With Breath of the Wild being, you know, a pretty OK video game, not to mention a Zelda game with cool character design, it's probably safe to assume that 2017 is going to be full of killer Link and Zelda cosplay. So let's get started on that.

One wrong move and the ball would fall out, forcing me to start again.
