Honestly? I blame the arrival of my Hyrule Historia...

Wig (Posted 28th February 2013)
I've cut the wig now but I'd like to do the hair-down version (Goddess atire) sometime too so I don't wanna use any products in it.
Since I'm not using any gels or sprays to style the wig (will style on the day to keep it neat) I thought I might as well go for some natural looks with the ribbons too. (A) was just an idea that popped into my head but in practice it doesn't look very good, will probably stick with (B)
Buckle (Posted 28th February 2013)
Second attempt at painting the belt buckle (and dress gem)... all of my enamel paint had gone funny and so it all looks a bit crap, oh wells~
Dress (Posted 28th February 2013)
Woooooo! It's not fantastic and the appliqué along the top and sleeves is SO shitty, but it's done so who cares! :D
Just waiting for the "gem" to finish drying and then it can just slot into the little bias diamond and shouldn't fall out
All together now! (Posted 27th February 2013)
All the bits so far (minus sailcloth)~
Going to try and find some white leggings in town tomorrow.
Dress bias 2 (Posted 27th February 2013)
Bottom hem of the dress, 1 of 30.
...Remind me again why the hell I thought this would be a good idea? XD
Dress bias... (Posted 27th February 2013)
Can't be arsed doing proper points for all the dress bias along the hems, although folding and tack-stitching is taking just about as much time...
Belt progress 3 (Posted 26th February 2013)
All the pieces for the medallion belt and the buckle for the cloth paint, all made of Worbla~
Dress base (Posted 26th February 2013)
Base shape for the dress, need to take it up a tiny bit, add the sleeves and do all the yellow edging
Was going to wear my old OoT Link boots but just discovered that they no longer fit! D: Dilemma
Belt progress 2 (Posted 25th February 2013)
Hmm still quite messy but not too bothered, needs a good going over with an iron.
Just procrastinating on starting the dress...
Sailcloth (Posted 25th February 2013)
The crest is a bit wonky and the fit when I wear it is pretty tight but oh wells, it's not like it's an *actual* part of her costume :P
Belt progress (Posted 24th February 2013)
2 hours in and I've cut out the brown parts for the belt and made the belt cloth thing (it's a little wide but meh)
