Elistriell Watersong - Costume by Adella Elistriell Watersong - Costume by Adella
Elistriell Watersong was my originally created Telerin elf from Lord of the Rings. Dwelling in Mithlond and eventually traveling out of the Grey Havens to seek whatever it was we RPed about... (Heh) ... I decided I wanted to create her costume as a sort of jerkin. I really did enjoy the designs that Peter Jackson gave to his elves, and so when designing my own costume I went with a Peter Jackson sort of flare. Most of the time when it comes to roleplay I draw my characters, but since Lord of the Rings RP is a more "real people" style of RP and not manga influenced in nature... I wanted to use a real person, me, hah!. Hence here is Elistriell! I designed the costume, sewed it myself, and then modeled it.

THE EARS ARE NOT REAL THEY ARE CG DUE TO MY LAZINESS AND LACK OF SKILLZ AT INJECTION MOLDS!

Also... I do plan on putting some embroidery on the sleeves and collar, any input and suggestions on specific designs are very welcome! I'm horrid at designing embroidery patterns... by this I don't mean tell me I need embroidery on the costume... I mean if you have a suggestion... maybe like sketch something up because when I say I suck I mean that!

For more images of this costume please see: [link] Thanks!

I like how you've made everything yourself and used yourself as a model for your character, not everyone has the confidence to do that. I like the look of your outfit, as you've said, with some adjustments to embroidery and a little more detail, I'm sure that it'll look really good once it's finished :)
I would actually be interested to hear more of a profile/background info on your RP character as well, just so it feels like I'm getting to know your character. Great job though!

Thank you so much! That's a great comment :D! I miss playing her. When people would ask me where I got the photos I'd just say it was some girl online so that people didn't know that it was actually me. HAHA.

Nice garb! As for the embroidery, I'd say go for a simple leaf or vine design, but keep it simple and don't over do it. Just a little here or there (sleeves and maybe botton seam and collar). You can even look up some calligraphy designs. For the colour of the embroidery, probably a dark gold like your trousers.
And if you want to commision any leather work, feel free to send me a message. I do quite a bit and whatever I can't do I know a ton of other people who can. :)

Im torn.
My boring, somewhat grownup side is saying that this is silly and nerdy.
But the rest of is just hitting my boring side with a mallet, telling it to shut up and see how wellmade and down right sexy this is
