Making every part of a costume can be rewarding and a good challenge, but if you decide to purchase accessories and props, it doesn’t make you any less of a cosplayer. If you need to fill in the gaps on your Legend of Zelda Link costume, Merchoid is here to help. The officially licensed vendor has cosplay accessories including Link’s bracers, the Hylian shield, and the Master Sword. The items are priced affordably (in the $30 range), and you get what you pay for. The sword and shield are made from “high quality plastic” while the bracers are sold separately and made from leather and metal. You could wear them as is or use them as a base and add paint, embellishments, weathering, etc. It’s always nice to have more options.
You can purchase all these items and more at Merchoid — the sword and shield are both pre-order items scheduled to ship in July.
