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.

Hey Everyone! So sorry that things have been slow going here. Money is tight for everyone involved in the project so we’ve been having to focus on our bills! But that being said, I have personally been able to get a little bit of Link completed! The tunic is almost finished (just need to hem and finish the inside of the collar facing), as well as the majority of the undergarments. I wanted to go with something that was drapey like a knit, but wouldn’t be too stretchy, so I decided to use 100% polyester 70 denier interlock. For the underclothes (the shirt and pants) I used poly ITY. The shirt itself looks slender, but it has a considerable amount of spandex and mechanical stretch to help form fit around Lune’s muscles. I love the silky hand to the fabric as well!
I had to run to the garment district to buy some emergency sample yardage for work today, and while I was cruising through Michael Levine’s I popped into their knit section and found the perfect ivory shade of ITY! I was really happy and grabbed it without much debate. Which of course, is funny, since I tend to be incredibly picky and never impulse-purchase fabric ever! As soon as I got home I started working on the under shirt and pants, and finished within 30 minutes of cutting. The only thing that’s left to do on the under shirt is the collar portion, which I will be doing out of a woven, so that it stands up properly, and attaching it to the shirt as a yoke.
Naturally my apartment was a disaster afterward ! Lune is coming into town on the 28th and we’ll be doing a fitting at that time and then I’ll be able to drape the collar on him properly. Yaaaay! Next up is wig work while I wait for Lune to come back!
