Cosplay Sundae: Link (The Legend of Zelda) Cosplay 23 AUG 2009

Twin Link Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda, also known as The Hyrule Fantasy: The Legend of Zelda is a long-running game franchise designed by Shigeru Miyamoto and developed and published by Nintendo, detailing the exploits of a boy named Link, whose primary aim is to rescue Princess Zelda from Ganon, generally by collecting the eight fragments of the Triforce of Wisdom, a powerful artifact. There’s been about 13 games in the main Legend of Zelda time-line so far (with a combined sales figure of 47 million copies as of 2007), but this is supplemented by a number of spin-offs and related releases, easily making the Legend of Zelda one of the most recognized gaming franchises around the world!

Anyway, back to today’s Cosplay Sundae entry. Link the humble, but brave Hylian warrior boy who is renowned for his swordsmanship, has long pointed ears and is usually decked out in a green tunic and undershirt is the perfect cosplay subject for these two unknown, blonde twins, despite the rather alarming fact that they seemed to have missed – Link is a boy and they… well they have boobies. Nevertheless, they have put together two fantastic costumes and believe it or not, this particular cosplay outing led to them becoming something of an Internet cosplaying phenomenon overnight.

Just goes to show, as long as you look good, put together an excellent costume and just know how to play it up to the crowd, then anything can go in the world of cosplay! ;)
