5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Spirit Tracks Princess Zelda on: November 04, 2013 05:27:18 AM
A recent Zelda addiction led my oldest daughters to pick Zelda themed costumes this year.  My 10-year-old wanted to be Zelda, while the 11-year-old wanted to be Saria.
  Zelda proved to be quite the challenge, more than just the "blonde princess" that she said would be easy to do.  kids....
    I drafted a dress pattern based on a skirt and shirt that fit her well, creating the golden chest plate shape out of fabric, as I did not have the time to mold anything.  I made the gold belt and tiara in a similar fashion: shapes out of fabric, instead of molding. My husband created a stencil for the symbols hanging from her belt, the center symbol being a 2-layer stencil of red then yellow.  Considering, I had just over a week to make it, including adding the gold at the neckline, then taking it in because it was floppy, she was pretty happy with it.

Here is what she wanted : http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120203005954/nintendo/en/images/2/22/Zelda_Spirit_Tracks.png

and here is what she got:

Shoulder detail, and skirt pleats:

Neckline, with top stitching to imitate the beveled look:




My Princess Zelda (also with the feather details behind her ears):

With Saria:

 And here is a pic of Saria, for reference: http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20110427001435/zelda/images/7/78/Saria_Artwork.png

 Oh! OH!  Both girls also became recent ocarina players, purchasing them from the Renaissance Festival, and practiced a few songs to be able to play them while Trick-or-Treating.

Thanks for looking!

 oh yeah, my brother got my husband and i into Wolf's Rain.  it's JUST SO good.  all three of us go all out and have the soundtrack on our mp3 player of choice.  but we often talk about how it's hard to listen to the music because we'll end up bawling in the car Smiley
   maybe someday i'll pull off a Cheza costume....

a couple more costumes for you.    a last minute costume, based on the blue wolf hood (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=372996.msg4389447#msg4389447)  i already had. i decided to dress as Wolf Rain's Blue character's human and wolf form. http://images2.fanpop.com/images/soapbox/blue-the-human-wolf_24119_1.jpg?cache=1249313641

  i found this tutorial http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-Cute-Kitty-Paw-Mittens/#step1, and made some paws to go with the hood.

it's a bit dark, but the fur is the same dark blue fur from the hood.   i left off the pads on the toes, because i am lazy.

forgot: wolf eye makeup...

and without the hood

 and my husband decided to dress as the robots from Disney's The Black Hole.

  i found some "mint in package" discount jersey sheets (the hem was VERY crooked), and studied my model (above).  i cut a pattern from an oversized sweat shirt, and only attached the arm strips at the shoulders.  there is an invisible zipper in the back, and 1/2 in cording through the collar. also, super shiny stretch material for an undershirt and fingerless gloves (he was dressing for a halloween performance for his band, and needed to be able to use his fingers)

happy halloween!
