legend of zelda

herooftime copy

The Game of Thrones intro is a work of art. But what would it look like if the story was set in Hyrule? The Pixel Kingdom came up with a video that puts a fun, Zelda spin on the GoT intro.

Check it out in the video after the break…

zelda papercraft top

Love tiny things? Me too! Artist Cameron Garland is exceptionally skilled with both miniatures and papercraft, and he combined his talents to make itty bitty props from Legend of Zelda, Adventure Time, and Sailor Moon. From Link’s shield to the Sailor Scout lockets to Marceline’s axe guitar – he’s made a little bit of everything on a small scale. He displays his work in a shadowbox, and I wish they were all for sale.

Check out more of Garland’s paper miniatures after the break.

treasure header

Playing Legend of Zelda is fun, but how about going on a real life treasure hunt? Once in a while, Redditor evildeadite puts together a treasure chest full of Hyrule booty. The most recent box was filled with stained glass jewelry and Zelda art made from Perler beads. When the box is ready, evildeadite hides the treasure in the woods of Austin. He does it for kicks, and if you want to get a note with a location clue for the next box, you can just message him on Reddit.

zelda tarot main

This Legend Of Zelda Tarot Deck by Pixel Perks is a beautiful example of what happens when one geekdom meets another and a new thing of beauty is born.

Whether you read Tarot or you just like unique decks, this is definitely a cool set of Major Arcana, and Pixel Perks says she’s working on a Minor Arcana as well and will have full 78-card decks available sometime in May.

zelda figure 1

Count your rupees because if you’ve been waiting for a perfect Zelda statue to come along, it’s your lucky day. First 4 Figures, creators of this epic Link and Epona piece, have just made the Twilight Princess version of Zelda available for pre-order. She’s part of their “Master Arts” line and stands at 17-inches tall (including the base). The sculpt is elegant and oh so very detailed.

Every piece of her armor and jewelry appears to be carefully reproduced. You can see the pale embroidery pattern on the bottom of her dress, and the fabric looks realistic. I’m amazed by the paint job, and I can only imagine how good it must look in person. The series of collectible statues is limited to just 2,500 pieces.

papercraft elsa

As much as I love buying prints and posters, I’m always on the lookout for different kinds of art to put on my walls. I like variety, and these incredible papercraft designs by The Paper Pony blew me away! The Etsy shop features intricate paper art inside shadowboxes, and they are highly detailed and so very, very pretty. I especially love the use of different textures. Their work features characters from Frozen, Game of Thrones (Daenerys and her dragons!), Doctor Who, Legend of Zelda, and many others. You can even commission a design if you don’t see your favorite franchise represented in their shop.

Each piece is made by hand so there will be slight variations – which I think makes this art even cooler. Turnaround time is 3-4 weeks.

Geeky welcome mats 1

If you’re a fellow geek, you’re probably regularly looking for ways to incorporate your favorite fandoms into your home decor. Our Nerd Home has a fantastic and simple suggestion for you: add some nerd to your welcome mats! All you need is a plain welcome mat from places like Ikea or Target, a stencil, pins, and spray paint. They opted to go with the Star Trek symbol and a Triforce pattern for their first two mats. I can’t wait to try this out.

legend of zelda cross stitch

Cross-stitching may be one of the easiest crafts to learn, but it’s also one of the most tedious and time-consuming. Redditor tibtibs has won the game of patience with this Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past map. She spent about 400-500 hours over a nine month period working on this project from a free pattern. I admire her fortitude as I would have given up sometime in the first 50 hours. I have no idea how her eyes didn’t cross. Wow.

zelda samurai header

Sumi-e painting is a Japanese style of brush painting, and illustrations using the style have a distinctive look. DeviantArt user MyCKs has applied the painting technique to characters from Legend of Zelda but also to some familiar faces from Mass Effect, Tomb Raider, and Lord of the Rings. She’s given the characters cool, samurai-inspired outfits to make them look extra awesome. I’d love to see a cosplayer take on the Zelda outfit pictured above.

live action legend of zelda

The Legend of Zelda series has taught me at least two things: fairies can be frakking annoying and masks are scary. Last month we saw a creepy live action short about the beginnings of Majora’s Mask, and now the guys at Mars Rising have created a live action fan film about a Dark Mask. The powers of the mask sort of remind me of the One Ring; it’s bad news. The short doesn’t have amazing production quality and hits a couple of cheesy notes, but at just over three minutes, it’s still entertaining and worth a watch.
