Ellen Grace

WikiLeaks Costume

Ellen Grace is makes and wears costumes based on anime. She was inspired by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange's work to make this costume – Lady Justice. Ellen’s costume is an updated take on the Roman goddess of justice, incorporating both WikiLeaks’ logo and the organization’s methods of information distribution and acquisition. Ellen said that this is “some kind of monument for WikiLeaks.” 

 She said she came up with the idea in May 2014 and spent about 3 months just looking for materials. She completed the costume this April. The costume has almost 1,148ft. of fabric, “including costume silk, сhiffon and organza.” Ellen also used fiberglass, plastic, a variety of paints and leather. She said, “it was very difficult to find leather of the colors I needed”.
