Going down the rabbit hole that is YouTube, I channel hopped my way through some of my favorite creators and the other YouTubers that they collaborated with. Whilst admiring Mykie's work on her channel Glam & Gore, I was lead to the channel of Alexa Poletti, a cosplayer, makeup artist, and overall adorbs person! Her name sounded familiar but I couldn't quite remember why. I don't ever recall seeing her work before so I carried on and watched her collab videos with Mykie and then discovered her Zelda-themed episodes. It was then that I discovered this gem, Link (Legend of Zelda) Makeup Tutorial from 2014 and one of Alexa's older videos on her channel. I enjoyed watching the whole video, as I did with the rest of her work. As the video came to an end, there was something familiar that caught my eye...
It was one of my Blue Potion Bottles! Could it be a coincidence, though? I kept watching the end of her video.
It was one of my Deluxe Winged, Medium Fairies! Alex Poletti... the name suddenly made sense! She had placed an order for these back in the day and then used them in her video! It was such a fun treat to see them in the video so unexpectedly. It definitely makes me want to get back into crafting some more and getting new series, The Legend of Crafts, up and running soon! ♥
Today's featured (and new!) cosplays: Tsukimi and Clara
Tsukimi Kurashita, age 19 and reporting for anime convention attendance! Oh, don't forget my friend, Clara, here! She's a jellyfish.

Hey everyone! Time to reawaken The Legend of Cosplay! It's been quite some time since I've really built any plushies or cosplays and that's a super bummer. So I've joined Twitch! I am currently renovating and creating a whole crafting space (as well as a larger space for my Zelda Collection!) Once the space is finished, I figured the best way to get back into the old me is to livestream my builds! ♥
I am planning on starting out my Twitch livestreams with making enemy plushies from the original Legend of Zelda. I’ve already made octorocks in the past. Should my first video be on those or should we start with a different enemy?
Which NES Zelda enemy should I made a plushie of first for my Twitch stream? https://www.twitch.tv/linksliltri4ce
Let me now below!
If you subscribe to my Patreon you'll have access to ALL of my new plushie patterns! ;) https://www.patreon.com/linksliltri4ce
The patterns will also be made available for individual purchase in my Online Store!

We're finally getting more looks at the up coming game in the Zelda series! It's call The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I wrote a live blog over with our friends at PB&Awesome - so hit the link (pun intended) to check it out!
Our Winter Cons went awesome! We loved trying out the new Washi Con and Almacon is always a favorite of ours! We even had what could possibly be the BEST turnout for our Convention Free Raffles ever on Saturday at Almacon 2016! Love you guys! If you haven't been to one of our Free Raffle Events, at most conventions that we work at we offer a free giveaway! Throughout the sales day we hand out raffle tickets to anyone who visits our booth (no purchase necessary!) Then at a designated time (typically about a half an hour before the Artist Alley closes for the day) we pull tickets and if our number matches your number you win a FREE PRIZE off of our table! They're lots of fun to do and we always have a nice turnout for them, so check them out at the next big con we'll be selling at (Youmacon 2016!)
Jackfelgar and I are taking a short break while we wait for our little guy, JrTri4ce, to show up! Unfortunately that means we're going to have to miss a lot of the spring conventions we liked from last year. It's ok! We'll be able to see some of you when we attend Motor City Comic Con for fun and for JrTri4ce's convention debut! We'll see you then!
How's it going, Legend of Cosplay fans? Jackfelgar and I hope you all had an awesome winter holiday! The con season is starting to pick back up and there are two that are coming up that we will be at!
The first one is on January 23rd called Washi Con located on the Eastern Michigan University Campus. It's a fresh new con so we hope to see you out there to show your support! We even have a friend who is running two panels at the event (A Study Abroad in Japan Panel at 9am and Yokai Panel at 5pm!)
The second one is a personal favorite of ours called Almacon located on the Alma College Campus. It'll be our fifth year attended Almacon and third year in their Artist Alley. It's a fantastic three day event from Febuary 5th-7th that is great for the experienced and casual con-goer alike! They always pull in some great voice actors and other guests, so make sure you add it to your winter con list!
After these two cons we're probably going to slow down for a little bit seeing as JrTri4ce is scheduled to arrive sometime mid to late March. As far upcoming cons after that we'll know more about after our little guy is born. Until then, feel free to check out our Online Store in case you miss us at Washi Con or at Almacon!
