I'm soooo in love with the epic masterpiece of Tolkien and I love the films of Peter Jackson and that he has brought the lovable characters so impressively to life. I love Richard Taylor and Weta for their detail-oriented costumes and film settings and weapons!!! So it was one of my biggest wishes, to make sometimes a cosplay of a character from Lord of the Rings!!! And my dreams come true!!!!!!! *___*
For a competition at the Bookfair in Frankfurt, which was held for the guest of honor "New Zealand", I created this costume. Richard Taylor was there!!!
Eowyn is a wonderful character. She's powerful and gentle at the same time and radiates a wonderful dignity, so I decided to present her on this event. I was so proud that I've made this costume and I won the 2nd price! I have a VIP-Ticket for the europe premiere in London. I'm soooo excited!! >////<
Those, who are familiar with LARP, probably are grinning about my costume, because in terms of building armour and weapons, I'm a completely novice. But to me it was important to craft everything in this costume by myself and I won't buy any finished Replicas. (Okay, the flag is bought, 'cause lack of time, but the sword and shield and helmet and all the rest was selfmade <3)
So please do not judging me too hard. Of course there are far better versions of this cosplay in terms of fabrics and materials and craft skills, but I am really really proud for what I've done!!!
Oh and by the way, my wig is much longer, but the most of it is hidden under the cape, to stay undetected.
I really hope, you like it! My lovely Sebastian took this picture. He is a newby in photography, but I think, he did a great job. Thank you very much!!! xoxo
