Another Grand TPZ Adventure XD by ThePrincessZelda Another Grand TPZ Adventure XD by ThePrincessZelda
I hope you guys are pleased with this one ^_^

I redid a lot of Zelda costume mostly my armor, my bodice, and a couple accessories. I'm VERY proud of my armor, but the bodice I need to redo again even though technically the bodice isn't even 100% complete yet =/

So some AWESOME news! Where that photo was taken place was at the Game Developers' Conference at the G.A.N.G. Awards and Koji Kondo was given the Lifetime Acheivement Award. Well thanks to Tommy Tallarico of Video Games Live, he invited us to be Zelda and Link for the Awards ceremony, but we were supposed to be a suprise for him. So when Koji Kondo, Miyamoto, and Eiji Aonuma appeared in the room, we hid as quickly as we could, but Aonuma caught us! For those who don't know, Eiji Aonuma has been the director of the Zelda series since Majora's Mask (he also directed Twilight Princess ^_^). Anyway, he was sooooooo giddy and excited to see us as Zelda and Link! He came up to us and spoke with us for quite a while. It was SOOOO awesome! He totally started checking out both of our costumes and he called us PERFECT!!! :D I couldn't believe my ears! ^_____________^ It was just toooooooo AWESOME! Heheh! You can imagine the excitement that was going through me XDDDDD Well later on in the ceremonies, Koji Kondo was presented his award by Tommy Tallarico, who presented myself, my friend, Charles Martinet (voice actor of Mario), and Martin (video game pianist) to Koji ^_^ After the awards, Miyamoto, Aonuma, Koji Kondo, Tommy Tallarico, Charles Martinet, myself, and my friend were up onstage and we had a TON of photos taken of us ^______^ So here's PROOF!!! lol!!!!! Afterwards, Miyamoto and Aonuma signed my armor and Aonuma signed my glove right next to Miyamoto's when I had him sign it at E3 last year ^_^ Oh yes, my Excit-o-Meter was going THROUGH THE ROOF! XD But yeah, this whole story is just the MIDDLE part of my awesome Adventure at Game Developers' Conference. I DID get to talk to the Zelda gang before AND after the G.A.N.G. Awards ^______________^ So yes, I shall SOON post more photos! Just you wait!

Special Thanks to Tommy Tallarico for inviting me to VGL & GANG Awards :D

No wonder that Eiji Aonuma called you "perfect". You both look exactly like the real Link and Zelda. Most epic cosplay of them ever! You really have earned yourself the honor to speak with these special people :)

Absolutely Amazing... How were they in person? I'm learning Japanese just so I can address any and all of them formally, can't wait to make it to an event like this so I might be presented with the same opportunity. Though it seems extremely rare, I do not think it is just a coincidence that I am graced with the same name as the famous Hero of Time.

So So fortunate! You two both look amazing and a chance encounter like this makes it so worth it. After getting a costume like this signed though, do you just retire it and put it on display for memories' sake?

Thanks! Well the armor and the gloves I used after, but since I retired from cosplay I haven't used them. Although I did use them this last month for filming, but that wasn't for cosplay.

Awww.... and just when I found your DA too. :(

Oh well, I hope you're putting a lot of the craft/fabric-making skills that you got from cosplay to good use in other hobbies or work. I still look forward to seeing your other works. :)

Well..........I kinda went on a costume-making rampage yesterday and the day before just to take a break from polishing rupees and let's just say, I'm almost finished with it and I don't think I'm going to wear it for Halloween, so I might consider it a cosplay. IDK yet though O.o
