Invitation to Battle
Here's another close up shot of my TP Zelda costume! I'm so glad I had the opportunity to take pictures at the Morton Arboretum in mid October! It's really quite beautiful there that time of year. Yay for nature! :3
A few more notes about craftsmanship/materials used: I used purple taffeta for the bodice. I thought it was strangely appropriate because A) Zelda's bodice seems to change color in all of the reference pictures of her, and while it's nice that this taffeta is shimmery, I really chose it because it almost changes color depending on the angle you look at it from (not drastically, mind you) and B) It's pretty!
I used ivory bridal satin for the dress. A LOT of it. I have yet to post a picture of this costume that really showcases how huge this dress is, but it is large and in charge (not to mention heavy as hell with the 500000 pounds of seed beads on it!). That picture is coming in the future, mwahaha!
