Everyday Cosplay — Linkle (Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Warriors)

Last week Nintendo announced that the new Hyrule Warriors game for the 3DS will include a playable female version of Link. I’m so happy this franchise is embracing the idea of playable females. For so long fans have complained that despite Zelda being named after a woman, we can only play as Link. Well, no more! Now we have Linkle and her costume design is friggin adorable.

This time around I tried to find pieces that are a bit more affordable (considering the item typically costs). I wanted to pick up on her earthy colours and layers, but toning down the bright saturated shades. In my everyday rendition, the skirt is a chocolate brown leather and the cloak is a beautiful dark green. The compass necklace from Nordstrom isn’t that large in real life, but wouldn’t that have been a cool accessory? Regardless, long-chained compass paired with the blue choker adds the layers that mimics Linkle’s jewelry choices. The blue pendant matches her weapons but Polyvore refuses to acknowledge crossbows as an accessory.
