Category: Video Game
Cost: $ US 100
Hours to Make: 80-100
First worn at: AnimeNext 2003
Inspiration: I don't know, really... I just really like the Zelda series, I guess, and her dress is so pretty. :)
Favorite Aspect: Getting it done!
Least Favorite Aspect: Looking back at it now, there are definitely things I would have done differently, but this was the third costume I completed, so I don't think I did too bad for being such a newbie...
Easiest Task: The tiara.
Hardest Task: The armor. You can't really see it that well in the picture, but the armor is very detailed. It took me several hours every night for about two or three weeks (I forget exactly at this point - but it was a while!). I sat on the couch and sewed and sewed (and swore) and sewed. Putting it together was sheer tedium.
