Arwen Costume Tournament Round 9

The Coronation Gown was voted out in favour of the Chase Dress.

Do not vote for your favourite. The idea is to vote OUT your least favourite!

Weta White
This gown does not appear in the movies - but has the briefest of glimpses in one of the trailers. There is a shot of Arwen smiling, moving forwards. This is rumoured to have been from a flashback scene of Arwen and Aragorn's meeting, where they dance together. The gown is thus named as it features on a Sideshow Weta Arwen figure - which also happens to be the best shot of the gown, as shown here.

The Arch Dress
Though seen in some lovely promotional images, this gown is also cut from the film. It is believed to have been from that far-out storyline of Arwen traveling to Lothlorien and then going on to fight at Helm's Deep. In some shots it appears blue, in others, purple. What snazzy colour-changing fabric it has!

The Arch dress looks actually better in the promo photos - and I'd tickle PJ senseless if he'd just show us those scenes! *whimpers*
I'm not sure though if it has anything to do with the Helm's Deep storyline.
The first pics appeared for the FotR promotion before the movie even had started. Also, do you know these merlin albums, where you collect stickers for them? They have them in the FotR album, towards the end, with some lines about how Arwen struggles with her decision, mortality or immortality.
And when the RotK promotion started, they dug out new pics from that scene for the Topps cards, thus I think it's 'just' a scene between Elrond and Arwen that would've been fitting anywhere.
Lauren: Eowyn Runeowyn on March 28th, 2007 11:49 am (UTC)
Lol! Put it that way, he might show them!!

Ah yes, you may be right: read this Topps card.

However, I believe it still belongs to that Helm's-Deep-Warrior-Arwen storyline. That storyline which has Arwen as a figure who actively goes out and assists the others - eg rescuing Frodo, fighting at Helm's Deep, helping Aragorn look into the Palantir, etc. The storyline later fashioned for Arwen had her as more of a muse, which we see now in the films.

Guess we'll never really know until YOU SHOW US THE DAMN FOOTAGE, PETE!!

damn, I liked the coronation gown! come on people...that was so wrong...*flannel sighs*
elanordhelanordh on March 28th, 2007 12:49 pm (UTC)
I wanted it to win too! *pouts* I'll return later, now I have to go! You probably win this time, you know where ;)
Charmanderpokecharm on March 28th, 2007 01:03 pm (UTC)
I do like winning :p and I don't know why it got voted it...that is such a great dress - and looked great on Liv! see you later dear!

Many people commented that they did not like the colour.

I notice it lost too *flannel pouts*

Actually, even though the idea of Arwen doing ANYTHING but sewing stuff makes me enraged I would have to pick the archdress. The "White Weta" looks like they took Eowyn's white gown swapped the arm ties and belt and stuck it on Arwen. That and it looks way to similair to the halo dress, the bridge dress..etc. If there is one thing to be said about Arwen its her costumes never lacked variety.Well up until they just started pallete swapping the same pattern.
Lauren: Eowyn Boweowyn on March 30th, 2007 09:02 am (UTC)
They are similiar, that's true - and probably why I like it over the arch dress. I despise the arch dress: it's fabric, cut and colour really don't agree with me!!
Abigaellast_chael on March 28th, 2007 12:42 pm (UTC)
Hmmm not particularly liking either, they're both a little plain. But I decided to vote out the arch in favour of the white, coz the white is nice a simple. Gah! Wish we could see more pics!! :P
Lauren: Eowyn Boweowyn on March 30th, 2007 09:02 am (UTC)
I'm not a fan of either gown, also. But I really hate the arch - it's my absolute least favourite Arwen gown!!

Me too!!
Abigaellast_chael on March 30th, 2007 09:40 am (UTC)
I love all your Eowyn icons! :D Eowyn is my absolute favourite character out of LotR! :D I want to make quite a few of her dresses! :D
Lauren: Denethoreowyn on March 30th, 2007 10:31 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm rather an Eowyn addict. ;)

Oh, me too...I think I'll have to talk my Mum into helping me, though!
lordofhaladinlordofhaladin on March 28th, 2007 01:59 pm (UTC)
I'm so glad the chase won, but I have to say, I was torn.

adn this one... well I was torn for the otehr reason. I don't really like either of them.... but the arch is better IMO.
Lauren: Aragorneowyn on March 30th, 2007 09:03 am (UTC)
I was happy with the result, too. :)

I don't like either, but I really dislike the arch, so this one was easy!

Ooh, the first dress is GORGEOUS! Its a bit like the white Eowyn one ins style..though the fabric is prob different...The shimmery one, prob looks better when its actually on film. Here's its kinda bright...bet it looks all fairy like though.
Still, the white one is a winner to me...so blue out. ;)

Man these girls had gorgeous clothes to wear in the film. :D
Lauren: Liv Gloveseowyn on March 30th, 2007 09:04 am (UTC)
It is a bit Eowyn-ish. I don't really like either gown here, but I voted arch out.
kailorien on March 28th, 2007 03:51 pm (UTC)
I voted out the Shimmerey one, simpley because I didnt think Elves, particularily Arwen liked to attract THAT MUCH attention to themselves. Thats a dress with a high Risk of Sun Cancer.
Lauren: Green Faeryeowyn on March 30th, 2007 09:04 am (UTC)
The arch dress is awful, imo. LOL!!!!
Atanone: 14atanone on March 28th, 2007 07:22 pm (UTC)
hmmm...seems there's not many like me,but-well..blue is blue :)
