|Cost :||Around £50|
|Time Taken :||One Week|
|Link is my favourite character, and one of the reasons I began cosplaying.|
I intend to cosplay, most, if not all, variations of him in time.
This was my first ever costume and was completely hand-sewn. Now that I feel my skills have improved I want to make this again, so will be re-making everything (minus the props) for MCM Expo, Oct 2012.
Previously worn at:
- Replay Expo; 05-06/11/2011
- DokiDoki Festival; 13/11/2011

Boot Covers and Shizz! (Posted 24th October 2011)
Just to prove I'm still doing something xD
I've also made myself a new pair of gloves and I'm waiting on fabric for my tunic.
Re-Makes and Progress (Posted 3rd October 2011)
So quite a few updates on this now.
I've also finally ordered my chain rings so fingers crossed I'll have that done soon too (as I'm only doing the visible parts to save rupees). In time I'd like to make a full chainmail shirt, but we'll see what happens. Up to this point I've been using a fabric alternative which I found in a shop, and although it looks decent I'll be glad to get rid of it!
Anyway, I gave in and bought a proper compression shirt which arrived this morning and I've been working on make-up so I'm hoping to fool a few people next time I cosplay!
Last update is that I'll be re-making a majority of the costume, starting with the tunic and hat!
Updated: Wig and Ears. (Posted 8th August 2011)
The wig I had originally intended to use for this cosplay finally turned up and with a little styling all will be well one again.
As well as my new wig I also bought some new ears, or ear tips to be presise. The ones I had were awful and huge, not to mention uncomfortable, the new ones are already looking a lot better. I'll have some photos up for you soon!
On a side note I've decided to embroider the design on the tunic that was originally done in fabric pen, as it'll look much better this way, but since I'm doing it by hand it may take some time. Wish me luck!
Gauntlet + Details (Posted 5th August 2011)
I finally got round to adding the details to my hat and tunic. I love the crosses on the tunic and I hope to, at some point, stitch over the designs I drew on the bottom of it.
Today I finished the gauntlet as well, it's the first thing I've ever made from scratch and I'm immensely proud of it, plus this means that (aside from large props) my costume is nearly complete! I'm just missing the chainmail, which I intend to tackle next.
Wish me luck!
