We had an awesome time doing this lovely Arwen photoshoot with the beautiful Harmonii Moonchylde, her costume looks fantastic and we managed to find some beautiful locations. Geek Girl Wandering Dana
did the photography and what an amazing job she did. Here is what Harmonii Moonchylde had to say about the character and herself...
"JRR Tolkien's Arwen Undomiel: Daughter of Elrond, grandchild of Galadriel, descendant of Luthien Tinuviel, evenstar of her people. Blood of the Eldar race also mingled with that of the Valar, if the stories be true. Doomed say some to fall in love with a mortal, thereby forsaking her immortality to be with her heart's desire. Also bestowing upon the world a great gift. Instead of the beauty of the elves vanishing from the face of earth forever, she and precious few others stayed behind, and in doing so, the magick of the elves was, though diminished, nonetheless passed down. These days its rare to find a true elven spirit, but they are out there, and I am but one.
My respect for the natural world and all creatures in it far surpasses my level of tolerance for what is known as 'human nature'. Though I love all beings, it is hard to relate to a race with such greed and cruelty. Long before I knew anything of Tolkien's world, I knew that this was where I had belonged, and I'd never look back, never strive to be who im not.
I love playing elves. D&D, LOTRO, WOW, Halloween and yes, the sci fi expo, any excuse to represent the elven community every chance I get. My husband gave me Arwen's Evenstar on our wedding day, to show support to my elven nature. I honestly couldn't think of a more precious gift, or a deeper level of acceptance from the love of my life. This shoot simply allowed me to showcase my nature and my most precious jewel.
By men of later days elves still at times are seen: present yet remote. A living vision of that which has been left far behind by the flowing streams of Time. To this shadow, I am a small but long-forseen part. Things I have seen in my sleep, if sleep it could be called by Men, resting my mind in the strange paths of elvish dreams even as I walk open-eyed in the light of this world.
Angel's eyes, broken mind, elven heart and soul."
