Recently, I had the privilege of attending MomoCon, an animation and gaming convention held every year in Atlanta, Ga. Dressed as Malon, I joined up with fellow costumed Zelda fans to celebrate our favorite series. Cosplayers depicted characters from multiple Zelda generations. While we had a number of Links and Zeldas, I was excited to see there were also plenty of lesser-done characters such as Poe, Medli, Skull Kid and Malon.

I always love getting to meet and hang out with other Zelda fans. I’ve made so many great friends at Zelda fan gatherings, and look forward to making many more. Well that’s enough yacking from me — onto the pictures!

Is this not the sweetest picture you’ve ever seen?

fierce skull kid

Skull Kid better watch out! He’d hate to be on the wrong end of that sword.

Sorry Dark Link, looks like you’re outnumbered.

With more than 20,000 attendees, this was the biggest MomoCon yet, and it just keeps growing every year. It was so great meeting up with so many Zelda fans, and everyone looked fantastic. I better start on next year’s cosplay now if I want to keep up with these guys!

A special thanks goes out to Hannah Penn for making this year’s Zelda photoshoot and meetup a success!

  • Too cool! I wish I could’ve been there to see everyone! Is anyone from the ZU team going to be at any other conventions this year?

    • Amanda

      I’ll be covering DragonCon for sure which is Labor Day weekend 🙂

  • MercyTheFox

    Your welcome, this reminds me I need to a head and start getting the AWA Zelda shoot put together. 😛

    It would be funny if Zelda U game out that same weekend again like Hyrule Warriors last year. XD
    Hopefully we’ll also get our Zelda panel this year as well, and I promise I’ll be in Zelda cosplay for AWA. lol.
