Link is my favorite and will always be. When I first saw the trailer for the new gamecube game, back in march i never blinked.."OMG! he has chainmail!!" and he looked more alive than ever. Link finally gets battle gear. I had to make it. OMG i HAD to make it!!
I spend so many hours studying the artwork and screenshots to get every single detail, all the way down to the stitchmarks. and so much hand work was involved. The hand embroidery on the pouches, and the details on the boots, and tunic ..all over. this thing is loaded! Everything was made to match.
this is by far my master peice!! and im so proud of it. Ive started the costume in march, and got it finished just in time for my debute. I chose neutral colors to make it look more "natural" than using a "christmas green" I worked so hard and spend most of my day at the con working on it getting it finished intime to get it debuted on stage in the masquerade at Animagic. The chainmail took the longest and was completely a time consuming task. No other link costume took me this long to make.
