    Due to the upcoming LOTR marathons that will be going on I was thinking of making a nice easy female Elf costume for the event. I already have the cloak-my crushed black velvet that I amde for my sith costume.

    Anyways, i looked and looked and couldn't find the threads from before-most likely jsut looking over them each time I went past them. So I know there are some that have made them before.

    But any recommendations or suggestions?

    Need something quick and easy-due to time constrants and I am a pretty bad sew-er.

    Check out Alley Cat Scratch, the Lord of the Rings Costuming Research Guide. The link is here:

    [link=http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/]http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/[/link]

    They even have a quick and easy costumes section located [link=http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/QuickC.htm]here[/link]. The board was compiled by the efforts of the people studying the costumes and posting to the email list, the link to them is [link=http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LOTR_Costume/]here[/link] if you can't find what you're looking for on the website.

    The Dewback Wing ASAP board has a whole LotR section on it, you may want to see if there are any threads over there that may help you.

    Varza, the ACS-LOTR site should have what you need. :) Under [link=http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/Scrapbook.htm]Scrapbook[/link], you can also see what some had did with their existing dress/gowns which they convert into Elven or even Rohirrim Female Costume with a bit more cloth or trimmings. ;)

    Still in doubt or got an idea but need help in making it a reality? Then lead over to the [link=http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LOTR_Costume/]Mailing List[/link] to ask for some advices (but sure to point out that you have already check out ACS-LOTR or else many will just point you to that direction).


    Hmm, The-Matt-Man, I think as long as one have a Global(?) Ezboard Account, one can check out and post at any Ezboard Forums. The only exception is if the owner set it to "Very Restricted" Membership, which I haven't come across in all the Ezboard Forums I had visited (came across it once under another type of Forum Provider). Anyhow, A.S.A.P. isn't the place to ask about LOTR Costumes. :( The last time I post about my LOTR Costume there, I got useless critics instead of advices. :(
