I actually bought the making of the fellowship
concept art book.. that had all the conceptial art.. and even
the costume designs.. I didn't see the red dress,
but I think when they release the two towers
concept book, it will include all the pictures and
details.

If the movie is not even in the theaters here, so you can't even hope for a bad divx version to stare at...

Is that outfit featured in the trailers? If so you could try and download it on WInMX or some other file-sharing program and screencap it...

That looks like a lovely dress. *________*

I know I've seen some good pictures of it somewhere.. but I'm not sure where. You could try doing an image search on google? I think I was doing that when I found the pictures. ::Nods.:: And.. somewher else.. it might be on the FotR DVD extra's but I've tried to get screencaps to no avail. My program sucks or they've made it so you can't..

Good luck. I hope you post pictures when its done! ^_^

Eep.. I doubt they'd cut it once they have it in the trailors.. o.o But I hope they don't cut it either.

BTW, I love your Nei costume! ::Was at your site.:: ^_^

I'm not sure if they have any information up about that dress, but you could try checking this page:
http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/

If there's nothing up about that dress, you could also try asking their mailing list. I'm a member of it, and they're *really* helpful about costumes.

Hi! I'm new here too! ^_^

I'm gonna do the same gown too for the Dec 18+ Premiere and so far I came up with this idea while still keeping the cost down (it was an unplanned costume! :-P )

The original costume, as mentioned at AlleyCatScratch, is made of Velvet (Crimson Red/Scarlet & Black/Dark Bulgary), Laces and maybe some embroyies. It kinda follow the design of a Jumper for the body part and the usual Long Sleeves.

What I'm doing instead is to make the Gown out of Black Velvet for the "Jumper" part, Crimson/Scarlet Silky Satin for the "Blouse" and Sleeves, Rose Red Acetate Lining for the Sleeves Lining and Dull Gold/Brownish Lace for on top of the Blouse and on top of the upper sleeves. So far, I had calculated that it'll cost way less than SGD100 (USD54 for the fabrics) since I'm buying from the usual Arab/Indian/Chinese Cloths Shop here instead of Spotlight, the equivalent of Joann's.

I'll also appreciate some tips on it, especially the pattern for the sleeves. Thanks! ^_^
