Absolutely Adorable Baby Link Toddler Costume


My husband’s favorite video game is Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. So we cosplayer our daughter as Link. We found the shirt, vest, and shoes pre-loved at a thrift store. I created the sash using brown ribbon. The sword is from a craft store and I cut it down to her size and painted the handle to match the outfit.

Her shield has a core of foam-core board. The shield was covered using sheets of craft foam. I also cut the shield designs from the craft foam sheets. I attached elastic straps through the back of the shield so she could wear it. The brown sash also doubled as a scabbard for the sword. The boots were decorated with grey felt and grey craft foam to emulate the iron boots from the Ocarina of Time game.

A vendor was so impressed with her outfit he gave her a free Triforce button to wear on her costume. She also carried with her 6 Rupees (currency in the Legend of Zelda games). The rupees are flat pieces of wood which I painted to give the illusion that they are real gems.
