I made this hat and mittens set for my partner in the Zelda Swap 2 and I got contacted by someone from Nintendo Power who wanted to feature it in the magazine. I was soooooo excited, but the problem was that he wanted high resolution pictures, and I only had taken one picture of the set before sending it. So I decided to redo a new set and take pictures of it. And it's really nice, because now I have my own set!

So here it is, in all it's NES glory!

Me with the set. I'm happy because it's one of the pictures that made it into the magazine!

Here is a concept picture with the original Zelda and Zelda 2 on the NES boxes.

Here is a detailed picture of the little Links on the hat.

And a last one, just for fun!

Now I'm thinking of doing similar sets, but a pink one with simplified Zeldas and a black one with simplified Ganondorfs.

UPDATE: Here is the grid chart I used as a base for the hat and mittens! I don't have the exact pattern though...

That is incredibly cool - they are definitely magazine-worthy.  My sister would be soooo jealous.
