So, I want to do a fem!Link cosplay....sometime. (Not exactly sure when. XD)
So, to get some ideas, I looked at fanarts and cosplays and stuff that other people did...and I hated it. There seemed to be two options: Link with longer hair and boobs, or impractically exposed female warrior who happens to have a Master Sword and floppy hat. And I didn't want to do either of these because these are the kinds of genderbent cosplays that make other cosplayers hate genderbent cosplays.
And then I had a REALLY awesome idea!
I'm going to make a sweatercoat in the style of Katwise
. Her coats are gorgeous and I've bought the pattern/tutorial. My plan was to make it out of t-shirt (so it wouldn't be so heavy) and about mid-thigh length in various shades of green - with Link's main green for the bodice. I'd make the sleeves white and the bands around the bottom of the skirt would be grey (and then I'd wear white leggings and leather boots with it)
Since this is a little more on the fairy end of things, I think the Master Sword might be a bit inappropriate, though I might do the Deku shield and Kokiri sword. I'd want to have the Hero's bow and would be carrying (and playing) the Ocarina of Time. I'd try to get a wig kind of like his except long, too.
1. Would you guys recognize this as being Link?
2. Could this be mistaken for anything else?
3. Could I do anything in particular to make this more recognizable?
4. Opinions? Suggestions? Anything? I mostly want to know what people will think about this before I go out and get twenty-five or thirty T-shirts.
