Hyrule's Pensive Princess by akuriko Hyrule's Pensive Princess by akuriko
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

Really nice work! And if I could make a request, It would be cool to see you do some Samus stuff!

akuriko Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012
I can move pretty well, I just can't raise my arms above the height of my shoulders, and moving my neck a lot causes the wig to tangle in the back, so I try to avoid as much neck movement as possible. =)

I know that problem very well. Especially that problems with raise the arms coz of the imense weight of the long medieval sleeves.;-) I had that problem with my medieval wedding dress.

Seeing your picture I thought "It's so sweet." The light gives a melancholic atmosphere and makes you even more beautiful. Your costume is also magnificent. You'd think the true princess.

How do you make all these costumes? Do you make and sell them by any chance? Not necessarily the ones you display on this site, but others, I mean.

I just make things in my spare time. ^ ^ Cosplaying from Zelda is a lot of fun for me, so that ends up being what I do the most. Sometimes I take costume commissions, but it's pretty rare.

How'd you make the armour and the belt? I know people use play foam, but~ :0

Thanks! The belt is a combination of model magic and sculpey and the armor is a craft foam base backed with wireform with model magic for the details coated with fiberglass resin and painted gold. =)

this may sound odd but one of my favorite parts about this costume is the two pieces of wrapped hair they are the perfect length and size and they just fall so perfectly and curve in all the correct places...lol but of course i love everything about this cosplay! *^_^*
