I started on this costume last summer holiday. This costume is as expensive as hell!
It took the normal budget of 2,5 normal costumes. (About 300 ++ euros.) Luckily, I have been saving money for 3 years now specially for this costume. XD
I am happy to say that my mom will do the sewing again. The best Christmas present ever! <3

Her shinyness is finished (after taking me 150 hrs of sewing shineys and beads)! Her debute will be at Abunai!con at the 28th of August!
And it was an amazing experience! People shouted Zelda quotes at me (I tried to reply to most of them), I had a LIVE Brawl on-stage and girls loved Tael and boys loved the sword.
Only bad things were that I got a headache of the tiara and that some small details fell from the dress. But I promise that you wont be able to find the missing details except for the back of the tiara!
And there is a little bit of filming in which you can see my costume (in BRAWL action XD):
And with the Bow of Light:
List of props:
-Sword (as seen in TP)

I seem to be building an arsenal of Zelda props and weapons.

And the respect of loads of people XD. (Including Ryo Fuijmara, a Japanese singer.)
