Final Form

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Last Updated: 09-10-2011

Decided to go for something a little different after noticing I don't have many Zelda costumes. I had just finished debuting my hooved shoes from my draenei costume and I loved wearing them a whole lot, so I wanted to do another costume that would use them.

The horns were made in a way similar to my draenei horns. I used a foil skeleton to make the overall shape to keep it lightweight, but then I wrapped the foil skeleton in tape so that when I applied paper mache, it would stick easier and the foil wouldn't poke holes in the mache. I coated them with a thin layer of celluclay (a paper-mache based clay) and gave them texture and shaped the ridges. I then spraypainted them with textured rustoleum.

The hooved shoes were going to be the ones recycled from my draenei costume, but I decided to make a new pair which looks more realistic, so I used those instead. They were made from a 4-inch stiletto with the heels removed and a hoof structure attached to the base. I would not recommend these style of hooves to anyone who has no experience walking in extreme heels. They were very difficult to walk in even with all the training and preparation I had taken to practice in them before the big event. I'm currently making another pair that will be more functional.

The headpiece and necklace were both hand-made by me. The outside pieces were crafted with super sculpey and the inside gems were made with casting resin colored with acrylic paints.

The pitchfork was a last minute prop. I didn't want to make Ganon's dual swords because I thought it would be annoying to carry them around all day and I also didn't think they looked very feminine. I decided on a pitchfork since Ganon tends to carry them in many other Zeldas and I could use it as a staff to help me walk xD I designed it using the swords as a close reference.
The pole was made from 1/2" pvc pipe and the top piece was cut from craft foam and painted. The gem and centerpiece were also crafted in the same way as the headpiece and necklace. I then covered it in gauze for accuracy to the main swords.

The clothing pieces were simple. They were just cut out from a main cloth and colored with fabric paint to the design on Ganon's pieces.

The belt was made from long strips of craft foam attached to a centerpiece via velcro. They were indented with a carving tool to hold the design and then dyed with shoe polish.
