Modern Casual Zelda Cosplays

So my friends and I had this idea that doing some modern casual Zelda cosplay outfits. Kind of bringing Zelda out of the "medieval" time period and into modern times. This is just our thought right now and we don't really have outfit ideas for any characters except for Sheik since I'm a Sheik-a-holic.
So my idea for Sheik is tight fitting black jeans, a form fitting t-shirt, a cream colored knit scarf with the Sheikah symbol on it, a cream colored knit hat, and converse like sneakers. I'd keep Sheik's hair style more or less the same. For jacket my friend suggested a black leather jacket or a peacoat. By the way yes I do treat Sheik as a male character.

What are your thoughts on this kind of thing and what are your thoughts on what any given character would wear? I want this to be fun for everyone and seriously no one can possibly be "wrong" or "right" since there are no canon designs for this. ^-^

I love this idea! I have been considering doing something similar, based on this artwork of Link, Ganon, and Zelda.

This is a really cool idea. I like your idea for Sheik and the Zelda and Link concepts that Suzie posted.

Ganondorf's concept is, in my opinion, not dark or menacing enough to fit the personality of a villain. I'd still with a black color palette for him and go with a trench cloak to replace the cloak he's generally portrayed with. I think a biker or goth theme could suit his character well.

Yeah I agree on the Ganon design it needs to be darker and a trench coat would do nicely.

I've actually started on getting things together for my modern casual Sheik. My friends mom is crocheting a scarf for me with the Sheikah symbol on it. Once I get everything together I'll take some pictures and post them up. ^-^

There are actual people that do this already if you need inspiration. I found this blog:

But then again, I feel like I remeber better links then that.

I'm totally pregnant too, but it's not stopping me from getting everything ready for it. XD
Heck once my mini cosplayer is out, I plan on hoping right back on the cosplay trail.

I like this idea myself mainly because I look like Link so much already without any makeup, hair dye, hair gel, wig, and even ears.

I did something similar with my Sheik cosplay. I had a shirt I was going to use instead of the tabard lookin' thing, but I screwed up the paint job. My Link did a better job with a green button down and a beanie.

The cool thing about these characters is that they're so timeless that you can do pretty much anything with them.

IF you want to follow, there are already fashion geek blogs that compile a supply list for you. At this point, even though costume is fashion, its leaning toward high fashion, or just wearing modern day clothing.

I remeber a skater cosplay art somewhere. Its been awhile since I looked at casual cosplay.
