Welcome to The Zelda Project

The Zelda Project is a Los Angeles, CA based group of fans who seek to bring to life the characters, settings, and overall feel of Ocarina of Time through photography and film.

A labor of love, this project combines all aspects of art from costuming & photography to CGI visual effects.  Our end goal is that we hope those of you who view our work are brought a little bit more into the world of Hyrule through our art.

Sewing Zelda

Last night Sarah and I picked up from where we left off last time on the construction of Zelda. While watching Miyazaki films “The Cat Returns” and “Whispers of the Heart” neither of which Sarah has seen before so you can imagine how much work we completed ^_~

Zelda wears long cheongsam style dress. We decided that we would add a seam on the waist line in order to gather fabric at the sides and back ultimately giving the dress a fuller look. Did I mention she has a train!! I think I’m most excited about it, they are so elegant and feminine <3 We will be giving it a blind hem to finish it off.

And then there is the top half of the dress. Zelda’s mandarin collar has a geometrical shaped keyhole, which is going to be a bitch to make. Thankfully Sarah has taken it upon her self to make it accurate. That means that I was watching her for thirty minuets cutting out tiny pieces of pipping, meticulously matching them up cursing over and over till she got it right! We are making our own pink piping to match the fabric we will be using for the tunic thing-a-ma-bob.

So far so good! More to come on our sewing adventures!
