Costume Tournament Round 3

The Angel Gown was voted out in favour of the Mourning Gown!!

Now on to Round Three!

Battle Gear

Most people know the story of this deleted sequence. Arwen and Elrond go to Lothlorien and from there she marches to Helm's Deep with Haldir's company and fights there. Good pictures of this costume are hard to find.

Rose Gown

This gown is briefly glimpsed in one or two of the trailers. The apparent premise of its scene was that, when Frodo awakens in Rivendell, goes out to the balcony and looks down, he sees Arwen and Aragorn together below. She is wearing this dress. (Possibly with cape not pictured here.)

but I like them both :)
Lauren: Closereowyn on March 16th, 2007 12:25 pm (UTC)
My dilemma here is I don't really like either!! Red and pink never works and I think the gown is dull, and I disapprove of the battle gear for Tolkienesque reasons..lol.

But I voted out Rose, because at least Battle is interesting. ;)

*hides from Mata* I don't think Liv looks great in pink, but by itself it is quite stunning :)

I think for me I'm just against Arwen being in the battle scene :p we don't have to tell you why we're voting right :p
Lauren: Eowyn Blueseowyn on March 16th, 2007 12:37 pm (UTC)
Careful, Mata will come after you with a rusty spork!! Those darn sporks! ;)

LOL!! No, you don't! But it's fun!
Charmander: charm by mata - scaredypokecharm on March 16th, 2007 12:58 pm (UTC)
*flannel hides* she certainly can't see me here :p and who gave her a spork!

*poke giggles* I am a silly poke :p

I can see your flannel behind! *pokes* :P

*scooches further under covers* pay no attention to the poke under the blanky :p

Lauren: Monsters Inceowyn on March 16th, 2007 01:09 pm (UTC)
She bought it from the Spork Emporium with a gift voucher!!!

Not much siller than I!! :D
Charmander: cute charm for PA's sispokecharm on March 16th, 2007 01:18 pm (UTC)
there's spork emporium? hmm, I might need to get in on that :p

lol we both are pretty silly :p
matapadabee on March 16th, 2007 12:49 pm (UTC)
*wags finger at you two* :P

Anyway, it's hard choice cause I actually like them both - not withstanding the fact that I'd sell my sister to see those scenes! I so don't disapprove of Arwen battle scenes at all, btw :P After all Tolkien himself said that elvish women were able to defend their homes and lives just as any male elf if needed.
Voted the rose out, after all, cause I actually love the battle gown to pieces!
Lauren: Jane Ashereowyn on March 16th, 2007 12:52 pm (UTC)
*Hangs head*

The Battle gown is lovely - especially her hair for it!! - but I still just can't forgive such a deviation from the main story as it intended. That said, I also want to see those scenes -- but will you tell your sister, or shall I? ;)
mata: Liv bunny earspadabee on March 16th, 2007 01:09 pm (UTC)

I'm Liv-biased, so I'm a hopeless case. LOL
*giggles* You can, I'll try to hide somewhere.

We'll get you the best help green stamps can buy, sweetie. ;)

Uh oh, Charm's got that look...

Nup. Only a brief shot of the Rose in the trailers, and screenshots and stuff. :( *Hugs*
Atanone: 3atanone on March 16th, 2007 05:09 pm (UTC)
I voted out red
Laureneowyn on March 17th, 2007 02:31 am (UTC)
Me too.

Haha! This is tough. I love both the costumes. I JUST finished my Rose Gown and hopefully at some point in the near future I'll finally get to make the Battle Dress. I already have the vambraces for it. But I voted out the Rose Gown because, although I love it, the battle outfit is just a nifty idea- even if it's non canon at all!
Lauren: Jane Ashereowyn on March 17th, 2007 02:32 am (UTC)
Oh, wow! I'd love to see pictures of your costumes. :)

Lindz: Smokevelvetbane on March 17th, 2007 02:41 am (UTC)
My journal is specifically meant to be a costume journal- so all of my projects are detailed there. As for pictures of my stuff, here's a link to that: http://s16.photobucket.com/albums/b47/Snawpee/ I don't have pics of my Rose Gown up yet, I just just finished it last night but hopefully sometime soon I can get some up.
Lauren: Labyrintheowyn on March 17th, 2007 08:03 am (UTC)
I went and had a look - they're beautiful, you must be so pleased with them all!!
Abigaellast_chael on March 16th, 2007 10:07 pm (UTC)
Woohoo! mourning gown won! :D Wast here ever any doubt?

Whilst I don't necessarily agree wtih Arwen being at Helm's deep, I would love to see what they shot of her fighting. And I do love the battle dress, what we've seen of it! Look at the embroidery on the sleeves! Beautiful!

The rose gown is pretty, especially with the pretty cape over the top, but it's too girly :P Battle will always win out! And I'm pretty sure it's not red either (I was getting so confused when people said red!). It's a dusky rose pink, which matches the paler pink quite nicely.
Lauren: Eowyn Freeeowyn on March 17th, 2007 02:33 am (UTC)
Not too much!! It led all the way.

Me too. Because it was shot I want to see it, and because I love Liv, but I'm sooo glad it didn't make final cut. The battle dress is just incredible - but I want more detail!!

I really don't like the colour combination on Rose. The fabric is very pretty, but hmm...doesn't work for me!

Hello there! I was searching for people interested in LotR costumes on the main LJ page and it listed you as having updated recently, so I came here and found the costume polls, how fitting, lol. I friended you, hope you don't mind, because you've got some amazing icons down below! Do you actually make costumes, or just admire them?

Anyways, I voted out the Battle outfit because although it's very intricate and cool in its own way, I prefer the plushness and feminine-ness of the Rose Gown.

Oh, anyathe, btw: I *love* all of the Beatles avatars that you've used in your posts.....The Beatles are another major interest of mine. :)
Lauren: George 007eowyn on March 17th, 2007 02:48 am (UTC)
Hi, nice to meet you. :)

I've only made 2 Lotr costumes - one that was terrible and one that was good. They were made with the help of my Mum, because I'm not very thrifty! I wish I were, so I'm really just an admirer.

I voted the other way, lol.

Oh cool! Always great to find another Beatle fan!
Crystal Bagginsboves_amo on March 16th, 2007 11:41 pm (UTC)
Oops! My mistake, I friended lotrcostumes, which you've been updating recently, which led me here. But regardless, your icons are *very* nice. :)
lordofhaladinlordofhaladin on March 17th, 2007 08:33 pm (UTC)
yeah I'm a lurker that just saw this!!!agh I cannot believe I didn't see the last ones! *sigh* anyways. I have a soft spot for the battle, love both the costumes though, but the battle is a interesting dress, really, (and it was my second costume I ever made) soft spot. but definatly a tough decision.. :)
lordofhaladinlordofhaladin on March 17th, 2007 08:36 pm (UTC)
gah!! I voted wrong!!! *cries* I didn't read that we were voting OUT the LEAST fave!!! *sigh* oh well... I ike them both.. but the rose is my least fave.....
Lauren: Be Fabeowyn on March 18th, 2007 05:37 am (UTC)
That's okay, I'll remember where your vote is meant to go when I tally in a few minutes! :)
lordofhaladinlordofhaladin on March 18th, 2007 02:37 pm (UTC)
okay thanks! next time I'l read EVERYTHING next time! ;p
Lauren: Dr.Coxeowyn on March 18th, 2007 05:38 am (UTC)
You made the battle dress? That's pretty cool and a huge job, considering how few reference pics there are for it! Go you! :)
lordofhaladinlordofhaladin on March 18th, 2007 02:36 pm (UTC)
yes I did. :) thanks! :D
