What adventures await you over the horizon? by Malindachan What adventures await you over the horizon? by Malindachan
Another amazing photo from Joseph of my Skyward Sword Link! I really liked how this shot looked when he showed it to me at Katsucon, so I'm really happy he posted it!

Cosplay made and worn by me :iconmalindachan:

I am considering cosplaying as Link, and seeing this just fills me with so much feels- I have been and still am a die-hard fan of the LoZ series, and you here simply look amazing as Link! Please keep up the lovely work!

Wow.. This is just. Too amazing for words.
I am a long-time die-hard fan of the Zelda series, and have always dreamed of wearing such cosplay. You inspire me. So much.

I-I have a very long journey before I can be an amazing Link cosplayer like you.. ;v;

Could I have the honor of recieving your advice, or tips, on accomplishing such a goal?

Muuuur. ;A; So Sugoi!

The handle is a PVC pipe piece with a foam board base for the blade, and I covered the foam board with styrene plastic and also used the plastic for the details on the guard.

Are you referring to the character in the picture above? Or the series of games titled "Legend of Zelda"? Just curious, because that's Link, not Zelda.

This picture just brought back all the things that made me fall in love with Link!!! Thank you for posting!!! (on a side note may I ask if the sword is real or did you make a prop? If a prop what did you use and how did you make it? If real did you make it or have it made?)

Well, too bad. Us lefties are always forgotten and ignored, and when we finally get a left handed character, "NOPE HE'S A RIGHTIE IN THIS ONE. Love, Nintendo"
Screw that. Skyward Sword is uncanon to me because of that alone.

Hi. Lefty here. You have plenty of reasons to be proud of being a lefty. We make up roughly 10% of the Earth's population, and we have a higher percentage of people with IQs over 140! Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, and Benjamin Franklin were all left-handed. That's pretty neat, huh?

This game, Skyward Sword, is the first game where Link is definitely right-handed, but it has been an issue of contention before, for example in a Link to the Past, his hand switches due to limitations on the developers and sprite animations. He's also right-handed in the animated series. With the exception of Twilight Princess, Link is certainly left-handed in every other game. So calm down. He's still a lefty.

I didn't miss your point, I dismissed it as being ridiculous and instead tried to find one that made more sense. Forgive me for failing to do so.

Skyward Sword is canon. If it helps you feel any better, it's only one incarnation of Link that you can't "relate to" because he holds his sword in a different hand. Since, as I mentioned, the world is predominantly right-handed, and the Wii version requires you to use your dominant hand as Link's dominant hand, the choice was made to make him right-handed. It wasn't to slight you or to take away some precious connection you have with the character.

By the way, Einstein is German. Darwin and Newton are English. My point was there are many reasons to be happy to be a lefty.

Calm down. No need to get testy. I for one love the photo and think it is silly to get upset over leftie/rightie. If you want to get into it, how about those who are "bothies"? :iconfacepalmplz:
