View Full Version : Adult Midna Cosplay

Ok, I've finally done it--I'm breaking down and cosplaying her--next year--2010. But it's mostly to match my friend's group whose been cosplaying TP Zelda characters for the last two years and since they don't have a Midna, I figured I'd give it a shot.

I have pretty much everything for her costume figured out--but the thing is.... I'm trying to make it as "realistic" as possible. I don't want it to look like all those other costumes out there. I'm making the actual belt--with the triangular shapes and all, the anklet that's properly sized and all the designs and gradations in the fabric the way it's supposed to be.

I've got MOST of it figured out... except for one small problem--the belt. Or snake, or whatever the heck you wanna call it.

When I first started working on it, I was using clay--and I'd kind of still like to go that path because the kind I'm using can stand up to the torture of a cosplay. But I had to stop half way through because I realzised, if I make it out of clay--even individual "beads" I have no way of attaching it to my waist without losing the proper shape of the curves and such in the belt. So then I went on to thinking I could use the fun foam stuff for a base and then glue the individual pieces to that and that way it would keep it's shape.

Problem solved, right? Wrong. Because then I hit another snag: Now it wasn't flexible enough to fit around my waist or be removed easily.

So here's my dilemma: I have no way of using a "solid" material to make the triangular beads, WHILE keeping the shape of the design of the belt, WHILE making it flexible enough to be removed easily!

Does anyone have any suggestions? -_-

You might get a lot of help in the Zelda thread in the video game cosplay forums. Other Midna cosplayers might be able to help you out. :)

Yeah and I realized I'm a freaking retard because I posted this in the anime/manga section instead of video games, so if someone can move this there that would be great >.<

Or just delete it >.<
