Guardian of the Triforce by akuriko Guardian of the Triforce by akuriko
Alright, I had to upload this one because it's my very favorite! <3 I didn't even think the pose would turn out because of the slight restriction of the pauldrons. I'm very pleased with how natural it ended up looking! ^ ^ Photo by my dearest :iconxrikku-chanx:!

If you have a question about how I made this costume, please visit the FAQ before asking. Thanks. [link]

This is probably one of the best Zelda cosplays I've seen, the whole thing looks like it was taken straight from Twilight Princess! The background and pose are perfect, even the lighting is immaculate. You just need a ball of light or something in your palm to finish the look!

This one is my favorite too. It shows lots of Zelda-ish features, other than you. The background actually looks like a place Zelda would be in a portrait.

Wow, incredible! I know I'm probably just parroting what many others have said already, but you look fantastic as Zelda! The costume is really well designed, you were very faithful to it! If I didn't know better, I'd think I was looking at a 3D model from a next gen Zelda game =)

You just gave me a heart Attack.

THIS IS AMAZING!!! YOU LOOK EXACTLY LIKE HER!

It's official. You and you alone can pull Zelda. In fact when I saw this at first saw this I thought Zelda was real for a moment. You're that good.

Keep up the great work.

The three goddess gave you a gift ^_^

I can see how the pauldrons might cause a problem, but all things considered, you're right about it turning out well anyway.

It took me a while to decide which one was my favorite, but I definitely had to favorite such a great Zelda costume. Great work with all of them. I love the colors, especially your selective use of blue that really brings out your eyes. Gorgeous.
