@ ichigo_m.: Thank you!! I am sure it will! Are you going to have it for Sakura con?

@ Suzie Blue: YAYS! Thank you! For Zant, the helmet is the scariest part. What really helped me out was starting with a basic form out of funfoam and just duct taping them into a place until I was happy with the way it looked. I am not sure if that is a worthwhile method, but I didn't know what else to do! :P I would love to see some more Zant cosplayers though. And thank you for the compliments on the cape. This is something I have been putting off for forever, so it's nice to see something done on it. As for your Zelda/Hylia cosplay, that's exciting!!! I wish I lived somewhere near you so we could get photos together!! I am really looking forward to seeing that though. I think you will make an awesome Hylia.

Small Cosplay Update: Patterned out the hood of the TP cloak last night and fray checked all the new TP dress pieces. I am hoping to completely finish sewing up the cloak this evening. Then I get to look forward to more appliqueing for the scarf. Woo! I hope everyone else is making great progress!!

Update:
Okay, super excited here! I finally got to do my photoshoot, and I'm really happy with some the pics. Sadly, one of my major modifications to my costume broke right before the shoot... so I'm still without her braid + hair ornament. But hey, I don't care! I got to wander around a park as Zelda, and deeply confuse some random golfers! I'll just do another shoot when I get those final components working.

These are the first of the pics... more to come!

Seifer- Thanks for the advice! Hmm, I wonder if paper mache-ing a base shape would work? Of course I would still have to figure out something to build the paper mache off of... maybe some kind of wire base? I dunno. But yeah, your cloak is awesome! Especially since you are applique-ing and embroidering rather than just stenciling. Yeah, it's too bad we're so far away! :C I wish I could spend some time in California, but I've got a lot of saving to do before that happens! But taking pictures with you as Skyloft Zelda would be soo perfect. *.*

Nandra- Ooh, I love the photos! The lighting is perfect.

@ Nandra: I already commented, but I will say it here too. Your costume looks awesome and I am so blown away that this is your first costume. Great job and I hope to see a lot more from you in the future!

@ Suzie Blue: Honestly I am not sure what other cosplayers have used, I just thought wonderflex would work best for me because I am usually pretty tough on my costumes. Paper mache and a wire base is certainly something that could work though! It might be worth it to see what other people have done / used and I would just pick one you feel you could tackle that monster with. And thank you again for the compliments on the cloak. I am so excited to take pictures with it. As for Hylia and SS Zelda, let me know if you ever do make it out here! It would be wonderful to meet you in person and get a few photos. The travel is expensive though, so I can understand if it doesn't happen for a while.

@SuzieBlue, Ilafatyu, Seifer-sama: Thank you guys so much! =D =D Everyone here does such amazing work that it's really fun that you guys support what I did. Eh, that's stupidly worded, but I hope you get it.

And @Ilafatyu: Fortunately, it might not take too long to get it functional - I think I've figured out the very small, but very important mistake I made. And more importantly, how to fix it!

Seifer- Yeah, I would definitely put something like Wonderflex or that new Worbla stuff over the paper mache. Ahh, I wish I could just move out to California but that's not really the smartest thing to do, so I'll probably make a few trips before I go for good. I would really like to visit long enough to make it to AX and SDCC, but it would be SO expensive to pay for accommodations for that long. >.<

Nandra- You're welcome! TP Zelda is a dream costume of mine- I hope it turns out as good as yours if/when I ever get to it! (Whoa, I just scrolled back up to see that it's your first costume and may I just say DAYUM.)

@ Nandra: You are so welcome! I think the point of being apart of this thread is to support our fellow Zelda cosplayers and honestly, with how awesome your first is, you totally deserve it.

@ Suzie Blue: I would so love to try Worbla. It looks absolutely amazing. Sadly though, it seems pretty expensive... I would love to see the price drop on it, but I doubt that will happen. Oh? Are you wanting to live in California? Whereabouts? And yeah, extended stays isn't exactly cheap here, that's for sure. If you ever do come out for AX, be sure to let me know!


Another tiny Cosplay Update: I almost finished the scarf for the TP cloak last night, but ran out of time. I am hoping to have it done this evening and hopefully will have a photo tomorrow of the completed cloak. Yays!

@SuzieBlue: You know, I'm from California, so I should know what SDCC stands for, but I don't! Which con is that? (Not that I have the money to go to any more cons than I already do... but still, it's fun to dream!)

@Seifer: Where is the promised picture?!? Just kidding. Take your time. I can wait patiently. xD

That is the San Diego Comic Con if I am correct.

@ Nandra: I didn't know what SDCC was either. I guess I never put together that SD stood for San Diego. :P As for the picture, the scarf took a lot longer to make thank I thought, but hopefully I will have all the clasps sewn on this evening. Pictures soon. Promises!!

Update: Okay I promised a picture! Here is the mostly completed cloak. I just have to hand sew the clasps on and that's it. http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3356939/

@LinkPwns, Seifer: That makes sense! Yeah, I'd love to make it to that one someday... tried last year, but it was just impossible to get tickets without a good helping of luck!

@Seifer: Ooh, that made me gasp when I saw the picture. ^^ I love the frogs you made, and how they match the details on the scarf! (You did make them, right? Unless you just found perfect ones in a craft store through dumb luck.)

Hello! Could I get some help on this please? I want to make the Great Fairy Queen from Wind Waker but which one of these colors do I go by? From Left to Right:

Game Sprite / In Game / Four Swords / Art Work

Why is she 4 different colors! I'm debating on the green/grey skin (four swords & art work) or the In Game. Which would people recognize me the most?
