Completely Utterly New, Thinking about a LoZ cosplay

Hello everyone! As the title says, I'm completely new to this sort of thing. I've never cosplayed nor been to any sort of con. I also love the Legend of Zelda series/franchise.

Now, I was thinking that I'd like to attempt to some sort cosplay from the series. I would like to cosplay someone I resemble, but seeing as I'm new to this sort of thing and probably not a very good judge on possible characters, I decided I could try a character I know and love.

In regards to that, I'm leaning on doing a female Link. I have dark long brown hair (I don't really plan on buying a wig for my first attempt), and I'm wondering that, if I go to a con or something of the sort, will this be a problem? Obviously, I'm doing this for fun! So, I understand that this doesn't really matter, but I'm curious.

As for the actual outfit, I was planning on doing a mix of the Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword version's of Link. I'm aware that these versions can be more difficult to create for someone completely new. The good thing is I don't have any time constraints. I'm not planning on attending anything anytime soon. I'd just like to have a good-looking outfit and to use it whenever it gets done.

So, what do you think? Go for it?

Since you're doing an original take on Link, you don't really need a wig since this costume is what you want to be. If it's something you're comfortable doing, and it'll make you happy; go for it!

The great thing about Link is that if you have a green shirt, green hat, and brown boots, you are Link. No questions asked. PiC made a version of Link that included a beanie. You can have a genderbent Link with your own brown hair.
