Wily Wednesdays - Link Costume

No time for anything new this week, so I'm adding an oldie from 2007. The Legend of Zelda is probably one of my favorite games ever, and that year to make my nerdy dreams come true. I sewed the tunic and the hat, and the belts are stitched together with wire (Kyle offered his invaluable help with the wire sewing). The sword's a stainless steel replica and the shield is made of wood--both have surprising heft to them. A blue ocarina is in the pouch, and I can play all of two songs on it. The boots and gloves (with a little modification) were a lucky find from the thrift store. Overall, it was a fun costume to piece together, and gave me an excuse to display some of my nerd gear.
