I was only half joking yesterday about selling Link. I am, and have been for a while, considering selling the costume. It was true what I said yesterday. I’m sick of being overshadowed and ignored at conventions, of all my hard work like making almost every accessory, making and giving away hundreds of hand drawn maps, being dismissed because I’m not a girl doing Link. I’m sick of being called homophobic slurs at cons because I’m a guy who does a Link costume.
Link is a guy.
So, here’s the deal. I have one person interested in the costume, but if this picture can get over a hundred notes, if there are at least a hundred people out there in Tumblr-land that can appreciate a well done male Link, before this guy can come up with the money, I will keep the costume, and will in fact make even more accessories for Dragon*Con this year. Including a fishing pole to go fishing in the Marriott’s fountains and the Hilton’s pool.
Save Link! Get him a pole.
