The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Last Updated: 08-15-2006
Well, my sister's school had a spirit week coming up and she told me Thursday that she needed a "cartoon character" by Tuesday. She had decided on Link due to a few things: she had similar boots, we had a blonde wig, and she had found a green dress that I could modify for his tunic. ^_^;; So pretty much everything about this costume is ghetto...
Tunic, shirt, hat - altered/made from thrift store items (hat made out of a yellow t-shirt and the arms of the green dress for the tunic, heh)
Wig - Joshua cosplay
Boots - owned
Belt - made from scraps laying around my dorm, including buckle
Shield - cardboard, piece of craft foam, and paints that were laying around
Slingshot - Usopp cosplay
So, it may not be perfect, but it worked out great for what we needed, lol. There are some things I would like to fix/add before using it at a con, though. First, the skirt is longer since she's the teacher and doesn't want to be a bad example, lol. So I'd want to shorten it. Second, The wig isn't perfect. I'd want to add some extensions in front of the ears at least. And lastly, Link needs his sword - I just didn't have time to make it. ^_^;;
EDIT: It now needs a new sheild as well. The old one got left in my car and baked for days... Let's just say it kind of melted away. ^_^;;;;;
So yeah, not perfect, but fun nonetheless. ^_~
