Costume Information

Description
This has been a dream of mine for ages and I'm really glad I finally got to wear it!

The costume itself was a commission, but there had to be a lot of modifications carried out (as is always the case!).

The swords were made by InYourDreamsFX.

The wig was styled by Monkey.

I am so pleased that people liked this costume on me. I very almost didnt leave my room but Leonie Heartilly convinced me that I looked good and if it wasn't for her, I would never have worn it.

Thank you everyone involved who made this possible!

You should have seen the reaction one of my friends had the minute I pointed you out. There was lots of arm flailing and squealing from both of us, so I think it's safe to say you did an awesome job. :]

Ganondorf's swords! I didn't make these AT ALL LOL Made by In Your Dreams FX.

These are fully LARP-safe swords made from foam and latex. All I've done is a bit of edging work on the ribbons as they were rushed (my fault as it was a late order!) and will be replaced at a later date! ^_^

SO FUN TO PLAY WITH!

Sleeve detailing (Posted 6th August 2012)

Didn't make the main costume, it was commissioned but I did have to improve a lot of the detailing on it (as is almost ALWAYS the case with overseas commissions!)

Really happy with it though!

Forehead Jewel (Posted 5th August 2012)

This one is also made from three layers of milliput, an epoxy resin I have NEVER used before LOL

It was a bit scary as was starting to go tacky/solidifying as I was finishing but it got done! I've also built a chain into it so I'm hoping it's strong enough to withstand that!
