This instructable will show you how to make most of the components to a Link costume, from the Legend of Zelda. With what I had, this wound up being a hybrid between the Link from Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. This will include the making of:

- Master Sword & Scabbard
- Hylian Shield
-Tunic, Hat, Leggings,& Undershirt (Altering)
- Navi
- Bracers, Padding, & Gloves (Altering)

I apologize in advance for the not so great step by step pictures. The webcam in my laptop is better than the camera in my cell phone, and I don't have a point and shoot to use at the moment, my old one died, so excuse the crappy webcam quality. Thanks, and enjoy. :)

Step 1: Navi

 For Navi, you will need:
-Styrofoam Ball (Whatever size you want..I wanted a really tiny one. c: )
-Blue Glitter
-Silver and/or blue glitter glue
-Glue (I used modge podge)
-Scrap Fabric, blue or translucent
-Thin Wire
-Glue Gun (and glue sticks for it..obviously) 

Alright, Navi was pretty easy to do. I used a skewer and stuck it into the styrofoam ball less than a centimeter in. I then just submerged in it the modge podge, waited for enough to drip off, and rolled it around in the glitter. For the wings, I painted a section of scrap fabric with glitter glue and then sprinkled a little more of the blue glitter on that. While it was drying, I used the wire to get a shape for the wings. Once dry, I hot glued the wire wings to the fabric and cut them out (make sure to put fabric on both sides). Stick the ends of the wire (be sure to leave enough..one of mine was a little shirt and I had to remake it) into the styrofoam "body" and just hot glue them in place for a little extra reinforcement. To mount her, I found a stiff piece of wire (think stronger than a paper clip) and hot glued it into the scabbard, and stuck and glued the other end into her. 
<p>Did you also make the silver part curve? </p>
Cute lol
Be my best friend. ^_^
Your shield is better than mine (but mine is wood) and my gauntlets are real but this costume is really good.( you could have carved the blade better though, his has a little cut out space at the base)
I love the person in the back doorway just staring at you XD
