The dreadlocks, tunic, and belt were created and designed by me.
The armor was designed by me. The upper portion (minus the tassets) was made with the assistance of Lance "Fitz" Butler. (This was my first leather project!) The tassets and greaves were created completely by me.
The copper sword was created by Fitz. Finishing the foam, plastidiping, and painting were completed by me. The other sword was purchased from Calimacil (and is used for pictures only. The foam is too stiff and not safe for combat.)
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
Piedmont "miles" of the first half of the eleventh century. He wears a variety of weapons depicted in miniatures and sculptures of Germanic area between the IX and X century. The German influence seems plausible, as that Piedmont was part of the Holy Roman Empire, and that many times the emperors went down to Italy with their troops to follow. He wears a chain mail hauberk with short sleeves, a spangenhelm, and a padded coat, whose existence is only supposed in the XI century. Carries a round shield with central grip, and a sword with the typical "Brazilian Walnut" pommel. An integral part of the arsenal, although not depicted here, was also the spear.
Miles piemontese della prima metà dell'XI secolo. Indossa un armamento raffigurato in molteplici miniature e sculture di area germanica tra il IX e il X secolo. L'influenza tedesca appare verosimile, dato che il Piemonte era parte del Sacro Romano Impero, e che più volte gli Imperatori scesero in Italia con al seguito le loro truppe. Indossa un usbergo in maglia di ferro a maniche corte, un elmo a spicchi (spangenhelm) e una giubba imbottita, la cui esistenza nell'XI secolo è solo supposta. Porta uno scudo rotondo ad impugnatura centrale e una spada con il tipico pomo a "noce brasiliana". Parte integrante dell'armamentario, anche se qui non è raffigurata, era anche la lancia.
The band Gotland ([link]) used it for the cover of their "Behind the Horizon" EP.
Rangergear as it is to be used during this spring. Not the best of gears, better hoses will hopefully be made in time to be used. Will add chainmaille, another tabard and gloves later, but right now I just need something to stroll around in during the daytime.
