“In place of the Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain! Dreadful as the Storm and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!” In the movie, what she says is different, which is: “In place of a Dark Lord, you would have a queen! Not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the dawn! Treacherous as the sea! Stronger than the foundations of the earth! All shall love me, and despair”
I saw thispost while perusing my dash and I became so enraptured with the thought of Lucy Liu as Galadriel I just had to draw it out before the mental image disappeared. Dress is based off of this and this, images compiled in inspiration of Galadriel by @lotrfashion, who themselves have very, very, very amazing Asian lotr fancasts which I would highly recommend looking at. Note: I debated whether or not I should give her Lucy’s darker hair color (because I absolutely adore her hair), but decided to take a chance and keep Galadriel’s canon hair color, as it is important to many plot and character points (including her name).
I really enjoyed this, and may do more in the future :D
