Maiden Princess Zelda - Legend of Zelda a Link to the Past
This cosplay was made in the summer months of 2014 for Otakuthon 2014.
The dress is made of a blue cotton-sateen fabric, which shines only when the light hits it just right. Because this version of Zelda is in such casual attire, it was the most perfect fabric, and the perfect colour. The sleeves and collar are made of regular cotton, and the white underskirt and blue underskirt are made of crepe fabric. The bodice is also lined with the same blue crepe.
The collar has hand embroidered triforces on them, and the sleeves have a lace trim with what looks like triforces on them (lucky find!).
The brooch is a gold back, pin piece, with the red part being molded out of clay and painted. The bracelet was made the same way. The tiara is made of thin, cold wires all braided together, with a foam piece in the center.
The wig was simply cut in a few places, and the crinoline, belt and pointed ears were bought.
With this I participated in the masquerade but with no award.
