I made this Frodo costume for my boyfriend for a masquerade in 2008. I made all the garments from scratch. The pants are made in wool, and have a frontal opening, inspired by 1800-century pants. I also made the hem V-shaped in the back to add some oldfashion feeling to the pants.
The shirt is made in some synthetic material, but feels like a blend of cotton and linnen. Since I had never made a shirt before, I constructed a pattern based on my study of the shirts in the movie as well as my boyfriends own shirts.
For the red vest I wanted a fabric that was stiff but looked exclusive, so I bought a lovely red fabric for funitures that had a velvet look. I cut the vest in the waistline and added some hidden pockets in the seam. It all turned out very well! The fit of the garments is great and he has actually worn both the shirt and vest on other occations.
The cloak is basically just a half-cirkled piece with a hood on it. This was the most expensive piece, made from very sturdy(?) wool, in swedish we call it “vadmal”.
