This is for a contest that one of my friends are holding. To come up with your own design for Vaati. Now I still wanted to keep it as close to his wind mage form as possible but I suppose change things up a bit. Such as the darker colors fit him well, and in my opinion just look more realistic then bright flashy colors in a game or anime. I also wanted to kind of contribute his other forms he has into this. I gave him more eyeballs and small amounts of armor such as on his shoulders like in his rebirth or sorcerer form in Zelda Minish Cap.
So I know I've done a character layout before but didn't nearly go into this much detail, reason being is simply because this is an actuel cosplay design. Meaning is has to be possible. And though I originally went to just say notes I kind of accidentlly made a messy tutorial. feel free to NOT use my notes or suggestions. I do have experience with making plushies and some costumes and stuff so I am very sure that this is possible to make. and again feel free to NOT use my notes, this is just how I simply would go about doing things, and I would probably make some agustments along the way.
Sorry for Spelling, or of you can't read my horrible hand writing. it's so hard to write on a tablet, and no I don't know why I didn't type it out instead. :V if you have any questions on either what I said, or if you want me to re explain something to be more clear feel free to ask me in the comments.
ALSO cosplayer can use this, after all it is on the internet and I can't stop you wither way. lol So it's not just for the contest I'm entering, it is open to everyone. :> I may make this to go to comicon as in a few years or next year or something. :>
