Our forever silent protagonist of each and every Zelda game (well, like, very nearly all of them anyway), Link has donned many a familiar green tunic over the years. Now, with Breath of the Wild’s customisable clothing options, we’re seeing Link venture out into things that aren’t quite as green and elf-like. That being said, here are some of our picks for the best Link costumes available at the moment. For both kids and big kids.

Our second protagonist, and the one whose name is featured in the actual title of the franchise, Princess Zelda hasn’t quite stuck to the same familiar outfit from game to game. Zelda has a much more varied range of clothing options depending on the game she’s featured in and what the situation demands. Right here, we’ll be showing off some of the best Princess Zelda costumes available at the moment.
