Costume Information

For a while now i have lost the will to make cosplays,don't know why, just nothing seems to have inspired me and even can't be bothered to finish my october cosplays.

After listening to some Legend of zelda ocarina of time music, it reminded me of Nabooru, Ganondorfs second in charge, leader of the gerudo guards and the sage of spirit. I loved her spirit and personality and how much she spited ganondoft and hated him for how he treated her people and the rest of the world.

For this i am going to need some serious dark fake tan, so if anyone knows of any good ones please let me know. And to tone my body up a little as she is really slim and seem to be a bit muscley in the arms.

I have to say i am really looking forward to making this! especially the jewellery, it's so beautiful, it is really going to be a challenge =].

History of The Gerudo

The Gerudos are one of the most striking races from Hyrule, although it is unknown if they truly originated here. Like the Kokiri, they are highly unusual, mostly in the fact that 99.9% of the population is female. A male Gerudo is only born once every one-hundred years, leaving the Gerudo to travel from their isolated communities to towns and villages to find a mate with whom to reproduce with. They are easily recognisable from their olive skin and bright red hair. Gerudos always have amber eyes and their noses are extremely pointed. Their clothes are crafted from light silks and muslins in bright patterns and colours and they also have a love for jewellery.

They originally inhabited a hot desert in the far southwest of Hyrule, which now does not geographically exist, due to a shift in water levels around the country. However the Gerudos were used to travel and many also lived lives as pirates upon boats. They worshipped a deity they called The Great Goddess and many lived in great fortresses. In these modern times, the Gerudos now live in the country of Benlucca. It is known that the evil wizard Ganon was born originally as Ganondorf Dragmire, and was King of the Gerudos hundreds of years ago. When he was banished to the Dark World for his evil doings, he became the twisted, pig-creature Hyrulians are familiar with. But not all Gerudos were bad; The Town of Nabooru is named after the Gerudo Princess who helped Hyrule fight against Ganondorf.

These beautiful women tend to be thieves by trade, and also fearless warriors. They also have a natural aptitude for magic. These days most Gerudos work as dancers and entertains, though some have fallen into a more depraved life than others, selling their bodies to live. Others find work as guards and warriors, since their skills in swordplay and archery are not easily matched.

26/10/11 - the legend of zelda symphony was beautiful! And hearing my favourite piece of music, the gerudo valley brang back the urge to cosplay again! And this is the one for me, I have wanted to do this for years and now its happening! Full speed ahead!!!

With me as Gerudo and Flare Dancer, Raye as Sheik, and Mandy as whoever she feels like doing, we'll be epic! If Mandy doesn't do TwinRova for this, ask Alyx as she has it planned too. Oh yes!
