Galadriel Paper Doll

 I've been wanting to make a paper doll of Galadriel ever since I saw the first Hobbit movie (An Unexpected Adventure) way back at the end of 2012.  I preferred the first instalment of The Hobbit to the second - and one of the things I really adored about it was the beautiful soft, fluid gowns that Cate Blanchett wore.

The next OPDAG Paper Doll Studio issue has Favourite Films as its theme.  I had already sent in my submission (which I'll wait to show you after the magazine comes out on the assumption my doll will be in it) when I decided the time had come to finally make Galadriel.  When she was finished I sent her in as a second submission.  I don't know if Jenny will have space or want to include more than one of my dolls, so I thought I'd put her up on my blog straight away just in case she doesn't make the cut.  

I was really pleased with the way she came out.  She is a very practical doll - easy to cut out and dress with no fiddly bits and for that reason I think the finished result is quite effective.

Beautiful! I love the clean lines and the flowy gowns. I hope this one will get published in the movie theme issue as well, but we were lucky to get to see the doll and dressed here. :) You are so talented. :)

Absolutely beautiful! I love this one very much. A friend of mine dressed as Galadriel at a function where we had to dress as our favourite character. I do hope both of your creations are featured. Great to see you back in blog land.

Beautiful, I love clothing that drapes the body, and you have captured that feeling perfectly. Thank you for coming to visit me the other day, it's always lovely to ‘see’ you.

Good morning, Sharon! Don't you just love this world of fairy tales and paper? I am so enchanted by the paper arts and I delved in it for a while, but economic challenges forced me back into the traditional work force, for which I am grateful. But to sit and use paper as a way to create something so beautiful, now that is exciting.

Thank you for visiting! Your blog is so happy and gentle. Anita

Wonderful, Sharon! A favorite character from the Tolkien books. And Cate Blanchett is one of my favorite actresses, too. I hope she makes it into the magazine as well.
