All the stuff that goes into my costume except the chainmail and ear rings:


tunic and undershirt:


Hat and boots, the boots were custom made for me by a ukraine company, now just one small problem with these boots, THEIR BLACK!


The belt pouches


The left arm bracer


The ears which were made by http://www.aradani.com awesome company and the best ears of this size I've ever seen.


The buckles, great story here. I searched for months to find the two larger ones with no luck. Then on the night of the con we went to wal-mart to get food. We randomly hit up the men's belts and there are two HIDEOUSLY ugly belts, one was like 75% grommets of varying sizes that were random ugly colors. The other was one that looked like it had taken a week to make out of tiny strips of leather but in a really ugly color. But attached to said hideous belts were the PERFECT buckles for what I needed. The small one I just bought at tandy leather.


EDIT I have found the original Fugly belt that the buckle came from that I thought had met the trashcan at the hotel we stayed at.


Ah the decritive button in the middle of the chest. How I hated looking for this thing. You'd think that finding a brass colored stylized flower button would be easy. But Noooooooo..... It took forever to find it. The worst part is that wal-mart had a sign spaming about buttons and snaps. And on said sign was the PERFECT button for what I needed. (Even better than this one) But did they actualy stock said button? Nope, I tried 5 different wal-marts and none had said button. I finally found this one which was close but not perfect lsitting on a peg in hancocks behind a plastic cat button.


The shoulder cover, on the bandoleer. Unfortunatly we ran out of snaps for this and had to use some back up ones that didn't match. The snaps are to hold the sword sheath's holding piece to my back.

The gloves and bracers:


Triforce detail. While not actually accurate to anything, you have to put your own little touches right?

I think I just came. o.o

You have lots of time to do things that intricate. You did all of your own leatherwork, I assume?

Yeah its all done by either me or my room mate in the leather besides the gloves and boots. I modifed the gloves but I did not make the basic structure of them.

There was alot of stuff on here that we stared at the art and realized "Hey that looks cool, does it actually work in real physics? NO!" Like the shoulder belt with a sword hanging on it not being connected to the waist belt for support..... We tried it as seen in the game. It dug sharply into my neck in seconds. Also if you look at some of my other pictures you'll see that the hat is bobby pinned to my hair in about 6 places. It would NOT hold to your head without them. Next that left arm bracer, while extremely cool looking designed as it is in the game (and in real life in this case) made movement of the left hand and wrist extremely limited. There is no way you could propperly sword fight with that thing on. No way link could be left handed and use a sword with that on.

Anyone interested in more details of the making of this I am willing to answer anything about it. (that I remember)

I wanted to see what more people thought of this costume and what I need to improve? I plan to wear it again when I pick up my Wii and I was wondering if anyone sees anything I should instantly replace. Here is a shot of it actually on me.
