Legend of Zelda’s Hyrule Warriors spin-off presented a new world and new costumes. Princess Zelda is a hero in the series, and her outfit has never looked so awesome. Li Kovacs, a.k.a. pikminlink, made the costume from the props to the armor to the corset just before the game was released last September. She had to use every technique in her arsenal from sewing, to mold-making, to 3D modeling. She explains:
Had two weeks to complete.
Full costume, props, ears and accessories made by me. I made the armor out of thermoplastics and foam and the gold designs in the skirt took about 16 hours. There was lots of sewing, building, sanding, bondo, and paint, along with lots of blood sweat and tears involved to get this done on time.
She took photos along the way and put together a video discussing how she crafted the Zelda costume.
