Cosplayer Layze Michelle just made a Breath of the Wild Zelda costume so spot on that it looks like Zelda has become a walking and talking three dimensional person. After gathering reference images, she made the Zelda costume by hand from sculpting or 3D printing the accessories, to making the tunic, to putting together and styling the wig. She spent about three months on the project, and that investment of time is clear. For example, she made her own Silent Princess Flowers and painted them by hand over a period of several hours. You can see the progress in this video:
The attention to detail is evident in the final costume, but take a closer look in these in-progress pics:
