Here's my Saria costume which I just finished and debuted at OhayoCon last weekend!
This cosplay was quite fun~ Simple, but definitely had it's challenges. First of all, every color of green you see on this costume was custom created by me. I had to dye EVERYTHING, because I couldn't find my materials in the correct colors and I'm a perfectionist. XD; The most challenging part was getting many different materials to match basically the same two shades of green.
This was my first time dyeing a wig! It took me two tries to get it right, and if it weren't for *FireLilyCosplay

, I don't think I would've gotten it at all! XD; It was also my first time patterning and sewing shorts! I was very proud to find that I didn't have to do much tailoring for the tunic. I just sewed it up, put it on, and it fit! XD
The boots and belt are made from 100% leather, and the base soles were taken from some black boots I got from a thrift store. The turtleneck I bought from Chadwick's, and was originally ivory. The headband was just a headband I bought from the store and covered in the same fabric as the tunic, and dyed it to match the turtleneck, belt, and boots.
The Fairy Ocarina I made myself out of Sculpey III. It does play, but not in tune. I think I might try making a new one that does play in tune this weekend or next week. :3
Can't wait until Spring to get a proper forest shoot! X33
