Hi everyone! I'm Eilidh, and I am new to cosplaying, but I do have a bit of background in art and design so I'm throwing myself in at the deep end.

I'm interested in cosplaying Zelda, as she appears in Twilight Princess, and I wanted to ask what materials other people used? The fabrics of her dress, her armour, her crown?

Thanks to anyone for helping <3

I used craft foam for the armor and crown! :O as for the fabric... =_=; I just picked ones that had similar colors and feel.

http://www.entropyhouse.com/penwiper/costumes/helmsdeep.html -- really easy tutorial! And it comes out really well~

You know how the shoulder armor is really detailed.... and well, I didn't have that 3D fabric paint, so what I did was I cut out the design on a separate piece of foam, and glued it on top of the shoulder armor. It comes out like this: click meh! x3
