Cosplay Wednesday – The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker’s Medli

Cosplay Wednesday - The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker's Medli

Until just recently, fans of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker had to dust off their Gamecube copies of the game if they wanted to hit the high seas as Toon Link. With Nintendo re-releasing The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker on the Wii U, a whole new generation of gamers can now experience the diverse cast and crew of the game — including Medli. To honor this re-release, we take a look at one of the finest cosplays of this bird-like character.

Nina “MangoSirene” tries her hand at The Wind Waker’s Rito with this Medli cosplay. It wasn’t enough for her to recreate Medli’s costume to the finest detail; she also made sure to adapt her wings using SunnyBrook1’s “Realistic Wing Tutorial.” She also had her friend Rin come along as Toon Link for this particular photo shoot.

Want to see her in person? She has made the rounds at Maryland’s Katsucon, and has been featured in their wrap-up video (2:50).
