Legend of Zelda Fan Spent Two Years Recreating Breath of the Wild Weapons
An incredible Legend of Zelda fan has spent two years lovingly recreating weapons from Breath of the Wild from simple materials.
An extremely talented Reddit user tomvdcr has been working on quite the impressive fan project by recreating various weapons from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Some highlights include the Guardian Sword, Guardian Shield, Sword of the Six Sages, and the Sheikah Slate. According to the poster, “Most of [these weapons are] made from evafoam and pvc pipes.”
Considering the simple material used for these weapons, the attention to detail in each piece is incredible and really shows how devoted of a fan they are. My personal favorite is the Sword of the Six Sages — I can’t resist a cool glowing sword after all.
There are of course some other amazing fan works from other Zelda titles that fans have created to celebrate the franchise as a whole. We have an animated pixel art mockup of a dungeon scene from Zelda II. Back in September the winner for an official Link’s Awakening fanworks contest was revealed, with some incredible submissions from plenty of talented artists. And if you want something incredible from outside this contest, there’s this incredible 3D printed recreation of Koholint Island from the game. The artist even provides a tutorial at the end of their video in case anyone else wanted to make one for themselves.
Some other works include Link’s house from Breath of the Wild faithfully created using Lego blocks, this lovely Sheikah runes phone charger, art of Twilight Princess meets Breath of the Wild, fanart of Link in the vibrant forest from Majora’s Mask, a recreation of the Breath of the Wild lantern, a bottle of Lon Lon milk from Ocarina of Time, and an alarm clock that plays A Link to the Past‘s theme.
