TZP: Malon in the Pasture by Adella TZP: Malon in the Pasture by Adella
They say that Malon of Lon Lon Ranch hopes that a knight in shining armor will come and sweep her off her feet someday..

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!).

Malon Model: Sarah Quillian *Adella
Costume: Made by Sarah Quillian *Adella
Photography: IndigoVerse *Indigo76
Matte Painting: Mickael Forrett
Makeup/Special FX: Chase Birdsong
Lighting Assistant: Marcus Eddings
Assistant Camera: Julia Starr
Bowser Pin: Donated by ~AnimeGeer
Storyboarding: Sofia Alexander *Elenath

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. Can you pinpoint where she's standing? :D

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!
