Zelda Williams wore a Link cosplay for Halloween, and it’s confusing

Zelda Williams, daughter of the late Robin Williams, has posted a photo of her in a Link cosplay from the Legend of Zelda franchise to complete the misnomer, and it’s gotten everyone into a twist.

Zelda Williams was infamously named after the princess from the popular Nintendo game franchise, which is usually known for being one of the industry’s biggest misnomers. You play as Link, to rescue Princess Zelda; and the game is called Legend of Zelda, but it’s all about the journey of Link.

After 30 years of relative stability though, Zelda Williams has decided to throw a curveball during Halloween 2019, dressing up as the gaming crossover most people were dreading.

Williams posted pictures and videos of her Link cosplay to Twitter, with quite the ironic hashtag of “#CallMeZeldaOneMoreTime”.

She did a pretty good job of it, with the turquoise tunic, long blonde hair, and the elven ears poking out of the sides. She even had the sword and shield props to walk around with, and the big leather boots Link trotted around Hyrule in. 

It’s just that, what do you end up calling her on the candy run – Zelda or Link?

Calling her Zelda is obviously cool if you are on a first name basis, but if other people aren’t in on it, people would think you had never played the franchise. If you call her Link, it’s calling her in character, but it’s the reverse of the misnomer players have gotten so used to in gaming.

Twitter was equally confused, with many users complementing the play-on-characters Williams put together for the special occasion while at the same time dropping the joke everyone was waiting 30 years for.

“Zelda dresses (up) as Link,” said Twitter user ‘RoonKolos’. “Welp. Everyone pack it up. She won Halloween.”

“This is the best Zelda cosplay I’ve ever seen,” said ‘MugiwaraNolan,’ which just seems like the biggest bait setup. 

Either way, she lived up to Link’s name across Twitter the whole night, carrying chickens and threatening to smash clay pots to obtain the ever valuable rupees.

Thankfully, the confusion is only for a day, but it’s a wonderful play on the whole Zelda-Link debacle in the games. At least when she’s dressed up as Link, you can’t get it wrong either way.

Apex Legends cosplayer plunders loot on Olympus as gunslinger Loba

Loba is one of the sassiest characters in Apex Legends, and cosplayers love stepping into her knee-high boots, but one has really stunned her fans with a masterful piece.

Apex Legends players are drawn to their favorite legends for different reasons. Some like them for their aesthetic and personality, others like them for their skills and ultimates. However, it’s hard to name one more universally loved than Loba.

Loba has it all, from a unique look and an interesting backstory to a larger-than-life personality. She’s also incredibly useful on the battlefield. The fact she can teleport around makes her an absolute menace in gunfights.

However, her true value lies in being able to spot high-quality loot and teleport it to her squad. In that sense, she’s the ultimate team player, and it’s the reason why she is often in demand.

Loba has one of the biggest personalities in Apex Legends.

Loba is a popular choice among Apex Legends cosplayers too. They love stepping into the boots of their favorite gunslinging bandit and embodying her attitude and elegance. Like most cosplays, they’re all incredible in their own way.

Sarenji, a popular German cosplayer with thousands of followers on Instagram, recently stole the hearts of her fans with a stunning Loba cosplay.

“I’ll take your life and your loot. I’m exceptionally good at both!” she said, in reference to a Loba quote.

The first set of photos showcases her long braided pigtails with a red-tinge, as well as the make-up, long nails, earrings, gold necklace, and the white and grey chest piece with gold seams. 

The highlight, however, has to be Loba’s trademark silver staff with a wolf’s head on top. Apex Legends players well-versed in the lore will know that it was a gift she received from her father.

In the second set of photos, Sarenji gives her fans a better look at the piece from further back. It provides a more complete picture of the outfit and offers a glimpse at her leggings too.

“A gun is like a beautiful woman. Hold her tight or someone else will,“ she said, quoting Loba once again.

Sarenji didn’t hesitate to give credit where credit was due. She thanked ezcosplay for create the outfit and senpai3d_for creating the staff.

Still, it doesn’t change the fact she wore it well and played an equally important part in bringing Loba to life.
