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.

But all was not lost. Indigo, Lune, and I decided to make the best of our weekend. We had some ideas for shots we wanted to do, so we headed over to the Stafford ranch to test them out. I wore my Malon costume, without ears of course, and just opted to not wear the wig since it wasn't necessary, and we got some interesting shots that we're going to play around with.
Big John was very happy to see a familiar face when I arrived, but Bella, who was stalled next to him, had been acting like a brat and so he was not in a very good mood. We got him out of his stall, saddled him up into his full costume, and Lune rode him around a little to get him some exercise. He was nervous because so late in the day coyotes come out, so we decided not to take him into the field. Since we are pushing the shoot back two weeks, the wisest decision is to have Big John stay at Stafford Stables so that we don't have to cart him back and forth.
At the end of the day, after Lune had finished riding, it was getting dark and very cold. It was likely going to rain. This part was my favorite part of the day, because I helped get all of the horses into their blankets and feed them. They were pretty hungry! I was giggling because in my head I thought "I'm LARPing as Malon!" It was so fun to be with the horses that I'm probably going to ask Dawn if I can volunteer on the ranch.
So I suppose my only regret out of what happened, is that the weather these past 3 days we were supposed to shoot has been unbelievably beautiful. It was as if Earth was ready for us to take photos and wanted to make sure we were as comfortable as possible. The last weekend of May will likely be in the 90s and not the 70s... so we won't see that kind of lovely weather again. Sad.. but that's how it has to be.
