I'm so glad you had such a great time...having met quite a few of those good ladies myself, I know how nice it is to meet up with people you have chatted with online for months...

I have a theory with regards to the Exhibition and its missing links...and I made a mistake about who I saw it with too !! When I saw it in London, it was just after "The Two Towers" came out, and one of the costumes of one of the principle characters was missing as it was "in use " - for pick-up shots I reckon...anyway, I went with a group of people from Tolkien Online, not from KD...in fact, I hadn't even joined KD then, so I hadn't met Pearl or Maeglian or anyone else !!
I reckon that the exhibtion I saw is exactly the same one as you have just seen, and it hasn't been updated for ROTK at all, and only barely had the info for how Gollum and Treebeard were filmed, ( including the full size model of Treebeard, I must say ) with regards to TTT...did you see anything that was exclusively from the ROTK at all ?
I never saw anything pertaining to Eowyn, or Elrond,either, and only saw one dress each for Galadriel and Arwen, more's the pity ( even though they WERE good dresses...
Yes, Goldenberry, I agree...we want a full LOTR Exhibition with ALL costumes on show...I would travel all the way to New Zealand to witness that, wouldn't you ? !!

I don't think I remember a "strictly RotK" item except Anduril, Narsil reforged, which was just gorgeous (though Glamdring and its scabbard surprisingly wowed me; I LOVED the colour of the scabbard).

Arwen had two costumes, lucky us -- and -- one of them was from RotK, I am sure! It looked to me like the dress she wore under another drapey, tunic-y sort of thing that matched it, in the scene in which she leaves Rivendell and, riding through the woods, sees the vision of Eldarion then rides back to confront Elrond about it. It's a greyish-blue with a wide yoke all around the neckline made of something silvery-glittery. The other costume of hers was the riding outfit she wore in FotR, when she carries the poisoned Frodo before her on Asfaloth. It was very yummy, too.
