DragonCon Costume Almost Done!

Finally going to DragonCon. Don't know what that is? Look it up. :) 

Anyway, I've been wanting to learn to sew and my friend Beth has been so awesome to teach me. She's fantastic. Really. We're talking movie accurate costumes. Anyway... 

I have a little crush on Richard Armitage's Tnorin Oakenshield. Don't judge lol. I've even written a Hobbit fanfic. So I decided to make a Dunedain Ranger of the North costume (Aragorn was a Ranger of the North). 

After many months of planning and work I'm just about done! The colors don't show up real well in this picture (8 year old took it) but my under tunic is a dark green and the over tunic is an awesome looking material that truly looks like worn leather. It's great. I've got my sword and a recurve bow in my right hand. All that's left is to put grommets up the sides so I can lace it shut and to make a black linen face mask. We're going to do a photo shoot when we're done so I'll post those pics when I get them!!

I can't wait to wear this to DragonCon!
