The Legend of Zelda: Link Cosplay Guides

When you talk about The Legend of Zelda video game, you also have to talk about the main protagonist in Link. He is the everlasting hero of the game, having appeared as the main hero of each story of The Legends of Zelda and being the only playable character.

This also makes Link a popular video game character to cosplay in and doing so is not hard to do. Now Link is portrayed as a young and courageous elf-like boy who will mostly wear green clothing with a hat or a hoodie and shin-length boots and carries a sword and shield. His overall appearance may differ from game to game, like in the Breath of Wild game where he carries a bow and arrow instead of just a sword and wears blue clothing, or in the Four Swords, where there are four versions of him wearing different color clothing.

But all-in-all, Link will mostly be wearing green clothing and carrying a sword, which is a bit similar to that of the cartoon character Peter Pan. The creator of The Legend of Zelda admitted that they took some inspiration from Peter Pan when he was designing Link. Let’s guide you how to dress like the Links and rescue your lover Princess Zelda.

Best Breath of the Wild Link Cosplay Guide

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Link is again the main protagonist of the game and lives in a survivalist fashion. This means Link has been living mostly outdoors here in the wild, which is also why his first weapon is that of a bow and arrow. To cosplay his appearance in this game, you will need to wear the full costume or the blue jacket with grey hoodie, khaki pants, and shin-length brow boots.

For the accessories, you would need a blonde wig with elf ears and the Traveler’s Bow and arrow for the weapon. This Breath of the Wild game is very popular for children as well. This costume set also comes with a complete Link Breath of the Wild costume for a child. It’s a good choice for you to cosplay as Link with your children.

About the Breath of the Wild Link Costume

Link’s appearance in Breath of the Wild is one of those rare moments where he doesn’t sport his traditional green clothing and green hat. But that doesn’t mean sporting his appearance here will make you look less like the video game character Link.

As you can see from the photos below, cosplaying Link in this outfit is a great look. The beauty of Link’s appearance here is that it gives you the flexibility to carry both a sword and shield and a bow and arrow as these are the main weapons of the character. You can see that both types of weapon sets will look good with the costume and allow you to showcase a Link that is ready for both close and long-range combat.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is the game where Link has been dubbed as the Hero Chosen by the Gods. What this means is that Link will be the one to free Hyrule from the Twilight King. His trademark appearance here is him wearing his ancestor’s tunic and wielding his legendary sword. This means cosplaying the character will require the green clothing Link is known for, together with his green hat, short blonde hair, and brown boots.

For the accessories, you have the elf ears and Master Sword, which is the final sword that Link uses to defeat his enemies. The Link’s sturdy form sword is over 40 inches, but easy to handle. It is a good choice for cons instead of a real metal sword.

About Twilight Princess Link Costume

Link in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is again sporting his traditional look of wearing green clothing with a green hat and carrying Master Sword. The difference in the clothing here is that he is wearing dark green clothing instead of the usual green of his trademark outfit.

The cosplay photo shows how you can properly sport this costume to look like the popular video game character. You can choose to add the Hylian Shield as an added accessory, or you can just stick to Master Sword only and whichever appearance you choose will work well. One thing you can also notice is that this costume is best worn outdoors with the woods as your background.
