Last summer I decided I wanted to cosplay Marin from Hyrule Warriors Legends. She’s originally from one of my favorite games, Link’s Awakening, and her updated design for the new game is fantastic. This is my second cosplay from Hyrule Warriors Legends, and my first cosplay in about a year! (I will do a Linkle photoshoot… one day…)
I already have sandals and a wig, so the main thing to create here is the dress. It looks simple, but it’s actually a lot of work. Here’s what I have after about six hours of work.
I’m using Simplicity 8048 to make the dress, mixing and matching some of the pieces to get what I wanted. I also needed to modify the sleeve pattern to get the bell shape (it’s still not as dramatic as in the character art, but oh well).
I’m very happy with it so far, although it still needs a lot of work. In particular, the hemline trim is going to be a pain in the ass. There is so much hem and so much detail. But it should look awesome when it’s done.
