*REVIEW* LORD of the RINGS| ARWEN'S CORONATION DRESS for AMERICAN GIRL DOLLS| From ETSY SHOP: RAINBOW LILY DESIGNS

Today I have another beautifully made Arwen gown by Rainbow Lily Designs.
A reproduction of Lady Arwen's Coronation Gown from The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King movie. Modeled by my beautiful doll Maryellen. ;) She insisted on her being in this dress, since Saige was in the last one! ;D

Here is the actual dress made for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King movie. Isn't it just gorgeous?!! I'm a huge LOTR fan if you couldn't tell already! ;D

Rainbow Lily's Arwen dress is pretty close to the real one.

This is Arwen's dress that the doll's dress is based off of.  Arwen wears this dress when she finally reunites with Aragorn. This scene always makes me teary-eyed!

Aimee a.k.a. Rainbow Lily Designs did an absolutely amazing job on the trim! The sliver trim at the very top is such an elegant detail on this gown which is very similar to the actual Arwen gown worn in the movie. 

I found this image on Google of the actual Arwen gown from the movie. I kind of feel sorry for the poor seamstress who made this dress it must have taken days. Unfortunately the details of this lovely Arwen costume was barely shown in the movie.
I really love how the trim on this lovely dress frames Maryellen's face! Doesn't Maryellen look sweet in this Arwen gown?

Another detail that I really like about this dress is that the trim encircles the entire neckline and both sleeves. The dress also closes in the back with velcro.

Arwen's Coronation Gown is made from a pale green satin that is pretty close to the original color of the actual movie costume. The material of this gown is very full and flowing.

Both the sleeves of the gown have two fabrics the pale green satin and the white under sleeve. 

The sleeves can be folded up or gracefully hung down.

Here is some extra pictures I took. I just had to keep taking photos of this amazing Arwen gown!!

I honestly wish this dress was in my size!


Overall I give this Arwen costume 10 out of 10 stars! The pale green satin is very beautiful. I would have also loved to see it made with a light green velvet although light green velvet is probably very hard to find.

I hope you all enjoyed this review! I certainly enjoyed reviewing this amazing replica of Arwen's Coronation Dress from The Return of the King movie. Let me know down below in the comments what you thought of this wonderful dress!

  7. Light green velvet IS hard to find! I want to make a Te Fiti costume (from Moana) to wear this upcoming Halloween, but I can't find the fabric.
