TZP: Hide and Seek by Adella TZP: Hide and Seek by Adella
"Most of all Saria enjoyed playing games with her fairy. The small creature was hiding from her somewhere, and she was going to find out where! As she crept along on her toes, perfectly silent from hundreds of years of practice, she spotted a tiny glow on an overhanging branch.
The corners of her lips tugged into a small confident smile."


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!).

Saria Model: Alondra
Costume: Made by me
Photography: IndigoVerse *Indigo76
Makeup/Special FX: Joellen Elam *Lillyxandra
Prosthetics/Special FX: Dasha Bolotina
Visual Effects: Julia Starr `night-fate
Assistant Photographer/Lighting: Aimee AKA =SeptSky
Assistant Camera: Evan James
Location: California Coastal Redwoods

The jumper is made with 100% cotton sweater knit with a slight lurex spun in to give it just enough "fairy sparkle." The turtle neck is a 100% wool 5x3 rib knit. I hand dyed both the jumper fabric, and the turtle neck fabric to be the colors that I wanted.

As the Sage of Forest, Saria is likely the first born Kokiri, and closest to the trees as any of the others. She is the eldest, and most connected with nature, so I always figured that she could see their auras and hear them speak. It was a fun idea, to assume that it was their song that inspired the creation of "Saria's Song" in the first place.

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!

Whoever played Saria is absolutely perfect for the role! She's so young and childlike, whilst still maintaining that Saria look. Beautiful shot!
