^^Idk. Just b/c it looks like it has a lion's head doesn't mean it's Peter's. I would be rather upset if it was.

I really like Lucy's outfit for this, but I like others, I hope she has at least one dress.

I wouldn't be so sure Liberty! There are whole islands we don't know anything much about yet. There's plenty of room for a dress to appear somewhere...
I hope...

^I'm assuming she'll have either a dress or a skirt on for her England outfit. Otherwise I would be highly upset about historical accuracy, however it will be a shame not to see her in a Narnian dress (they're gorgeous!)

I think she will be wearing at least one dress. Maybe they will have a scene where Lucy is present {and wearing a dress} at the wedding of Caspian and the Daughter of Ramandu?

well, she probably will have one then :) ! I just like the way she looks in the outfit she's wearing in most of the pictures!

At first I didn't want Lucy to be in Caspian's clothes for the entire film but it looks as if it might be that way. I am starting to like the sword she carries. I wonder if she will beat out Susan in the tough category of rivaling sisters. lol!

I really hope she does wear a dress but not at the wedding...they are supposed to be gone by then. That is the whole reason they are able to rescue the last three lords and Caspian can marry RD

NothinButNarnia wrote:true NarniaWally, I hope her dress (if she wears a dress) is different from the ones in the past 2 movies, it just wouldnt be practical and I think look pretty foolish on the Dawn Treader

I would hope that she would wear a dress at some point. In that day and age, it would have been inappropriate for a lady, let alone a queen to wear anything less than a dress, regardless of how impractical it would seem. In the pics in the books she's in a dress. The pics show different styles where she is not wearing a dress which seem to show that they've tried to modernize everything for the film again. That does not inspire me much as the books do not lend themselves to being modernized well. I know they change things for the films. Oh how I wish they wouldn't. I'd prefer Lucy in a dress once she's out of Caspian's clothes. Even if it were like Susan's battle costume, like for the battle in PC, they at least kept her in a dress.

Well put, Narniajewel!
Now, what were you talking about in the book? Have they made new pictures aside from Pauline Baynes' (that would be a great offense!!!)? Her pictures only show Lucy in her dress from here and Caspian's clothes...I really hope they do not follow those pictures because Lucy really needs a dress!! [-( :D

I say Enough of this debate on whether or not she has a dress ;) ...let us move to a more intetesting subject. Like what it should look like if she does have one.

Well, I don't remember if I've posted this or not, but I've been drawing Lucy in VDT as wearing an underdress based on Caspian's main shirt in PC, and an overdress inspired by this picture. (I believe the couple is Dutch, and it's dated from the 1600's.)

my pictures: front view
back view
swirly side view (and my favourite)

Meltintalle I love your drawings of Lucy and the dress. It looks very Narnian. :)

Great job!

Costumes from the Trailer:

Lucy in the scene with the box of groceries:
A dark brown coat with a fur collar (how cold is Cambridge supposed to be in summer?). Skirt shows just below hem of coat (see below). Dark brown lace-up shoes and fawn/white ankle socks. Blue hair band. Thick medium brown wool scarf. There is a silver brooch pinned on her coat - can't see what it is.

Lucy in the spare room/transition by water:
Dark grey plaid skirt cut on the cross. Medium-dark grey buttoned cardigan (highish v-neck), over lighter blue-grey blouse with collar and little pintucks either side of central button bands. Blue hair band.
In the rescue shot on the side of the ship we see her blouse showing about 2 inches below the cardigan. On board she is now holding a rough woven brown blanket over her to keep warm, and her blouse collar and top button are showing.

Lucy in mirror shot:
Wearing a man's plain white shirt.

Lucy waving to seagirl:
Fancier shirt, with gathered standing collar,more like those Caspian wore in PC.
She is wearing the same shirt in the Magician's room, but with the orangey brown leather jerkin - the point at the front of the standing collar can fold down (like a normal collar).

(I haven't mentioned the trousers she is wearing with the shirts - in the screen caps it's hard to see them. But somewhere she has gained the blue velvety trousers we all admire!)

Good breakdown, coracle. Couple things: I'm not seeing a fur collar, just the scarf, which kind of looks like a fur collar in the close-up shots. I think the brooch you mentioned is actually three large matching buttons down the right breast of the coat—see this shot.

So far, besides that embroidered white shirt in the mirror shot, and her English costume, we've still only basically seen one costume—the blue velvet trousers/white shirt/red tunic/sometimes with detachable long sleeves outfit. ;)
