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.
