I've decided that I'm not going to make a new costume for Sakura-con this year, instead opting to just wear Sheena again. She's comfortable, travels well, and best of all, doesn't require a lot of hair and make-up. I'm going to order a pre-styled wig after I officially get paid so that it will hopefully be here. I also still need to register, but that will also happen after getting paid. And paying taxes. :p

However, I'd like to do something different for 2013, I was thinking about Zelda's "maiden form" from A Link to the Past.

One of the perks of this particular outfit is that few cosplayers actually do it. )

I already found a costume pattern that I can modify and the Trifoce earrings I can make easily enough out of Sculpy or Fimo clay. In terms of footware I was thinking Victorian style walking boots. Part of the reason why I want to do the Maiden Zelda is that she's rarely done - most cosplayers either do her most recent incarnation or her official "Princess" gowns from past games. I've seen a few do her maiden form, but personally I like the gown and the simplicity of it.

I will admit that I'm a little concerned on how to pull of the ears. Obviously a quick Google search should turn something up, so I'm not too worried about it. I'm actually ridiculously excited about this - I've always wanted to do Princess Zelda but the idea of doing her full princess mode has deterred me in the past. I'm such a perfectionist that I couldn't do the costume without getting all of the details right. I figure this way I do Zelda in a way that's rarely done, along with something simple enough that I won't go nuts trying to make it happen.
