Costume Tournament Round 4

...pretty dodgey banner, eh!! Regardless, the battle dress beat out the rose gown.

Now on to Round 4!!

Getting harder now to choose... Remember you're voting out your least favourite..so don't vote for your favourite!!

Requiem Gown
This is, of course, seen in ROTK. Arwen is first seen wearing it under a cloak leaving Rivendell for Mithlond. On her return she strips the cloak off as she runs towards her father, revealing the beauty of the gown for the first time. The gown also appears on the movie poster, but has been shopped to a different shade.

Blood-Red Gown
Arguably the most famous from the movie, as it was used in many promotional shots. This gown is in ROTK, and appears directly after we see the Requiem Gown. It is also the gown that she wears when Aragorn sees her in his dream.

Definately a difficult choice, they are both beautiful! But definately the blood red :D I remember when I saw the first glimpses of it, I fell in love with it! I'd almost consider making it!!
Lauren: Gandalfeowyn on March 18th, 2007 07:14 am (UTC)
Is it ever!!

This was the hardest for me so far...I really had to wrench a decision out of myself!

But in the end I chose Requiem, probably only because I prefer blue to red!!
not telling!: Padme brillianceyorda_ on March 18th, 2007 07:19 am (UTC)
May I just say that this is wonderful! I can't wait for the Eowyn one :) Thanks for doing this! You know what would also be great? One with Padme's dresses!
Lauren: Heroeowyn on March 18th, 2007 09:08 am (UTC)
I'm glad you're enjoying it!!

I am thinking of doing Padme's costumes after Eowyn's.....!

Uh, that was EVIL! I flipped a coin. lol
Lauren: Faramireowyn on March 18th, 2007 08:59 am (UTC)
I know! How hard was it!

I chose requiem eventually - only because I prefer blue to red!
Atanone: 12atanone on March 18th, 2007 09:51 am (UTC)
with my heart heavy I voted out red..blue is blue and-everybody knows I'm partial about blue,lol:)
Lauren: Eowyn Swordeowyn on March 18th, 2007 11:38 am (UTC)
Sounds just like me!! I voted the same as you. :)
Atanone: 5atanone on March 18th, 2007 11:58 am (UTC)
hehe...I'm curious about Eowyn dresses..:)
Lauren: Eowyn Defendeowyn on March 18th, 2007 12:37 pm (UTC)
Now that will be interesting!
Atanone: 10atanone on March 18th, 2007 01:07 pm (UTC)
very elegant*sighs*
Mlle de Fer: Mlledefer Padme mlledefer on March 18th, 2007 10:25 am (UTC)
Difficult choice!:) But I'll continue to say that I do not like red color very much:)Even if both are veeery beautiful:):)
Lauren: Closereowyn on March 18th, 2007 11:38 am (UTC)
I was really angsting over my choice for this one, but chose blue!
Savage Angel: obi_geeksavagexangel on March 18th, 2007 01:27 pm (UTC)
Ahhhhh... I'll end up having a real big problem when we have to do the assignment on party/formal gowns.. I want to make all of Arwen's dresses! =o hehe.. Sooo beautiful!
Lauren: George 007eowyn on March 18th, 2007 01:53 pm (UTC)
Which do you reckon you'll do first?
Daughter of Eve: Marian smileprincess_narnia on March 18th, 2007 02:52 pm (UTC)
Yay another cool poll. :D I voted the red dress out. As much as I love those deep jewel colours... I found the scene with her walking away from Rivendale to be so haunting and this blue dress was perfect for it. Plus I'm more of a sucker for Blue. ;)

Oh you're gonna do more gowns from movies? Padmés? There's a huge collection there...whee! Oh do them, please do. : *nods* That'll be fun. :D
Lauren: Beatle Georgeeowyn on March 19th, 2007 05:33 am (UTC)
Ditto! ;)

I might! I had a look and found that I would have to do 19 intial rounds for Padme, whereas for Arwen I'll only be doing 9!! So it will be big..!

I'm glad to know you're keen about it. :)
Daughter of Eveprincess_narnia on March 19th, 2007 08:50 am (UTC)
Yep she had such a huge stash of gowns...oh and then there are 3 movies from which to pick Padme's gowns, aren't there?

Absolutely...its a total girl thing to do, pick our fave dresses. :D Lovely. ♥
Lauren: Alice Coopereowyn on March 19th, 2007 09:12 am (UTC)
Yep! Immense stock of costumes...

Yes it is. :D Lots of fun.
Charmanderpokecharm on March 18th, 2007 02:59 pm (UTC)
aw, this is getting really tough :s
Lauren: Obi-Waneowyn on March 19th, 2007 05:33 am (UTC)
Sure is!
Crystal Bagginsboves_amo on March 18th, 2007 04:52 pm (UTC)
Oh man, this one *was* really hard. I voted out the blood red one because I love how stunning the blue and silver go together for Requiem, and I too am partial to blue. But the blood red one is gorgeous, ahh! That was a difficult decision. I'm excited about Eowyn and the prospect of Padme coming up...More great costumes!
Laureneowyn on March 19th, 2007 05:34 am (UTC)
*Nods* I had to choose Requiem in the end, pretty much for the same reason as you!

I'm glad you're interested in more tournaments. :)
Maiden of the Moon: Moon elf-art by Luis Royoladyithildiel on March 18th, 2007 10:10 pm (UTC)
Ohhh!Ok, this is an impossible choice, both are my favourites!!:o:p
Lauren: George 007eowyn on March 19th, 2007 05:38 am (UTC)
How hard is it! lol.
Kate: Lord of the Ringskaowyn on March 20th, 2007 02:20 am (UTC)
I voted out the red because one: blue is my favorite color and that particular shad of blue is exquisite and silvery and two: the silver beading is immaculate and stunning. While I do think that this gown is a bit too low cut, I can't help but admire and love the fabrics, craftsmanship, and beauty of it.
Lauren: Garden Stateeowyn on March 20th, 2007 07:23 am (UTC)
They are both so beautiful...but like you, I voted out red.
