Expressions of Royalty
I finally debuted Zelda at Otakon, and though I only got to wear it for three hours, it was really fun. :3 Due to sheer luck, I ran into a great photographer (l.jinto) who was able to take some really nice head shots despite my terrible zombie syndrome (aka no-sleep-at-cons-syndrome). I'm going to be doing a fancy shoot with my best friend sometime in the near future, so hopefully I will have some full body shots in a few weeks! :3
Just some side notes about construction: the armor was made with paper mache and paper clay, the gloves are fully embroidered and hand beaded (the hylian writing on the bodice is hand beaded too), the tiara is made out of sculpy, and the hair extention side burns are made out of huge freaking pain in the assishness.
The nightmare that is this costume is finally over!!!! XD I'm so happy, no more beading!!! Well, sort of...
Costume by me

Jaquii Lady Tyrona~ Thank you! I really like your Zelda costumes a lot! I used a really pretty purple taffeta for the bodice; it looks like its under-layered in gold in some lights! :D And I appreciated that comment on the Zelda forum. XD
