Princess Zelda Cosplay by skebz Princess Zelda Cosplay by skebz
The first picture of me in the costume on the left is terrible. The guy from nintendo was like "pose like zelda!!" lol

This was my first ever "proper" cosplay. We had a competition on at work to dress up as our fav nintendo character for the release of Super Smash Bros Brawl.

I learned how to make the armour like bits from here

I think she has a DA page but I dunno ... :s

anywho! It took about a week to do (thats all the time I had). Some parts are obviously wrong, like my hair and headdress, but i improvised most of it to make it work, and im so happy how it turned out since it was my first time doing anything like this.

I was lucky enough to find that dress (a wedding dress) for £20!! the purple top was made out of fabric i bought and my mother sewed together, the rest is made of foam/paper.

theres more detail on the back, I just never got a pic of it :s If anyone wants to see more I'll take more pics of it :D

If you have any questions about how I made it just ask :D

it wasnt a cosplay at all lol we never get anime events here! it was held in the game store where I work. Nintendo were showing off super smash bros on wii, and we were allowed to dress as nintendo characters that day :P


thank you so much :D :D

Oh that's awesome! it was a competition? did you win? That whole thing is so neat.

thank you!!!!! Im not so sure who won. The competition was only held in 5 stores in the UK, so no doubt someone in London won cuz they have so many stores where u could probably just buy the costumes :( they took my name, address, e-mail address and phone number... I wonder if the nintendo website will show who won? Im not sure.

anywho, it was a good experiment into how cosplay works. Its tough!

yeah as i said ive never cosplayed before, and since only 2 of the guys in my store dressed up, and i felt rather ugly, i was super nervous. and when i was asked to pose i was like BLAHG and messed it up. Yeh i loved my outfit, but hated my hair and face so... i didnt feel very confident :s

thank you so much though!!!!
