Arwen's bedroom banner [14 Nov 2003|04:54pm]

Cost: About $30CDN
Materials: Very thin transparent fabric, various colours of fabric paint, lots of paper, pins.

All I did was go to The LotR Costume Research Page, save a copy of the banner pattern, enlarge it until it was the same size as the one in the movie, and then printed it out in sections. I put all the pieces back together, and then hung it up on the wall, and then hung the fabric over it. I painted the fabric right through onto the paper, and let it dry that way. When it was dry, the paper was stuck to the fabric, so I just ripped off all of it that I could, and the rest under the lines I'd painted stayed on and acted as a backing, and stopped the paint from looking transparent. You can't even tell that there's paper on the back of the paint. ^^ For the water, I just pinned a layer of the same purple fabric onto the banner, hiding the pins under the gold border on the outside. I found that I could just cut the fabric along the gold border, and it wouldn't fray. That saved me from having to get out my sewing machine.

Me, yesterday morning. (This was a very spur-of-the-moment costume). I look somehwat farmer-ish. And in real life, I'm not quite that fat... I don't think. Stupid camera.
