October is just around the corner and you know what that means: evil spirits and trick-or-treating. And whether you’re going on a quest to save the princess or just to get all the free candy you can, now you can do it in style with an official Legend of Zelda Link costume.

Have you ever wanted to bomb some Dodongos or rough up some Cuccos? Well, now’s your chance with your very own Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and Link outfit. Where can your procure these legendary items? Read on and get ready for adventure, brave warrior!

Just in time for Halloween, the people at ThinkGeek have released a set of official, licensed replicas of the Master Sword, Hylian shield, and Link costume as they are depicted in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Let’s have a closer look:

▼ This Hylian Shield will take your cosplay game to a hy-er level.


The shield itself is 19 inches (48 centimeters) long and 3.5 inches (9 centimeters) thick, making it quite durable against enemy attacks. It also has two elastic straps on the back so you won’t lose your grip in battle or when fleeing from those weird flying desert pineapple things.

▼ Warning: Master Sword may not shoot energy beams when you’re at full health.

The Master Sword, a.k.a. the Blade of Evil’s Bane, is 26 inches (66 centimeters) long and comes with its own scabbard so you don’t poke anyone’s eyes out with it. With this sword you can vanquish evil and smash some of your neighbor’s flower pots to get more candy.

▼ “Well excuuuse me, Princess!”


But wait! You can’t just venture out in plain old jeans and a t-shirt. You’ll need the iconic green tunic and cap to get your adventure on its way. Luckily, ThinkGeek has thought of that too, though it looks like the pants are sold separately. We can only guess that this means they’re not necessary for all adventures.

The Master Sword retails for US$24.99, the Hylian Shield for $19.99, and the Link costume (tunic, belts, boot covers, and hat) for $69.99. All are available at ThinkGeek.com. Now if we just could get them to start selling rideable Loftwings….
