Creator Spotlight

Lauren Does Cosplay meets Galadriel

Looking for More Tolkien Content? This is where every week we will recommend a (hopefully new to you!) creator or community devoted to Tolkien-related content.

We adore Cosplay. The multiple layers of talent it takes to craft a perfect costume and embody a character just blows us away! One of our favorite Cosplayers who often covers the worlds of Tolkien in her work is LaurenDoesCosplay.

Lauren recently attended SDCC in this STUNNING Galadriel cosplay and met with Rings of Power's own Galadriel, Morfydd Clark. Isn't this awesome?
