The Zelda Project, also known among friends as the most awesome Zelda cosplay to ever exist in the universe, is a project aimed at “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 trailer”. Aside from getting a brand new awesome layout for the site, they have also recently published a few new photos from their Lost Woods set. Check them out after the jump.
Throughout the years, fans have come up with many ways to express their fandom. As avid fans of the Legend of Zelda series, we have chosen cosplay and film as our outlets to show our love of the famous Nintendo franchise.
Cosplay, short for “costume play”, is type of visual fandom in which fans create costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea that they love. The cast on this page is only meant for the cosplay portion of the project. A separate set of actors will be chosen for the film short. The costumes you see in the still photo sets on this site are also solely meant to be cosplay, and are not created, designed, or intended to be realistic for a film setting.
Originally proposed by Adella, The Zelda Project is a Los Angeles, CA based group of fans 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 trailer.
We have a creative team of over twenty people strong, and we are always seeking new fans who are interested in being a part of the project. Currently we are in the middle of shooting all of the cosplay photos for the first part of the project, and the film trailer will go into production once the cosplay segment of the project is completed. Right now this is slated for December 2011.
