Zelda's dresses are usually very elaborate and have many pieces, so it's nice to have something simple and comfy to wear, and easy to pack! :D
The white under dress was Butterick 5315, I lengthened the skirt and used a different pattern for the sleeves for the extra poof. I really regret not modifying the collar for better accuracy. I intended to, but just went through the motions of assembling it and forgot. The blue dress is two different patterns, McCall's 5954 for bodice, and the same skirt pattern as the white dress, just gathered. Unfortunately I didn't have the budget to search for a more accurate blue, so I ended up settling for what was at Joann's since I had a gift card. I might redo that if I ever find a better fabric.
The tiara is actually a choker I found at Joann's, along with the bracelet. The earrings came from an Etsy store, I just painted them.
The shorter ears I originally used were from Aradani. The new and longer are from CosplayFX.
The wig is a Jenny from New Look in 24/613. I ended up deciding to leave the little hair flippies out so that the wig would be easily packable.
