This costume has so many little details that were really fun to work on! My litmus test for every material I chose was, “can I make it shinier?” Almost every fabric, pigment or thread in this thing reflects the light in some way. I might have an addiction.✨

新潟県のスキーをPRする「レルヒさん」。
細身で背が異様に高いので、普通に写真を撮ろうとすると1枚目のように見切れてしまいます(笑)。

いかに背が高いかは、3枚目の宮城県の「むすび丸」と並んだ写真で分かっていただけるでしょうか。

ちなみに、冬には各地の観光PRのみならず、新潟県内のスキー場に出没しているそうです。

“Leruhi-san” Niigata prefecture, Japan.

Happy 31st anniversary to the Legend of Zelda series. ❤

I’m in love with this stunning photo by Miss Mallo Photography! It was an honor to meet and work with so many new photographers at Katsucon. Collaborating with other talented artists is one of my favorite aspects of cosplaying, and Katsucon is one of the best places to do it at.

The first finished photo of my Zelda cosplay. 👑
I constructed this costume over the course of about six weeks, but I spent just as long planning and researching the techniques that would go into it. Despite my time crunch to finish it for Katsucon, I am proud of myself for not cutting any corners or sacrificing my commitment to quality to get it done. (I just worked crazy long hours every day for weeks instead, haha)

This is probably the most complex project I’ve tackled to date. Although there are some small improvements I would still like to make, I’m really pleased with how it came out overall. Get ready to see lots more photos of this one!
