Given the Heros Clothes by LiKovacs Given the Heros Clothes by LiKovacs
photo By my dad of
(photo taken in 2005)

as you can tell my title creativeness sucks ^^; lol eh oh well.
finall a pic where you can see the rest of my costume and not just a bust shot lol. :D

pic was taken at Comic Con 2005.

I really love this pic, its also the pic used in my websites layout. Its so calm and ...cant think of the words for it now. its so good.

my weapons were actually layed down next to the water, but you cant see them in this pic.
I really love my boots, they were really difficult to make, but they turned out really awesome.
Chainmail is shown off really well here too. It took me 6months to make it but im happy :dance:

I spent 6months making this costume, but it was totally worth it since Link is my favorite character. So seeing how well my costumes of him turn out make me VERY happy.
This outfit was originally finished in late August of 2004.

also for those of you claiming that those are boobs, no they aren't. If you look closer you can see that its my tunic folding over my belt.

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-09-12
Given the Heros Clothes by *pikminlink. The suggester said that, "This breath-taking cosplay has captured the eyes of thousands of deviants and lots of cosplayers all around the world." I have nothing to add to that other than this is simply the awesomeness that is *pikminlink. Enjoy. ( Suggested by simonsaz3 and Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

Just a small question I have been wanting to make my own twilight princess link costume so I was wondering if you could tell me what materials, tools and methods you used it would be most helpful cause you did a superb job with the outfit. :)

Any tips for costume makers? I would like to cosplay, but I don't know if I can do it.

Kinda scared of making my costume, but I don't feel right, and I can't afford, paying for one to be made for me. Any ideas?

I LOVE YOU as a Link Cosplayer !

I think I did the very first Male-Link Cosplay

auress Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
i think ive seen pictures like this on google!
Ilionej Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2011  Student General Artist
Quite likely. She's present everywhere. Also the statement with "no boobs" is true. She knows how to tame them perfectly. XD
auress Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
i know right! either its the costume or she just tapes down those boobs.

sometimes her cosplays realy inspire me. she is one of the talented and famous cosplayers that i look up to
Ilionej Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Student General Artist
Something like that, I guess. But I rather think it's a sports bra. Something that comes close to a swim suit.
And it's very easy if you have rather small boobs. You can hide them but also make them look totally huge by putting socks into a push-up.(my method to confuse people XD). If you have bigger boobs, hiding is impossible, depending on the costume.
So, I think, smaller boobs are better anyway. They don't hang around every day and aren't that bad for the backbone. ^^;

Are we actually talking about boobs here? :sprint:

Yeah. She's absolutely great and I'm glad that the world noticed her. In my opinion, she's definitely one of those who are a perfect example for what can be achieved my the love and for doing something, as well as that hard, consequent work can still be fun AND lead to stunning results.
auress Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
whats most amazing is that she makes these costumes all by herself, and they come out 100% perfect. pikminlink is ranked like the number 1 cosplayer. the best cosplayer in the whole wide world

anyway, about the boobs, i remember this summer my boobs were realy small from being so skinny. they still are. but if i did a cosplay of kasumi, it be realy hard to have her boobs cuz their REALY HUGE. i think i would need alot of stuffing and prosthetic makeup to have her boobs. but if i can do lina from slayers, i wouldnt have to worry about my boob size at all since their kinda small like hers anyway. and you started the whole boob converstaion. not me.
Ilionej Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Student General Artist
Yes. And she still fears that others might beat her in a voting on OtakuHouse. :nod: That's what I call a humble person.

Oh yeah. She's not like she usually wears clothes in which you could hide tons of socks. XD
Heard about breast imitations? I don't know about availability and actually they're meant for women who had breast cancer, but maybe you could make such?

Lina has a way cooler outfit. Not that I want to tell you what you should do. XD

And actually you started about Li hiding her boobs. :nod: Now you know what it's like when you give me a topic. =P
auress Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
and she looks exactly like link in all her cosplays, that most of the time i forget that shes actually a girl
auress Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
yeah ive seen comments and stuff on her profile. about her and some cosplayer about winning some cosplay contest. im most definately gonna vote for pikminlink since she deserves to win
Ilionej Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2011  Student General Artist
The voting for that recent contest ended two days ago. So we'll see. ^^
And there will be more contest to come for sure. :nod:

this is a great picture, Twilight Princess Link is my favorite. the details on his clothes are simply amazing, and you constantly blow me away on how accurate you costumes are. the location is great too, it could totally be Faron Spring brought to life.

Question, how do you get your hat to stay on?

...hairpins. One each side. If you look closer, you can even see it in this picture. ;)

THIs i would have to say is my favorite picture of them all...the outfit is awesome and the background is great *^_^* im a zelda fan too...but i play the ocarina..instead of make outfits which is reall cool!! :love:
twilightL1nk Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2011
ok, i dont look exactly like the one in the game because my eyes are green instead of blue, but other than that i look exactly like link.(except for the ears, but that would be so cool!)

awesome pictures!
twilightL1nk Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2011
You do look very much like link, but not the one from twilight princess, you look more like the one from ocarina of time (after he grows up) but still nice picture!

People tell me I look like the link from twilight princess, so i should probably make some heros cloths!
catalinhughes Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist Keep it up and you may just have a new stalker :D Nahh, I don't stalk..but you are pretty hawt. Just sayin'.

One question. I'm thinking about making a cosplay of Twilight Princess Link, since he's the most awesome and detailed one so far, and for the life of me I can't figure out a way to make the designs in the corner of his tunic to lay so perfectly. How on Earth did you do it?
Zelbunnii Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
