The Lord of the Rings has many elaborate costumes, so it’s no wonder fans love to cosplay his characters. Here are some of Arwen’s best cosplays.
The Lord of the Rings is such a popular fantasy series with so many elaborate costumes, it’s no wonder fans around the world love to cosplay some of their favorite characters. While most of the main characters are men who tend to wear clothes made for battle or on the road, there are female characters. These women wear extremely gorgeous and detailed dresses.
Of all the women in the franchise, Arwen is one of the most popular characters for cosplayers. She has a wide array of intricate outfits to choose from, so many fans love to recreate her looks on their own.
9 Elven royalty
Coco is a cosplayer who dresses as many popular characters including many Disney princesses including Aurora. However, they are also known to dress as women of The Lord of the Rings.
Here, the cosplayer wears Arwen’s navy and red dress, which is a favorite with many fans. But, they also have a lot of pictures in costume like Galadriel that look amazing.
8 The Evenstar
To help elevate the cosplays, many fans have beautiful, detailed photoshoots to show off their costumes and get into character. This fan makes his own costumes and here dons an Arwen outfit that you don’t see as often in cosplays.
It’s a lovely silvery blue color, and the backdrop of the snowy woods really brings this dress to life. The cosplayer seems to really be the character here.
7 Not a damsel in distress
If you like cosplayers who can show off a lot of different skills in their craft and face a lot of different characters, Melskie is someone you should follow. They have all kinds of characters they play, including Wonder Woman. But, this image of them as Arwen is especially great.
While many of Arwen’s outfits are more decadent and regal, this one is her most practical form from the movie. This outfit is complete with Arwen’s own curved sword, and the photo really captures her beauty and strength.
6 The iconic dress
However, the prettiest of all could be this one. It’s a popular choice for cosplayers to emulate, and this side-by-side photo shows how movie cosplayer Ari looks like him.
5 A tailor-made suit
This could be one of Arwen’s most amazing cosplays if you just look at the craft. This outfit was custom made, and the artist even lets fans see the creation process in these detailed tweets.
Heidi’s final creation is so much like the movie version, but also has a unique twist. Forest photography brings it all together. The amount of work and love that has clearly gone into this cosplay is staggering and it is so amazing to see the final version when everything is gathered and ready for the picture.
4 A bittersweet fairy tale
While many cosplayers who enter Arwen’s character like to do it on their own, others like to work with other cosplayers to play multiple characters, and it’s pretty common to see people like Arwen and Aragorn.
While there are many great Arwen and Aragorn cosplays out there, this example could be one of the best. Both costumes are detailed and each fan brings the essence of the love between these two characters.
3 “So it’s a good dream”
This cosplay is absolutely dreamy. From the dress to the pose through the filter on the photo, it highlights this dream aesthetic. This outfit is another one that is not made as often by cosplayers, but it is a gorgeous dress.
The light purple of the dress contrasts with the deep greens of the first. And, if you don’t recognize this costume, it’s the one Arwen wears in the dream sequence with Aragorn in The two towers.
2 A queen
Arwen is royalty in many ways. Not only is she the daughter of Elrond, a high elf, and Lady Arwen of Rivendell, but she also becomes queen of the entire human realm after her marriage to Aragorn.
This costume shows off the coronation robe, including the intricate Elven headdress that she wears in this scene.
1 “If you want it … come and claim it!”
This intense cosplay is another great recreation of the outfit Arwen wears while saving Frodo and fleeing the Nazgul on horseback, one of his best scenes in the franchise. It’s an action-packed image that shows Arwen’s strength as an Elven warrior as well as her grace.
This cosplayer also does a great job of showing off a serious yet beautiful facial expression that truly reflects Arwen’s personality.
