Casual/modern TP Zelda cosplay?

To begin with, I haven't actually played TP (yet) but I love her character design and the Zelda franchise.

I was thinking of wearing this top paired with a knee length white shirt and plain brown boots along with my elf ears.

Do y'all think the shirt works?

Knee length shirt sounds more like a dress to me. But what do I know?

TP Zelda is very serious and very stately, so it'd be interesting to compromise between elegance and casualness. A knee length dress would look good with the boots, but I'd consider a vest instead of a t-shirt. The shirt would work, yes. There's a heck of a lot more you could do though.

The name of the game in casual cosplay is taking the character's personality and design elements, and translating them into regular clothes. You've got plenty of details you can draw from in Zelda's original design, plus all that stately badassery she's got going on, so there are so many ways you can expand on your original plan. Putting an outfit like this together is fun because you can do what you want without following any real rules, so make the most of it.

Oops, I meant skirt.

Unfortunately, I lack funds to really expand, so it's very, very simple. Maybe next con I'll expand it and have some more fun.
