Galadriel, Lady of Lothlórien, has an ethereal look. It’s distinctive and hard to capture without visual effects and special lighting. The key is getting the costume and hair right before any faux sparkles are added, and cosplayer Áli did a wonderful job creating the elvish ensemble. Here’s what she had to say about making the costume:
“Galadriel is one of my favourite female characters. The strength and power she yields, all under grace, I find inspiring. Galadriel means so much to me that I wanted to make sure that every aspect of this costume was made with care so I took a couple months to make it. The ‘bones’ of the gown were taken from a pre-existing wedding dress that I found at a thrift shop. I liked the idea that once upon a time someone wore this dress on a very important day in her life, so I carried that feeling into my Galadriel costume. I took the pre-existing dress apart and redid the structure to suit the change in waistline and then added the leaf patterned lace on top of it. After the gown was done I hot fixed 4000+ rhinestones, following the leaf pattern on the lace and made the crown and brooch from worbla.”
