Im an ameteur, but not new to zelda cosplay or cosplay for that matter. Ive done a link costume and it was also the first costume I made. Of course I didn't appreciated it well, as I didn't do my research on how to make it well.

Im currently in the process of my fi cosplay and the only thing left for me to do is the cape and the diamond frame. My mom and I are in the process of figuring the cape out, but any tips will be very helpful. The fabric for the cape starts where the pleat is and the center where the clavicle is. The zentai suit will cover the rest from the clavicle up.
Half of the cape is a silk fabric, and the other half is satin for the top and gathered fabric (the thing at the edge. Manly Im not sure how to do the shape without the pleating.

AND OHHH Pinkmin link is here lol. I see you almost everytime at the cherry blossom festival and you finally won. XD.

One last thing is the diamond frame. I'm mainly wondering how to attach it. Amethyst Angel said to hot glue pins, but iM a bit afraid that will tear the zentai suit a bit (its made out of Lycra). I was thinking about stick back Velcro since its strong, but any other good options? The Diamond is resin backed with a blue poster board and the frame will be gold foam.

And oh, if you look on fi there is a really tiny diamond on her fore head. How do I attach that small object to a zentai suit?

But Ive got my diamond stockings, shoes, ordering zentai, made the fi hair helmet, and the dress is sort of done. It needs to be fitted to proportion (the tubing and the top of the dress) once we got the cape together.

Hi I'm new to cosplay but I've been working on a Fi cosplay for over a month now. I still have to alter the dress I found for Fi and in the process of making a mask for her.

I'm both!!! I'm hoping to have Agitha done by this spring, but so far all I've gotten done is a mockup of her headdress. I'm hoping to get to the fabric store next week though!

I'm both. >.> While I have cosplayed before, this will mark my first costume from The Legend of Zelda as well as the first one I'm making by myself. In this case, it's Skyward Sword Zelda. I've always wanted to cosplay Zelda, but most of her dresses have been... well, way too complicated for me to wrap my head around. When SS came out, I saw my chance. 8D

So yeah... the dress itself is almost done. I just need to finish all that nightmarish biasing. It left me scarred the other day that I kind of don't want to look at it until I finish with the lyre I'm making - which is not almost done at this point. >.> All I need to do is gesso, paint, and seal. But other than that, I'm incredibly close to done. All that's left to make is that blue apron thing. >.> And the wig and ears... but I'm too broke for those at the moment. -w-

I'm new to cosplaying Zelda, but definitely not new to the series, hehe. I'm so excited to be cosplaying Zelda's goddess dress from Skyward Sword this fall! It's been a nightmare to plan, but I'm pouring my heart into this thing. I want it to look good, since I have such an attachment to this series.

I usually just lurk around here... but I decided that since I spend so much time researching cosplays I may as well start posting. XD I'm relatively new to cosplay; I dressed up as girl!Link for Halloween two years ago using things I already had and a Nerf sword, haha, and last year I cosplayed Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist at Otakon. The costume was sewn together in a week so it was a little shabby, but it was still pretty fun. ^_^

This year for Otakon my fiance and I are going to cosplay Twilight Princess Link and Zelda together! The TP graphics and outfits are my favorites of all the games so I'm really excited. I've been doing a crapton of research and planning, but most of my cosplay work has to be done in random spare moments between jobs and on weekends. Hopefully this weekend I'll actually be able to go out and buy some materials to get started!

I felt the same way about the biasing and how the costume is less complex compared to other Zelda dresses overall! XD I made the pink Skyward Sword Zelda costume back in January but I want to refine it and make the harp (which I'm still trying to figure out how to go about it...)

Yeah, the dress is simple enough but the biasing is is crazy. XD It was mostly the biasing along the neckline. The rest should be simple enough since it's a essentially a circle (already did the bottom bias) and then two rows of rectangles. I'm just kind of dreading it. X.x

As for the lyre, I was in a pickle about that too. Someone recommended pink foam board insulation, but when I looked for it at Home Depot, they didn't have it. Not in foam board anyways. And what they did have that was similar came in six packs or in way too huge sizes. Then it occured to me that I could just do a lyre on the best kind of budget - the free kind. I settled for something I have in abundance in my garage - cardboard. I drafted a pattern for it, cutout the pieces, and used my handy glue gun to put it all together. It came out pretty messy, but after putting in the counterbalance (which was just some wooden rod that was lying around my house), and gluing the strings in (old wire hangers), I slapped some paper mache on it, and then a thin layer of plaster. The plaster isn't necessary, I suppose, but I have a box already and I figured it would toughen up the paper mache. The result was this (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3169663/). I need to upload some new pics of it, because now it has the carvings in it. Which aren't really carvings. I got two big sheets of craft foam, used my pattern from before and stenciled the loftwing design on them. I then cut the pieces (I used an exacto knife for the etchings), glued the foam on with Elmer's Wood Glue (basically regular white glue on steroids; it's all I have in my house >.> ). After that, I coated the foam with glue, another thin layer of plaster. After that, because it looked a bit unseemly because there were some gaps between foam and body, I used a combination of glue gun glue and wood glue to fix those gaps. Then I gessoed the whole thing and tada (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3172820/). Accuracy wise, it's slightly off, but it looks pretty damn amazing if I do say so myself for something created completely out of things lying around my house. I only spent two dollars on it, and that was for the big craft foam sheets! I'm pretty proud of it; especially since I originally had no intention of making it.

All that's left is to paint it really, but it's on hold at the moment due to the fact I've got a different costume to put together really quickly for this Saturday. X.x

Wow, I think that looks really good, especially for "just lying around the house" stuff :)
I haven't started my lyre yet, but it's on my list of things to do, lol.

It looks pretty good for any prop. Good job!

Lol, thanks guys! The lyre was kind of a flying off of the seat of my pants thing. I really did have no intention of making it, so now I'm kind of glad I did - especially seeing how most scenes in SS, Zelda tends to have the lyre. XP

Yes, I agree it looks very nice! :D I love how you got the raised effect with the craft foam! I may end up doing something pretty similar to yours if I get around to it (hopefully within the month!) I don't plan on really wearing the costume until early June for a con, so I have to motivate myself to start moving!

Hey there :D I'm new to this site and relatively new to cosplay. I'm gonna try and make a costume for the first time for Phoenix Comicon. I'm gonna do Sheik, so we'll see how it goes! :) help with it would be very much appreciated!
