Arwen Undomiel: River Dress Part 1

I've been dying to make this costume for a long time, and it seemed like Comicon this year was the perfect excuse to make it.

I drafted the pattern by draping on my dress form using an old sheet from Goodwill.

The sleeves have an intricate design on them that, from what I could tell, is either embossed or embroidered. I was not going to hand embroider this on two sleeves and embossing wasn't working well with the fabric I picked. So instead I used fabric paint, which I think tuned out quite well.

I created  her belt from scraps of worbla, which I spray painted silver when finished.

The dress itself came together quite easily, and was ready to wear!
