Information

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!

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 16th 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?!
