Arha, the Eaten One
Source: The Tombs of Atuan [Book]
Debut: Starfest 2007
Competitions: None
Awards: None
Status: Completed

Arha has been one of my favorite characters in literature for years.  When my interest in the Earthsea books rekindled especially after the production of Studio Ghibli's Tales from Earthsea, I poured over and over the old books again, and decided that doing an Arha costume would be a very appropriate tribute.  I always fancied myself quite like her in appearance, being naturally very pale, but dark of hair.  This was a fun little project that I had mostly done with an old black linen SCA dress, so I only needed to make the black hood and obtain a few keys and a dark wig to complete the look.  I'd like a nice leather belt to go with, I may add that in the future.

It was lots of fun to wear this at Starfest locally, where I could dress like a book character (not that anyone could tell who I was XD) and no one would look askance at me. XD
