How did you style the wig? It's perfect!

Thank you. ^ ^ It was pretty tough. XD it involved a lot of sewing wefts, about 16 hours worth. XD; Also some yarn and foamcore. wig fiber alone can't fill out the earlocks or ponyholder well enough at all heh.

Arisa-Kiwi Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2011
I figured as much for the fiber. It's just that your Zelda is amazing and I couldn't help but ask how you did it. Particularly the front of the wig with the bandaged ponytails.

Thanks for the help.

A very nice Zelda'play. I think I actually saw you at Otakon this past year...if you were there xP Did you do a lot of fabric paint on this? It looks so immaculate.

Thank you! ^ ^ I was at Otakon this year, but I didn't bring this costume. ^ ^; actually, I only used fabric paint on the small zigzag on the glove tops. Everything else is embroidered. ^ ^

Wow, even the light grey emblem on your forearm? Stellar work. I'm not sure how on earth you did all of that embroidery. Straight out of Lesage in Paris! On the front flap as well?!

akuriko Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011
Yes hehe. And thank you. ^ ^ the tabard is actually appliqué, but it's still a very similar process.

Clinkorz Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011  Student General Artist
Beautiful~ So you embrodiered the edges, in essence, and while doing that sewed it to the plain fabric? I'm sorry I'm so prying...I enjoy cosplay and am in Fashion Design here in College...so new ways of doing things always interest me~
Reply
:iconakuriko:
akuriko Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011
Thank you. ^ ^ The glyphs on the bodice were hand-embroidered, the designs on the gloves and bottom of the skirt were machine embroidered (darned, actually, which requires a lot more focus and skill than just plugging an image into an embroidery machine lol) and the tabard and dress trim were appliquéd with the edges satin stitched down. =)

My goodness. Satin stitching takes soooo much time!!! Well, I truly applaud your efforts. If I ever have the pleasure of meeting you, I will most assuredly bring cupcakes lol. I wish I had the focus you do~ While I spend time on my costumes, it seems nearly incomparable to your efforts.

This is an odd question but with all these photos I really LOVE your eyebrows, and I'm wondering what you used for them.

akuriko Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2011
Thank you haha. XD I just looked at a referenced and shaped my eyebrows to look like hers. My eyebrows are much darker than hers, so I covered them with concealer and traced over them with a blonde make up pencil. =)

Definitely the best Zelda I've ever seen in my life. Quick question: What material did you use for the armor? It looks so perfect! And about how long did it take you to make this?

Thank you! My pauldrons are craftfoam and model magic coated with fiberglass resin. The whole costume took me one year and four months to complete.
