Teen2 and I have been working on a costume for FanimeCon for months. It's Princess Agitha from the Legend of Zelda. Agitha sends Link out to collect golden bugs for her, and in return she gives him Rupees. So her costume is all about bugs and all girly. Quite a change for Teen2, as she is usually not girly.
She made all the jewelry from Sculpy clay. She made the wings with fabric, wire and felt pens. She trimmed her long hair and made the bangs which attached to her headband. She ordered rubber ears online and painted them to match her skintone. A lot of the characters had pointy ears, in fact, I've never seen so many pointy rubber ears in my life!
It turned out quite nice and she was the only Princess Agitha there. We saw many amazing costumes and she got to meet her hero; Pikmin Link! It was a good day out.
