Link Twilight Princess

Hey guys,

I am seeking a more opinions on the construction of my Twilight Princess Link cosplay.

I realize that usually Link wears white tights, but I am looking at this reference picture:

It looks like they are more like a light charcoal rather than white. Also, they look more like "skinny jeans" type of thing rather than tights. What do you think?

I would call them greige, or grey-beige. And yes, they don't appear skintight like leggings. If you want accuracy, find a pants pattern in the same style. Or modify/dye a pair of khakis.

Don't wear jeans, as they won't look right, IMO.

I agree with PSY-chan on the color. And in Twilight Princess, since Link was grown, they went more with the close fitting pants instead of tights. I would just get a pants pattern that fit closely but wasn't made to be tight and use that. You could do a zipper or elastic waistband since neither would be visible under the tunic.
