deviantART member Botjira makes amazing collages of video game, TV show, anime and other geeky characters. Even though the individual pieces that are patched together to make each work are not that small, they’re still quite detailed.
A long time ago – the late 80s – in a land far, far away – Hyrule – there began an interactive tale about power, wisdom and courage, embodied by an artifact called the Triforce. It was split into many fragments that the hero had to collect to save the land and the princess.
We’ve seen tons of LEGO versions of video game characters, but this is the first time I’ve seen ones that are this accurate. You see it’s not just the shapes and details that Flickr member Meufer perfectly converted from pixels to blocks, she also got the colors right.
With its big and bright Legend of Zelda crest, this towel could earn you new gamer friends at the beach. And when you’re giving up on getting through the Water Temple, this is the appropriate towel to throw.
John Buonvino’s user name on DeviantART says it all: “NES–still-the-best”. He paid homage to his favorite console by making 3D voxel renderings of many popular NES games. Buonvino considers his Super Mario Bros. render below to be his “final 8-bit magnum opus”:
Mike Choi busks for money every Saturday at Little Tokyo in LA. He plays the melodica quite well and also takes requests, but you should really hear him play his geeky repertoire – themes from classic Nintendo video games like Super Mario Bros.,
I’m quite late to Oliver Taylor’s ocarina party, but even with close to three hundred thousand views his perfect, no-look rendition – via Link – of the Tetris theme in Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a tune that still needs to be spread around.
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so make sure you’re well-equipped! Travel to the shop of Etsy merchant PaperRockScisorz and buy these awesome valentine cards, each with an adorable video game-related message of love.
What would Zelda and Peach talk about if they got together for a cup of coffee? Well, College Humor decided to see where this would go. It’s probably best that these two video game characters don’t come out and play too often.
Where he’s going, he will need the Triforce:
What started out as a Photoshopped image by Chad Daniels has rightfully been turned into a shirt by Caldwell Tanner and Shawn Handyside.
You can get the A Link to the Future T-shirt at Level Up Studios; the men’s shirt sells for $19 (USD) while the women’s shirt costs $20.
While this Zelda-inspired t-shirt hasn’t yet been made yet, I’m really hoping that this design does get produced.
This absolutely perfect Link-inspired t-shirt design was submitted by unwohltaeter over on Threadless, and if you vote for it enough, it could get made into an actual shirt you could be wearing to your next geeky outing.
Link is one of the most cosplayed video game characters partly because his clothes and gear are relatively simple, but of course it takes extra effort to make a spot-on Link. The Zelda Project not only want to bring Link to life, they want to make an Ocarina of Time short film.
Itching for a classic platforming game? Why not revisit the original Super Mario Bros.? Oh sure, you’ve finished it tons of times, but that’s with Mario. Now you can adventure on the Mushroom Kingdom with Link, Samus, Simon Belmont, Mega Man and – this is just so unfair – Bill from Contra in Super Mario Crossover.
