Over the past 25 years of experiencing the Zelda series we have witnessed many, many different Links. Each with their own look, style and slight differences in personality. There is no doubt that we will ever run out of Links to dress up as (such as in cosplay) and I’m sure there have been plenty of people have already done so. Who wouldn’t want to dress up like our favorite Hylian hero?
Walking around in a green tunic and cap with the Master Sword and Hylian Shield would make any fan look pretty badass, right? Or does it depend on the effort put into the costume? A video was recently created by Ucutanimis on YouTube claiming that dressing up like Link actually doesn’t make you look badass. Make the jump to view the video!
I understand that this video is a joke of past experiences but lets take it seriously for a moment. In my experience of being a cosplayer myself I have seen plenty of other Links from many different games and people of many different ages, overall the costumes I’ve seen are very well done, a lot of effort and time obviously put into them. However there were some costumes that were hard to tell if the person was Link or just an elf.
What do you think? Does dressing up like Link make you look like a badass? Or just someone with a big obsession for a video game? (But of course when you’re running around with pantyhose on your head and no pants on there is no doubt you’re going to look stupid!)
