On the left are a gathering
of the real Celeborn materials
And on the right are the materials I chose.
|The real outerobe||It looked like a greenish
gray in the movie with a small floral pattern.
I don't know what it was made out of, but I'm guessing heavy silk.
|My version of the outerobe||I selected a heavier upolstry material with a leaf/vine pattern and more of a tan gold hue.|
|The real inner robe||A cream two tone shiney ornate leaf pattern, probably silk.|
|My version of the inner robe||Curtains! It had the right color and was more of a floral. Poly...|
The Neck Piece
On the left, the original, out of pounded silver. On the right, my version in fun foam, mod podge and paint
On the left my
version, odds and ends from Wal-mart that I sewed to gether.
The buckle is jewerly wire and gapoxio.
On the right, the original in pounded metal.
My sleeves are much wider than the original... I may still take them in.
I put in a zipper,
and left out the shoulder deals... I have no clue what they are
I still need to add a hook and eye at the top of the collar.
The Outer Robe
The upolstry does not hang as elegantly as the silk (?) And the sleeve shape was very difficult to duplicate...
Soon to come... elf shoes!
I'll be doing Kev's in the same material as his outerrobe...
When a friend of mine wore the costume, I made a wig for him.
