Thanks! It only weighs a couple of pounds but it does start to put pressure on my forehead and ears after a while. I'm actually working on it right now, trying to make it more comfortable.

Whoa! That's some intricate work right there! I'm not into cosplay at all, but this just made me go "WHOA!!!" Specially since I soooo love Rutela! :love:
I don't know if this is finished or what, but I have to say, her color is not lavender, she's reddish with hints of yellow ^^;

:iconhylianjean:
HylianJean Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011
Thanks for commenting! No, as the description tells, she's not finished. She actually is lavender-purple through a lot of her lower torso, but pink-to-coral-red at the shoulders, arms, and the top of her head. My upper bodysuit is pink (the outdoor lighting adds blue to it) but I didn't have time or an airbrush to get the darker coral tones on to her yet.
Trust me, I spent two solid months with all the references there are available on the internet, videos I captured from the game, and the 3D, textured model extracted from the game. I'm vividly aware of everything that's wrong with her. :XD:

Absolutely stunning... I've seen a few attempts at Rutela cosplay, but yours is by far the most impressive. I personally love the beautiful transparent fins, and how you actually managed to give your face that Zoran profile with the set-up of the headfin and sloping forehead. <3

Thank you so much! I hope you'll come back and see her when she's all finished with her proper colors and overskirt :)
I'll probably try to finish her up in time for Penny Arcade Expo this fall.

This is sculptural yumminess Jean! My burning question is how did you manage the weight of the headpiece?

The vents/ water jets on her upper arms must have been a challenge and I l.o.v.e. your interpretation of her 'hair'. This is an amazing costume.

Are there more images to drool over?

I almost forgot... How did you do the fading on the ruffled fabric edges (lavender fabric)?
