Blonde bombshell and bearer of the Wind Ring, Linka is an attractive choice of character from the 90’s environmental TV show Captain Planet. From the Soviet Union, the computer expert is the fourth Planeteer to be summoned. Linka studies birds and becomes emotional on the show when pollution harms them. Follow this costume guide and you can pull off Linka’s planet-loving look with just 10 items.
Begin with a 28″ Blonde Wig to copy her blonde hair. Then wear a Planeteer Dark Blue T-Shirt with a pair of White Sierra Crystal Cove River Shorts. Accessorize with a Brown Vest and Vintage Leather Belt Strap. Cap off her look with a pair of Mysocks Royal Blue Socks and Green Converse Chuck Taylors. Of course, you’ll need to add an Amscan Light-Up Gem Ring for the most important part of the costume.
If you’re looking for a beautiful, eco-villain fighting character to cosplay this season, we highly recommend Linka from the 90’s Captain Planet TV show. While much of her look can be gathered from most closets, we suggest ordering a couple of necessary items online. If you’re not the crafty type that can paint Linka’s Planeteer logo on a long sleeve blue t-shirt, you can order it online. A blue light up ring to emulate her Wind Power can also be ordered or picked up at a local costume store.
Linka’s dark khaki shorts and earth-toned vest can easily be found at a thrift shop if you have nothing similar in your closet. For group cosplay, the choices are simple. Fellow Planeteers, Wheeler, Gi, Kwame, and Ma-Ti, would be the first to suggest! Of course, title character Captain Planet is also a great option to join in on the fun.

Linka is not just a pretty face; she has the brains to match. With the power of the wind at her disposal, she uses her gift to keep her team safe and save the lives of others on the popular 90’s show Captain Planet. As a Russian eco-warrior, Linka is bilingual and will often mix Russian words with English, but this is no reflection on her intelligence. The most technologically savvy member of the team, she is a skilled computer hacker. Linka is also the most rational. Blessed with supreme analytical instincts, she often finds the answers to problems amongst logic and reason.
This is not to say, however, that Linka is laid back. She has quite the temper on occasion. Linka’s hobbies include, playing her keyboard and bird watching. Like anyone else, she can sometimes be discouraged when she can’t find a solution. This leads to her feeling upset and helpless. She relies on her friends to lift her up. Perhaps the most surprising fact about Linka is that she is the planeteer most often captured.
