Hey, listen! It’s my DIY Link costume
Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. The goblins. The ghouls. The Tootsie Rolls. The opportunity to dress in cosplay. It’s incredibly fun.
My favorite costume, as an adult at least, is this Link outfit you see above. It’s fairly simple compared to some of the more detailed Zelda-inspired costumes I’ve seen. The tunic is just green fabric sewn together with a small slit near the collar-bone. The hat is the same fabric, stuffed with a small amount of tissue paper so it would keep its body while remaining flexible.
The more detailed aspects were the shield, bow and arrows, boomerang, and sword. Again opting out of spending a fortune on detailed weaponry, I simply cut and painted foam core. It was definitely the cheapest option, though they’re all a little rough around the edges. Here’s a picture of my interpretation of Link’s array of weaponry below.
