DeviantARTist Zoroko went and created this Zora Link costume for herself to wear to Ohayocon. It looks good. No -- great. No -- AMAZING. It almost makes me wish I knew how to sew. But it DOES make me wish I could have sex underwater without drowning (I never learned to swim).
In the end I never really kept track of the final amount, but I estimate this costume cost at least $300. Each part took a good amount of time-I would say that the helmet was probably the most difficult out of the entire costume. It was interesting trying to get the helmet to fit comfortably and get it to stay on my head without any problems (lots and lots of hidden velcro!). The hat is filled with poly-fill to give it a more full overall look.
There are more details about how Zoroko made the costume over at her deviantART page if you're interested, but I'm having a hard time concentrating on anything but the whole underwater sex thing. And I'm not just saying that because I'm standing on a chair with my penis in the fishtank, but I 110% am. Dammit you little plastic pirate, put the rum down and pay attention to me!
Hit the jump for several more shots of the impressiveness.
Thanks to Einstein, who invented relatives or something.
