I would like to see what my fellow cosplayers think of my Sheik cosplay so far. I am still working on the arm wraps and chest wrap to make them easier to put on and take off. Right now the chest wrap and arm wraps I have to have someone tie them on for me which is a pain so I am working on making them with velcro closures.
I did buy this from another member here, but it needed some major upgrades. It started as a full one piece body suit that was very hard to get on and off. I separated the calf and foot part of the body suit and attached them to a pair of boots to make them their own piece. I also separated the hand guard parts from the body suit and attached them to molded plastic to keep them stiff and form to the curve of my hand. I still need to add the white trim to the hand guards. The head wrap was completely made by me and custom fit to my head with the wig on. The I decided to use has more natural looking highlights and lowlights to give a more realistic appearance. I do have red contacts in you just can not see them in the shots I have.
The harp was a successful first attempt at using a material that is new to me. It is super light weight and fairly durable. I decided not to make it have a super smooth finish and left it a little rough to give it more of a worn appearance. The strings are elastic so you "pluck" them and they will return to their original state.
These pictures were taken just a few days ago when it was freezing cold outside so we didn't stay for to long. They are the best of what we got that day.
