I've always imagined her in something with a bodice like this...

I love the draped, elegant, simple look. :)

Something like this only not necessarily metallic? Or more like a ribbon woven through her hair?

Personally, sometimes I like the idea of hair jewelery, and sometimes I prefer the idea of simplicity... as illustrated by Howard Pyle in this picture.

That is a beautiful dress, PR. I like the subtle shine in the fabric. :)

On page 2, I mentioned Arwen's bridge dress. I didn't put in a link, so here's one:

Just another dress to consider.

I like those dresses ANS. Personally I have fallen in quite the Pride and Prejudice mood. The dresses worn to the Netherfield ball wolud be great in blue

Valiant_Lucy posted an Alberta Ferretti dress in the Spare Oom Fashion thread and I thought, if it were blue, it might suit Ramandu's daughter. :)

I'm not sure about the shade I chose, but y'all get the idea.

I really think the dress needs to be flowing and of a very light blue with silver. I think the sleeves need to cover the arms and possibly go past the hands for a fairy/magic type feel. I have always seen her as a fairy type person so I kind of hope it's a fairy type dress. :)

I think I'd like to see her in a very simple dress, simple and elegant. Like Princess Leia wears in the original trilogy. Something long and straight with vertical lines, no sleeves, and of course blue... and in a fabric that moves beautifully, like Galadriel's dress when she walks down the stairs to the Mirror of Galadriel.

the4signs[repeat], that is the coolest username I've seen in forever!

Meltintalle, that outfit is stunning! The funny thing is I think the part I like best is the shoes. We haven't discussed RD's shoes much, have we?
A_Narnian_Ship, I love the sleeves! I don't see sleeves like that much in movies anymore, I'd like to see some included in VDT.
PrincessRosario, I do think that bodice would fit too. Very free and Grecian.

A_Narnian_Ship, that Arwen dress is exactly what I visioned for Ramandu's daughter as well. It's gorgeous!

You know, I always imagined Ramandu and his daughter as being barefoot. Does it say that in the book? Or maybe R'sD would wear sandals with super thin straps that glitter a little bit.

I'm so glad you like my sign in name, Lucy P!!! My brother told me it was stupid. :-s
But now both you and Pattertwigs Pal have told me that you like it!
I feel so much better! :ymhug:

the4signs[repeat] brace yourself for another fan because your screen name does rock. Also i do remember reading that Ramandu and his daughter are barefoot and RD is barefoot in the illustration with Caspian.
Although I really hope they will wear sandals or slippers maybe.

Oooh! Everyone has such lovely ideas!! Personally I think of it as a pale,silvery blue light-weight fabric with loose, swirly embroidery in silver and maybe blue. I also think it to be like Arwen's dream dress (but a bit more modest ;) ), and floor length with a small train. :)

I do believe the book says that her arms are bare but I do not know about her feet. I aways pictured her bare footed. I like these may be in this colour or this:

There's a lot of great input here! I agree with the general consensus of simple but elegant, and I do feel that Ramda and Ramandu should be barefoot.

I'd like to add that she should have flowers in her hair for at least one scene. Not any big or showy variety, just one or two smaller types in harmonizing colors.
