Ganondorf - Zelda : Twilight Princess by Erendrym Ganondorf - Zelda : Twilight Princess by Erendrym
My Ganondorf costume. This was a real challenge for me because it was my first big work on armor and I'm not exactly shaped like Ganondorf... I had extra padding for the chest and the thighs too, to make me look bigger.
It was done for a group with :iconlye1: and :iconlucioless: for the french preliminaries for European Cosplay Gathering 2012. We did 2nd on the prelims.

EThe white background works perfectly with the complexity of the subject. The costume itself is 99% spot-on:The the crown is beautiful, the armor is perfect and the padding really gives it that big-boned Ganondorf look. The only things I would change are the color of the skin, which should be a bit gray-greener and the wispy hair - I feel it should be wavy. Also adding a Triforce on his left hand would be cool or even adding his septor/Sword of Sages. But all in all, this magnificent costume does the Ruler of Light and Shadow so much credit any minor obscurity can be overlooked.
What do you think?

That costume is currently not for sale, because I have to make a proper photoshoot with it. But after that, I'll probably sell it. It's pretty big, though, and I'm afraid it would cost to much to ship it abroad...

Really awesome job!

Hope you don't mind me saying -- the only thing I would suggest to work on in future is the hair, especially the beard, just to make it look more realistic. But I've yet to see a Ganon cosplayer get the beard perfect - it's hard!

But that's a really nit-picky critique, because otherwise this is so perfect.

I agree with you for the beard. It was kinda made in rush, so it can be improved. I'd love to have proper handcrafted beards for my cosplays but the right way to do it is sooooooooo long and boring ^^

In order to make a proper beard, you have to knot each hair on a really fin net, this is SO DAMN LONG ! :D

To be honest, I thought their Ganon looked more comical than accurate. I actually like this cosplay better than their version. :]

I had a hard time working on details and proportions with the 3D model and texture files because I wanted it to be as accurate as possible. So I'm happy you find it good :)
