My beautiful friend Joellen has always inspired me as the queen of Fairies. I had always wanted to make Princess Zelda’s costume from Ocarina of Time, but I never felt it was suitable for me to wear, but for her it is perfect. She truly has the face of Zelda, and I could hardly contain myself when she put the costume on for the first time. I worked tirelessly on this one. The gown is 100% silk, with silk chiffon overlay. The tabard is hand embroidered, and the armor was made from scratch. Would you believe that she’s wearing a wig I styled for her? I bet not! When we shot these photos it was 104 outside. It was pretty painful, but with great results!
