Well, when you look at it <i>that</i> way... I've probably put about as many on this thing myself, considering it's been in the works (at least planning) since January. I'm working on it as I speak... really, I'm doing a couple stitches on the trim, post something, sew a bit more, read a fanfic... <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0>

No, sorry, we cannot special order Halloween fabrics. Oh, ok, then I'll just come back when you get more in. We aren't getting any more in, sorry. Grrrrr. So I had to go to Hancocks and get it without the discount...which annoyed me, but it wasn't <i>that</i> much more, so.... Now I just need a lining... Hmmmmmm...<BR><BR>~Sil

For All Hallows Eve I will be wondering my street dressed in my usual Hollween stuff (not that usual only did it for one Holloween so far) <BR>From foot to head: Black boots, Black pants, black shirt/tunic, Black cloak, black seperate hood, and my walnut stained staff. <BR>Yep I walk around in the dark wearing all black, and it always seems to be two cars that drive on my road. I think I'll stop by a cemetery and stand in one spot to see if anyone sees me. <BR>(no I'm not insane just a little crazy)<BR><BR>~ Storm Crow The Green <BR>~ I return to you at the turn of the tide<BR>~ Holder of the Earth Ring of Persuasion<BR>~ Ent Caller (long live the Ents)<BR>~ Wood Carver of the Wood Crafter guild

That sounds like something I would think about doing, but not have the nerve to do. I thought about putting on my cloak some morning, going into the park, standing by the fence, and watching the bus go by, just to see if anyone on it noticed me. Bwaha.<BR><BR>I cut my cloak out! It's HUGE! It's gonna be sooo much fun to wear. I'd like to line it, but haven't bought any lining yet...<BR><BR>~Sil

My cloak's cut out too! I'm really excited about having one. I've always wanted one...<BR>I would love to do that sometime... walk around wearing a cloak or my pointy ears and see how many weird looks I can get. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Stormcrow -- I don't want to seem like a horrible person (I'm not, really <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0>) but there's a new rule that you can only have three lines at the end of your post as a signature unless you are a PM.

Stormcrow -- why don't you just make it shorter?

My Eowyn costume is finally DONE!!!!!<BR><BR>Well, almost. I still have to braid one of the cords to tie the sleeve into place when I'm wearing it. But I finally finished the five miles of hems I had to sew tonight, and the vest last night. So as far as I'm concerned, it's done. So I can still enter the contest after all!!<BR>I'll try to somehow get a link to some pics once I get some. Anyone know a place to do photos that actually works (since Yahoo doesn't for me? Or how to get it to work?)<BR>

Oh good, the link worked! I was just coming back to edit and say I'm really not that depressed looking... I was just trying to be "in character" (meaning look serious) which for me means I look really sad and/or angry looking. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>Anyway, the elf dress was based on a Simplicity pattern (can't remember the #, but the pic is light blue with a drape and has another view that looks a lot like Arwen's riding dress). The drape didn't work, so I took that off, and I altered the shape of the sleeves and added the silvery front panel myself. You can't really see it, but there's silver swirlys painted on the front panel and the top of the sleeves to give it a bit more of an under/overdress look. <BR>I sort of designed the Eowyn one myself, it was a pattern I enlarged from a book of historical theatrical patterns (combined and changed a couple things.) It was a huge pain, and I'm still not completely happy with how it fits- I had to do a lot of sewing together/taking apart/sewing together again. But overall I think it turned out pretty well. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Oh, I made a dress from that pattern! I made it entirely out of red satin... the drape is very... interesting <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR><BR>I know what you mean about being serious; in a couple of the pictures Sil and Nen and I took last time we all tried to look like Elves departing for the Havens -- that is, depressed... I think it worked...

Those costumes are awesome, shieldmaiden!

Heehee, I am such a dork! We had an Band Competition and my friend, sister and I wore our cloaks that day. Needless to say, we got a bunch of weird looks. But it was a ton of fun! And I am so proud of how pretty my cloak looks! Once I get some pictures of it I will put it on here so you can see. I get to wear it again Tuesday, and Friday of this week! Yay!
