Beautifully Made Zelda Costume

twilight princess zelda costume

Zelda has had different looks across various games, and cosplayer Akuriko has re-created more than a few of her outfits. My favorite Zelda costume is The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess version, and Akuriko built what looks like an exact replica. She made everything except the ears and spent about one year and four months on the project. The time she invested is evident in the quality. She used craft foam, Mod Podge, epoxy resin, and tons of other everyday supplies in the build.

From her FAQ on the costume:

How did you make your armor?
I created the base from craft foam, backed it with wire form, sculpted the details from model magic, and sanded them after the model magic was dry. I then coated them with one layer of fiberglass resin, spray painted, and weathered them.

How did you make your crown and other accessories?
I made them from model magic, sanded and sealed them with modge podge. Then I painted and weathered them, and coated them with high-gloss epoxy resin.
