    SL 55 Dark Link Cosplay? Empty SL 55 Dark Link Cosplay?

    Post by Slarg232 Mon Feb 25, 2013 10:37 pm

    Anyone have any ideas how to go about the look for a Dark Link cosplay? Got enough time to make one character before the Dragon Event...

    Shield and weapon is easy, armor will be tough. Iron Flesh would give you that metallic glean that Dark Link has but rob him of his mobility which is very important to Dark Link.

    SL 55 Dark Link Cosplay? Empty Possible?

    Post by Paragon Mon Feb 25, 2013 11:01 pm

    I gotta say youve got your work cut out for you. Link is a very iconic figure and it will be very difficult to make a build that people will see and recognize as link. Without a good hat and tunic your pretty much screwed. I agree that the sword and shield would be pretty simple but dont forget the bow, a bow is crucial. also getting the stats set up should be pretty easy. The only trouble you should run in to is like I said: the hat and the tunic. Not sure if pharis hat would cut it. 🇳🇴

    I know, right? And do you think Black Leather would be better, or Black Cleric?

    Also, should I go with Firebombs or Fireballs for Link's Bombs?

    Black leather would be better than black cleric. Definitely get black fire bombs. You'll need a metric F U C Kton of em. Im starting to think you might be able to make this work but again you gotta have the hat. Let me know if you think of anything ill give you a second opinion. bounce big grin

    Boomerrang- Not Possible sad
    Sheild- Crest or Dragon Crest
    Bow- BBoP?
    Bombs- Black Fire Bombs
    Mobility- DWGR

    SL 55 Dark Link Cosplay? Empty DWGR is a no

    Post by Paragon Mon Feb 25, 2013 11:29 pm

    Sorry man but Link dont do no F U C King flips. It wouldnt be a true link build if you used the DWGR. Composite bow would work better and look more similar to most of the renditions of the hero bow. make a MugenMonkey of your build and set up a link to it. Ill take a look at it and be able to be more helpful. So far its shaping up pretty well, you might really be able to pull this off. Ill take a look at all of the helmets and tell you which one works best in my opinion.

    Writing a paper right now that's due tomorrow at 8:00, three pages long and I haven't started. Figured I would start the topic and get input before actually trying to put it together.

    Also, What about Twilight Princes when he could flip over peoples' heads?

    Post by Paragon Mon Feb 25, 2013 11:45 pm

    I had taken Twilight Princess into acount but the thing is thats only that one game, its simply not iconic enough. also we can continue this whenever youre free you dont have to do it right now. Oh yeah i think hat wise your best bet might be the pyromancer hood.

    Black Sorcerer chest dude. I also recommend the Silver Knight Sword but it requires a hefty Dex investment for viable damage.

    SL 55 Dark Link Cosplay? Empty Yes and No

    Post by Paragon Tue Feb 26, 2013 12:45 pm

    I would agree with Gladis about using the SKSS but i disagree with using the Black sorcerer cloak, its too poofy and looks kinda derpish. Stick to the black leather torso but get different pants. Perhaps paladin leggings or anything that shows boots, link wears boots. Oh and if your gonna be Dark Link you just GOTTA be an invader. Thats basically what dark link does to link in the games. Finally if you can manage, Change your PSN or Gamertag to Dark Link temporarily for that extra oomph.

    Actually, Link backflips a LOT. He also rolls a lot, though.

    Sword-Astora's Straight Sword and the Sunlight Straight Sword are the closest sword I know of in terms of appearance to the Master Sword. Combine this with Great Magic Weapon and you've got a spin attack.

    Shield-Considering it's usual defenses, (and that it doesn't normally help that much for fire) the Crest Shield is the closest match the Hylian Shield.

    Head-There aren't any really good hood choices for a Link or Dark Link cosplay. Since Dark Link is black, I suggest you use the Black Leather Hood.

    Torso-Shadow Garb or Black Iron Armor.

    Arms-Plenty of options; take your pick.

    Legs-Black Iron Leggings, Heavy Boots.

    Bombs-black Firebombs or any non-chaos Fireball.

    Bow-The Composite Bow and Darkmoon Bow are the closest in appearance to the bows Link uses. (Link uses recurve bows frequently)

    Hookshot/Longshot/Clawshot-The closest thing to this are whips, specifically the Notched Whip and the Guardian Tail.

    Megaton/Skull Hammer-Giant Blacksmith's Hammer

    Sword Beams-Moonlight Greatsword. This also works for a Fierce Deity/Oni/Kishin Link.

    Spells:
    Din's Fire-Any Firestorm
    Nayru's Love-Great/Magic Barrier or Iron Flesh
    Light Arrows-Any Lightning Spear

    Link, even his dark side, wears a tunic that comes down to just above his knees, which is what the BS cloak is. Aside from perhaps the Wanderer coat, the Black Sorcerer chest looks the most similar, not that that's saying much.

    SL 55 Dark Link Cosplay? Empty still not sure

    Post by Paragon Tue Feb 26, 2013 11:33 pm

    I dunno I mean I guess the Black Sorcerer cloak would work if your character was either slim or very slim. Speaking of which, remember to customize his looks not just his attire. also Can you update your MugenMonkey because as is your link only has a claymore and as far as I know Dark Link never rocked the Biggoron sword though it would be cool if he did. So as for weapons i would suggest fully upgraded Crest shield in your LH1 fully upgraded SKSS or SunlightSS in your RH1. Composite bow with fire and large arrows in your LH2 and I guess a Ascended +5 flame in your RH2. Youve gotten me really excited about this build of yours and now I feel truly invested in its success. Ill experiment a little on MugenMonkey and see if i cant come up with some new Ideas.

    P.s. Thanks for your help as well Gladis. Your a champ for lending your expertise. SL 55 Dark Link Cosplay? 1697181849

    Black leather > black sorcerer. Seriously, black sorcerer is too scholarly looking.
