Is it love, is it friend-zoned affection, or wistful thinking? The fandom is split on just how romantic the Link and Zelda thirds of the Triforce really are.
Regardless of which side of the fence that you land, you're hard-pressed to find two more recognizably nerdy costumes than the Hero of Time and "what would it be like if Zelda was a girl?"
Perfect for whether you want to insist you're "just friends" or leaving things ambiguous, there have also been dozens of different iterations of the Link and Zelda costumes over the years, so piecing one together could be super easy or super detailed depending on skill, cost, and time considerations.
The original link for this picture is gone, but some internet sleuthing has me fairly sure that it is part of this photo shoot with AdelCosplay. Check it out for some more inspiration!
