Greetings from SF Zine Fest!  I’ll be here until 4pm today <3  Hope to see you!

Costume For The Day:

- Denim, princess seam maxi dress (snaps all the way up)

- Shell/bead multi-strand necklace.  I LOVE this necklace but it is heavy as sh*t

- Fabric, gladiator, zip-up, black flats

- Various silver bracelets, including one that has a ring attached by a chain

- Turquoise / black enamel square studs

* I also felt it was important to note I wore my hair in a top-knot ^_^


So, I made a movie-Arwen dress in the fall, and I am going to use it for the Rivendell bingo square, because it doesn’t fit anywhere else! 

I used a pattern from Simplicity that has Arwen’s blood-red dress, and Eowyn’s brown and green dresses. They call it something fantasy-related, but it is obvious. I altered the pattern around the neckline and the upper sleeves, just to match the movie dress a little better. It took me a really long time to make. The sleeves were very complicated with the beading, and I did a decent amount of hand-stitching. The deep red color didn’t photograph very well, but it is a stretchy velvet texture. If I had to do it again, I would make the neckline lower and the sleeves longer.

I love the way that Arwen is described in “Many Meetings”, it is so different than the way that Goldberry is mentioned. They are both beautiful, but Arwen’s wisdom and grace are added to her description. I think she embodies Rivendell’s culture of beauty, peace, age, and wisdom.

cathedral veil with rhinestone floral beading by melindarosedesign

i didn’t think i was a veil person until i found my wedding dress … once i put that veil on, it felt right. if i was to do it again, i may choose an even longer veil with a boho vibe, like this one — LOVE the subtly beaded flowers and the long, ethereal look.

Teamed up with some friends for a photoshoot down at Festningen in Oslo.

The dress is inspired by Smaug from the Hobbit, sewn in silk dupion and organza, richly embellished with dragonscale smocking, beads, pearls and lockstitch embroidery. I’ve blogged about it here:: [English] [Norwegian]

(Also, do notice that I let my makeup artist best friend put glitter flakes in my hair. That’s how much I love my best friend.)
