|Time Taken :||4 months|
|This costume was one that I was initially a little concerned about how I would achieve the desired look. This would be both my first experience using flase ears ans the use of spirit gum, alongside my first time using bodypaint in a cosplay, so I felt that this project was allowing me to challenge and improve my skills as well as cosplaying one of my favourite characters from the Legend of Zelda. |
After finding the correct shade of purple twill for the main tunic, the rest of the costume was made fairly quickly. The sandals in particular caused problems, as they snapped on a trial run of the cosplay and had to be re repaired. I later found out that this was due to the paint on the sandals being too thick, which impaired the flexibility the sandals required to be able to walk in them.
The wig and elf ears were bought. The sandals were modified Gladiator sandals. Everything else was made from sratch.
Overall, I found that this project has been really rewarding, as I love the cosplay and think that I have learned a great deal from making this costume.
That's why it will probably never be retired, either.
