And, is there anything else I can do to make my character more recognizable? I'm making fairy wings (since I can't find any in her shape) and will be carrying a sign that reads "Hey! Listen!"

Thanks in advance!
They look great!
I personally always thought of navi having a more sassy look to her, your interpretation is very interesting!
I don't know if it's too late or if you'll even lick these, but I used these for my Healing Fairy costume. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Womens-Iride...594#vi-content
They have basically the same shape.

This was a case of too good to pass up. I did a mashup involving Zelda, and ran into another group doing a Zelda mashup of a different sort at the Comic Con. How often does that happen?:

>: ( I had a post then lost it....

@ Chikkijet: Cats can be such a pain sometimes. Whenever I stat a new project I like to lay my fabric out to see how much I have to work with and as soon as I do, my cats just dive right into it. :P As for the part about sewing, I recommend looking at some YouTube tutorials. I am sure there are a few out there. I am a self taught sewer, so I know it can be intimidating, but it's really worth it to learn. Once you learn the basics, you can do just about anything.

@ LKD: OOOooohhh! It looks awesome on you!! I am so happy. I have to admit I was pretty worried when you initially contacted me. I was sitting here thinking "Oh her work is so awesome I bet mine is going to look so sloppy compared to hers". :P But I am so glad to hear you are happy with everything. Sorry to hear that the wig is such a pain though. I really hope you will be able to figure something out.


Cosplay update:
I finally got the liquid latex in the mail and was able to make some new ears this weekend. I am so excited. I think I might try to do a quick Vaati shoot before Sac Summer rolls around. He need some new pictures anyway. :P I hope everyone's weekend was just as productive.

@Seifer-sama: Don't forget to keep your harp away from your cats. I don't want them to stall you again.

@ JediofTime: Ha ha ha! I have, it's up on the shelf. I think once all the strings are glued they won't care about it anymore. It's only a toy when it's not finished. :P

Maybe you could make a cat's cradle with the strings your cats ate.

Well, I've hit another stopping point on my OoT Zelda costume. :| My paint just doesn't seem to want to dry so there's no way the armor/belt/tiara can be done in time for AFest next week. I posted a picture of my almost done tabard on my facebook page. (I caved.) I'm about to upload it here too.

So I bought a wig for my OoT Zelda today. It's kind of similar to my Maiden wig but that was is too yellow. They had a beautiful blonde-streaked wig that I tried, with wavy ends, but sadly it was too pale and washed me out. I guess I'll forever be a brunette or toon-toned Zelda :P

It's blonde, but still with yellowish tones to it. I think OoT Zelda is kind of in between Maiden Zelda and white-blonde anyway....

That's all so far... hoping to start my armor on my next few days off....

I'm looking for a new bodysuit for my Sheik costume. i didn't see one that I liked on ebay. Really trying to avoid a shiny one this time around. I found this one, but I'm still looking.

I'm retiring my old wig and thinking about getting this one:

If anyone has better options, especially for the bodysuit, please let me know.

Have you thought about dissecting your old body suit so can you make your own body suit patterns? That way you can make it out of a fabric you personally selected for being ideal.

I've been thinking about it, but I've never worked with any type of stretch fabric like spandex or nylon before. Is it hard to sew?

Spandex I know is hard to sew and you need polyester thread for the seems to hold whether you hand or machine sew it. It would also be a smart idea to use polyester thread for nylon as well regardless of how you sew it. If you use a sewing machine, you need a stretch needle to sew spandex and likely a ball point or stretch needle for nylon. (Check what would be the best needle for Nylon.) Never start the sewing machine on a high speed with these fabrics as it can literally tear them apart.
I sewed with blended Polyester/Cotton fabric and even blended it was extremely hard to hold in place while sewing.
