Diana as Link from Zelda



Diana has spent the last few weeks working on this costume. She did everything herself - I just provided mentoring.

She ordered the wig & had to trim & style it. The boots are just a good find at Ross. The sword was a wooden one that is spray-painted.

She is using plain leggings, and then she modified the collar on the mockneck shirt. She sewed the tunic, hat & arm guards. She also bought a eyelet-maker, and did all those as well (it comes with an anvil!). They have leather laces.

The ears were also special ordered. Pretty cool, huh?

Oh - she also has lost about 7 lbs to get ready for this because "Link doesn't have a muffin-top."

So I am dropping her off in gawd-awfully-early in the AM. We make it to the line of kids and she is greeted with a too loud for the AM "ITS LINK!"

Then one particularly interested lad came forward appraised her costume as perfect, except for the chain mail...
