MAGIC ARMOR! I love how this armor looked and I had to make it. I always see the Magic Armor as being like an Armor of a Hylian Knight. When I first saw it I had to make it. It's been almost a year since I first wore this costume but never posted any pictures anywhere because I was waiting for a particular location to do a photoshoot at. I finally was able to during Wondercon2011 at a really nice Cathedral, so here it is. My dad was the photographer and we took good advantage of the location.
I've worked on this costume on and off for a few years. I put it on hold for a while too because I needed a break from it. Spent 5 months making the new chainmail (My regular Heros Garb chainmail took 6 months) for this one and the armor was a huge trial and error process. There were some parts that I had to remake over and over until it was right. The fabric parts were easy but time consuming. So many hours of satin stitching.
I started on it right after Twilight Princess came out and I had all of the reference images that I needed to start and finish the costume.
Throughout the years I've been doing what I can to bring Link and his world of Hyrule to life.
Costume was started 2006/2007. Worked on and off. Completed 2010.
