I'm so excited to announce that my Zelda Twilight Princess cosplay won best in show at Anime Crossroads last weekend!! I still get so nervous in public, especially in the spotlight. Therefore, it was hard for me to control my emotions when I went up on stage to collect my trophy and I ended up balling right in front of everyone. **face palm**
Despite that, I felt truly blessed and honored to have all of my hard work recognized. Moments like this is what makes countless hours of sewing and crafting seem worth it, in my opinion.
For all those who have yet to experience this joy, don't give up! Keep practicing your art, improving and trying again when things fail. No one starts off perfect. Mistakes are necessary to learn.
Sorry it's been awhile since my last blog, but I was sooo busy through the holidays and what-not. I was able to finish the wig and sword for Zelda Twilight Princess, however. That said, I'm looking forward to debuting her at Anime Crossroads this weekend! (I'm so excited, I could cry.) Here is a side by side comparison shot I took of my cosplay and that from the actual game model.
I plan to upload more pictures soon and even offer a couple of poses in my print store.
If Zelda, Twilight Princess is also one of your dream cosplays, then be sure to check out my tutorials for her costume pieces in the tutorial section. I'm also selling kits for her crown and belt armor in my store.
