I love Arwen to death, and this gown is one of my favorites. However, like the Coronation gown, I cannot take credit for making it myself.
This gorgeous dress was created by Museum Replicas. It is made out of red and midnight blue velvet, with gold embroidery along the neck and sleeves. Like the Coronation gown, it laces up the back, so I need some help getting into it. The sleeves aren't as heavy as the other dress, but the entire thing still weighs several pounds. The wig and necklace I reused my Coronation costume, and the shoes I already had.
Despite its weight it is very comfortable to wear and it has a sweeping sense of elegance to it. Very royal.
