This is a very ornate costume I designed with Varda, Queen of the Valier, in Elf-type form, in mind. I imagine she'd don this for a very formal occasion, and I thought it was beautiful. I placed emphasis on the costume rather than her face, which explains why it sucks so bad, and I really wish I'd had a model. Anyway, this is also what I want to wear on Halloween and to the premier of the Return of the King. Luckily I have an aunt who is a sewing guru and loves me. If she thinks it's do-able, we can work on it this summer. I intend to color this once I have a good pen to outline it with, and someday I'll do a much better picture of Varda in this dress. I have something in mind . . . but I need watercolor lessons first.
