View Full Version : Tetra Cosplay
02-11-2011, 10:54 PM
So, for an upcoming convention I'm planning to cosplay as Tetra from Wind Waker. :)
I don't need a wig because I have naturally blonde hair *Although I dyed it brown for the picture you see to the left*, but I DO need some realistic looking elf ears to pull it off.
First off, I was wondering if anyone knows where I can purchase some for cheap, or possibly make some.
I'm also wondering about her bandana/scarf. Where could I get a plain red scarf?
GAH, thanks for your help!!! ^^;

There are nice ones at costume stores (If there's one near you) for a pretty low cost. Some like these: http://www.partycity.com/product/elf+ears.do?sortby=ourPicks&size=all&from=Search&navSet=ears are nice and go with the Wind Waker style of ears. (Pointy, but not too long.)
As for the scarf, I'd just buy some red fabric and cut it into the shape of a bandana. It works the same as a bandana. Just flod it in half and tie it around your neck to get the same look.

I would actually recommend http://www.aradanicostumes.com/elfears.php, you have a more diverse section, and a lot of them look pretty close for Hylian ears depending what style you need.

Haha I'm cosplaying Tetra for Otakon this weekend.
I'd also recommend aradani. I was going to get some from there but I'm too cheap for the silicone ear tips and I have a latex allergy. But my friends have some ears from there and they look lovely.
As for a red bandanna, I tried looking and I couldn't find one. I just made it myself. All you need to do is figure out how long you want it to be. I measured mine to a bandanna that I already had that was the perfect size. Then I did a rolled hem all the way around. I used a blind hem stitch since I was experimenting but you can easily do a basic running stitch all the way around. In terms of fabric, I really just chose a a really cheap cotton. I got two yards so I can make the sash in the same fabric.
