Request: Genderbent Link (LoZ) by GL-Gloria Request: Genderbent Link (LoZ) by GL-Gloria
For :icondragontamer155: 

who wanted a female version of Link (from Legend of Zelda)'s clothes

What I came up with:

going with the traditional tunic-->dress seemed too obvious to me, so instead, i opted for a draped v-neck romper, trimmed with leather at the sleeves, worn over a leather corset bodice, worn over a lace-up lace shirt. Long gloves go over that, and short leather gloves+protective armor are worn over that. Finally, as accessories, Link's iconic hat, thigh high boots, and a harness for Link's weapons and such (not drawn, because I suck at drawing weapons!)  

Hope you like!

i love the romper idea and the leather gloves just look amazing, like theyre thick enough to block a sword or something! and the lace underneath is such a cool thought. btw what fabric would the romper be, plain cotton, or silk, or what???

So was the whole thing originally your first idea or did you tweak as you go along? And I know you don't go to a design school or anything but, would your recommend pursuing fashion as a career or not? Heheh ovo"

nope, this was my first sketch. 

ehhh, it really depends. i grew up in a really academic city, so i had to fight and stand up for my design and encountered a lot of adversity, so i knew it was what i was meant to do. so even if it meant making a few enemies along the way or losing friends, being disrepected by my community, keeping a secret from my parents, lying about it to their faces, i did all that for my passion so that's how i know it was for me. but most people are like "oo fashion pretty" or "i like shopping" so i would not make such a career choice based on "its fun" also you've got to really /work/ and /challenge/ yourself, i spend so much resources (time and money) to do this and im teaching it to myself and i have devoted myself to this trade, even if its completely outside my school/academic life. going into this you have to consider a lot of factors: what you want to accomplish, fall backs, connections, networks, talent, ability, money, etc, etc...

me personally, ive been intrigued by fashion basically the minute i was born (and perhaps even before then), i feel like i was born to do this (my grandmother (dad's side) made cloth as in fabric and my grandmother (mom's side) made clothes), and my mom was working in a bridal salon working on wedding gowns while she was pregnant with me. i often blamed my mom for socializing me to love fashion, because she bought me so many dress up dolls and whatnot but she told me the only reason she bought those for me was because *i* asked for them (even as a wee child i loved fashion). i only became aware of fashion design as a career in 6th grade when a t.a. casually asked whether or not i wanted to go into design, and in the 7th grade, i took a career test and fashion design was in my top 10, and that did it for me. ive been doing design ever since.

yup. sorry for the long rant.
