Costume Tournament - Arwen Round One  
Just for something different, I'm going to run a costume tournament.

Each round will consist of two of Arwen's costumes going against one another. All you have to do is vote OUT one. That's voting OUT your LEAST favourite.

The images against each other will be chosen randomly. Each round is going to last only about 48 hours.

After Arwen's costumes are finished, we're going to start on Eowyn.

YAY! Random poll-like fun.

The Farewell Gown
As seen in the Extended Edition of Fellowship of the Ring; and in a flashback during The Two Towers.

The Dream Gown
As seen in the flashback dream sequence in The Two Towers.

Remember you are voting out your LEAST favourite. Do NOT vote for your favourite - vote OUT your least favourite!!!

i love the ornate seriousness of the farewell gown.

Yes, I'm quite partial to that one, too.

You've actually voted your the farewell gown out, is that what you meant to do?
girl talk22by7 on March 12th, 2007 06:50 am (UTC)
... no, i didn't. my brain sucks at noon, apparently!
Lauren: Boba Fetteowyn on March 12th, 2007 07:00 am (UTC)
That's okay. I'll remember where your vote was meant to go. :)

I hope my instructions are clear enough..

lol I voted wrong at first too - at least that's changeable. ;)
Anyway, while the dream gown is quite nice (and not at all 'see-through' as many so indignantly like to point out) I adore the farewell gown - especially in that light there, when it's more brownish-peachy than pink.

lol, that's okay. :)

I'm definately a farewell gown over the dream. To me, the dream gown seems out of place. It's pretty, but it's not very Elvish compared to the other costumes. Farewell is beautiful - esp in those autumn-y colours, like you said.

this is a cool idea,dear :)
Lauren: Eowyn Anyatheeowyn on March 12th, 2007 01:00 pm (UTC)
Something different! ;D

I like it :)
aww-wonderful icon!!!

Fantastic idea! (though it makes more sense to vote for your favourite, rather than the other way round :P)

I think both dresses are pretty, but I love the farewell dress more. Though I do prefer the way it looks in the picture above, it's got such beautiful warm colours. Rather than the purple of the extended cut.
Lauren: Booeowyn on March 12th, 2007 01:02 pm (UTC)
It probably does, in hindsight. However, I wanted it to be a process of elimination, and this seemed best at the time. :)

The Farewell gown is beautiful. I love it both ways - especially with the bronze hues.
Abigaellast_chael on March 12th, 2007 01:09 pm (UTC)
Hehehe yeah, well that makes sense too! So long as people read it (and youhave pointed it out several times :P)

I love the bronze! It's so pretty!

we don't have to give reasons? the one I didn't vote for is prettier :p
Lauren: Aragorneowyn on March 12th, 2007 01:03 pm (UTC)
LOL! You can always give reasons in comments! :D

I like the dream gown better. Arwen is ony of my LOTR fave characters! :)
