Costumes made by me. :)

Yeah okay so the title is boring, what of it? :P This shot was taken by my friend who did a really awesome photoshoot of my two costumes. This one was one of my favorites because it showed off the makeup designs and it's one of the few shots where you can see some of the armor up close.

It was actually raining during out photoshoot, which was great for lighting, but I was so afraid our makeup would run. We had no issues though except for a giant water droplet landing right in my eye. :P

Costume Details:

Zelda: The dress is a pattern I put together myself and is made from an ivory dutchess satin fabric. The top is made out of a purple taffeta and was embroidered by hand. The designs on the dress and gloves were all machine embroidered. I spent hours and hours pinning and sewing gold ribbons on the bottom of the dress.The front panel is a silk taffeta. After reading a few tutorials about ombre dyeing I decided to give it a shot and was pleased with my first attempt. I spent two months embroidering the panel designs by hand.

The armor was crafted with fun foam and then Wonderflex was added over the foam. The crown has been redone. I made the base out of fun foam and added a layer of wonderflex over the foam. I then used model magic to create the small details on the front and on the leaves. The jewels were all made of resin (except the drop prisms, I bought those). The prism gem for the crown was probably the most complex gem to make. I sculpted the prism shape from paperclay and a mold was made from the sculpture for the resin.

I also redid the wig again... I like the new color, I think it looks more natural for my skin tone. Rather than extensions like the last wig, I decided on foam inserts for the thick braid pieces. This was so much easier to work with and it makes the wig a lot lighter than it was. (Thank goodness!)

Ganondorf: All of his armor pieces are made with a base of fun foam and then covered in wonderflex. Each piece was layered in gesso, sanded, and then hand painted. The pants and shirt are made out of a grey cotton fabric with the black designs appliqued onto them. The armor scarf and wrist sleeves were also made out of cotton and the designs also appliqued. I also remade a new cape for Ganondorf. The cape is made out of a crepe fabric with gold designs appliqued on the back. This is also the first time we have used wig for this Ganondorf costume, but I think it really adds to the character.

I appreciate the interest, but I don't usually loan out my costumes. I would be extremely worried about shipping the armor out, the mail system is not very reliable. I hope you understand. Thanks.

Wow...you've done an amazing right here. :)
Honestly, this is the best Ganondorf cosplay I've ever seen. And Zelda is really close if not the best as well. :D

Yes, the information on how you made the costumes is really interesting. It gives me ideas of how I would be able to make them if I were to ever get around to it.
Again, amazing job! 8D

This cam eout amazing. Love the shot first and foremost. its really a very active living shot. Well done camera man. 

The make up in all the pics look beautiful. Love the design in Zelda's face, it looks absolutely perfect.  Ganon's armor pieces look very cool. The wig is epic. The head second of Ganondorfs costume design is one of my favorite parts and i think you really did it justice in this costume design. 

It was really cool being able to read through your process. Very insightful and gives me ideas on other things that can be done in my own costume designs. thank you for that.

Oh mah goodness! [which I'm sure you get a lot of anyways...]

I love all the effort that you put into this. It's just really amazing, the make up, the armor, the clothing all the tiny little details you put into it is just outstanding! I adore the Legend of Zelda series [it's actually really my favorite series of all time...] and I see a lot of cos-plays...[and I know it's mean of me to judge them like I do but I can't help it...] None I've seen thus far have this...well awesome! You did such a great job, just love it <3
