Elf Costume

Christopher used a filter and edited this photo of my new costume, but see the link below for some other photos.

I originally intended to wear this costume yesterday, but we weren’t sure if the event was going to be cancelled due to weather.

The theme is different than I usually do — Picnic with the Pixies. Anything fantasy-related. I decided to do a loosely inspired Lord of the Rings-type costume.

I was actually nervous I wouldn’t finish in time. I was trying something new with an accessory, and the gown itself ended up taking more time than I intended. It’s amusing that I finished two days before the event, but ended up not going.

I decided to go ahead and take some of my usual indoor photos for the blog, and since they’ve decided to have a second picnic (same theme) I hope to have more photos to add.

I might also go to my usual garden location early in the morning sometime for a few of them if we have time and good weather.

Anyway, please click the link below to see the outfit. Best Wishes!

About Cynthia Griffith

I have way too many interests and hobbies, and continually cycle through them -- paying attention to some, while others wait for when I can get around to them again. My main interests are sewing and costuming (I enjoy historical clothing, such as 18th and 19th century, as well as fantasy costumes like elves and hopefully someday even dwarves), as well as getting back to art by drawing fan art of Thorin Oakenshield and Company. My husband Christopher and I spend a lot of time together, enjoying the outdoors and shared hobbies such as juggling. This blog and website is my way to share what I'm up to with friends and family.
