King Harkinian is by far the most widely cosplayed character from the CD-i Zelda games, but occasionally he does not cosplay alone. The two cosplays I have lined up today feature the king with his beloved daughter, Princess Zelda herself. Interestingly, I could not find any other examples of someone cosplaying CD-i Princess Zelda outside of partnering up with a king. And what about Link? We haven’t seen any cosplay of him yet either.

Here’s myself and The Missing Link ready to attend the Zelda symphony concert in Sydney last month.
With this being the last cosplay feature for CD-i Month, I’m a little bit sad that I could find no other Zeldas, and more than that, I could not find a single person who has cosplayed CD-i Link despite extensive searches. The best I can give you is Omender, who did the classic “Gee, it sure is boring around here” pose while in a traditional Link costume.
If you know of any CD-i cosplay that hasn’t been featured during CD-i Month, let us know in the comments below!
