I hope my references are good enough for someone to work with, and please notify me if not, i'll dig up some better references, thanks beforehand.

Hi Doomguy. The BotW requests are new, but OoT is old enough that we already have some relevant material in the archive. Hair imports; SWF files. You don't need to accept those files, but it would be useful to explain why they don't work (e.g. wrong hair color, incorrect sleeve length, etc) so that modders can better understand what you're looking for.

Regarding weapon accessories: please remember that these items tend to be indistinct when viewed in profile. The Hylian crest and Triforce symbol would be distorted and partially hidden by the camera angle. If the shield is drawn at full size then it might interfere with the girl's hands in the "behind back" position. The winged hilt on the sword wouldn't be obvious when seen edge-on. Of course, the artist can compensate by twisting these objects to present more of a face view to the camera. But you can potentially make their job easier by finding side-view reference images in which this "twisting" trick has already been applied.

Please remember that photographs and videogame screenshots are not ideal reference material for SDT mods. You can keep these images, but you should try to supplement them with anime-style illustrations (example). Remember also that modders need a few different views of the bracers and gloves in order to setup all of the hand-pose variations used by SDT.

It would also be useful to include a few side-view "action shot" reference images which depict Link sneaking or crouching (or praying, I suppose). These images can help modders to accurately depict the trousers and boots in the kneeling posture used by SDT.

Finally, you should discuss gender stuff. Are these costume mods meant to be used by a male link exclusively? Are they supposed to be flat-chested, or do they need to support breast slider functionality? If you're asking for breast support, then you should try to find a few reference images which show the costume fitted onto a feminized body. Or you could perhaps find fanart which puts Link's costume onto Zelda's body -- we need an idea of the shading, stretching, cloth folds, etc ... which must appear as the costume changes shape to accommodate breasts.

Yeah, I've found a good link hair "Link (2).png" (Thanks btw, didn't know about the archive) but clothing-wise, there's just a kokiri outfit (Works well while doing child Link but that's not really my cup of tea), and I couldn't even find boots that resemble child Link's for that matter.

I have no problem with the sword being near indistinguishable from a normal sword, it's not a big deal (you know, it's not like Link goes everywhere showing off the master sword like it's advertising coca-cola or something), and regarding the shield, if it looks awkward then it's not Crucial and necessary for me to have it, I'm happy with just the holstered sword (holstered? not a native english speaker sorry :v).

Oh sorry, I used Google images to find the references (and sometimes being specific with a google search is futile), I'm gonna look for some in DevianArt instead, but they still work right?

Got it.

I personally would use it on a male character, but it'll be better with breast slider support, so that people wanting to use the mod on a female body have no issues, I'll dig up some references for that.

Thanks Stuntcock, I'll edit the post with new images when I can.

Try searching for the following tags: boots,female . I know that you're looking for a male scenario, but in SDT modding parlance "female" and "her" refer to the kneeling character. You'll find many items (including the Twilight Princess boots), some of which might be reasonably close to what you're looking for.

Costume mods are usually separable. You might find a satisfactory set of boots, but then you'll be disappointed because those boots are attached to a superhero costume which covers the entire body. That's ok! Just ask for a Revision -- or use the moreClothing mod to load the boots independently (and discard the remainder of the costume).

DeviantArt is fine. The source website doesn't matter. The images can be fanart, or official art, or pornographic illustrations, or screenshots from a TV show, or whatever. What matters is whether or not the image provides a clear side view of the item(s) or character(s) which you're asking for -- and whether or not the image matches the art style of SDT.

The Reference Shot Guide explains the requirements in detail, and it lists a few websites as recommended sources. Please take a look at that guide if you haven't already done so.
