DarlingArmy, on deviantART and Facebook, has created a very wide array of nerdy dress-up items. I’ll show you some of the gamer ones, including the Zelda kimono dress above.

LTTP light and dark worlds pillow

Friday, August 15th, 2014



I posted a stitched light world last week for World Cross Stitch Day, but here is another incarnation of it, this time with the light and the dark world! lpgeorge123 says, “It took me about 2+ years, but I have finally completed both of the maps from A Link to the Past, and today I was able to turn them into a little pillow. It was my first time really using a sewing machine, which was both fun and terrifying. I also decided to use minimal stuffing as I wanted the maps to be mostly flat, and then curved along the edges near the clouds. Overall it looks great as a decorative pillow. Thanks again Servotron for making these awesome patterns! Now that they’re complete I really don’t know what to make next. ”

Amazing work! (I would be a bit afraid to actually use the pillow…)


Crocheted Zelda outfit

Monday, August 11th, 2014


AngelAndChangeling, over at DeviantArt, handmade this costume. She says, “I completely crocheted the costume, except for the tights and some non-yarn components necessary for function. I was Zelda from Skyward Sword in her Wing Ceremony outfit.” I love that she even has yarn hair! 

Here is another shot:

Paper craft shadowboxes

Monday, August 4th, 2014

ShadowofDorkness created some interesting designs using paper and shadowboxes. They are very well done, and a different idea. They also made me think of the ongoing challenge for this month: silhouettes.


Link’s grandma sculpture

Monday, July 21st, 2014

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! :)


Link baby blanket

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

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?)
