Create a box. *Create a new shader for the box *Unplug material from material output. *Create a new principled volume shader *Connect it to VOLUME on material output *turn density to 0.02 *Play with absorption.

Put the box enclosing the monkey.

Volume shading will capture light by the absorption and density parameter. Hope this helps.

You have to render the image and then you switch to the compositing tab and then add in the filter glare and change it from streaks to fog glow and then you can tweak it.enter image description here

You can try using the new Cryptomatte feature in 2.8 which will allow you to separate objects or materials in your render, I'm not very familiar with it myself yet but here is a quick test I did to get a soft glow around an object with the option to change it's color. Check out this video for more tips on how to use the Cryptomatte. https://youtu.be/Ml1Kic4VopA. enter image description here
