Practiced with Queen Zelda makeup and overall I feel I did a pretty good first try!
The eyelashes I got for this worked PERFECTLY except I still need some work putting them on. And not screwing up my eyeliner.
Ah yiss working on my queen zelduh
Reminder that you should practice your cosplay makeup a couple times before you wear your cosplay!! It has saved my butt more than once.

Have I mentioned how dorky Zelda’s bodice/middle section thing is?
It looks like something I would have drawn in middle school without the knowledge of how clothes work.
If I meet the designer of this game I will punch them.

Some WIP images I could find of Hilda’s crown.
I didn’t take as many photos of the staff because it was so last min
(for thegreatfabsby )
Hey-o! Sorry if this message is late!
I made my staff out of a PVC pipe (you can find some at your local hardware store, and if it’s too long just ask for it cut!) that I spray painted blue. The bits on the staff were made out of pink insulation foam, craft foam, and covered with layer on layer of mod podge.
The triforce bit was the hardest to make: I just used craft foam with stable pieces of wood interior to keep it’s shape (and of course covered with mod podge). I painted the inside black and strung led lights within (I’ve seen other cosplayers just use holographic paper and it’s a cool replacement!) and then covered up the holes with some translucent craft paper to get the full light effect I wanted. (sanded plastic will also work, but might me a bit more costly)
Then the crown! I made this with craft foam, wires, mod podge, and resin. The first thing I did was measure the diameter of the gems (made of the resin) to find out how wide and how many gems I needed to wrap around my head. I drafted the first crown out of craft foam and if I was happy with it, I’d make 3 copies of the crown to glue together. To insure it keeps it’s shape, place a wire throughout the crown. once you’re happy with the result, mod podge time!!
One you’re done layering with the MP glue the plain resin gems on the spots you want to be gold. THEN SPRAY PAINT ALL THE THINGS.
The red resin gem should be put on last, with a reflective material underneath to give it the most shine. Also putting nail polish on the tops of the red gems make them look a little nicer!
Oh and make sure the crown fits WITH YOUR WIG ON. It should be loose with your normal sized head, and snug with the wig.
mmmm that’s all I have at the moment if you have any further questions please ask!! C:
