How to Chose a Zelda Link Costume For Your Kids


Zelda Link cosplay is also a really hot cosplay idea for your cute kids! In our Link cosplay buyer guide , I have introduce the best Link costume pattern for kids, so in this article, I want to focus other more details.

According to your budget , there are several ways to complete Zelda Link kid cosplay:

1. Budget $70-$100:

Using the costume pattern from Four Swords,The Wind Waker,Four Swords Adventures and The Minish Cap:


Custom made costume with the same belt buckle as the game, light weight Link sword and shield special made for kids , and also don’t forget the elf ear.


2.Budget $40-$70:


Using the kid elf costume instead of the Link costume, I recommend you can make a belt buckle like the one in zelda game.



And also actually Link looks like peter pan, so peter pan’s kid costume  ( more cheap than the elf kid costume ) can be easily rework as Link kid costume as well. If you can not find any kid Link costume to satisfy your request, get a peter pan’s costume and modify it yourself will be a good choice.You should re-make the green hat and the costume cuff , and also get a light green tee shirt inside.

3.Low budget but enough time & craft work

If you don’t have much budget for the costume but still wanna get more feature of the kid Link costume, I really recommend you to make the costume yourself. The best kid Link costume is always being made by the parents themselves, you can spend $10 around to get the best kid Link cosplay, there are some good examples:

For the Link costume pattern, you can find it at here,and you don’t need to make the Link shirt inside just get a normal green Tee for your kid will be ok.

And if you want to make the easiest kid Link costume, please focus to finish the Link costume belt set, then get green T shirt and shorts for your kids, then bingo! Check these two examples below:



Also if you are making Link costume for your small baby, please follow this Kid Link costume pattern ,but you’d better have some basic knitting skill.




Got inspired? There are two more suggestions:

  1. Don’t buy or make any Link sword & shield by metal or even wood,these swords could hurt your kids and other people easily.
  2. Try to make kid link cosplay yourself, not matter only he hat or a small kid belt, you will get really happy from the process.

How to choose a Dragon Ball Goku costume with different symbols?



Goku wears a few outfits in Dragon Ball Anime. Some of the them look the same, the only difference is the symbol on the costume. When cosplayers are going to cosplay as Goku, many may get confused.
Now I’m going to write some introduction and meaning to these different symbols. Hope you’ll know which one to choose.

1. First one, the symbol on the costume is kame

This is Master Roshi’s kanji, pronounced kame and meaning “turtle”, is the kanji that all of those trained under Master Roshi are given to wear after completing their training. This kanji is a patch worn on the top right side of the Turtle School uniform, and on a much larger patch on the back.

Goku was trained by Master Roshi when he was a kid, so this is the first costume he wears. And if you’re buy a goku costume for your kid, this is the best one to choose.

And Goku competed in the World Martial Arts Tournament wearing this outfit.

Two other characters who also has worn the same outfit. You can also cosplay as them using just one costume. Or you can form a group cosplay. This is the costume you should wear when you attend the con togerther with them.

Krillin (Goku’s lifelong best friends)

Yamcha (once an enemy of Goku, but later became a friend and ally)
2. Second one, the symbol on the costume is eddbbe19cfbf80_full

It is Goku’s kanji, pronounced Go (meaning “wisdom” or “enlightenment”) is the kanji that Goku adopts after his training in preparation for the upcoming battles on Namek. Goku continues to wear this kanji until the arrival of the Androids.

So this is the costume you should choose when the cosplay background is Namek.

Goku’s son Gohan has also worn this outfit once, you can also cosplay as him. And it is also a good choice if a father is cosplaying together with his son.


3. Third one, the symbol on the costume is symbol_of_goku_by_expoartexplorer-d69yng0

It is King Kai’s kanji, pronounced kaiō and meaning “world king” King Kai wears these two kanji on a large, round patch on the front of his uniform. When Goku dons it, he wears it only on the back of his uniform, keeping the Master Roshi kanji on the top right of the front of his uniform. Yamcha wears it in reverse to Goku, having the Kai kanji on the front and the Master Roshi kanji on the back.
