The "Legend of Zelda" series is one of the most popular of all time among video games and is considered by critics and fans to be the precedent for fantasy or action video games. You can create a Link costume to impersonate the hero of the series. An authentic representation should include Link's Master Sword and his iconic Hylian Shield. These can be ordered online at a wide range of prices with varying quality.

  1. 1

    Go to a website such as Twiggy's Treasures (see Resources) to order any of dozens of "Legend of Zelda" replicas, the Master Sword and the Hylian Shield included. This shield can be worn on the arm and functions authentically.

  2. 2

    Navigate to a website such as Replica Dungeon (see Resources) to get a sword and shield set for a low price, while lessening authenticity. The sword itself is made of steel and arrives sharp, but the shield is made of wood rather than any sort of metal.

  3. 3

    Visit the Amazon website (see Resources) to order a separate sword and shield; Amazon sells authentic metal shields with straps and a grip, so the shield could be used as a true prop.

Tips and warnings

  • Complete the costume with a green tunic, white tights and leather gloves, which can be found in costume stores and factory outlets.
