General
Cost : 20 pounds so far

Description
I didn't feel right not doing a LoZ cosplay for Amecon this year so I'm adding this to my list XD

*16/08/2010*
Sadly the dress didn't fit :/ didn't realise this until I was trying to get into it... There were also too many bits of it missing/unfinished for me to want to wear it. Really disappointing.
I was also then missing a dress for the ball, thankfully I was able to find one in the dealers room by a massive stroke of luck.

EDIT: 23/05/2013

Moving this back to "Planned" for now so I can de-clutter my account a bit. Makes sense to only keep the ones I'm actually working on currently in the "In Progress" bit. It'll get finished eventually XD

I missed when you updated this!
The dress and tabbard are looking lovely. I do adore the detailing on the tabbard and the colours are so pretty, they really stand out. :]
I can't wait to see you do the little hair clips. They're cute. ^^

@sjbonnar: Aww thanks, well I've lost a stone in weight over the winter so now I can get into it again without any alterations! I might be bringing it to Ayacon though as I'm not going to Oct Expo
Will TOTALLY need photos with you though! Must must~

Journal

Moar~ (Posted 11th July 2011)

Today I repainted and glossed the chest plate and belt panels and also painted and glossed the new tiara :3 I was using Polymorph but I've managed to colour it pretty nicely so I'm pretty proud since it's so hard to do~

The dress just needs the back seam closed up and then I just need to measure the bottom and hem it. The shawl will need to be redone as it's not quite broad enough for my shoulders, also need to get some white foam for the wing clips and it should be pretty much done!

Will post up some proper shots soon~

Tiara- take 2 (Posted 6th July 2011)

So I looked back at my last starting point for the tiara and decided to try and make it out of something else

With a couple of moulds and some polymorph I managed to get it looking like this :D

Onwards!

A-woot~ (Posted 30th June 2011)

Ok so after a major setback in sizing I couldn't do this for Kitacon in the end, though the upside is that over the last 6 months I've been losing weight and I can now get in the dress with space to spare!

Going to get this finished for Aya methinks and join the LoZ group!

Moar (Posted 26th July 2010)

Added the bias to the top of the dress, need to get my ass around to cut and hem the bottom, as I'm far too short to wear it as it is now TT^TT then I'll probably just paint on the zig-zag bits with paint as I still have too much to do on Serenade...

Shawl needs to be hemmed and gathered and then that's done.

Necklace has been finished now as well, oh polystirene balls/paint/pva glue, how I loves you :3

Chestplate is mostly cut out, used some thick foam for the base, using some .2mm foam on the top for the detailing, then I'm spraying it all gold :D

The belt is in pieces for now, just needs to be assembled and then that's all done as well. Gonna use a thin strip of gold ribbon/bias and velcro each end, then glue all the plates/buckle onto it. Lazy lazy~

The tiara has been cut out of the thick foam too, gonna add thin foam detailing and then spray, gonna cast the main red/pink jewel out of resin and glue it on after. Got some white foam for the wing bits too :D not sure how I'm gonna get the tiara to actually stay on though, it's not exactly like a normal tiara :/

Oh and I got sick of trying to make gloves, so I'll be buying some soon too.

Soooo... (Posted 14th July 2010)

I sewed the zip in last night and, in short, it's a bit too small... D: even though I measured properly.
So I'm gonna have to wear a corset under it and hope for the best >.< either way I'm gonna need help getting in and out of it.

Booooo...

Still need to get the rest of the stuff done now

More! (Posted 16th June 2010)

Hokay so now all the lining is cut out, most of the stuff has been sewn together, just need to make the petticoat stuffs and build it into the dress before combining it with the lining, then it's just hemming and adding the zip. Oh and the blue zigzag design on the bottom! :D photos later today!

Progress (Posted 16th June 2010)

Finally getting on with it, had a bit of a dry-patch in terms of wanting to sew XD

Anyways the tabbard is now done, little annoyed that upon finishing it only then did I notice that the top part is wonky D: oh well
I cut out nearly all the dress pieces today, just need to alter the top half before sewing it together. I also need to buy some netting tomorrow to make my petticoat as well as a proper glove pattern >.< I can make gloves fine if it's stretchy fabric but since I'm using duchess satin for all of Zelda (and Serenade) I want the gloves to match. So glove pattern it is so I don't waste fabric!
Gonna work on various methods for the belt/chestplate/tiara as I've had too many ideas on how to make them, will have to be trial and error ^^;
