Zomigosh I love this costume. I'm really proud of myself for getting this done in time. I was really doubting I'd manage to complete the wig.

I've been wanting to do this costume for about two years now, it has to be Zelda's cutest character design.

Construction notes:

The dress is two patterns put together. I used top C from Simplicity 2827, sans the sleaves and sewed it to McCall's 4090 at the waist. The bodice was made from a heavily modifed New Look pattern that was a jacket with a Mandarin collar. Its held shut by hooks and eyes. By the way, its reeeeeeaaaallly fun to hands sew those through about seven layers of fabric. All but maybe five edges of this costume (mostly the cape) that I couldn't get at safely are finished with a serger.

The tabard was a pattern I drafted myself, all designs are fabric appliqued on and satin stitched down.

The wig was *fun*. Sort of. Not really. This was my first time ever really styling a wig. It was an interesting experience. I have to say, prewefted extensions are made of love. The base is an Angela 750 in 144, with about 2/3s of a pack of cosworx prewefted extensions in #144 sewn in. (Matched the Angela perfectly, even though its not the same fiber type.) The ponytail is made of the same extensions.

A few things will be change about this costume. Time restraints kept my from making a proper tiara, and I definitely need to add more volume to the ponytail. The curls kind of went nyurnn in the hotel room, I'll have to figure out a way to make those stay in better.

Thanks to Dead.Pepper for the help with the tiara!
