Sacred Spring by akuriko Sacred Spring by akuriko
Hooray~ Finally a full-body shot of my Skyward Sword Zelda costume. :D Sadly, the weather at Acen was absolutely atrocious, and while I did get some outdoor shots, I probably won't be getting them back for months, and months, and months... *sigh* I won't have a chance to do any more outdoor sunny shoots for this costume for at least another month, so convention shots will have to do for the time being. =) This photo was taken late saturday night of Acen right in front of the con center. The blue lighting makes my greens look super pastel haha~ Anyway, I will be posting more photos from the con as I receive them. =)

Costume made and worn by me.

Wow, I love this~! ♥♥ I'm planning on cosplaying as Skyward Sword Zelda soon as well (my first cosplay~!). I was just wondering, if you don't mind my asking - How did you make her gold belt?

I just adore your Zelda cosplay! May I ask, how did you do the boots and the jewel?

Thanks! The gem I cast from epoxy resin and used epoxy adhesive to glue it to the dress. For the boots, I sewed up some bootcovers out of leather and glued them to some shoes I found at the thrift store.

Your Zelda cosplays are just so SPOT ON <3 I absolutely must ask how on earth you did the gold/yellow patterned trim on the sleeves and hem of the dress? It looks absolutely flawless and perfect!

You do a really god job cosplaying less serious Zeldas (Toon, Skyward). Not to say your more serious Zelda(s) (Twilight princess) Isn't good, it is great. It's just you have such a bright Vibrant face that adds such cute smiles tha tit really plays to the more child like Zeldas. Keep up the good work!

I'm a big fan of your zelda cosplays. I love this zelda and was thinking about cosplaying as her. It would be my first cosplay, and I was wondering if you could help me out. I don't know what to do about the blue gem. I can't find one anywhere. I also was wondering how I could pull off the belt with the little gold disks. I'm sorry if I sound annoying, but would you help me, and give some advice?

Hello! I'm not akuriko but I'm a Zelda cosplayer as well! What I did I went to my local arts and crafts store and looked around the jewelry area, sometimes they sell sort-of vintage/steam punk charms for your jewelry, i found a regular square shaped blue diamond, i bought it and just painted the edges golden and just paste it on my dress. (Of course i flipped the gem so that way it turned into a diamond shaped.)

The way I did the belts was just use regular foami and just painted it gold. Hopefully I helped you a bit! I have a few pictures of me in my cosplay if you're in doubt. If you have any more questions feel free to ask them! ^^

I cast the circles from poly urethane resin, drilled holes in them and linked them with gold wire. =)

:XD: After getting a better look at her I found her to be quite lovely!
I think that what put a lot of people off was that her hairstyle mainly was so different from the other Zeldas. :)

it fit this Zelda because she was neither a princess or a queen. It works because of this

This is the best Skyward Sword Zelda cosplay I have seen so far!
Can I ask what kind of contacts you're wearing and how you made the gold belt? >.<
Reply
:iconakuriko:
akuriko Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2012
Thanks! Mine are the Blue 2 contacts from colorlens4less [link] My gold belt I made a model from craft foam and model magic and molded and casted it several times. Then I drilled holes in each and connected them with 16 gauge wire.
