Link is the main protagonist of Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda video game series and one of the most well-known gaming characters of all-time. He is said to be a teenage character not much older than nineteen. He goes on adventures roaming vast lands and deep dungeons collecting treasure and battling evil. His blue outfit and young age bear striking resemblance to Peter Pan from whom Link’s creator took inspiration. Follow this guide to cosplay Link’s look from the latest Zelda—Breath of the Wild video game.
To dress up like Link, first, wear a Link Cosplay Wig to give yourself the same hairstyle. Next, get the Latex Alien Elf ears to make yourself look like an elf. After that, wear your incredible blue Link Costume, Link Brown Boots, and Link Belt. Finally, equip yourself with the weaponry to battle dark forces like the Wooden Viking Shield, the Sword of Time, and Recurve Bow.
There is a reason why Link is so popular! His heroic feats combined with his young age makes him a highly inspiring character to cosplay. As the story of Zelda takes place in a fictional land, we highly doubt you’ll have any of his clothing lying around. Dressing up is the best part about this cosplay. The only additional thing to consider is working on your sword and shield movements.
If you want to make things more interesting, you can team up with your friends to create an extremely fun, Nintendo themed cosplay. Your friends can dress up like Princess Zelda, Mario, Luigi, Ganon, Toad, or Donkey Kong. This amazing cosplay could be your best one ever!

Link might be more relatable to you than you think. Every story starts with him dozing off or resting, hinting that he may be a little lazy. But when danger calls and he has to save the world, he transforms into a lethal warrior. His skills with a sword and shield are unmatched, often defeating opponents much bigger than him. He is also extremely clever, quickly interpreting complex machines and puzzles blocking his path. More so, he can also use new weapons without any training.
Link is responsible for saving the Princess Zelda countless times. But, what makes him so amazing is his immense courage, deep goodness, and his incredible fighting skills. His selflessness is so great that he sometimes helps those who were his former enemies. His latest adventure can be found in the new video game, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, on the Nintendo Switch.
