Animal Crossing New Horizons Zelda Outfits Fan MadeSource: iMore

I've been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons for a few days now and I'm absolutely loving it. It's such a happy, care-free game that relaxes me and helps me forget about the stresses in my life. Another thing I love about the Animal Crossing series is how wholesome and creative the fan base is. For instance, some awesome people have taken advantage of the custom designing feature to create clothing themed around The Legend of Zelda series. You can bring these outfits to your game by scanning QR codes. Here are a bunch of Zelda-themed outfits as well as instructions on how to bring them into Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Fan-made Zelda outfits

If you're a crazy Zelda fan like me, you really need to check out these designs! You'll find everything from Link's green tunic from Wind Waker, to Princess Zelda's dress in Ocarina of Time, to Lady Urbosa's outfit from Breath of the Wild. The best part is that each of these fan-made outfits comes with a QR code, so you can easily bring these awesome Zelda garments to your game. Thank you @mallorymphoto on Twitter for rounding these all up!

I'm super stoked to run around my island wearing Link's iconic get up from Twilight Princess or maybe even his new blue tunic from Breath of the Wild. Or, ooh ooh! Link's clothing from Wind Waker whether that be his green tunic or his blue lobster shirt. It's super fitting considering this game is all about islands and ocean.
