Hello everyone,

I recently wore this Sheik Costume to Anime Boston 2010. I am planning on fixing it up to wear to Connecticon, and other cons in the future. But before I start the process of revising the costume, I would like to hear some opinions on what I should work on. I would like to make this a durable costume, and so any suggestions you might have to make a costume last a long time are welcome.

The gallery can be found here: [URL="http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/178643/"]http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/178643[/URL]/

And here is reference: [url]http://wikicheats.gametrailers.com/images/b/b8/Super_Smash_Bros_Brawl_Sheik_01.jpg[/url]

It is made of cotton jersey, knits, and upholstery.

For more information on the costume and the process I went through to make it, [URL="http://shaunartcosplay.wordpress.com/completed-costumes/video-game-original-design-cosplay/sheik-super-smash-brother-brawl/"]click here.[/URL]

Thanks!!

Any advice would be helpful. Or even advice on posing or how to make this costume easier to critique! I will provide any information that I can.

i love it. i would say try and look more masculine, i know Sheik is Zelda, but she looks very butch in that form..
as for advice on how to look more like a man, im not to good with that.. lol.. darken your eyebrows.
awesome job!

I does look rather perfect, but I agree with theonlyangel77. Sheik is supposed to be a man, or at least androgynous-- so I'd say just act more masculine. The cosplay itself looks fantastic though.

Thank you both!
I, the smallest, girliest creature, will continue to practice posing like a man! :D

Looks very good, and I also realize he's supposed to be a bit more masculine, but I believe you're pulling it off very well. The only structural thing I noticed is your head piece/face mask are a bit wrinkly, and it looks like the same white fabric you used for other small pieces of the costume. Perhaps change this fabric into a smoother, stretchier fabric?

I really think this is a lovely cosplay. You did a great job on the detail work. I agree with the others as far as androgyny goes. Also, kind of in the opposite direction, if you could make your poses a little more graceful looking, that seems like it'd give a good Sheik vibe. : ) He... she... he-she is very agile and graceful. Your posing is really good! Just seems like adding a little more grace would put the icing on the very well done cake. : )

thank you very much for the suggestions! I'll work on that.
