Homemade Halloween video game costumes
Cedar, has been Link The Legend of Zelda for the last three Halloweens. Two years ago he got really crafty, making his own version of Link. Cedar wore a green shirt, borrowed a belt from dad and made a homemade cardboard sword with paint and glitter. He also made his own shield with K’NEX . His dad made the hat.
Then last year, Cedar upped his game, making a homemade wooden sword, homemade bottles of milk, homemade rupees with homemade organic clay and carried an ocarina. Your kid can make his own homemade Link costume too. However, I can’t guarantee the perfect blond Link hair though. Cedar’s been growing his out for four years SPECIFICALLY to look like Link (wow). This kid of mine is dead serious when it comes to looking the part.
P.S. Cedar is lucky because his dad sews, and made his Link hat. If you don’t sew, but your kid wants to be Link, check out this Legend of Zelda: Link Cosplay Green Hat. See more video game costume ideas below.
