How to DIY Ideas For Elrond Cosplay
For an Elrond costume, you can find a cloak for purchase on Amazon, but other pieces you may wish to make yourself. To make a tabard, try this video: How To Make a Basic Tabard by Selina’s Accessories.
This is a step-by-step video tutorial that takes you through the entire process of creating a basic tabard from scratch. You will need fabric in your color choice, scissors, thread, and some basic sewing machine skills. This is a very simple project that is good for beginners as well as more advanced sewers. Entire project takes approximately two to three hours from start to finish.
To create a basic Elrond cosplay piece, this tutorial could be used, using a heavier, sturdier fabric. To get the look of Elrond’s clothing, you could use duct tape in brown, gold, black, or whatever color you wish your costume to be. Tape each side at a V shaped angle and do layer after layer, barely overlapping the previous layer, to create an authentic look.
