How to Dress Up As Link from Legend of Zelda

So, you want to know how to dress up as your favorite hero from "The Legend of Zelda?" Just follow these easy steps!


  1. Decide which Link you want to be. There are over 10 different Links in the series, so this may be a tough choice. The most recognizable Link is the one from Ocarina of Time.

  2. Get a green nightcap. If you cannot find one, a green wizard hat may work too. If you have any spare fabric, measure your head and cut 2 long triangles. Then sew the fabrics to make a hat. If you're wearing a wig, measure them too.Dress%20Up%20As%20Link%20from%20Legend%20of%20Zelda%20Step%202.jpg
  3. Wear a collared, long-sleeve white shirt. If you don't have one, you can use a non-collared shirt and sew a collar on.Dress%20Up%20As%20Link%20from%20Legend%20of%20Zelda%20Step%203.jpg
  4. Put a green tunic over the white shirt, and must be longer than white shirt. You can get a tunic pattern from a fabric store and modify it or use an over sized t-shirt as a pattern. If you're going as the Twilight Princess Link, make a bigger tunic from fabric that looks like chainmail.Dress%20Up%20As%20Link%20from%20Legend%20of%20Zelda%20Step%204.jpg

  9. If you don't have blonde hair, try wearing a wig! Also remember that Link has long hair (for a guy anyway). The Twilight Princess and the Skyward Sword Link has short blond hair.Dress%20Up%20As%20Link%20from%20Legend%20of%20Zelda%20Step%209.jpg
  10. Put on fake elf ears (If you don't have elf ears, try using papier-mâché). Elf ears can be bought from a costume store too.Dress%20Up%20As%20Link%20from%20Legend%20of%20Zelda%20Step%2010.jpg
