Midna is my favorite The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess character.
This was such a huge painting by hand project: the cape (especially this one), skirt and gloves.


  • Cheap satin
  • Texture Terlenka (cotton/polyester)


  • Foam
  • Placemats
  • Bamboo sticks
  • Diadem
  • Red gem
  • Keychain rings
  • Orange organza ribbon


The costume consist of 4 parts: the cape, top, skirt and gloves are made of Texture Terlenka (cotton/polyester) fabric.
Cape lining is made of cheap satin blue fabric. Skirt is a simple rectangle skirt with a split on the right side.


All the details are hand painted!
The gloves and skirt detail I printed out life size screenshots, so I could trace it.
I made a special paper template for the cape.

It’s not 100% accurate but I still loved the result!



The base is diadem and it’s hidden underneath the hood.

I used bamboo sticks spray painted silver.

I made the forehead jewel 3 times untill I was satisfied. The third one, was the one I used and it’s made of foam and glued a red gem in the middle.

I added the details with a fineliner and a pencil.

Make up

My best friend, did my make up for me because I don’t have the skills to do that. She has done such a beautiful job!

Thank you so much, your make up skills made this cosplay possible for me.

Imrpoved skills
