Unknown Warrior (Original Fierce Deity)
The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

This costume is in the GATHERING SUPPLIES stage!
Well, this is actually an original side story in the Majora's Mask manga that floats around on the internet. I really liked the costume design for the main character (the warrior--not the monster).
This will give me a little bit of challenge, because of the armor. I'll probably have to wait to move to a bigger house, because right now, there is no room in the house I'm in (it's a crappy non-mobile home), and boxes are stacked up to the ceiling because my old house was bigger. But such is the way of life.
Anyway, I can't wait to get started on this--I really want to do this one as accurate as possible, with the drum and everything the character has. I don't think anyone will recognize me, but I'll enjoy doing it anyway.
So I've got the color scheme up. You can see it in the picture, but here are the details.
HAIR: Blonde/brown (I have a Link wig being made for me, so that's gonna work out great)
FEATHER: Blue with green streaks in it. And it's actually a knife in disguise as a feather. Decided to commission it.
CLOAK: Brown or black....undecided.
BAG: Dark Blue (darker than the pic) with a burgundy chord and a gold tuft at the end.
TUNIC: Burgundy/red with white accents and a green teardrop pendent hanging off the end of the front.
PANTS: Going to be black.
BOOTS: Brown with white cords.
ARMOR: The arm plates will be brown with gold accents to match the tunic. What you can't see is the underarmor, but you can see it here: http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m286/lionofjudah_2006/unkownwarrior/colorarmor.jpg and that will be silver with gold accents as well.
Decided to commission the breastplate. Mainly because I don't have working space for the thing, and that way it'll last. I want this costume to last, because I've become very passionate about this thing.
The manga reveals Majora's Mask to be an ancient and dangerous artifact made from the body armor of a legendary beast named Majora. Majora lived in a land that was not moving, but not dead either, nor had it stopped. According to a myth devised "by the humans themselves," the armour worn by Majora was supposed to grant wishes and hold a great and terrible power. Warriors, adventurers, soldiers, men, and women sought after Majora for his armour, though he killed them all.
After centuries of a solitary existence, a human, disguised as a musician and resembling Fierce Deity, approached Majora, and offered it eternal rest, not by fighting, but by playing music. As the human beat a drum he carried with him, "making time move", Majora began to dance for three days, and on the fourth day, died. All that remain of the beast was his armour.
The human carved Majora's Mask from the armour. By doing so, all of Majora's power was sealed in the mask. The human believed that by creating the mask, his power was no longer a menace. He threw the mask in an abyss and was lost for centuries.
