Cosplayer Mystic > Costume of Princess Zelda from Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Zelda's dresses are usually very elaborate and have many pieces, so it's nice to have something simple and comfy to wear, and easy to pack! :D
The white under dress was Butterick 5315, I lengthened the skirt and used a different pattern for the sleeves for the extra poof. The blue dress is two different patterns, McCall's 5954 for bodice, and the same skirt pattern as the white dress, just gathered. Unfortunately I didn't have the budget to search for a more accurate blue, so I ended up settling for what was at Joann's since I had a gift card. I might redo that if I ever find a better fabric.
The tiara is actually a choker I found at Joann's, along with the bracelet. The earrings came from an Etsy store, I just painted them.
The wig is a Jenny from New Look in 24/613. I meant to do the little hair flippies, but I ended up realizing too the soon to the photo shoot that I couldn't just curl and sew in some extensions like I had intended, and that I would have to cut into the wig itself. Hopefully I'll get that part figured out some time soon.
