TZP: Follow the Song by Adella TZP: Follow the Song by Adella
"A faint melody swirls through the air, riding on the back of a cool forest breeze. Melodious and swift, the soothing sound of the Forest Temple helps to guide the hero's way."

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 once the cosplay segment of the project is completed!).

Link Model: Anthony Beaston "Lune"
Costume: Made by me
Photography: IndigoVerse *Indigo76
Makeup/Special FX: Joellen Elam *Lillyxandra
Prosthetics/Special FX: Dasha Bolotina
Leatherworking: Ben Wallace, Me
Sword/Shield/Sheath: Aaron Granofsky, [link]
Visual Effects: Julia Starr `night-fate
Assistant Photographer/Lighting: Aimee AKA =SeptSky
Assistant Camera: Evan James

The Zelda Project Official Website: www.thezeldaproject.net

The boots, gloves, and belts are all real leather, which we will be distressing further in the future. The gloves are still in semi pristine order right now, because Link has just emerged from the Temple of Time in his new clothes! The sword and shield are made with a number of different materials including high density foam, fiberglass, and resin. We included with the shield some distressing, since he is able to use it as a kid, but we will embellish it further as time goes on! The tunic is made with rayon spandex jersey knit, and the underclothes are a combination of 100% linen and spandex ITY. I will be posting a more in depth "how it was made" on the website once all of the photos have been posted!

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 visual effects, 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!

I adore your work, and your attention to detail is superb, but one thing really bothers me about this otherwise fabulous picture. I'm part of a medieval recreationist society, specifically in armored combat, and that shield is strapped to his arm in a way that makes it impossible to use in a fight. I'm not sure if you really care about that, but I just wanted to let you know because, for me, it kept it a great shot from being a magnificent one.

Again, I really admire your work. Sorry to be nit-picky.

It's an exact replica of the design of the game's shield, it's not meant for SCA wars. It's foam and resin. :)

That is amazingly done.

Where was this shot? You guys have done such a superb job of finding RL locations to shoot this stuff in I have to know. It looks like a redwood forest but I can't be certain. All I know for sure it the whole thing is coming together so great that it's almost beyond words. Superlative? I dunno, lemme go look up some other adjectives.

Wow, that wood is gorgons! I always imagined Link standing there like that when I was confused and couldn't remember my way through the forest . . . that or running in circles, LoL.

Why did you decided to wrap/bandage the sword?
