Information

Because Devil_Trigger uploaded Link, I felt the need to upload Zelda.

I have loved this design since the artwork was first released so making it will make me very happy!

Even though it's a bit messy, I'm really proud of the wig. Somehow by the power of tiny elastics and sewn up ribbon tubes, the ribbon decals somehow manage to stay put! For a more detailed description of what I did, please don't hesitate to ask ^^
Dress is a thick cotton jersey, with bias binding detail.
Sailcloth and tabard are canvas with the pattern made with felt (blue bias for the edges of the tabard)
Brown belt is pleather, with a milliput clasp. For the 3d effect, I folded over the edges and stuffed them with toy stuffing. Bias binding for the yellow detail. I really like bias binding okay XD
Gold belt is a string of buttons on elastic, with milliput discs for detail.

I'm pretty chuffed with how this has all turned out. It's very comfy to wear, even though the sailcloth is a little restrictive!

Mancester Expo: Having worn this at Manchester, I'm even more happy with it! Everyone had nice things to say, and I was beyond comfy (despite being unable to move my upper arms). Gonna repaint the gold belt and restyle the wig though, as both got a bit mussed up XD

Gemucon 2013: I'll be wearing this again, with the aforementioned fixing :)

There is going to be a Skyward Sword group at May, but what with exams and coursework I may not be able to finish in time XD

Progress Journal

15th July 2012

Almost done

Belts have been painted and varnished, and patterns have been painted onto the bracelets.
Will be styling the wig either tomorrow or wednesday! I need to buy some mini elastics as I think the kitten has eaten the few I had left

28th May 2012

Progress

Ploughing through all the detail on the dress.
Brown belt pretty much done, just need to paint the clasp

Thought I would put up a picture of what I'd done. I did try to take a picture of it all on, but the lack of a full length mirror put an end to that plan

20th May 2012

Base dress and brown belt pretty much done

Have sewed and hemmed the base dress, ready to add all the details
The brown belt is almost done, just need to paint the buckle.

19th May 2012

Progress

Have pretty much everything underway now. All I have left to buy is all of the yellow-gold bias binding and some pink and teal ribbons for my hair. Oh and a big blue gem for the dress.

I'm really happy with it so far, despite my hands being inordinately sore from the leather for the belt and tassle.

14th May 2012

Sailcloth

The sailcloth is almost finished, though I need to put the Skyloft symbol on it :) It's made from canvas.
Pics of me with it on, and when it's laid out flat. I made it so it would look somewhat like a functioning sailcloth when it's not being worn.

18th April 2012

So it begins!

Bought some blue canvas for the tabard thingy today, along with some blue biad binding.
Also cut the bangs into my wig, so I'm ready to do the styling at a later date. Wearing mah ears in the picture

30th March 2012

Wig

It arrived the other day but I was away.
It's a bit lighter than I expected but it'll work just fine for this and for a fair number of other Zelda variants!
Pics once I've cut it/got mum to help
