Castle Gardens by akuriko Castle Gardens by akuriko
Hey guys~ It's been quite a while. Thought I'd upload another photo from this set. ^ ^ This is one of few really great full-body shots of this costume. :3 These were taken on Sunday of Acen at the Chicago Botanic Gardens, about 20 minutes away from the convention center.

TP Princess Zelda costume made/worn by me.

You have to be the best Zelda cosplayer I've seen! :heart:

I'd love to know how you made the elf ears and what the shoulder armor is made out of?

I just can't get over how amazing this is ^^

Thank you! ^ ^ My ears I bought from aradanicostumes.com , though pretty soon I am going to have to learn to make them myself haha. The pauldrons are made with a craft foam base, model magic for the details, and coated with fiberglass resin, then painted. ^ ^

This is a really amazing costume! Are you wearing a hoop skirt or crinoline for the skirt to be so full? It looks stunning!

Little over a year old? Nonsense. I'm stunned at the detail of, well, the entire costume. I can't even fathom how long it must have taken you to get this done. This "gardens shot" looks amazing, and the sky played well with the part. You look elegant - you make quite a Zelda indeed.
