A bit picture heavy... Sorry >.<
This autumn I will be going to a larp as the elfish "dreamer". She has the ability to predict the future and mainly stays put in one place all the time which means that for ones I get to play a classical elf-in-the-wood who doesn't have to have 100% practical clothes to be able to get around without getting caught in everything in the forest. Sooo-I present to you my first classical full-length elvish costume ^^ Jay.
As always I can point out sooo many things I am not pleased with, but I shall try to focus on the whole and say that I like it.
So, here she is.
I really like the absurd length of the sleeves, even though weaving the hem on them took forever.
Close up on the details. I card weaved them both in the same pattern but in different colours)
The dress is only closed halfway down, so it opens up on an underskirt with some light embroidery in the lower front.

I wanted the costume to fit all kinds of weathers, so in case of colder days I also have additional sleeves/half gloves knitted in wool
And for the cold nights I of course have a cloak
For warmer days the entire sleeves of the dress can come of
aaaand sleeveless from the back.
what do you think? I could sort of pull it off, right?
