Cosplay Wednesday – The Legend of Zelda’s Zelda
The Internet exploded in a sea of hype when Nintendo finally announced a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past after 20 years. The titular princess has seen a lot of makeovers in the past two decades, but only one cosplay artist has shown her love for every last one.
Cosplay artist Akuriko has been a huge fan of Zelda, ever since she was three years old. While she has also dabbled in cosplays from mega-popular properties like Final Fantasy and Rainbow Brite, her Legend of Zelda-themed cosplays outnumber them all. Her Twilight Princess costume in particular took her over a year to make from scratch, but her talents have not gone unnoticed — she has won awards for her work! Those who wish to see this princess in person can find her at this year’s Fanime and ColossalCon.
