Cosplay Help

A lot of people, when it comes to cosplay, just don’t know where to start, or think that they can’t find exactly what they want/don’t have the skill to create replicas. However, a lot of pattern companies and indie blogs have started creating a lot of very useful patterns and tutorials just for those people.

Today’s post is all the help I could find and/or create for Lord of the Rings Elves (although, they could work for any high fantasy elf). If you think you may be doing one of these cosplays in the future, I’d suggest book marking this page because I will be updating it as I go.

Notes

Fabric

It’s all really about the fabric you use.

Rivendell = Silks in blue and silver

Lothlorien = Fluttery and lightweight (think of a little kid’s fairy costume) in white and blue and silver

Woodelves = Greens, browns, and other ‘natural’ colors in wools and linens with leather. If you’re being a stickler to the books they don’t wear armor (I know they do in the movie, that was just wrong, okay?)

References

One of the great things about making Lord of the Rings costumes is the number of resources because 1) a lot of people have done it already and 2) the costumes travel around a lot, so you can get good, up-close photos of them.

Battle Gear

Mens

  • McCall’s M2052:
    • ‘Viking inspired’ so that gives you an idea of what you’ll be looking at. Its not as ‘fancy’ as most of what we see the elves in, but it could work.

Women’s

  • McCall’s 5923:
    • ‘Viking inspired’ so that gives you an idea of what you’ll be looking at
