( *edit* but i guess i should add this part^^;
The costume was made by me, and it took me 6 months to make because I made my own chainmail shirt ^_^
I finished the Costume in August of 2004. So its a pretty old outfit already. but its still good. :)
Its also been featured in Nintendo Power. as well as my other Link and nintendo costumes. ^^ )

I was Advertizing Twilight Princess at the Nintendo Booth at E3 as Link and Zelda. I was not just cosplayers who decided to show up at the event and cosplay, I got permission from both Nintendo and the board of E3 before the event began, and there were rules I had to follow. The Nintendo staff treated us with so much respect. and ofcourse the Wii was awesome. hehe

I met Shigeru three times during the event. The first time I were called over, and his translator introduced me to him, and the other two times he came over to me. We spent a lot of time chatting, and taking photos. He signed my shield, hat, and tunic. And he took his picture.
This pic was taken in the "Invitation Only" section at the Nintendo booth. its pretty much impossible to meet him outside of that area.
I was able to go back there when we needed to take a break, and get some snacks, food, drinks, or ice cream. hehe.
Iwata was also back there. NOA, NOE, and nintendo of japan were also there, and they all loved the costumes.
He was very happy when he saw me in the costume, and the word spread quickly around nintendo.

Shigeru and I are the exact same height. (except my neck is bent abit forward in this pic) And I find it funny that we posed the exact same way. Miyamoto also Based a lot about Link off himself. :)

Advertising Twilight Princess went so well that even PS3 booth attendies started coming over to the nintendo booth, the Nintendo booth was crowded!

I cant wait for next years E3. Something big is happening in 2007!

Note ***
E3 Is a TRADE SHOW event only** No cosplay. Got permission from Nintendo and E3 to wear the costume at the Nintendo Booth to advertise Twilight Princess. ***

Please dont cosplay at e3 unless your allowed. Its not a cosplay event.***
