Eowyn by FrockTarts Eowyn by FrockTarts
My Eowyn green gown, made to pair with my sisters Grima. All in all, I'm happy with how this came out, considering how much trouble I had with it. First, I managed to get a pattern that was later found to have HUGE design flaws, which took me forever to fix, (And I have to send thank to the ladies a the Allycat LOTRs costume web site for helping me there! Girls, you rock!) Then I had a hell of a time find a lining that I like for the dress.... I couldn't find *anything* that match what was in the movie. And last, never having sewn with silk velvet before, I was slipping and sliding all over the place! But I still love this dress, and I think I captured the look well.

Eowyn was always my favorite female in the LOTR series. I loved her in the movies and in the books and I love this dress! Velvet is ridiculously slippery and a huge pain to work with, but it looks like you did a great job. I think my absolute favorite part is the trim on the collars of the neck and chest/shoulder. :)

I've wanted to do that one forever.. (it just keeps getting pushed back on my list) That and the lovely blue one she wears. Maybe now that I'm growing my hair back, I'll get around to it. ;) Can't wait to see what you do with it.. and be sure to submit it to *CostumeDesignCentral! ;)

Yes. Alleycat scratch has been a godsend. I so hope I find someone soon who will cosplay Grima/Eowyn with me.

:iconfrocktarts:
FrockTarts Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2007  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It has! Seems like it would be easier to find some one to do Eowyn, as sadly Grima isn't to popular a character... Were are you at in the world? You might be able to ask over at the Alley cat yahoo Lord of the rings group if any one would be willing to do a pairing with you...

Southern US. And it's not just that I want to do the pairing costume, it'd be nice if the girl actually fancied me enough to pose for Grima/Eowyn fluff pics etc.

I'm in the far northwest corner of Arkansas. :P
Ah, I see.:nod: .. Yeah, that can be a bit harded.
Funny, that make me think of a pic I wated to do... I wanted to make Eowyns blue sleeping gown and take a pic of me curled up, looking like I had just fallen asleep, with Grimas velvet over robe/cloak thing covering her... You know, like Grima was creeping around and saw she wasn't warm enough and covered her up.. Simultaneously sweet and creepy. :D I need to do that, but of course I'd either have to grow my hair long again, or get a wig.

lol, I plan on doing it... One day. :( After I knock back a few of me other projects that I've got piled up.. (I bad a starting stuff, and then not finishing it for a long time!)

Hey, on a side note, it's not directly Grima related, but have you ever checked out the Brad Dourif forum [link] ? Might wanna check it out, they have about the only other Grima costumers there, plus some fan fic and art. If you do sigh up, just say The Mime sent ye (that's my screen name there)..
