Middle-earth: Shadow of War has spawned an entirely new cosplay character with the games interpretation of Shelob.
“Even as Frodo spoke he felt a great malice bent upon him, and a deadly regard considering him.” ~ J.R.R. Tolkien
A new interpretation of the dreadful spider monster in Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings has been given a new life for cosplay in Shadow of War.
Elena Samko Cosplay out of Novosibirsk, Russia, which has a thriving Middle-earth Cosplay scene takes on this new vision of Shelob. The spawn of Ungoliant, seen in the terrible tunnels of Cirth Ungol is a hard sell for most coplayers, but this new take on the giant spider in human form, opens the door to an interesting interpretation of the character.
Though definitely not Canon, this is still an intriguing cosplay character. Using the dark look of Shelob in the game, with the new Ring which glows blue and of course a living spider to top it off!
