Fanime 2012: Groose and Link by Malindachan Fanime 2012: Groose and Link by Malindachan
My hubby cosplaying Skyward Sword things with me! :3
There are still some things that we weren't able to get done on time for his costume, but we did the best we could with the time we had. It'll be 100% done for-sure at Animefest in a few months.

I styled his wig using a Magnum Long in Apple Red from Arda-wigs. The pompadour is built much like how I spiked my Yusei wig, with a stiff felt form under the hair, and then I did a fake hairline like how I styled his Zack wig, using excess hair I cut from the back. Here are tutorials for reference:

I made the necklace using green and red polymer clay threaded on jewelry wire (has a jewelry clasp in the back).

The gem was resin-casted. I made the mold using this technique [link]

Kyle cut out all the pieces of the shirt and cape (shirt is suedecloth and cape is duckcloth with interfacing), and then helped with the sewing and painting on the cape while I sewed/painted the shirt. The cape was drafted without a pattern while the shirt was slightly modified from a regular shirt pattern.
Though not shown in this photo, I painted the designs on his pants. We just used a pair of khaki pants he had in his closet to save time, as well as a pair of boots he already had.

We still need to go back and make accurate gloves and a belt buckle.

Elf ears are from Aradani

My own costume is made and worn by myself :3
Construction notes on that can be found here:

What did you use to attach the hair to the base? I hope you use plastic wigs because thats what I use and I cant get anything to make it stick!
