Hours in makeup

The Legend of Zelda is a pretty big deal for Nintendo fans. The series is packed with amazing games and memorable characters, and it's little wonder that whenever cosplay events take place, a large proportion of attendees choose to dress up as famous faces from the franchise.

If you need any more evidence of this, feast your eyes on this impressive cosplay compilation from YouTube channel Beat Down Boogie - the same guys who did the amusing Mario Warfare series. It has everything - Link, Dark Link, several flavours of Zelda and much more besides - including a rather impressive Steampunk Hero of Time.
