This light green velvet gown is
worn by Arwen in The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King
during Aragorn's coronation scene.
This costume was on display as
a part of the Lord of the Rings exhibit at FIDM in March 2004. The
information on this site is a summary of my own design notes and
sketches made during my visit to the museum. Some of my notes and
observations my vary from others who observed this gown - this is
simply my own account of what I saw after carefully studying the
costume. Many of my design interpretations are based on my own experience
with embroidery, bead work, and costume construction.
