The Zelda Project: Waiting by Adella The Zelda Project: Waiting by Adella
As always the forest was quiet, save for the preternatural whispers of the ancient spirits that only she could hear. Saria waited patiently, as she always had, for any sign that the friend she bid farewell to seven years before might return.

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.

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 truly love the pose. It really fits with the setting as well as the character. Also, I agree to your statement that she is a natural at posing for photos as you mentioned in one of the youtube videos you made to go along with the rproject. This has actually inspired me to do a project quite similar to this one of a different series. Thank you for that, and I hope to see more video game projects as well as other types of projects. Keep up the fantastic work.

Oh and a couple more things. The camera you used for the shoot, what type or brand name is it? I am hoping to create a plan for a shoot around my birthday, the 22nd of this month and also to put it on here. I plan on doing a game as you did, but it may be simpler meaning that mine might not be as supirior as yours. I'm just debatin what game it is that I want to do. For example, an Earthbound shoot celebrating its re-release for the wii u and 3ds. I could also do an Animal crossing shoot as well (maybe the simplest of the ones I mention). I also might do Pkmin, but the beam is leaning more twards the Earthbound and AC shoot ideas. Could you help me decide? Thanks and great job! aislinntheanimelover.deviantar…
