The name Link alludes to multiple personifications of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda series. One of their most iconic characters, Link has been featured in comics, a cartoon series, and of course the classic video game. Following our simple guide, we can send you on your way to save Princess Zelda in five easy steps.
First, we recommended a Men’s Legend of Zelda Link Costume and a Short Yellow Link Cosplay Wig. We also went with a comfy pair of Men’s Dress Boots and a Zelda Sword Leather Belt Strap. We finish off his look with an official Zelda Triforce Shield.
Attention all classic cosplayers! Legendary Nintendo character, Link has been a cosplay favorite since the late 1980’s. That’s a long run of success. To pull off his look, you can easily purchase his costume at a local shop or online. There is fun to be had for any artistic DIYers. Links’ signature shield can be created using any number of craft supplies. Of course, if you’re not gifted in that way, you can order it online as well.
A sword can be purchased or made, depending on your level of skill. For group endeavors, you can include any of The Legend of Zelda characters like Princess Zelda or the evil Ganon. However, in the spirit of fun, it might also be neat to include other Nintendo classic characters like Mario or Donkey Kong to name a couple. Make sure you look at our featured pics for more ideas. Send in your own as well and show up what you come up with!
Starting his journey as a child and thus far no older than a teenager, despite the time passed, Link is no less a hero. His courage is his guide. A humble and hard worker, he seems destined to save the kingdom of Hyrule and countless others. Only seldom does he show any signs of cowardice and he more than makes up for it with his willingness to help others in need.
Despite Link not having any written dialog, he is not actually mute. In The Wind Waker he shouts “Come on!’ multiple times and invariably will grunt or shout to make an important point. Sometimes described as the immersion experience, his silence allows players to lend their own personifications to their character, allowing anyone to connect with our silent hero. A trait that seems to follow Link even in his silence, is his love of sleep. Also known to be left handed he is also an incredible swordsman.
