Looks great! Love me some royal blue too :P
It definitely takes a bit of finesse, and took me some practice too. My biggest advice is to not worry about the looks of the knot until you are finished getting the pieces in the right place. The key to getting it to look good is to be patient while working excess out of the knot. Tightening it a bit at a time to make each piece look the same pays off at the end; you don't have to get it full tightness on the first pass.
For a zipper pull you could have both ends be inside the knot, and use one of the middle loops to attach (either in the actual loop - hard, or using a larks head to attach - easy). You could also use a thinner rope and smaller (or no) core if you find the paracord version to be a bit big.
