Vána the Ever-Young


The Silmarillion

Last Updated: 10-04-2014

I have been a huge Lord of the Rings fan since I first saw the movies in early high school. As I never got to see them in theater you can imagine my great surprise and excitement upon learning that the Hobbit would be made and that I would be able to see it in theaters. I decided that I would have to make a gown for myself and seeing as I am quite tall I couldn't possibly pass as a hobbit. So I decided that I would go as a wood elf. Unfortunately there are no female characters in the book to name the gown after so I then decided to name my gown after a Valier so that the gown would be somehow related to not only the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings but also to all the other works Tolkien wrote about Middle Earth. I chose the Valier Vána because she represents the spring and that is my favourite season.

Under Gown - used a pattern and added ties to the sleeves, made with a pale gold fabric of unknown origin.

Over Gown - pattern drafted with the aid of a tutorial and some unique aspects I created, made with green crushed velvet and a brown velvet trim.

Boots - used pre-owned boots.

Cloak - pattern drafted by me, made using an old curtain, material of unknown origin.
