Elven traveling dress 2007 by LenoraGewandungen Elven traveling dress 2007 by LenoraGewandungen
A costume I made in 2007 for my LARP-character "Lenora" (highelven queen).
It consists of an underdress (brown linen), a short and a long jacket and a belt. All embroideries are hand-made :)

Outfit: Lenora Gewandungen…

As usual it´s ALL made by myself - from design to pattern and realisation. The costume is unique and will not be made again.

The dress is stunning.
My elves travel in swamps, and in wet and unpleasent weather often. Usually through thick undergrowth while they are at it.
The roads have mud sometimes...and even horse and oxen droppings in human lands. Jagged terrain and sharp rocks are also not out of the question.
I think my elven characters might have things a bit harder then yours!
Not to mention getting the bloodstains out of something like that.

One wonders what she wears when she is being fancy...

Thanks a lot!

By the way the dress is for a highelven queen, not for a woodelf - She don´t has to walk through mud or swamps or undergrowth ;) (But I did and had no problem with that.)
Highelves live in huge citys, luxury and they love pretty things. So the dress must fullfill their sense of beauty, the representative status of the queen (so it is extremely noble and not a standard) and don´t have to be practical in any way... And if there are bloodstains on her dress, her life guards must have failed ;D (Anyway I had some on the dress before. But after a wash in the machine they are all out. The fabric is very thankful with that...)
For a more noble occassion I have other elegant dresses with high grade fabrics (silk, velvet...), more ornamentation or a more flowing and elegant profile.

But I´m playing other elven characters, too (just look at my woodelf/wildelf picture). And they and their clothing are more close to nature and more practical. I really understand what you mean - but both character types are extremely different. One is very dirty and wild (I love that <3), and the other (here) is from upper nobility.

I think there are more types of elves - from the noble and wise highelves to merciless and close to nature woodelves. And there is much more in between - even apart from what profession they are ;) So their clothing is never the same and there is a huge room for interpretation and differences.

This is amazing...quick question..
The long sleeves with the slits are connected to the long jacket, and the short jacket is over top of that? am i right? if so u must have had fun pulling all those sleeves through the tiny short sleeves..
Aliaena Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Also wat material are the jackets made from, the back view shows the lines and they give it a sliming effect.

Traveling dress??
This looks like a wonderful wedding dress!

Oh es wäre wohl ein Traum wenn die Braut mit der ich mich vermählte in ferner Zukunft solch ein Gewand tragen würde...

This is really beautiful. The light jacket over the dark dress really pops and I really love the sleeves and the embroidery on the short over jacket.

I´m open for commisions ;) I´m designing and realizing this fantasy/costume and clothing stuff. But all my works are single pieces and not allowed to copy! ;)

So I design new pieces for every customer...
Just look at my user profile - and if you´ve got a question, just ask ;)
K-SKitten Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2010
I absolutely think this is a fantastic dress. Do you possibly sell dresses like this?
^^ Bitte bitte - is ja nur die wahrheit
Also wenn du dieses Glanzstück mal loswerden möchtest *hüstel* (Sehr unwahrscheinlich)
Denk bitte an mich!! :D

Und mach weiter so: Es ist immer eine Augenweide deine Näharbeiten zu bewundern!
LenoraGewandungen Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2010  Professional Artisan Crafter
