Last year I didn’t get to attend MAGFest, which was super sad. This year… BACK ON TRACK! Since my sister and brother in law have never been to a geeky convention before, I’ll be bringing them along for their first con experience! I’m super excited! Only sad news for me is that the Triforce Quartet isn’t playing at MAGFest 2016. (How can this be??? *sadface*)
Of course this means I had to decide on a cosplay to lug down to Maryland for the con. I decided to go with Link from Legend of Zelda. I figured this was a good winter season cosplay since I get to wear pants and a hat lol! Now that I have a Master Sword and Hylian Shield, I was kind of panicking about how I was going to carry my props on public transportation. The sword was too big for any duffel bag! After a stroke of genius, I realized I could fit everything into a guitar case. 🙂
I also picked up the Legend of Zelda Adventurer’s Pouch Kit from GameStop to complete my cosplay look. After I pieced all the parts of the cosplay together, I decided to take some teaser shots and put myself in Hyrule. I had a lot of fun with it! Check out my Photoshop comps for Link.
Hopefully I’ll have more photos next weekend so I can make even MORE Photoshop comps! This is my favorite way to nerd out lol! I’ll try to blog again when I’m back in NY. For those who are staying local this weekend, be sure to check out the grand re-opening of the newly renamed “Nintendo NYC” store on the 19th. (I find this new name very intriguing… makes me think more Nintendo stores might pop up in different regions in the future…!!)
Side Note: Who’s collecting Animal Crossing Amiibo Cards: Series 2?? I will post soon with my spares and which cards I’m still missing. I am willing to send cards by mail if needed. Check back soon for updates!
