Yay, Merry! This is fantastic! The cape is so nice and shiny! And SO BLUE. (sorry. i like blue. i like shiny.)
Your accessories are pretty rad, too--the pipe is a fabulous shape. I seriously dig the beat up ruckstack, as well.
And, just, SQUEE--you are actually wearing a vest. Faboo!
Did you just buy the cloak-claspy-pin thing somewhere, then?
. I pretty much fell in love with the fabric when I saw it (it's not that blue in real life though, it's a lot greyer).
hehe, yeah the vest gave me a lot of problems. I didn't take my boobs into account when I made my ghetto pattern, so in order to button it, I have to wear a sportsbra and hold my breath.
My Mom bought the pin for me 2 years ago, I think she got it off of the official website (yay Mom!)
I love the liquor bottle.. looks deadly cool. I'd probably bring it to class as a water bottle,
I only have cranberry juice in my bottle right now, because I'm going to be wearing my costume to school, and I don't think my professors or the campus police would approve of me getting plastered during lecture
I love it. The details are fantastic. I think you are a very convincing Merry.
Love the action picture with the pipe. Someday I would love to try my hand at an Eowyn inspired dress. But in the mean time I need to brush up on my sewing before I taken on such an adventure.
Anyway, yay for LOTR costumes!
Great idea; I love pretty much everything worn by Eowyn!
