ok, for manifest i'm going as shadow link, anyway i'm doing a skit in it so i'm not doing the whole black skin thing, besides i get allergic reactions to alot of things.

anyway, i was wondering what would look better? black or blonde hair? also should i do his embrodery white for contrast?

example of embrodery is in here, http://larcho.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/link.jpg

I've seen lots of different Shadow Link cosplays with black or white hair, never blonde. The white hair stems from the need for contrast, so if you opt for lighter hair, I suggest you also do white embroidery, with a white undershirt and leggings as well. That way, it stays consistant.

However, in really keeping true to the nature that is Shadow Link, I think opting for darker hair, with the embroidery done in say a light-ish to medium grey, would be best. But that's personal preference.

In the end, it's what you like and what you think looks best that's important!

As for the cap, I used four bobby pins. Two went in the front, about an inch above my temples, and two of them went in the back. Kept it place all day!
