Description
I've kinda wanted to cosplay this version of Link for a year or so (because we had an Elf Day at school for Christmas xD) but didn't have material )=
But tis a simple costume that can be made fairly quickly, I have a wig that would work nice, and Toon Link is one of my best characters on Brawl xP
Not sure which color I'll make...either green, blue or red, but I dunno...

Maybe this costume will inspire me to finally complete WindWaker!

I am on a Zelda high, I swear. I will get this done this year, no doubt, I flippin' love Spirit Tracks and the other LoZ games I'm playing at the moment.
I'm definatly working on this over the summer!

Okay, can't afford Aya. I'm not sure why I thought I could >__> I need to spend my money on other things >< But! Link's now planned for Japan Expo, so yey! I shall be the traditional green! =3

Japan Expo was amaaaazing! Got some nice shots and had lots of fun! I lost my buckle within the first few minutes of getting to the Expo, so I have to remake that AND find a new way to attach it! xD

HOW HAVE YOU NOT COMPLETED WINDWAKER O.o!? XD
I think you should go for the panflute as its a different tool and if its a summer one then go for the fan to keep you cool :)

Either way cant wait to see if finished!

Thanks so much everyone, I appreciate everyone word! <3

@Harajuku-Guy: I got the game before I became obsessed with Zelda, so when I got stuck I just left it...now I'm too into the others to get to it! xD

Journal

It dyed (Posted 30th June 2011)

I finally bucked up the courage to dye my tunic and cap today....and it worked just fine! I'm so pleased! It's a shade or two darker than the usual green, but I'd rather it too dark than too light. I was terrified it it being too light, so I dumped all the dye in and a crapton of salt and left the pieces in there for ages xD But the shade is one that some incarnation of Link has worn before, and it goes nicely with the shirt material, so it's all good!

Currently...
Waiting for the tunic and cap to dry
Working on the decorations on the flute
Making the buckle
Pondering whether to make the shirt a functionable shirt (HEAT AUGH) or to just sew sleeves onto the tunic (more sewing)

Hmm... (Posted 24th June 2011)

So, the plan was to start and finish the cap and tunic this week, but it turns out the dye I have doesn't dye polyester...that's all fine and good, my fabric is some kind of cotton, but my thread is 100% polyester >< I dunno if it won't dye the thread since it's well...thread, and much smaller than clothing which this dye is meant to be used for, but I don't want to risk it...So I'll buy some cotton thread this weekend if I can, then get this finished up on Tuesday or something! =3 Only downside is this means no pretty photos of Link by the sea in Calais...ahwell. I'll bring him to Meze or something to make up for it.

Currently...
Making the belt buckle (which looks crap)
Testing out methods for making thr panflute using strong paper and tea bags
I'll make/finish the belt right after this entry....*goes to do that*

Thanks for the comments, guys! <3
