Celebrian by ElbenherzArt Celebrian by ElbenherzArt
Me as Celebrian (Lord of the Rings)

Celebrian is the wife of Lord Elrond and daughter of Galadriel and Celeborn. She doesn't appear in the movies or the lotr books, but in the unfinished tales. (I hope that's the english name for this book. In german it's called 'Die Nachrichten aus Mittelerde'.)
Her dress is my own creation. I tried to mix the bright colors of lothlorien with the dark of the rivendell elves.

I hope you like it. =)

Very beautiful! 
I love it when artists portray the characters that are not so well known.

Thank you. :)

Yes, it's rare that people cosplaying others than die characters known in the movies but I plan to do more cosplays based on the books since there are simply too much characters I love. xD

Was going to hit favorites and realized I already have! This dress is amazing! This is the kind of thing I would make if I was so inclined with a sewing machine. :-/ Brilliantly done! Bravo!

Der Stoff ist ne Seidenart, aber ich weiß nicht mehr wie man ihn nennt. Es sind silberne Fasern drin verwoben, um dem Stoff eine Struktur zu geben. War leider auch sehr teuer.

Interesting subject for a cosplay and very good realization of the costume, both conceptually (I also like the inspiration from Lorien and Rivendell you describe in the comment) and technically.

This is so lovely. You are a very talented seamstress.

It's great to see someone doing Celebrain. Tolkien created so many characters, yet people put from just a small amount of them (mostly ones from the movies), it very cool to see other characters being brought in.

So beautiful! Your creation is extremely DIVINE! What's it like wearing a fantasy-based gown? I wish I wore a real Elvish gown!

Thank you. =) It's a bit uncomfortable to wear this dress, because it's very thight with the sash and the long wig makes trouble. But everyone stares at you when you walk through the city. That's funny. XD Not that I like much attention, but the people see you as a beautiful elvish creature and I want to give them other things to see except their ugly cities and modern clothes. I wear a lot of fantasy related clothes in my freetime and the people give me a lot of positive feedback to keep it up. =)

If you want to wear a elvish dress it's very easy to make one. You just have to find the right pattern and good fabric, that looks elegant.

I understand now how that feels. I just never worn any fantasy clothing in my life. I draw fantasy or medieval gowns. People say I should be fashion or costume designer. But I don't know how to sew.

Still, I think you're lucky to wear outfits, such as this! You've done such a beautiful job!

By the way thanks for the advice on how to make an elvish dress.

Buy a sewing machine and just start. It's not so hard as it looks. You can find a lot of tutorials for sewing in the internet. =)

why rivendell elves use dark colors?

Tolkien wrote that in one of his books. But I don't know which one.

Lothlorien elves with bright colors. But there were more elfes but they already had left middle earth till the third age.

are there "returning elves" after the third age?

The books ends there. Tolkien never wrote something about that, but I think no. They left middle earth and let the race of men rule it, what they still do/does. ;)
