Ganondorf - The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

Complete

Amecon 2012

Information

This has been a dream of mine for ages and I'm really glad I finally got to wear it!

The costume itself was a commission, but there had to be a lot of modifications carried out (as is always the case!).

The swords were made by InYourDreamsFX.

The wig was styled by Monkey.

I am so pleased that people liked this costume on me. I very almost didnt leave my room but Leonie Heartilly convinced me that I looked good and if it wasn't for her, I would never have worn it.

Thank you everyone involved who made this possible!

I love this version of Ganon! You need to do this! :D (I'm gonna be Link in October expo, would be epic to have a Ganon there if you don't have much else planned?)

sjbonnar posted on 24 May, 2011 - 22:29
I...might well be tempted though I dunno if I'll be at October Expo as Fushicon is very close to that date!

Looking awesome. Good use of Milliput (I'm a massive fan of that stuff!) And the swords look really cute (even though I probably shouldn't call them cute ^_^;)

sjbonnar posted on 8 August, 2012 - 11:03
Thank you! Though it's taking ages to dry! Aww, they're kinda cartoony so it's acceptable LOL (though never call a guy's sword cute ;-p)

Rainbow_Panda posted on 8 August, 2012 - 21:49
Awww wow! You will make a good Ganondorf looking good ;)

Pandora-Chi posted on 8 August, 2012 - 22:02

sjbonnar posted on 13 August, 2012 - 22:36
Thank you! I really tried. Shame parts of it fell apart!

Littlegeeky posted on 14 August, 2012 - 11:58
You looked amazing hun! You really looked like the characters, it gave me shivers when you walked through the masquerade (in a good way)

Zelvyne posted on 14 August, 2012 - 12:13

Wow Sean, you make a badass Ganondorf!

Nymphie posted on 15 August, 2012 - 13:40
You should have seen the reaction one of my friends had the minute I pointed you out. There was lots of arm flailing and squealing from both of us, so I think it's safe to say you did an awesome job. :]

Fishyfins posted on 16 August, 2012 - 20:51
Probably the greatest cosplay you have ever done!

sjbonnar posted on 17 August, 2012 - 13:53
Oh man...guys thank you so much! This costume has been a dream of mine pretty much since I played Wind Waker... I was so down on myself about it and...thank you so much for all of the positive reactions!

Leadmill posted on 18 August, 2012 - 11:15
This really suited you Sean, another costume you played to your strengths with and really pulled it off.

HotshotShan posted on 18 August, 2012 - 13:54
Leadmill pretty much summed it up, you look sensational Sean! All that work really paid off, and it shows!

sjbonnar posted on 19 August, 2012 - 19:27
Cheers Matt, that really means a lot to me. And thank you too Soph *hugs*

Leonie Heartilly posted on 21 August, 2012 - 23:32
Glad I was able to get you out the room in it ;)

Like I said, I'm not familiar with the source material but I can see from the references you suit him really well and did a great job.

Manga Girl posted on 26 August, 2012 - 21:56

Koume and Kotake

Ganondorf's swords! I didn't make these AT ALL LOL Made by In Your Dreams FX.

These are fully LARP-safe swords made from foam and latex. All I've done is a bit of edging work on the ribbons as they were rushed (my fault as it was a late order!) and will be replaced at a later date! ^_^

SO FUN TO PLAY WITH!

6th August 2012

Sleeve detailing

Didn't make the main costume, it was commissioned but I did have to improve a lot of the detailing on it (as is almost ALWAYS the case with overseas commissions!)

Really happy with it though!

Forehead Jewel

This one is also made from three layers of milliput, an epoxy resin I have NEVER used before LOL

It was a bit scary as was starting to go tacky/solidifying as I was finishing but it got done! I've also built a chain into it so I'm hoping it's strong enough to withstand that!
