Zora Queen Rutela Unfinished by HylianJean Zora Queen Rutela Unfinished by HylianJean
Edit: Moving to Scrapbook since this is sort of an in-progress photo. Thanks for your kind comments, everyone!

She's not quite finished yet in this photo (missing her airbrushed color-blending, some hair length, and her overskirt) but I had to go ahead and debut her at SakuraCon 2011 and get a few pictures taken.

Here's a photo of her almost completely finished:

Please visit my gallery for the long description and more work-in-progress pictures of this costume!

Character: Queen Rutela of the Zoras
From The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Thanks so much, I'm flattered!

You are by far the greatest cosplayer I have ever seen :worship:

How heavy was the head tail? It looks rather cumbersome
HylianJean Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2012
Aw, jeez! Thank you!

The head tail is cumbersome but it is not too heavy. The trick is to make sure it's padded properly inside so that it doesn't put constant pressure on sensitive places around my eyes and temples. Properly padded, and with a little break a couple of times to de-fog my eyes, I was able to wear her for about six or seven hours on Saturday before I got too sore.

Wow, that's really freaking amazing. I've known plenty of people who did something big like that and gave up half-way into the day because it was just too much to handle. You must have cast some serious creative wizardry to make it work so well. I honestly can't praise it enough!

I really wish I could have seen you in this in person!

At PAX I did have to get changed after about four hours because it was so stuffy and crowded in the convention center, and my eyes were fogging up really badly with nothing I could do about it. She's a tough one to wear!
Thanks, your praise is very much appreciated. :)
