Legend of Zelda’s Link is a classic costume choice, and everyone does it a little differently. Sammy Simplicity has his own take on the ensemble. He’s been perfecting it for a long time, and he’s really close to the character’s look in Ocarina of Time. He says:
As far as the creation process goes, it’s been years of making and remaking this cosplay. Lol. I think I’ve made this cosplay like 5 times now. Seems like every time I learn a new technique, this is the go-to to practise it on.
The shield is one I purchased, pulled apart, and completely modded. The sword is a foam one that I repainted. The wig and boots were commissioned by friends. The tunics and hats are my work though.
He put a lot of time into looking for the right shades of fabric to match the brightness of Link’s outfit in the game. He used thicker jersey knit.
