No matter what new challenges appear, what new evil rises from the shadows. Our Hero will always be ready to defend Hyrule.


Another addition to my poster series.
MAGIC ARMOR! I always see the Magic Armor as being like an Armor of a Hylian Knight. When I first saw it I had to make it. So...Finally I got a pic up LOL. It's been almost a year since I first wore this costume but never posted any pictures anywhere because I was waiting for a particular location to do a photoshoot at. I finally was able to last week at a really nice Cathedral, so here it is. My dad was the photographer and we took good advantage of the location.
Magic Armor is from Twilight Princess (I am surprised at how many people DIDN'T know about this version and also thought I was Princess Zelda in armor. Really? = Seriously people. It doesn't even look like Zelda except for the shoulder armor. But the hat, sword, and shield and chainmail are a complete giveaway that this is Link).
I've worked on this costume on and off for a few years. I put it on hold for a while too because I needed a break from it. Spent 5 months making the new chainmail (My regular Heros Garb chainmail took 6 months) for this one and the armor was a huge trial and error process. There were some parts that I had to remake over and over until it was right.
I started on it right after Twilight Princess came out and I had all of the reference images that I needed to start and finish the costume. No.. I didnt run out of rupees xD

Throughout the years I've been doing what I can to bring Link and his world of Hyrule to life.

Costume was started 2006/2007. Worked on and off. Completed 2010.

This deviant is well known for their spectacular Link cosplay, and this piece is no exception. The beautiful armor, the lovely background, the all adds up to them bringing a beloved character to life. Well done.

May I ask how you did your shield?
I've been looking around for a good tutorial when I stumbled upon your picture, and I'm just blown away at the moment.
Amazing job with the paint-job as well!

A fine looking Cosplay! I've always been a Zelda fan ever since Ocarina of Time, and Twilight Princess happens to be another of my favorites!
