Description
I chose Midna because she's an interesting character as at first you despise her but then you rely on her.
I would say the hardest part was actually the catsuit as I previously tried painting white onto black<--- super tricky to get even coverage. This is what I then went onto do:~~

Black Spandex catsuit with a chopped off leg and belly. This was worn over a white catsuit so no paint was needed for the leg or body. Also black spandex gloves which reach past the elbow which were then painted with appropriate patterns using teal metallic fabric paint.
I made the wig out of wool because I was totally skint. This is a fairly good option if you are on a budget but I later bought a wig which looks so much better.
The head piece was made from camping mat foam which was then papermache'd and painted. This kind of made it stable yet still lightweight.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This was interesting to wear depending on the temperature as the headpiece would give migraines even though it was light but I'm sure the one eye'd sight had something to do with that. I also wore this in October, as you can imagine I froze. This is a good summer costume although you can never really rely on English weather forecasts.
