Zelda - Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword




It's been too long since I last did a Legend of Zelda cosplay and I have the week before Minami off so I have no excuse not to pull something together in time XD

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

The progress looks amazing so far! I can't wait to see it completed :D

This looks INCREDIBLE so far! Doing all that bias is a pain in the butt isn't it? I used the same technique but yours looks so much better than mine! Can;t wait to see pics of it when it;s complete!

Impressed with how quick you managed to put this together (bet it was stressful though)

Wow, could you be any more adorable? Especially love the photo of you from above where you're kneeling on the floor. You look so sweet and innocent. (The colour of the dress looks so pretty on you!)

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)

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~

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

Dress bias 3

Bottom hemline complete~

27th February 2013

All together now!

All the bits so far (minus sailcloth)~ Going to try and find some white leggings in town tomorrow. Need to get more paint for the big buckle as the one I was gonna use has gone funny then just got to put a clasp on it. Medallion and cloth belts are both complete. Dress has been taken up and the first line of bias designs have been added along the bottom hem. Need to add the second line of bias on the bottom hem, take it in at the underarms, make the sleeves and add bias to collar and sleeves. Wig still needs trimming and styling too, want it to stay in place properly without the ribbons falling out but also don't want to put products in it so I can reuse it for other stuff :/

Dress bias 2

Bottom hem of the dress, 1 of 30. ...Remind me again why the hell I thought this would be a good idea? XD

27th February 2013

Dress bias...

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... 5 down, another 25 to go...

Medallion belt

Medallion belt all painted and assembled~

26th February 2013

Belt progress 3

All the pieces for the medallion belt and the buckle for the cloth paint, all made of Worbla~

26th February 2013

Dress base

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

Hmm still quite messy but not too bothered, needs a good going over with an iron. Just procrastinating on starting the dress...

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

24th February 2013

Belt progress

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)

23rd February 2013


So I bought all the fabric yesterday and my Coscraft wig came this morning LET'S DO THIS
