Link is the main character in the “Legend of Zelda” video game series. Costume play featuring Link is generally seen at video game and comic book conventions, such as Comic-con, Comicfest and Comicpalooza.
Link is a popular costume for many cosplayers due to the fact that the costume is very basic and can be worn by either gender. The key parts of the basic costume are a green tunic, master sword, green cap and a shield featuring the Hyrule symbol. Those who want to use a costume from a specific game in the series will sometimes use a red or blue tunic, chainmail or an ocarina.
