This homemade costume for girls entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Toni, the 'Linkle from Hyrule Warriors' costume creator:

I started this costume with yards of fabric and some sewing patterns, spurred on for my love of this character. Linkle is a spoof of Link in Hyrule Warriors. She's spunky, energetic, kind, and outgoing, though at times ditsy to a fault. I wanted to wear this costume and feel a little more like her; maybe capture some of her boundless energy for myself. Her cape is a green velveteen, which started as a muslin mock-up draped across my DIY duck tape mannequin, with no pattern to guide the way. The orange cotton skirt and suede boot covers share a similar story, though the blouse is simply modified. I took the buttons off, cut holes, laced it, and threaded elastic through the sleeve's hem to give it some puff. Her knee pads are shaped eva foam, the raised design painted with puff paint, and then covered with fabric to match the boot covers. The compass is cardboard cut, stacked, and glued into the right shape. The face of the compass' design was slipped into the circle while i used a pin to stick the hands of the compass in (and still have them able to move!). Her choker necklace is made from the same brown suede fabric, just doubled over with a lobster claw and chain sewed to secure the ends. The blue gems are made from polymer clay, painted with a calypso blue, and sealed with duraclear to give them a glossy finish. For the entire month of October, I'd come home and sew. Even in school, every lunch period was spent in the art room and work on her crossbows. I carved them out of insulation foam, glued them together, and painted them. Admittedly, I made a lot of mistakes and could've saved a lot of time and money. I probably bought about $100 dollars in materials, everything from paint to fabric to glue, though there's plenty of leftovers for future projects. Luckily, my parents financed this, all the materials being designated as my birthday present. Fitting, since I turned sixteen on Halloween
