The Book of Decades

The idea is (for each prompt) to fill one page per decade of one’s life with text, pictures, poems or scrap-book-like items.

Manwë - Where is the farthest place you have traveled?

Far is always relative… the longest trip I took (in miles) was from Brazil to Australia. Some places though are “close to home” but so far away… In my case, most places are miles and miles away but I feel like I’m there!

Vana - What is your favorite part of your body?

My eyes (like you!)

Vairë - What is your favorite piece of clothing?

My favorite piece of Tolkien-related clothing is the Sindar Elf dress I made for the LOTR read-along. I also made two t-shirts that I love; one is Gondor and one Rohan themed.

"But to Sam the evening deepened to darkness as he stood at the Haven; and as he looked at the grey sea he saw only a shadow on the waters that was soon lost in the West. There still he stood far into the night, hearing only the sigh and murmur of the waves on the shores of Middle-earth, and the sound of them sank deep into his heart."  - and mine…

Rivendell Circlet

"Mithril" and "blue gems" represent the water falls of Imladris.

(Since jewelry plays such a pivotal role in Tolkien’s works, I decided to try my hand at it using things I had laying around.)

I’m not a cosplayer, but I very much enjoy making costumes. For this Sindar Elf dress I used elements present in the costumes designed for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movie Elves.

SInce the movies inspired this costume I’m considering this my submission to the “movies” field of the read-along bingo card.
