Those without swords can still die upon them! by LaLeLina Those without swords can still die upon them! by LaLeLina
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

Wow, das sieht einfach unglaublich aus!*______* Den Preis hast du echt verdient, Glückwunsch! Wie hast du denn das Kettenhemd gemacht? Ich bin ein Cosplay-newbie und will mir für die Ringcon ein Boromir-Kostüm basteln - bin gerade dabei die Fahne aus Osgiliath zu nähen.:)

2nd place? You got second? That's ridiculous.

You deserve first. (then again, I've always been biased in favor of Eowyn)
