Galadriel Commission by Durnesque Galadriel Commission by Durnesque
My friend ~avi17 is going to DragonCon next week. She commissioned this dress so she can go as Galadriel from "The Lord of the Rings."

I used Simplicity pattern 9891 as a base, but improvised on the sleeves, hem, and belt. I made the sleeves longer and created a trailing hem. I also tacked the collar down into a better shape.

The fabric on the dress has a slight crinkle to it and both the dress and sleeve fabrics have a slight shimmer. The belt is white ribbon with a silver leaf and scroll design.

Oh, that's gorgeous. It would make one hell of a wedding dress.

Hey there, unfortunately, I don't know much about international shipping and I'm booked almost through the end of the year... But thank you so much for the interest!

Sorry. :/

I think I noted in the comments which pattern I used as a base though, if that helps.

This is absolutely gorgeous!
You are so talented!
I'm still attempting to figure out my options for Galadriel. If you don't mind me asking, how much did this all cost? (I'm weighing my options for this cosplay)

Thank you so much! All together it was about $80, but that was with discounts.

You are really talented. Do you sell such dresses to others as well?

I certainly could if someone was interested in commissioning. Usually I just make things for friends or local theater productions.

*wishful* If I ever get to the USA again I might be tempted to.
How much do you work on any of the dresses? The other ones are wonderfl, too!

Do you mean the other costumes and such I have in my gallery? Depending on the project I work on sewing things couple of days to a week at most. Some of the quicker alterations get finished in a day.

Love it! :D It came out gorgeous, and that belt is so perfect! (so much better than the giant gold one XD) I got a slip-type thing to go under it, so hopefully that'll take care of the see-thru-ness (and the lining on the neckline will show less). Thank youuu! I can't wait to try it on Wednesday! :glomp:

I'll have everything since I'll be on my way home, but I may not put it all on (still waiting for one thing in the mail though...was supposed to be here last week D: ). There will be photos though. :D
