I came across this photo recently and was surprised that I hadn't uploaded it yet lol. This photo was taken at the Chicago Botanic Gardens on the Sunday of Acen 2010. I'm hoping to revive this costume in the next couple months, hopefully at Fanime. :3

Costume made and modeled by me.

Is there a translation for the runes?  I've been looking through the Hyrule Historia but I cant find any matches at all.

It looks perfect though, the dress :D

I don't think it's a "known" form of Hylian. The symbols do not have any meaning in any of the Hylian alphabets we've been given so far in a game, though I'd be willing to bet that if they said anything it would be along the lines of "Hyrule", "Nayru", or "Hylia".

I think it's like super ancient Hylian. I just copied what I saw in pictures. The character designer did make notes on the concept art that it was Hylian writing. that's really all I know about it lol. The strange thing is that one side is mirrored from the other, so if you could actually read it, it would be backward on one side? I dunno it's weird lol.

This cosplay is absolutely stunning.  It's as though I am looking at a promo photograph for a big-budget Legend of Zelda movie. You would be perfect for the part...assuming you could act. :D
