The Legend of Zelda’s Urbosa Cosplay Will Surely Take Your Breath Away
Check out this beautifully captivating cosplay of Urbosa from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
There’s no doubt about it, The Legend of Zelda franchise has been a huge hit for Nintendo. After making its debut in Japan back in 1986 on the Famicom Disk System, The Legend of Zelda continues to delight fans to this current day on the Nintendo Switch with the highly successful Breath of the Wild. According to The NPD Group’s Mat Piscatella, Breath of the Wild has been on the top ten list every single month since its March 2017 release, which is 42 consecutive months where it has never charted lower than 7th. While Link may be the main protagonist of The Legend of Zelda series, Gerudo chieftain Urbosa is truly a worthy container for the fan-favorite, especially so when the cosplay is as fabulous as brown.suga.outlaw‘s.
Urbosa, or otherwise known as Lady Urbosa, Gerudo Champion of Hyrule or Chief of the Gerudo from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, was the Gerudo Chieftain of her people, governing from Gerudo Town. She was close friends with the Queen of Hyrule, Zelda’s mother, before her death and took on a motherly role to her daughter. When King Rhoam and Princess Zelda called upon the Gerudo for aid in the coming battle against Calamity Ganon, Urbosa offered her sword immediately and agreed to become the Gerudo Champion, and pilot, of the Divine Beast Vah Naboris.
Award-winning cosplayer and actor Brown.suga.outlaw (also known as Cree Michelle Rogers) comes in with her incredible looking attempt at the fierce and strong Urbosa. As you can see from Brown Suga’s attire, she has brilliantly matched Urbosa’s vibrant and fiery red hair which she keeps tied up in a high ponytail. You can also see from one of Cree’s close up images of her face that she has Urbosa’s bright green eyes, just like Riju, another character from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild who is a descendant of the royal line of Gerudo Chieftains. Paying close attention to Cree’s flamboyant color scheme that she has going on we see a finely designed breastplate, two shoulder guards, an intricate gold belt, and a blue scarf she uses as a skirt, given to her as a symbol of her role as a Champion of Hyrule. She also wears several gold rings on her fingers and has painted her nails and lips blue, matching the color of her skirt perfectly.
We feature many cosplayers here on DualShockers and this certainly is up there with the best of them. I also love how real Cree’s Scimitar of the Seven sword and The Daybreaker shield looks even though it is made from foam, the designer has obviously gone to a lot of trouble to make it as precise as possible. Cree stated that her wig was initially a little bothersome and said that she “almost gave up because Urbosa’s wig looked like a Vultures nest for a hot second, but thanks to my Walmart steamer and two cans of spray paint, the wig turned out better than I thought it would!”. We think it looks perfect and a huge congratulations to her on this amazing Urbosa cosplay.

In other The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild news, YouTube channel 64 Bits created a “Paper Zelda” RPG style trailer using the same graphical and animation style as the popular Paper Mario RPG titles. Another amazingly talented artist combined scenes from the upcoming Breath of the Wild 2 with the art style from the recent Link’s Awakening remake while another virtuoso created A Link Between Worlds diorama using the outside shell of the classic retro Gameboy. If Japanese animation is something right down your street, check out a Studio Ghibli-style Breath of the Wild fan-made animated trailer, while a dedicated fan spent two years recreating Breath of the Wild weapons. We even saw an incredibly well done animated pixel art mockup of a dungeon scene from Zelda II. The winner for last year’s official Link’s Awakening fanworks contest was revealed, with some great submissions from plenty of talented artists. And if you want something incredible from outside this contest, there’s this fantastic 3D printed recreation of Koholint Island from the game. The artist even provides a tutorial at the end of their video in case anyone else wanted to make one for themselves.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild really is the gift that just keeps giving, whether it’s through some unique gameplay techniques or the hundreds of fan art pieces seen time after time, it looks like Breath of the Wild has some punch still left in it. If you’re wondering when the sequel to Breath of the Wild is releasing, unfortunately, we probably won’t know for quite some time yet. If you still haven’t played it yet, why not jump into The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening right now for Nintendo Switch and you can also check out our review of the game right here where it received a very healthy score of 10/10.
