I like this because it’s very different. KinokoKoneko says, “I’ve been playing The Wind Waker lately (MK8 promotion woooo!!) and in my head I imagined Link’s grandma getting bored of waiting for link to save aryll and feeling all alone and scared to the point where she’s just like “Ah forget this!” *Swigs elixir soup and bursts out of house wielding a sword to go chop up nighttime monsters* And this was the result of that little daydream.” I like it!
This lovely project was finished a while ago, but never found its way to the blog. SecondHand, from the forums, cross-stitched all these awesome Links and Triforces (Triforci?)
Navi, while being the most annoying fairy ever in Zelda history, is also a very popular character. And by popular I mean she’s been the butt of numerous jokes for a long time now. But that never stops the artists and crafters from portraying her in new ways, such as this lovely stitching by venea1391 on deviantART.
Inspired by the digital artwork by hextupleyoodot, this 13-colour stitching is really striking! venea also added Navi’s well-known phrases around her. Definitely the nicest Navi stitch I’ve seen for a long time!
Danny Yama makes a unique style of perler bead characters… I really like the multiple layers to give the characters some thickness and depth. He has many more examples on his flickr page but I’ve chosen to include my favorites of megaman and link. I think the best part about making them three layers thick is that they stand up all by themselves.
