Lady Galadriel
Lord of The Rings

Cosplayer: Raine

Status: In Progress

Condition: Not Set

This costume has not been worn at any events yet.

7th May 2013: More wig, I know so suprising! I didnt take a photo of the progress as it's too dark in the livingroom to do so and I'd have to re-comb a bit I just de naughted which I dont want to have to do again...

Between parting, de-naughting and waving it I have now spent about 10hours on this wig. I honestly believe I am high on hairspray! Either that or I've damaged my eyes/sence of smell lol. I have about another 4 hours worth of wig waving to go and then I get the joy of floofing it.

I have the circlet to make, considering a under foam padding to plastic over layer because the silver spray I have will work so much better on plastic than foam. Same with the brooch. And the whoooole sewing to go. Including pattern cutting. Ho-shoot! ;_;

3rd May 2013: 4 hours in. After 4 hours of styling i have the back n fringe to go. Save me!

29th April 2013: It works! Oh happy days! Now to just part the whole wig zzzzz

28th April 2013: Wig again. Okay so after a day of reflection I have desided I'm going to go buy a a Babyliss Hair Waver, This obviously has the 3 prongs meaning it'll shape it without me using my hairstraightners n alot of shimmying which didnt work. So fingers crossed that this works. I did put some sections of the original wig into pleats but I doubt that'll work or for long so investing in a Waver it is.

Also I have fairly short hair so I wont even be able to use it in my own hair but I can forsee my cousin wanting to "borrow" it. Lol!

26th April 2013: Rage. The other wig I ordered is shorter, thinner and a whole different shade of blonde from the image. So once again it's not right and I'm now throwing a hissy fit. I seriously doubt I'm going to get this done in time for May Expo so I may have to postpone her and chillax n come back to her before I get so annoyed that even wearing her wont make me happy.


Infact the new wig looks like it's make a better Eowyn wig than Gladdy.... >_<

30th January 2013: Wig crimping test Took a snip off my wig as when it arrived it said it couldn't be heated so I sadfaced n threw it to the side. I took a pair of old hairstraightners to it and suprisingly it did what I wanted it too! :D good times :3

28th November 2012: Elfy ears Need to be trimmed but they are nice n light and I hardly feel them at all :D

27th November 2012: Wig It arrived! Forgive me but it's late and I'm still in work clothes ¬_¬; Also it's SO long! I knew it was 150cm but still it's past my knees which totally caught me off gaurd.

21st November 2012: Prop My Nenya ring arrived in the post today n I didn't even order it more than 48hrs ago! It is soooo purdy and now to see if it fits the required finger lol! X3

19th November 2012: Wig This is the wig I bought! If you want to see the elf ears look on my hobbit versions journal xD

17th November 2012: Bought Just bought my wig and latex ears! Now to finally pick fabric :D

24th October 2012: Hair So I went on a mission on how to crimp hair without a crimping tool and I was successful!!! :D Now just to pick a wig and preferablly one that can cope with hair straightners. Mission accepted >:3

22nd October 2012: Fabric I went to Glasgow yesterday n desided to fabric hunt for Galadriel, alas the options were horrid and the one I might have accepted was £76 a meter (I need 7 ish meters) so I laughed and walked on. So the hunt continues! (It could be I'm just being overly picky?)

18th October 2012: Pattern! My pattern arrived! I only ordered it two days ago~

Now I need to deside what fabrics to go for, I defo need a lace and a silky fabric. Also trying to pick a wig to krimp arg! Why are there no good photos of her? D:

That'd be great thanks! I know it's been about 11 years since the first movie but I still though there would be better images kicking around.
