Little sketch of Legolas’ Mother/Thranduil’s wife! Middle Earth sucks me in from time to time (totally not complaining!) ;)
It’s a pity they took out most mentions of her from the movies as it gave a lot more depth into Thranduil’s character and his relationship with his son (also an interesting parallel with Tauriel’s business), even if, technically speaking, practically none of it was canon.
And so they came at last deep into the glen; and there stood a sheer wall of rock, and in the wall the Dark Door gaped before them like the mouth of night. Signs and figures were carved above its wide arch too dim to read, and fear flowed from it like a grey vapour.
The company halted, and there was not a heart among them that did not quail, unless it were the heart of Legolas of the Elves, for whom the ghosts of Men have no terror.
Quick mini shoot that starship-amaura did for me at the start of April. I didn’t have proper makeup; I had just jumped out of an Usagi cosplay and into Galadriel because I had just received my wig in the mail. I plan to have better makeup and my ears will be much better blended next time I’m able to do a shoot.
