Finally new LoZ photos!

That's the second european convention I went. Abunai was a very nice experience with many friendly people and lots of cosplays to appreciate.

:bulletred: IMPORTANT! READ:

Since many people want to know about the costume or acessories, there are some general questions I already answered here below:

Hair or wig?
- It's a wig

Where did you get it?
- 6 years ago in my hometown (Manaus - Brazil) in a fantasy store. It was a very special deal! Back then I didn't know how to buy things via internet.

How did you make your sword and shield? Are they heavy?
They are very light and fragile, so I keep taking good care and maintance. The shield is made basically of paperboard, glue, paint and love. Sword's base is wood.

Where did you buy your elf ears?
I made it by myself using latex.

How did you make the chainmail?
This… and… might help you better than me (:

That's it! Please leave something else as a comment. n_n Thank you!

This is an amazing cosplay! It looks very realistic, everything from the detailed shield to the chainmail. With a lot of Link cosplayers, they have it looking to clean and shiny with silky clothes and a nice shiny shield; you don't have that: you give a very real feel to the costume.

The tunic looks very good, the shield looks like it's been put to good use, and the ears look very realistic. The Master Scabbard looks very good as well.

The one small problem that I have with it is that there are a lot of Link cosplays, on deviant ART and elsewhere, and so the idea is a little overused. But not very many people can pull of the heroic feel like you can.

You made a good observation about the Hylian Shield, indeed I tried to make it looks like used on many battles.
Thank you so much for this critique! I agree with you about many Link cosplays around DA and internet, although I would cosplay him anyway simply because I admire the character so much :D

Thanks again!

Sorry, I can't understand Spanish well, but I guess I got this one enough n_n"
There's indeed quite some effort into it. I'm actually planning on remaking this costume into a better version.

Thanks a lot!
