Costume Information

I used to hate Saria the first time I played OoT. I found her really annoying for some reason.
Now that I've replayed the game (in glorious 3D), I seem to have developed a fondness for her character, and really want to cosplay her.
I think it's the green hair. I really really want to try green hair...

*provisionally for may expo* I'm probably going to boil in a polo neck jumper, a playsuit and boots but ah well :)

Aaah thank you guys ^^
And speaking of catchy music, I'm teaching myself Saria's song/Lost Woods theme on the ocarina to play when I wear this ^^

Aww, I love Saria! Felt so bad for her when she ended up being one of the Sages >:
You'll suit her, looking foward to this!

<3 Saria is one of my favourite characters!
/In regards to my ears - they're not actually Hylian ears - they're
actually some cheap 'elf' ears I found in a fancy dress shop
I bought them originally due to lack of time but then rather liked them! XD

Wow, you really suit being Saria! This is very accurate and an amazing cosplay. The photos are great and you look really pretty :) Not a cosplay you see done very often, yet such a fab one!

Finished! (Posted 8th May 2012)

Today I bought spirit gum, a buckle and a swatch of some leafy green fabric :)
I can finally call this cosplay FINISHED! The progress photo is horrendous because I had to try to take it myself without a full-length mirror XD I had to bend really awkwardly to get the whole playsuit into the shot, so it looks like a really wierd fit. I assure you it isn't!

Now to learn Saria's song on the ocarina...

Boots finished (Posted 6th May 2012)

Finished the boots last night, and started remaking the belt. Need to get a buckle tomorrow.
Forgot to pack a scrap of playsuit material so may not have belt loops for May :/

Just to prove I'm doing more than losing all of the things (Posted 2nd May 2012)

I painted the traingle onto my ocarina to make it look like Saria's(see pic) Not sure how the clay is taking to the nail polish (green pain didnt work), may do another coat.

Also cut a strip of fabric to start working on the belt again, but sewing will have to wait until my coursework is done. I should probably be doing that rather than posting on CI really XD

all of my creys (Posted 29th April 2012)

I've lost my belt so I have to make another one. Also thought I'd lost my jumper, but mum found that this morning and is going to post it to me.
This costume keeps escaping :c

Playsuit (Posted 2nd April 2012)

is underway~
It currently looks like an A-line dress, but it won't soon 8D

Ears (Posted 31st March 2012)

Bought some cheap ears today. They're not amazing, but they'll serve their purpose once I've got some spirit gum

Welp (Posted 9th January 2012)

I forgot how much I hate sewing onto shoes MY HANDS HURT AND MY FINGERS ARE RIPPED TO SHREDS :C
However, I am happy with what I've achieved so far c:

Belt (Posted 2nd January 2012)

Quickly shoved together a belt during my breaks from revision today. It still needs eyelets, but I'll do those when I finish my Popuri corset
I made it from the same material I used to cover the hairband and what I will cover the boots in~

Wig and hairband (Posted 1st January 2012)

My wig arrived today, will post pictures when I've styled it! It's such a beautiful shade of green ^^
Also bought a hairband, though I may cover it in whatever fabric I cover the boots in as it doenst show up against the wig as much as I would like...

EDIT The wig is now styled, I covered the hairband and took a photo. Credit to mum for saving the disaster I made. Also ignore my makeupless face and my terrified expression... the flash on the camera made me jump >.<

ah has a jumper (Posted 19th October 2011)

Found a ribbed green polo neck jumper in primark yesterday ^^
It's not as ribby as Saria's but it's the best I'm gonna find in my budget

Playsuit fabric (Posted 1st August 2011)

I found this today and just HAD to have it for Saria's playsuit. I really love the leaf pattern on it, and it was cheap!
