If I reached for your hand... by scowlingelf If I reached for your hand... by scowlingelf
I've been on a Majora kick lately. Not entirely sure why.
Felt like doing my own take on Kafei and Anju's designs. I think all that Soul Calibur I was playing when I started this pic influenced me more than I originally realized, however... :/ Went through several iterations, too... this is composition 3.5, I think.

And yes, I do like naming pictures after song lyrics. ;)

They're great together, aren't they? Almost like they were meant to be together… XD

*Plays the Carol Burnett show ending theme* 

Totally. xD 

I remember the first time I played Majora's Mask itself. Good times. World was a little more normal then. xD

Ocarina of Time was amazing, too; but I prefer Majora's Mask. I find the gameplay mechanic and storyline to be a little more original in it. 
And it's got Anju and Kafei's love-torn sidequest! 

Let's not forget the little girl and her Gibdo-fied dad. Sad, and dark game. xD

Ikana Canyon itself was just dark. Sharp's curse, Igos du Ikana. Jeez.

Thank you so much, they're awesome characters, aren't they?

I absolutely love your interpretation of Kafei's adult outfit. It's probably my favorite. I really kind of want to make it... at least his vest... with your permission, of course!

Thank you very, very much! You can certainly make it, as long as you credit me and post pictures so I can squee over it. Deal? Ooh, I suppose in that case I should post a clearer 'shot'...

Of course I'd give as many credits as you'd like! Including (knowing the cosplayer who'd wear it) a giant sign "linking" back to your page or something lol.

:iconscowlingelf:
scowlingelf Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
Oh, that's super-nice of you! I was just thinking a link if you posted it online and saying 'oh, it's someone on DA's design' if anyone asked in-person, so whatever works for you (I know signs aren't exactly the best cosplay accessory).

Absolutely, it would be my pleasure to reference back! But I can still see my friend making the sign lol (he's kind of a nut). I hope this happens soon, especially since I'm itching to cross stitch the trim on Anju's skirt mmmmm.

I really like your interpretation... I think my favorite part of the picture is actually the angle it's at... it feels as if Anju is being sucked away from Kafei... like they can't be together, even though they want to be...

It's a very touching image. Thanks for sharing!
