To my shame, I only read the books after I saw Fellowship. :P I had tried reading The Hobbit as a kid and couldn't get into it, and didn't bother trying until the movies came out many years later.
I fell in love with Arwen's Blood Red dress right from the earliest promo material (and was driven nuts by the fact that it didn't appear until ROTK); I also love her coronation gown, but pale green is really not my colour; I'd look like a zombie.
I do really want to do a Luthien costume, but don't know when it'll be since I have about a billion other costumes on my to-do list, and very little time.
