The Lord of the Rings

Last Updated: 10-30-2013

The ‘Dùnedain Germany’ is a German costuming group which portrays the Ithilien rangers of Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. A dear friend of mine made the leather jerkin, gorget, detachable sleeves and the quiver for me – thank you, Móka!

Shirt, long vest and tabard:
The ready-made shirt is made of an olive green cotton fabric. It has long sleeves, a low stand-up collar. It closes in front with small buttons which I replaced with pairs of corded straps. The long vest is calf-length and made of a brown cotton denim-like fabric. It has a V-shaped waist seam and closes in front with 5 pairs of laces. The tabard is made of dark brown broadcloth wool. The tabard is slightly longer than knee-length. It’s open at the sides and has a V-shaped neckline and hem. The edges of the tabard are decorated with stripes of brown suede. It’s laced at the sides with 10 pairs of eyelets.

Leather jerkin, gorget, detachable sleeves:
The medium brown leather jerkin has dark olive green cotton inlets at the sides. There’re 5 pairs of brass rings and a dark brown leather cord to lace the jerkin at each side. The jerkin closes in front with the help of a leather cord which runs through a lot of eylets. There’s a gorget in brown fixed on top of the jerkin. It’s fixed in position by the front lacing of the jerking. The detachable sleeves are made of brown leather and are closed with a lacing.

Cloak, pants and boots:
The brown three quarter length cloak is a ready-made. I modified the closure by adding two brass clasp and a thick leather strap. I wear olive green pants and brown leather boots with the costume.

Mask, belts and belt pouches:
The shape of the mask is nearly triangular and is made of some left over fabric from the long vest. I wear two leather belts, some pouches and a sword with the costume.

Vambrace and quiver:
The leather vambraces are made of embossed leather. The design is inspired by Aragorn’s resp. Faramir’s vambraces. The quiver is made of leather with decorative leather stripes sewed on. There’s a blue fabric bag inside the quiver. The strap is made of the same leather and closes with a belt buckle.

Sword, bow and arrows:
I wear a medieval sword replica in a brown leather scaffold at a separate belt with the costume. The dark brown bow is made of rattan. The arrows are made out of wooden slabs, leather and pine and goose feathers.
