|This is my Lolita Link cosplay that I did. Believe it or not, this is my first cosplay, and even my first costume, though not my first sewing project.|
I designed and created my entire outfit myself, spending way too much time on it and procrastinating regularly.
The outfit consists of the dress, which has three layers of beading and a six layered skirt, the jacket, with the hylian symbol hand-beaded on the back, the hat, the garters, (which unfortunately cannot be seen), and the awesome sword-and-shield parasol.
The boots, leggings, and purse were purchased to go with the outfit, and I stole the cords from the boots to lace up my bodice.
This was done at my first anime convention, Kumoricon 2011, by a professional photographer that was there. He was a blast to work with. for an anime convention it was rather small but it was very enjoyable as well.
I will likely end up remaking this at some point as my corset didn't turn out as I wished.
