I have been wanting to make a Galadriel for years, and now that I’m finally back in an area with
perfect forests for shooting such costumes, I figured it was time! That and a friend encouraged
me to finally make it, which is usually all it takes!
I decided to make her dress from the Hobbit movie: Battle of the Five Armies. I love her net overlay
dress, and the crown she wears in that one. The main body of the dress is dupioni silk, I dyed the
roots of the wig to be a slight shade darker blonde for a more realistic, natural color. All photos
here were shot by Rob Somers Photo!
