Original Costume Designs

Postby Awel Prince » Jul 14, 2010 10:57 am

Before I joined the NarniaWeb forum, I had frequented the old thread for original costume design. Many of you girls kept me inspired to keep drawing. So, after making sure I wasn't stepping on any rules, I decided to reopen the thread! :) Hope you all get as much inspiration as I did! My costumes then are these (FYI: I usually don't draw faces b/c I am such a terrible drawer, just wanted to let you know before you were shocked to high heavens by head-less drawings) :

This costume reminds me of something Susan might have worn at sometime or other. If it was blue it could pass for Ramandu's Daughter dress ;)

Colorized version (my first attempt at "coloring" in GIMP): http://i32.tinypic.com/ekn8ug.jpg

I love this next one! It reminds me of something Arvis would wear:

Can't wait to see what you all have to show. :)

Wow those are really good! You draw really well! I especially like the first one! Great coloring!

The second and third ones dont look really 'Narnian' to me (not as I imagined it), they look like arabian or something. Or maybe I'm just used to the movies.

Awel Prince, I love this thread and your designs! I especially love the second one - it reminds me so much of Aravis and it's something I really would like to see her wear! Your sketches are very nice and your costume concepts are wonderful. Great work! :ymapplause:

WOW!!!! those are soo beautiful. The first one looks great as a sketch and once you colored it. i think i liked the colored one better just because it is easier to see the details, but both are beautiful! the second one does look like something i could see Aravis wearing. and i think you draw beautiful faces too! those are really amazing :ymapplause: :ymapplause: :ymapplause:

LuvNarnia, thanks!! It was fun, though a bit frustrating to learn to color in GIMP. Crayons and pencils are a lot easier...except you can't buy those sorts of colors. ;) Yeah, the 2nd one (the one for Aravis) I had imagined as her clothes before she escaped to the north. :) So they would look Caloremen (is that spelt right? :-\ ).

Lu_Valient, Thanks! :D

Pepper, you don't count because you see these in real life. :)

MountainFireflower, thanks! I've been drawing for years now. Every since I first watched LotR. :) I'll probably post some more drawings later. :)

narnia_lover127, LOL! If you think I draw beautiful faces you should see my sister Pepper's drawings! She's much better at dresses then me! Maybe I'll persuade her to post some. ;)

I agree they are both lovely! I especially like that deep red you chose for the first one, and the 2nd could totally work for aravis, in fact I really hope they do a costume design very much like that for her if/when they get around to making HHB :ymapplause:

Sooo... is this thread for pictures that you've drawn? Or can you post pictures of costumes that you've made as well?

Just wondering. :D

I love the Aravis costume!!!! I'm thinking about trying to make an Aaravis or Lasaraleen Costume... I'm still in the fabric gathering stage though :D

RoseRed, I hope so too! ;)

violetfirekrazed this is a thread for narnian-inspired costume drawings. ;) Sketches of dresses or clothes you could see in the books... For example someone could draw a sketch of the dress Jill might *possibly* wear at the end of the Last Battle and then post it here. :)

Those are very gorgeous Awel Prince! I love the split in the dress of the first drawing, I love the take on the Calormene outfit in #2, it is splendid. ;) the third one is my favorite and it is not a terrible face at all. You're really good. Keep up the fantastic work! If I ever remade Narnia in the future I'd want you to do my costumes. :D

DamselJillPole, wow I'm honored. I use to want to do costume design for movies and then gave the idea up when I realized I'd probably have to do a bunch of junkie movies where modesty wouldn't be wanted... :( Anyways. Thanks.

My second dress, I only have the colorized version uploaded, very sorry about that. It needs a little touching up, but *shrugs* I don't think it's too much touch-up. I'm not sure if it would be classified as Narnian or Archenlandish...which do you think?

Hhhhm, I think it's very Archenlandish. Susan MIGHT wear it. I think it could be either :)
