Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by my page, unfortunately I am not as active on DA posting content as much as I'd like.
You can always follow my work on my more active pages here:
Sheik - Ocarina of Time by yamin0
Sheik - Ocarina of Time
Character: Sheik
Series: Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time / Smash Bros Brawl
Cosplayer: Yamino
Photographer: Kaminsky Kandids Photography​

I wanted to take aspects from both designs of Sheik and that's how I came up with this version. I am quite happy with my modifications since the first time I debuted her (shown here).

My alias is: Yamino, but my real name is Lyn. I'm an artist, costume designer by day, cosplayer by night, and a total geek for the rest of my life!

I remember the first time I started to really get into drawing, illustration was my biggest outlet for expressing myself and growing up through those angst filled teenage years.

I've made art part of my life since then and have no regrets. -With every piece I work on I learn new techniques and I hope to refine my skills as the years roll on.

I began cosplay at the 2004 Ohayocon, in Columbus, Ohio (my hometown). Instantly, I was bit by the bug. My first cosplay was Freya [Dark Chii], from Chobits - one of the first manga series I completed.

Since then I have created many costumes, spanning from Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Comics, Video Games, and Anime. All of my costumes are custom created and personally hand crafted-unless stated otherwise.

Cosplay crafting for me, is about the journey of creating a piece from beginning to end and learning new and inventive ways to bring a character to life in the closest replicated way.

Cosplay in general, I believe is for everyone. The community should be a place to make new friends and connections to people from all over that share the same interest. It's about supporting other's fandoms and building them up instead of tearing them down. Cosplay is for everyone.


Cosplay isn't my life...not yet. I still work a fulltime job as a costume designer for a resident theater company and I aspire to own my own art/costume studio one day or even teach art to young children.

If you are interested in having a costume or prop commissioned please feel free to contact me via Facebook or through my e-mail.

If you would also like to set up a photoshoot please contact me via Facebook or e-mail.
