Cosplay - Windwaker Medli by Ai-Bee Cosplay - Windwaker Medli by Ai-Bee
Okay, round two! See the first cosplay here:


This one is none other than Medli from The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker

Once again, the model is my sister, ~lilsnowbear, and all the cosplay nonsense was sewn by me (with assistance from my power team, mom and mandy :D)

I did up her dress and the rito delivery bag for this one.
Before you ask, I didn't take photos of her "leggings" specifically because they did not meet my standards. Originally I'd preferred to do something more to fit the "bird feet" look, a yellow sock with sections, but we could not find such a yellow colored sock in time. So we had to go with the original plan, which was a more "loose wrap" look, glued over some sandals and on another sock for stability.

Things I learned:
- Next time find socks. if she ever cosplays this again, I'll redo the shoes/leggings.
- The hot glue gun still hurts when you touch it, yes bee, you didn't gain immunity like you hoped.
- use fabric paint, it's probably easier.
- glasses are the ultimate cheat to make things stay on your face. ultimate.
- Bee is still a slacker

Q: But bee, WHY DIDN'T YOU GO TO SAKURACON TOO? OMG
A: because i have bad luck at cons and i'd probably die some dramatic death in a pile of fangirls. because, you know, i totally have fangirls. :yum:
also she was going with her friend's family and it'd be awkward. maybe next time when it's on my terms. /control freak

She'll be cosplaying this outfit tomorrow as far as I know- if you happen to see this then see her, feel free to say hi! She's really quite adorable. Just don't be all creepy or I'll find you, you know, the usual stuff.

In all seriousness, you did an amazing job. You can tell just from looking the amount of time and detail that went into the costumes and she's just so cute in them! Nicely done!

Now make a TMM costume!

You mean sexy Medli. :B
Them thighs is everywhere, hnnngh~

Hrm. Yeah, it's hard to see the leggings. Maybe paint the hems on the wrapped layers next time to make it stand out a little more?

Hurr, I lurb this.

HAHAHAHA :XD: omg
She has really great hips so the dress looked smashing on her. I totally could have made the hems on the wraps darker, that woulda helped... Duley noted for next time.
Thank you! :heart:

My god, she really looks HAPPY on the third photo. I'd say to was worth it, then.

About the boots/feet, why don't you consider boot covers, next time? They're very useful when you tailor them exactly for the wearer and if you can glue them to the shoes inside, it's quite practical and it looks fine.

Depending on what you're looking for, acrylics can be better than fabric paint, especially if you're painting on a surface that will mostly stay straight. It's fine as long as you don't expose it to too much water.

Good job Bee :3

It's because I kept complimenting her while taking the photos. HEEHEE! :giggle:

I wanted to do something more like that, honestly! I saw these great cosplay progress photos of a wrapped boot cover for medli's legs over shoes, but the fabric I was using was not so user-friendly. I would definitely had started over if I had time, next time definitely. ://3
Thank goodness! She's definitely not gonna be getting near water (I hope...?) And her red accent piece is mostly staying stationary. I even sealed it (Kind of trying stuff by the seat of my pants, here) with gloss finish, which I think helped a lot. A lucky break, I must say.

Thank you! :love:

It works better with stretchy-fabric (for the legs warmers) but it can also work well if you put a zipper on it.

You're welcomed!

(I look forward to your future cosplays, especially if you make some for you and Ty 8D)

Sweet! Didn't think anyone else liked wind waker.
aren't you supposed to have a harp or something?

Don't be silly! There are lots of windwaker fans! :dance: And Zelda is definitely a nostaligic series for both of us, so.
Yeah, medli's got a harp. No time or patience to make it, so I opted for the more practical Rito bag instead.

Omg IKR! I don't even remember doing it, I might have blocked it out. :XD: I don't like having to carry any helpless assist-damsel, just like the zora princess in ocarina of time. Get yourself out of jabbu jabbu you lazy fishgirl!

:giggle: I don't even think Medli in the games would peck and run, haha... she's a polite little lady!
Thank you very much though! I kind of pride myself in staying accurate to the cosplay x///x
