Tauriel (The Hobbit)

Photos by Zippy’s Ventures

Tauriel, from The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. Costume self-patterned and made from mostly hand dyed materials, including dark green suede doublet, brown corset, bracers, and belt, and light green raw silk. Leggings are also my own pattern, and made from stretch faux leather.

The boots have been heavily modified with added braided vinyl detailing. The knives are made from plywood cut with a jigsaw and hand-sanded into the desired blade shape. The handles are sculpted and detailed with apoxy sculpt. Everything is hand-painted.

This costume (paired with my Thranduil) won Best Advanced Class at ConNooga 2016 and Best in Show at DragonCon’s “The Chosen” costume contest.
