I should update with saying: fabric has been found! Fabric has been cut out and the dress is now in the process of being put together ^__^ The yoke proved to be a pain. I'm really not used to sewing fancy stuff like that. But it's almost done now, and hopefully it will look all right :) Belt pices are about 50% complete. So Eowyn should be complete for Expo! :D
17th October 2010: Setback Bah, I was hoping I would be finished with the dress when this weekend was over. No such luck. I spent several hours looking for the lighter green fabric for the front panel of the skirt, the yoke and for lining the arms. I bought some fabric I thought might work, but I wasn't happy with it. And now I'm not happy with it at all! So before using this fabric I'm going to have another look for a more suitable fabric tomorrow.
At least I'm done with the planning and pattern making. And I've cut out several of the dark green pieces. Fingers crossed I'll find some better fabric and can get this show back on the road tomorrow!
16th October 2010: Belt Angelphie, you're a life-saver! I've not got much time to make this cosplay, so your step-by-step journals on how you made the belt really helped me! Thanks a bunch! :D
I've about half-done with the belt pieces. Dress sewing will commence tomorrow! ^__^

Hi Mtani, look forward to seeing you at the show. I will confess to choosing characters I have some physical resemblance to, lazyness or just being realistic?
I think you are going to be stunning as Eowyn.

Epic Faramir & Eowyn shots will ensue hehe :)
Angelphie - 16th October 2010
Your belt’s looking great! I’m so glad my journal ramblings were useful ^_^ Can’t wait to see this finished at Expo!
Mtani - 17th October 2010
Toshi-chan: Haha, I just hope I can get this dress right! XD So far the local fabric shops haven't had what I needed. Trying again tomorrow!
I really can't wait for the Epic Faramir & Eowyn shoot! Going to be fuuuuuun! :D
Angelphie: Thanks! I'll be happy if they end up anywhere near as good as yours ^__^

Mtani - 20th October 2010
Aww, thank you! :D
Neeei! Da er jo selv Tromsø bedre stilt enn Trondheim når det gjelder stoffbutikker (de har ennå sin ene lille XD). Men der ser du, du må komme tilbake til Oslo! ;P
Ååe, dårlig gjort! :( Hehe, skal prøve å gjøre opp for Ame. Bare de to dagene jeg har fri fra jobb vil gjøre turen verdt det! XD

Don't worry about lack of completion, the dress looked brill. And the next time you take it out it will be even more so. Pity I only get to see you all in posted photo's.
