Costume Information


Believe it or not i used to like The legend of Zelda when i was younger, instead of being the girly girl playing with dolls i was off playing in the mud, having fights and playing video games XDD

That aside the first Video game i played of Zelda was The legend of zelda: Ocarina of time for the game cube and loved it with a passion which led to me playing them up to Twilight Princess so when i got to cosplay Zelda i jumped straight too it :3

The most challenging part i think will be the patten on the skirt which will be a lot off painting or embroidery

You look fab in that wig. Seriously, you're so pretty with that make-up and wig (and just in general of course). Sorry if I sound like a total creep (which I am, no use pretending otherwise, lol) but it's just the truth. Cannot wait to see the armour and accessories for this. Makes me wanna actually do a Link costume that isn't an oversized t-shirt and my mum's boots.

To-Do List

Head dress HighIn Progress
Add details to Armor HighPlanned
Make mock-up of shoulder armor LowPlanned
Make master copy [after mock-up] LowPlanned


Wig. (Posted 17th October 2011)

So the last wig i bought wasn't near as long enough for zelda and to have a plait but into it >_< so i had to invest in a new longer 51 inch one..or rather two, why two? Well, Zelda has never natural looking hair, so i bought a blonde and brown/copper wig to sew blonde bits into, it came out fairly fine just not as thick enough as i expected!

ARMOUR GO (Posted 5th October 2011)

Working on Armour is a very slow process, everything needs to be the right size and the slightest mistakes make it look wrong.

1.So far i've almost got the shoulder amour done [just need to finish the detailing]

2. I've managed to get 2 wigs ordered to weave together [brown/blonde]

3. Finished the headdress, just needs put together when wigs get here.

4. Last night i managed to make the armored bits that lay against the dress!

Gunna really have to get my arse into gear! Progress will be put up too. :3

Skirt wip (Posted 16th September 2011)

Since i haven&amp;#039;t took progress photos or even photos i took this off the skirt.

it doesn't look poofey yet because i haven't finished the petite coat to go under yet!
Its not finished yet but its only got a few more things to do on it before its done :3

Also my mannequin is a dress size if not two bigger than me on its lowest setting so i had to sqeeeeze the dress on it which is why it looks so unfitted

Ears (Posted 5th August 2011)

Latex ears i got for both zelda and Msyu :D

Sword Progress (Posted 15th July 2011)

Carved this out of wood and sanded it!

WHY DO I DO THIS? >| (Posted 23rd March 2011)

I've already started this? >8[
I really should stop staring cosplays for oct before i even get though the ones for may >|
I've ordered some things for the amour and the head piece. Waiting to get money for the wig and ears [which i should do after may]

All in all i've made a start for sure, no going back now!
