Costume Information

So I've wanted to do a LoZ cosplay for years, but always put off doing one becuase I worry I won't do it justice. Now I've decided I don't care that much and am going to cosplay Link regardless of how badly I do.

It won't be an exact copy of any one version as I'm trying to do this cheaply, but a lot of the details seem to come from the Twilight Princess version.

Sword and shield (Posted 26th February 2014)

My partner bought a very basic wooden master sword a few years back, but it broke very quickly, so had been left in the loft. I've now stolen it for my master sword. I've sanded off the painted detailing on the sheath, added new foam detailing that's more accurate to the reference piccies, and have just to shape the blade and repair the handle.
The hylian shield is made from EVA foam with craft foam details and fabric handles and will be painted soon.

Armguards (Posted 26th February 2014)

As the TP armguards look easier to make than the OoT gloves, I've gone for them. These are made out of craft foam using the iron and shoe polish method to make them look a bit leathery.
