For episode 14 of Cosplayers Getting Coffee, Silk Spectre and Link sit down to chat about all things cosplay — from their biggest cosplay fails (two words: ripped butt) to the craziest things they’ve ever done for a cosplay.
Aileen Rivera Cinqueman (@momthecosplayer) channeled her inner Watchmen in her Silk Spectre (aka Sally Jupiter) cosplay, describing her as “a superhero who actually has no super powers, but she’s badass.”
Erich von Metzger (@BrooklynLink) channeled his favorite character of all time, Link, for his cosplay. Inspired by the version of Link in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, his detailed cosplay includes Link’s iconic blue tunic, pointy Hylian ears, and, of course, the Master Sword.
The pair goes on to choose some fandom favorites (Tobey McGuire = the best Spider-Man), describe Watchmen and The Legend of Zelda in 10 seconds, and play a tricky round of Flying Sushi Kitchen from RedwoodVentures.
