Costume Information

Description
Gawd, I love Zelda games so much, I don't even know -how- I've gone this long without cosplaying a character from the series.

Initially, I've always wanted to do Shiek from OOT since I've loved that costume since I can remember and I've always been impressed/inspired by others that have pulled her(him?) off. I've been put off by the fact that because of my tan I look terrible in a blonde wig that and I certainly don't have the figure, so very pear shaped!

However! Twilight princess came along with a stunning character costume for Zelda and with hair not so blonde! <3

To be honest... I'm not even sure if I'm going to be able to get this done for Kita since I'm starting to realise what a huge as project this will be and I'm not even sure if it's within my skill range. But if I don't get it done in time I'll still definitely persist to do it at another con since it really is a costume I've wanted to for such a long time!

...the 18th of March journal made me lol. Of COURSE that's what the gems true form is! Pretty much I need to carry around an internets stamp that says 'u so talented', your progress is looking strong already. And damn you're prolific.

Sloooow progress.. (Posted 18th March 2012)

..is slow. Armor nearly ready to be prepped for paint. c:

Armor progress... (Posted 18th March 2012)

..Ok I'm so RUBBISH at this kind of stuff. XD; This literally took forever to figure out and there were two of us trying! So this is the final shape that's been put together as a rough hopefully when I cut it out of foam and form it a bit it'll look less... yeah. Anyway progress is progress right? :D

Gems. (Posted 18th March 2012)

So I've managed to find these so far for her armor, I would of preffered to have made my own but to be honest I just dont have the time right now! I think when I rewear this I'll more then likely revamp bits of the costume I think can be improved! Still waiting on a couple more jewels to come through the post, Also still looking for a circular one about 30mm in diameter that isnt going to be shipped from china! Guh, I think I may of sourced one that will work instead but I'm still holding out for better. :)

The skirt needs ....work. o: (Posted 18th March 2012)

So now its time to put pleats in... going to try this sometime today. Photos of the front portion of the skirt layed out. That's a lot of satin there. DX

It's a start... (Posted 15th March 2012)

So I've cut out my skirt pieces and sewn them together...a process made slower because I'm a moron and sewed the wrong pieces together! So after carefully unpicking it all and resewing, I've got a skirt that's correct! Still need to put the correct pleates in position from what I can tell from my ref there's either 6 or 8 of them. I think I'll just have to see what works best proportionally, as I need space for the crests on each panel. Hrrm.

Also brought a ton of blue jewely things, guh....costing more money then I wish to admit. XD Why is this hobby so expensive?!
