It's been a while since I've had a costume post. I think this frock is very appropriate for this time of year - especially when paralleled with the above quote describing Eowyn herself.

This costume is simply lovely, with a touch of delicate embroidery detail. It's refined and regal, without ostentation, which suits Eowyn perfectly. The gown reminds me of the golden glow the sun has in early spring. So charming.

It's so gorgeous! You'd never know the dress's material was so detailed just from the movie! It's amazing how much wasn't/couldn't be shown in the trilogy. But you're right, the costumes were unbelieveable.

By the by, I've bookmarked your blog. I took a breeze through the other entries and I love it.

Oh, wow, that's awesomely increadible! .... WOW! *is looking for inspiration for a costume party*
I would go nuts if i had a spare grand or so, :P.
It's amazing how much detail went in to that movie which was never actually seen. I wish they were all in one place - ok, not so much. I might die. Slowly. But with joy.
