Welcome to the Legend of Zelda cosplay thread!

Before I get into the tutorials, the totally AWESOME Michi wanted to make sure that everyone understood the site rules so that we won't run into any more issues as we did in the last thread. You can find the entire list of rules [URL="http://www.cosplay.com/rules/"]here[/URL]. So please, let's keep this thread clean and civil. Thanks!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The last Zelda thread had well over 500 pages, which you can imagine is tough to perform a search. The biggest complaint, besides the off-topic situation, was searching for help and/or tutorials. The first few posts are made to help new and old cosplayers with their Legend of Zelda costumes. I spent the last few days looking through the old thread searching sited tutorials. There were written out tutorials (even a few made by me), but copy & pasting LONG posts onto another already extremely LONG post will only make it more difficult to update new tutorials because a post cannot exceed 10,000 characters.

The tutorials/tips are categorized to make the search easier. If there are any websites that offer tutorials on anything that could help a Zelda cosplayer, you can PM me and/or simply post it in this thread and I will gladly update one of the first few posts. If you yourself made a tutorial on a site and wish to post it on the tutorial/tips page, I will be more than happy to post it and give you credit.

Now before you read the list, I want everyone to know that cosplay is a fun hobby. It’s not serious business; it’s not the end of the world if someone doesn’t want to share their work. It’s a community of people who express their love for the character and have fun dressing up like them. As cosplayers, we need to respect our community and by doing so, we should respect people who want privacy. Alight, now that some of you are educated/re-educated, feel free to browse through the Tutorials/Tips guide and use any of these sites for any other cosplays you might have. Enjoy!

[FONT=Times New Roman]The tutorials are categorized for your convenience. There are also recommendations for certain level cosplayers (novice, intermediate, and advance). Note: The qualities of a costume differ between cosplayers and will not determine the level of a cosplayer. The levels are determined by experience to COSPLAY.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][COLOR=red]Novice- A person who is brand new to cosplay. Typically unfamiliar with most/all of the tools and/or techniques of cosplay. Novice cosplayers, however, can be skillful in other intermediate or advance techniques.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][COLOR=green]Intermediate- A person who is familiar to cosplay. Typically familiar with some/most of the tools and/or techniques of cosplay. Intermediate cosplayers, however, can be skillful in other advance techniques and/or learn from novice techniques.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][COLOR=blue]Advance- A person who is knowledgeable to cosplay. Typically knowledgeable of most/all the tools and/or techniques of cosplay. Advance cosplayers, however, can still learn from novice or intermediate techniques.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Recommendations will be issued to the tutorials in abbreviations.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Recommended for novice, intermediate, and advance cosplayers. This is recommended for armor/prop making. Craft foam is the easiest and one of the most inexpensive ways to make what you desire. You can also choose other foams such as insulated foam, velora foam, etc. Note that final results depend on the cosplayer, but I assure you the results CAN be excellent.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Not recommended for novice cosplayers. This is recommended for armor/prop making at an intermediate or advance level unless you’re a novice cosplayer already very familiar with this technique. It’s not nearly as easy as craft foam, it’s quite costly, and time consuming especially if you’re not familiar with fiberglass. However there are some VERY good tutorials on here. Fiberglassblades.com shows how to make the Master Sword.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][URL="http://www.studiocreations.com/howto/index.html"]http://www.studiocreations.com/howto/index.html[/URL][/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Not recommended for novice cosplayers. This is recommended for making mannequins to better form your costumes and full/partial body armor. A full body cast requires at least 3 people to perform. It is VERY involving, very time consuming, very costly, and EXTREMELY tiring for the model. Performing partial casts such as hands, arms, feet, and face are less time consuming and less costly compared to a full body cast (a full head is not recommended unless you’re advanced in this technique). But even still, this is not recommended for novice cosplayers unless they are already very familiar with this technique.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Not recommended for novice cosplayers. This is recommended for making masks, noses, ears, etc out of latex, rubber, resin, etc. These are less involving techniques, but depending on what materials you use, it can be VERY time consuming. Novice cosplayers can perform this technique if they are already familiar with it.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Not recommended for novice or intermediate cosplayers. This is recommended for making very high quality armor/props. However this is probably the most expensive technique to perform. It requires VERY expensive equipment and an already cast mold of specific design. The process is less time consuming if you have a mold and access to vacuum forming equipment. Novice and intermediate cosplayers can perform this technique if they have access and are already VERY familiar with the technique and equipment.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Recommended for novice, intermediate, and advance cosplayers. Please know that fabric is a preferred choice. There is usually more than one type of fabric you can use and some cosplayers have a preference of fabric that may not be right for you. I recommend doing the homework on your character and yourself. Make the costume how YOU want it.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Not recommended for novice or intermediate cosplayers. In fact, metalworking isn't recommended for cosplay in general, as most conventions do not allow live steel. However, here is a nice selection of patterns for those who wish to make armor, accessories, or props out of metal (these patterns can also be used with other materials as well). Metal can also be very expensive and quite time consuming to work with. Novice and intermediate cosplayers can perform this if they are already very familiar with metal working/making and/or welding.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Recommended for novice, intermediate, and advance cosplayers. Wig and make-up are probably the most important feature of a cosplayer next to the costume and can make or break the look of the cosplay.

[FONT=Times New Roman]Recommended for novice, intermediate, and advance cosplayers. This technique is recommended to make false boots while wearing regular footwear underneath. Fabrics/materials differ with other cosplayers, so use the materials you want. Boot covers can be time consuming depending on the shape of the boot and how you wish to construct it. It is also much less expensive to make and customize boot covers than to buy an actual pair of boots.[/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman]Recommended for novice, intermediate, and advance cosplayers. This technique is recommended for those who wish weather or dye their costumes (NOT props). Dying material can be time consuming depending on the costume and its difficulty. Also note that most fabric dyes can ONLY absorb into natural fibers such as cotton, linen, etc; other/synthetic fibers like polyester, nylon, etc most likely will not absorb the dye. So be sure to know what type of fabric you’re working with.[/FONT]

Yay new thread. ^__^

This place will be so much more organized than the last, and should be easier for everyone.

Oh, wow, I love the mass amounts of tutorials you dug up @[email protected]
Here's a couple more for ear-making that I've found while looking for how to make some:
[url]http://www.alleycatscratch.com/lotr/Article/Ears.htm[/url]
[url]http://www.scendan.com/lotrears.html[/url]
I'm planning on trying them out over New Years, and then I'll be able to comment more on them :)

#9 Crazy Neko CJ on 12 years ago

New thread, yay! ^_^

Well, I was from the old thread, and now I'm in this new thread. Subscribed to this one as well. If you don't know me, well, I cosplayed a Dark Kid Link before, with a plush Kokiri sword and a cardboard Deku shield. I hope to cosplay another Link EVENTUALLY in the future. Probably a Red Link from Four Swords, because he happens to be my favorite. ^^

To all new Zelda cosplayers, welcome. If you need any help, go look at those tutorials, and if those don't help you, if you ask us, I'm sure everything will be fine. Just, don't ask me. XD I made all of my stuff out of plush.

This thread is very organized, and I'm sure it'll help future Zelda cosplayers lots! If I find any interesting tutorials to help us out, I'll be sure to let you know!

The huge list of ORGANIZED tutorials in this will most certainly help more than just Zelda cosplayers, I'm sure of it! I know that a chunk of these tutorials will help me as I work on other costumes-just looking over this list has helped me more than the general tutorial list in...huh...i can't even find the old tutorial list.

Glad to help :)
I should dig through my bookmarks (once my paper is done >.> ) and see if I can find any more tutorials I've found on my adventures through the internet.

Whoa. Major Kudos to you PZ for making such an organized AND HELPFUL thread! :D

Gowa-Chan that would be great!

Thanks Breeface! ^_^

I might post a reference guide as well, but I want to do the tutorials first because references are REALLY easy to find. I also might post up a character list of every Zelda character and their difficulty.

Well I just wanted to say that this thread is turning out awesome! and I'm sure we'll have more tutorials up on it by the day. Thanks so much for taking all this time to make such a great tool for not only Zelda cosplayers but all kinds of cosplayers. Heck I've already found a couple that I want to look at in more detail. I will definitly let you know when I finish my shield tutorial its the least I can do to contribute to the thread.
