Not only has she cosplayed as several iterations of Princess Zelda herself, but also—be still my heart—the real star of Wind Waker, Medli the Rito.

You can see more of Layze’s cosplay at her DeviantArt page.

never really like medli as a character. didnt like the design of the rutos in wind waker much either. considering the word ruto in zlda games usually refers to something to do with the zora (princess ruto) i can only assume the ruto in wind waker are some alternate zora tribe. in which case why?! you got a planet covered in water which zoras would thrive in yet somehow you get a race of ugly bird people?!
