There are times I get a bit jealous of all of the awesome geeky clothes that are made for women and this would definitely be one of them.  I have some pretty cool Legend of Zelda t-shirts but they can’t compare to this amazing Legend of Zelda cosplay dress!

Etsy seller Frockasaurus is selling this incredible custom hand-made Legend of Zelda cosplay dress for $513.35.  These dresses are made to order so you can request whatever size you need.  As for details about the dress, here is what they said:

This particular costume is made from 100% cotton, trimmed with crushed gold lamé and gold leatherette. Fully lined in polyester cotton, with 3 layers of net underskirting. Boned bodice, back zip fastening with corset effect lacing over the top. Top stitched in gold thread.

If you are a Legend of Zelda fan who happens to be looking for something to where to a con or even perhaps a renaissance fair but don’t want to deal with the hassle of making your own outfit, this might be just what you have been looking for!  Heck, this would even make for a nice non-traditional wedding dress for a really big Zelda fan.

If you happen to order one of these dresses, send us pictures of you wearing it!  I love to see my readers enjoying the things I post about!

At this point, I think you are all pretty familiar with my dislike of wearing things like rings because I feel they get in the way and are too restrictive, not to mention my fear of never being able to get them off once I get them on.  However, I still enjoy looking at and posting about really cool rings that I happen to come across while I am browsing my favorite websites.  Speaking of cool rings, I think I have found one that any fan of the Nintendo NES console will love!  And yes, I know saying Nintendo NES is redundant but I feel like it is the style I want to write in for once so deal with it! 😛

Etsy seller mooredesign13 is selling these handmade NES controller rings for just $200!  The rings feature the NES controller on a brick pattern with rubies as the A and B buttons.  The ring itself is made of sterling silver.

If you decide to order one of these, be warned that the smallest they can make is a size 9 because otherwise the A and B buttons are too small to set the ruby stones in.

Rings like this make me really wish I liked wearing rings because I would love to wear an NES controller around my finger.

Depending on how long you have been a reader here at Fanboy Fashion or my other site, Global Geek News, you may or may not know that I never leave the house without a hat and I grew up playing the Nintendo Entertainment System.  Well, somebody has finally combined those two things and created a baseball cap style hat with an NES controller embroidered on it!  I might not need a new hat since I just got a new God of War hat that I just started wearing but I think my next has is likely to be this cool NES Controller hat, something I would recommend for anybody else out there that also spent much of their lives with the NES!

The incredibly nerdy people over at SuperHeroStuff are selling this sweet grey Nintendo Entertainment System controller hat for just $21.99!  The hat is a snapback hat so you can adjust it to fit your head which in my experience is a lot better than those hats with elastic (like my God of War cap of which I am on my third one because I love the design so much), which take no time to wear out and suddenly even the lightest gust of wind can steal the cap from your head like the playground bully you hated in school.

It seems like every time I find some good female Link or Princess Zelda cosplay to post, I am always asking myself if I post it too often.  I have posted some great female Link cosplay in the past such as this female Link cosplay and this one just to give a couple of examples.  But I wonder if maybe I do it too often?  I kind of feel like I do but then I remember just how much I love women with pointy ears and then I stop caring and post more.  Well, I found some more great female Link cosplay inspired by Ocarina of Time and thanks to the fact that I am a sucker for pointy ears, here is yet another female Link cosplay post!

This lovely lady Link cosplay is done by the cosplayer Lolita Zombie and these cool pictures were taken by Photographers in Philadelphia.  I think the pictures fit nicely with the cosplay even if she doesn’t really feel in the environments (Photoshop can’t make everything look natural).  I especially like the inclusion of Navi in the one picture.

It always irritates me when things I really want aren’t sold in the US, mainly because the cost of getting something imported is insane.  I’ve been known to pay upwards of $45 just to get a DVD shipped from Europe since it couldn’t be found in the US.  Its not very often I have stuff imported (I would quickly go broke if I did it a lot), but sometimes it is just necessary and I suspect that this is one of those times because the Super Mario Bros shoes below are awesome!

In the past, I have posted some really cool Super Mario Bros themed shoes including some neat Super Mario Bros heels (here is another pair I like just as much) as well as some Paper Mario VANS sneakers.  However, unlike those, these Super Mario Bros themed Converse One Star shoes are going to be available to the masses, at least assuming you live in Japan.

These shoes come in red or green depending on if you want the old 8-bit Mario or 8-bit Bowser and the feature a Super Star on the side replacing the normal Converse Star.

Apparently if you can find them in Japan, they are running in the area of 20,000 yen or $195.  At that price, I think I can live without them because by the time I got done with the import costs and everything, I wouldn’t be surprised if the total cost ended up closer to $300 and that is just crazy for Mario shoes.  I will never pay that much for shoes!

One of the things I always thought was a bit silly when I used to watch the Pokemon cartoons (back before they introduced a ton of new Pokemon I just couldn’t bring myself to care about) was that every city had a Nurse Joy and an Officer Jenny.  It seemed like kind of an odd element in the show but still cool to see the same characters everywhere.  However, I’m guessing most people weren’t as intrigued by the idea as I was because I don’t think I have seen cosplay of either of them until today.

Cosplayer Siren’s Belle is the beautiful girl sporting this great Officer Jenny cosplay. I think she does a great job bringing the cartoon character to life although I can’t help but think that it would be better if she had Officer Jenny’s Growlithe with her.  Seeing one without the other just feels a little odd but since Growlithe isn’t real, I guess its not a big deal.  Also, the photography is pretty good which was done by Beethy.

Now I really feel the urge to go watch the old Pokemon cartoon.  Off to Netflix I go!

While I appreciate great cosplay of all types, Zelda cosplay is probably my favorite.  In general, I think the costumes tend to be more elegant than others and if you have been reading Fanboy Fashion or my other sites like Global Geek News for a while, you know I have a major pointy ear fetish.  Well, apparently it is my lucky day because I came across some amazing Princess Zelda and Princess Hilda cosplay inspired by Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.

The two stunningly beautiful cosplayers are Mandalynn (Princess Zelda) and Guhzoontight (Princess Hilda).  The photographer who took some truly awesome shots with these two is Alexis McNichol.

Perhaps the most impressive part of this amazing cosplay is that it was Mandalynn’s first cosplay and Guhzoontight’s second so its not like they are even pros at this.  I’m not sure how much time they spent making this cosplay but I’d say it was well worth it as both costumes turned out looking fabulous!

This has inspired me to put Watch Dogs on hold for a little bit just so I can finish the last half of A Link Between Worlds because it really is a great game.

It has been a long time since I have watched the Pokemon cartoon, but I used to love coming home from school as a kid and watching it in the afternoons.  I already loved playing the games before I got into the cartoon but the cartoon was pretty good as well.  However, over time I just stopped watching it for the same reason I stopped playing the games (until the latest X/Y release) and that was because I didn’t care for all of the new Pokemon.  I guess I just have a bit of an connection with the original set of Pokemon and adding more beyond that never really set right with me.  Well, speaking of the original Pokemon and characters, I stumbled across some awesome Misty cosplay that I thought you guys would like!

Ryuu Lavitz Cosplay is the fantastic cosplayer sporting this adorable Misty cosplay that even features her beloved Pokemon Staryu.  The photographer for these awesome pictures was Jim Brady.

Both the Misty cosplay and the Staryu look great in my opinion.  She actually looks a lot like a girl I know except her skin is a little lighter, her legs aren’t as long and I’m pretty sure that hair is a wig.  Otherwise, they would look identical.

One of the Legend of Zelda games I really need to take the time to go back and play is Majora’s Mask.  I was obsessed with Ocarina of Time when it came out on the Nintendo 64 and I still play it on my 3DS but I never did play Majora’s Mask.  I had honestly never even knew the game until I was on to the next generation of consoles and when I did hear about it, I heard it wasn’t as good as Ocarina of Time and it was harder so I never really gave much thought to tracking the game down and giving it a try.  However, after going to the Legend of Zelda symphony and hearing some of the music from it and then seeing this incredible full-back tattoo, now I really want to go back and play the game.

This absolutely stunning Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask tattoo belongs to tumblr user TheGreatKeaton who is easily the biggest Majora’s Mask fan I have ever seen.  The tattoo’s mind blowing design was created by Krystian Marciniak and it was inked by Anson Eastin at the Forever Tattoo Parlour in Cape Coral, Florida.  Congrats to all involved for this incredible Zelda masterpiece!

I always enjoy seeing people take their cosplay in a slightly different direction than just the typical recreation.  While I do enjoy seeing people go to incredible lengths to recreate a character down to the finest detail, its nice to see them do something a little more original every once in a while like this sweet warrior Princess Peach cosplay.

This badass warrior Princess Peach cosplay was done by cosplayer Alexia Jean Grey who looks like she is definitely ready to go into battle.  With the exception of the corset which was made by Castle Corsetry, she apparently made the rest of the costume herself and I’d say she did a heck of a job!  I’m really curious to know just how long it took her to make this costume because there is quite a bit of detail to it with all of the jewels, mushrooms and such.

While I am impressed with the whole costume, I especially like the warp pipes on the sword as that seems really clever.  I’d follow her into battle any day!
