This is probably my most expensive cosplay to date. Since I was cosplaying Galadriel and she's so regal I spared no expense. I used bridal satin, swarkovski rhinestones, an arda wig, really nice bridal fabric for the cape. It cost a lot but I liked how it looked in the end. I altered a noble dress pattern and drafted the cape pattern from a cape pattern I already had and added 20 inches onto the end. The toughest things about making this costume was the fact that the Hobbit just came out so there weren't many reference pictures so I took artistic liberties, making my dark brown eye brows light blonde and dealing with the delicate cape fabric.
