Zelda Fanart Spotlight- Crafts Special

HachiJanuary 9th, 2013 by Hachi

Welcome to another Fanart Spotlight. While searching for something to feature this week, I couldn’t help but notice a huge trend in functional Zelda Fan work. Everything from a completely handmade Majoras Mask Backpack, to Zelda themed cookies almost too beautiful to take a bite out of, I couldn’t just narrow it down to one artist.

So today will be another special edition of the Fanart Spotlight featuring artisan crafts. With so much neat stuff packed into one post, you won’t want to miss out on this one!


First off we have an adorable crochet Link plushie. Standing at a mere five inches, the amount of detail packed in this little guy is astonishing. Even his shield has tiny details to it.

Next us is this Sheik plushie. Anyone who has ever tried to paint on fabric will know that it can be quite a challenge, however the painted on features such as the eyes and the emblem on her chest are wonderfully handled. The details on this plush make it seem like something that you could find in a store as official Nintendo merchandise.

I’ve seen a lot of video game themed pastries before, but these by far are the most well-done and detailed. Featuring characters from many different games including Twilight Princess, Majora’s Mask, Oracle of Seasons, and Ocarina of Time, I would have a hard time choosing which character to bite into.

A fully detailed Majora’s Mask backpack, that was completely hand-made. There is not even a word in the english language that expresses how cool of an idea this is. By the way, she also made a Hylian Shield backpack as well.

Please note that these are either one of a kind for the artists own use or were paid commissioned. If you are interested in commissioning one of these artists, please visit their individual DeviantART page for more information.

Is there any of these that you would love to have in your collection? Tell us in the comments below!

    • Zelda_1224

      Think your a little late there bro

    • Linkfan99

      “Troll you”? You’re the one trolling here, idiot. Plus, YOU’RE NOT EVEN FIRST.

  • Princess Zelda

    Nice!

  • guest-Strong Bad’s assisant

    I think I would have a hard time putting the majora’s mask backpack on, (y’know, the whole “The mask is cursed thing”) but I would go on the shield one

  • TrueMasterSwordWielder

    I want the Majora’s Mask backpack! I’m instantly gonna be the coolest kid in school with that!

  • linkypete

    I can’t decide which one I want more… Why is it always so difficult?!?!?

  • Someone

    That looks all so awesome, and I just love the Link plushie!
    And.. … I want to taste the COOKIES! <3

  • Link

    Sheik plushie is sooo cute!

  • Cmaster

    Those cookies look really good.

  • The Hylian Monolith

    There are awesome! But it’s also worth noting that I intend to make one of my fabulous duct tape wallets(like, a really good normal wallet, just made of duct tape. Most have zippered coin pouches :O) and add designs to it. I can’t decide between a Master Sword and Spiritual Stones design, a King of Red Lions with a full image and close-up with Medli and Makar on the other side, or an MM-themed one with Majora’s Mask, Tatl and Tael, and the Moon, maybe with some masks.
    Surprisingly enough, the MM one would be the simplest design… Huh. Thoughts?

    • JeredenDonnar

      Spiritual Stones or medallions sounds like a great idea!

  • Jam9t3

    Wow is it baking and knitting season or what? lol jk

  • lan lan cow

    Moooo. Make sure you dip your cookies in lan lan’s milk. Moooo.

  • Darkgreyfire

    The cookies look really good. But, why Tingle? I wouldn’t want Tingle in my digestive system. Creepy.

    And you can most likely get all this stuff on Etsy, for around five hundred dollars each. People always mark that stuff up too high.

  • JeredenDonnar

    Love the backpack. I’m waiting for when someone makes an actual Mask of Majora, you know, a real Majora’s Mask.

  • Link5968

    Hey, Hachi I discovered this YouTuber called ArtistOfTheUniverse and he makes Zelda figures out of toilet paper and it’s just amazing! I don’t know the guy personally but he deserves more than 4 subscribers. Here’s a link to his best video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IIYhJBFfeOo Please watch it he deserves to be discovered!
