The singing of the trees was the first thing she ever remembered hearing. Their voices rose in unison as she climbed higher and higher into their branches, serenading her with a melody that she eventually learned to play for her fellow Kokiri.

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!).

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!
