So! Today officially starts day one of my Halloween costume month extravaganza. I foresee a lot of elves in my future, but I like Eowyn and couldn’t help but start with something she might wear. The dress isn’t intended to represent any specific costume from the movie – as much as I like the movie costumes, I won’t just be reproducing them all week because that would be boring – but it is vaguely based on this white gown that I loved.

I will try to re-read as much as I can of the Lord of the Rings trilogy this week, but keep in mind I’m not a LOTR geek in the same way that I am, say, a Final Fantasy geek. My mom tried to get me to read The Hobbit when I was younger, and it didn’t hold my interest until I was older for some reason. Although I have read the LOTR trilogy too, of course, it really has been quite some time. So if I draw an elf dress in some specific shade of purple that the Silmarillion says is reserved for mourning a nephew or something please do forgive me.

Here’s the poll for week 2 of Halloween costume possibilities. I dropped the bottom three results from last week, added the suggestions from yesterday’s post and added one of my own… Please vote!

  1. I was expecting the Watcher in the Water or one of the drowned people from that mere on the way to the crack of doom.

    Tolkein doesn’t really lend himself to mermaids does he?

  2. For me the dress of the Watcher in the Water would be certainly too creepy. I remember that when I read that part of the book last winter and then had to go to the swimming lesson I was feeling quite horrible. But I would suggest something Tom Bombadil’s wife Goldberry would wear. She was a river woman’s daughter.

  3. Oh, if you have any suggestions I’d love to hear them! :)

    I think Goldberry is coming up soon in my reading, so I bet she will get a paperdoll day…

  4. I love your website!But can you make more dolls?Can you make cloths from the movie ”the sound of music”?I’m turning 8. I am in second grade.
