Costume Information

Cost : £140 inc sword and shield
Time Taken : 20 hours

Love the zelda series so much, it never occured to me that i could cosplay Link because I'm a girl, until i saw others do it. Now it has become a dream costume of mine ^^

*EDIT* following a trip to Australia, i aquired many parts for this costuming including a wig and a shirt (alo got bits for my Edea cosplay) so I'll try and post a pic of the wig and prosthetic ears soon...maybe...depending on how brave i feel XD

*edit 2*
okay, I panic bought the first wig and therefore it wasn't right, so I've bought another one which is much better! Also today we started work on the tunic, which is all cut out now, so will be working on that for a couple of days. Really all that is missing now is straps on the vambraces, leggings and the hat ^^

*edit 3*

I'm nearly finished!!!! All I need to do is sort the cheain mail, sew the neck and get the leggings! woohoo!

note* worn again with added chain mail for expo may 09!!!!
