Post-Halloween Costume Roundup

DjinnNovember 2nd, 2012 by Djinn

Well another Halloween has come and gone this year with many Zelda fans of all ages turning out to show off their creative skills with the costumes they made. It looks like this year there was quite a turnout among the fans as there are many a Link and Zelda seen here today. Some fans have even come dressed up as several other characters from the series as well.

Jump in to see the costumes.

While there are a lot of various Links and Zeldas, which are to be expected, I loved how many others branched out and made costumes for some of the other characters as well. There were a few Shieks, Sarias and even a skull kid and Groose. There was a lot of creativity involved and I love to see what level of ingenuity went into their costumes.

So what do you think? Did you like the costumes? Do you have a favorite? Let us know in the comments below.

    i made a link costume for my freind. my mom spent an hour sewing the link hat!

    • spidertiger7

      I make my mom suffer for making the sword shield tunice boots and the hat………….. I EVIL

      • Cucco Link

        The first time I went as Link, my sister sewed the hat and the sword and shield,and I made the tunic and the pants. Now, however I can make way better of a Link costume than that, so I’ve made two swords and four shields, One hat, added more to the tunic… I basically make the whole thing now.

  • anonymous

    I’m sad…no one dressed as Ganondorf or Linebeck…

    • faror

      ya and no one dressed as ghirahim. i wonder why?

      • Demise

        Maybe dressing up as a sword is a bit too hard…

        • spidertiger7

          uh yea

        • Waker of Winds

          yeah your right…
          I mean imagine walking in that thing every time you bent down to get a piece of candy you would skewer the person behind you

          • zeldafangirl

        • itsameluigi1290

          You, sir, are a genius.

      • anonymous

        maybe they didn’t want to be mistaken for Lady GaGa? i got mistaken for Peter Pan last year…

        • Waker of Winds

          uugghh being mistaken as lady gaga?? there are few horrors greater

          • anonymous

            no kidding!

        • Hylia

          One of the rude people I know was like, “Hey, what are you supposed to be, Peter Pan?” and I was Link. I just walked away XD
          I got some of “Oh, you’re Zelda, right?” but a lot of people knew I was Link.
          “You’re Link? Sweet!” XD

          • Cucco Link

            One of the rude people said the EXACT same thing to me last year.

            I honestly should have just said,”Well excuuuuuuuuse me, princess.” lol

          • anonymous

            LOL

          • anonymous

            no one was rude about it to me, but everywhere i went, they thought i was Peter Pan. I eventually just said, “okay, since when does Peter Pan have the Master Sword?!?!?”

          • spidertiger7

            lol

            When I was thirteen I dressed as Link and got the same crap. I was almost sick of it until two five-year-olds ran up and starting going nuts; “Oh my gosh, you’re LINK! You’re so awesome, how you do that spin attack and…” …Yeah, they just gushed for a few minutes. It made my night, especially since they seemed to think I actually was the guy. I wanted to give their parents a hug :3

          • The Hylian Monolith

            Yay! I want to be you every once in a while… That’s such a great story.

            :3 agreed!

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Best/100003863840372 James Best

        No one is fabulous enough.

    • spidertiger 7

      i aggree everybody it is HALLOWEEN good guys BOOO bad guys YEA

      • The Hylian Monolith

        Are you trying to imply taht Linebeck is an antagonist? Everyine may ahtehim ath teh beginning, but he turns out all right.

        Go Groose! Why didn’t I thingk of that?!? Well, my ST Ghost Zelda costume turned out amazing, so I’m all right. Might go as Majora’s Inspiration next year…i.e., wear a normal purple shirt and blue jeans, then rip them up revealing bloody scars, odd scales, and shiny skin bebeath the fabric and on some places on my arm. Put soot and blood in your hair, wear your clay Majora’s Mask…uh, mask, and you’ve got yourself the freakiest remixed Zelda costume to hit Alaska since 1987. Yes, I chose that date specifically.

      • Rob

        Well there is Skull kid from Majora’s mask.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Best/100003863840372 James Best

      Say, I might dress up as Linebeck next year! Good idea!

  • itsameluigi1290

    Not a huge fan of the girl Links (Like the second to last one, she’s trying to act a little too sexy), but the rest are pretty good.

    • H37I

      i think that was supposed to be saria.

      • itsameluigi1290

        The one above Saria, I meant.

        • H37I

          ohhh, yeah, i see what you mean.

  • Midna’s Sister

    I was Zelda x] it was a blue-and-white dress, but I got my long long hair to work okay!

  • baileygirl99

    Coolness!!! I made my costume, but I finished it ON Halloween.

    • spidertiger7

      lol

  • zombie_eat_flesh

    If I had dressed up as Slender Man with a Link hat, would that still count?

    • itsameluigi1290

      Who’s Slender Man?

      • zombie_eat_flesh

        You don’t want to know. It’s creepy…

        • itsameluigi1290

          h, ok.

    • Legend of Zelda

      My brother went as slenderman this Halloween!

  • superspecialawesome

    My friends and I saw a toddler dressed as Link while we were trick or treating, and he was sooooo cute! I wanted to hug him, but I think I scared him a little… So I told him he had awesome parents and that he should cherish them.

  • spidertiger7

    i like the skull kid

  • spidertiger7

    groose……………PLEASE MAKE ME GET OFF THIS COMPUTER AND SCREAM FOR HOW STUPID AND MEAN GROOSE IS

  • Legend of Zelda

    The second to last one is SO CUTE!!!
    My best friend went as Link last year. Is it weird that she’s a girl?

  • BigGerudoNose

    These are so Awesome!
    Me and my friend both went as Link (Me as SS, her as WW)
    …some guy thought we were Tinkerbell 0.o

    • ElizabethBathog

      Cool and i now what you mean. When i was on a anime convent this summer, i was cosplaying as Meta Knight and 2 boys called me batman! XD

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/James-Best/100003863840372 James Best

    I dressed up as Spike from MLP:FiM this year. Not a Zelda character, but it’s the first time I dressed up for Halloween in a long time.

  • TheLinkGanon

    i was link for holloween

    • Cucco Link

      yay

  • Amber Evans

    I think the little boy in the 2nd to last picture is the cutest
    Look at that smile, so happy to be Link
    I’m working on my own costume for Link right now
    Although I’m not afriend to wear it on whenever I want too
    It so doesn’t have to be Halloween for me
    Link is just that EPIC.

    • Cucco Link

      You should just roll around on the sidewalk. That would be awesome.

      • Amber Evans

        If only it were that easy…

        • Cucco Link

          I’m sorry, I believe you misunderstood. I mean dress up as Link, and THEN roll around. Sorry about that.

          • Amber Evans

            No, I understood you. I mean’t if only it were that easy to roll around. I mean, have you ever tried it? It’s harder than it looks…

          • Cucco Link

            Really? Maybe I’m just good at rolling around or something, because it’s not that hard to me.

          • Amber

            Yeah, lets see you roll around over and over and over and over again like we all do to torture Link
            And if you can, kudos to you

  • SquadalaCarpetGuy

    Some of these girls…
    Just instantly hot for being a Zelda fan. Damn I feel like a pedophile now :p

  • BlazinHope

    i think mine link costume is better but there all great! if your going to anime evolution tomorrow at british columbia, burnaby in sfu look for me ill be in my link costume my tunic is a dark olive green

  • Blakenator

    I am just happy one person in this gallery decided to dress as Groose. Groose is hilarious! :)

    • Zeldatrek

      I didn’t recognize Groose at first without his signature hair

  • ninetales

    I have to say those costumes are pretty cool but I am disapointed that none of the kids (or almost none of them) have long hair….I also dressed up as link (I am 13) but I didn’t have a hylian shield it was only a wooden one but I have long hair and I play a little ocarina so that helped

  • Cucco Link

    I’m going to FINALLY finish my master sword!!! After Halloween. God. Dang it.

  • Person

    I was Navi for Halloween, but I didn’t put much effort into it. I just a white shirt and spray painted all around the outside blue, and sharpie-d HEY! LISTEN!!! REALLY big in the middle, with white pants and an old pair of fairy wings.

  • crabshampoon

    why do i find girl links so hot?

    • anonymous

      that, sir, is an excellent question. i have no answer to it, therefore, it is amazing.

    LOL Where is Darunia? I was hoping for a Darunia.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.dipalma Jordan DiPalma

      You do realize that’s one of the least likely costumes you’re ever going to see someone do, right?

  • Neutopia

    There definitely seemed to be a lot of Sheik costumed too aha. :P
    Not sure which is my favorite, it’s cool that they all dressed up like that though, they did a great job! :P

  • http://www.facebook.com/jordan.dipalma Jordan DiPalma

    The guy in row 3, column 3 has the right idea: Skyward Sword link’s outfit transfers to real life the best. Sorry, but the tights have a tendency of ruining a lot of Link costumes (or insuring endless PETER PAN comments) for me. When I finally pull together a good costume, I’m opting for SS Link’s style.

  • MegustaZelda

    My favorite is the guy who dressed up as Zelda and the girl who dressed as Link XD

  • Zelda_Player

    its very nice maybe thhey could make a movie…

    Thats cute …

  • Sage of Winds

    *Sheik standing in front of a TV showing Hyrule Feild*
    Seems legit.

  • lisa

    I hope it’s not too late. My dad and I collaborated on this hand-sewn costume! https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-ZxKIjNAGaRs/UJLl44-_etI/AAAAAAAAA7A/o-lWfwNiD00/w497-h373/2012-11-01
