TZP: Link Malon Epona and Cuccos

By Adella
8K Favourites
Malon caught the direction of his gaze as she lead Epona out to the pasture. "No Link..." She warned with a smirk, remembering his fondness for harassing the cuccos. They remembered him too, as one of them raised her head to warily observe the hero.

The Zelda Project is a Los Angeles, CA based group of friends who seek to bring to life the characters, settings, and overall feel of Ocarina of Time through photography and film. Our ultimate goal is to create the characters as they would appear in reality to the best of our abilities, placing them in beautiful sceneries true to their Hyrulean counterparts, and creating elaborate photosets, as well as a film short (coming soon! Stay tuned for our Kickstarter project!).

The Malon costume is a classic remake of my original Malon costume. The skirt, blouse, and scarf are all 100% linen of varying weaves and thicknesses. The costume has been distressed to show wear and tear, assuming that Malon would get dirty if she was working on the ranch all day! The background is a beautiful digital matte painting by Mickael Forrett. Also, to answer the popular question about horse makeup: We painted Big John's legs and tail and ears to have black on them because his coloration wasn't like that. We used horse show touch-up which many people use in horse shows to hide things like scars and imperfections on their horses. :D Think of it kinda like spray in hair color for humans, but it's made for horses.

Oh man. You know you've done it! Everyone's done it! Harassed that group of cuccos at Lon Lon Ranch and then jumped onto Epona's back and rode around in circles while they chase you but can't catch you. So funny. I had to put something like this in because it's too great to pass up.

This cosplay photo was a huge combined group effort that was a labor of love by friends and fans of the Legend of Zelda series. Combining all aspects of art from photography to matte painting, we wanted to bring the Legend of Zelda to life as best we could in a final presentation. So far this has been incredibly rewarding, and we hope that those of you who view our work are brought a little bit more into the world of Hyrule through our art.

A special thanks to everyone who has helped us get this far! Without all of your support and kindness we wouldn't have been able to make this happen. We only hope that with what we produce, a smile is put on your face!

All of the zelda pictures make me wish even more than ever for a live action movie series made about the game's story line.  Wonderful costumes and what a beautiful horse.  I hope one day I will be able to have land and horses.

Sorry, it's just that it's not very appropriate and not everyone wants to hear it.
