It's time to save the world

What do you say to that, Link? Nothing! Get it? Because Link doesn't talk! Okay, whatever. Anyway, here is Link! I was going to wait to post him until we had Zelda done, but I'm impatient and I want to show him off now, so here he is!
I think he's so adorable! I hardly did any work on him either, the boyfriend did most of the work this time. He did all of the decorative stitching and everything, which goes all around his hat and his tunic. He has little gauntlets too, which I think look a little cumbersome, but the boyfriend likes them. Anyway, that is just a picture of plain Link, here's a picture of his accessories.
He has a Master Sword, a shield, an ocarina, and a lonlon milk bottle. It's really very cute, it has a little label with a little cow on it and everything. We just found these little empty bottle charm thingies at Hobby Lobby, and he painted the inside white with a little paint and then taped the little label on. And Link can carry everything on him, too, except the ocarina. Like Boromir, his shield attaches to his back, and his sword fits in behind the shield. The milk can be attached on the belt too, it has a little loop on the top. Here's a better view of how it attaches:
Anyway, I hope you guys like him! More pics on the flickr, as always. Zelda will be following soon (I hope...) but we're still working on the Star Trek people, so who knows when we'll get a chance to finish her. Hopefully we're going to have the Star Trek crew finished by next week--they are going to be SO cool, by the way--so that will free up some time to work on our little side projects. Of course, with Mass Effect taking up a lot of my free time, who knows. I'll try to stay on task though! Stay tuned!

Oh my goodness! This is your best yet. Will he be for sale? :)

Thank you! We'll probably put a Link up eventually (of course we had to make one to keep), we have the shield and sword and everything made, I just need to make the body for him.

Oh my goodness! You have certainly outdone yourself this time! He's PERFECT. I soooo want to buy him. Wow, I can't sing enough praise about him.

WOW. Just...wow. He looks so amazing! I would love to be able to make something like this. Not only have I been a Zelda fangirl my entire life (21 years in September, woohoo!), but my little brother is also a complete Zelda-junkie, and I think he would just die over this.

Seriously, the level of detail ya'll put in is incredible, and the fact that the boyfriend did a large chunk of the work is astounding. I wish I could get my husband to sew and craft with me, lol.

Hmm... The Lon Lon milk bottle looks identical to the ones being sold here. This user has been selling them since last year....Interesting

Well anon, you know, the design is actually from the game, so it's not really surprising that they would be similar. However, if you look closely at ours, it is a little more detailed--although we probably used the same charm from Hobby Lobby. I can assure you that we made them by hand (everything is drawn on, not printed from a computer) though, and we only copied Nintendo, not anyone else.

Anyway, thanks for pointing that out...I guess...

Wonderful, as always - but the real reason for the comment is I saw this and thought of you...

You've probably seen it, but I wanted to make sure :) I wouldn't want you miss out on a chance to put a question to Joss!

He is so cute!

Oh my goodness, that shield is AMAZING. I'm constantly impressed by the boyfriend's polymer skill.

Aw, I love it! :D
So cute. I swear, every time I go onto this site, I always come off again determined to try making my own amigurumis. And then it always goes badly wrong. XD

This is so awesome. :D

Are you ever going to offer this Link doll on your etsy shop again? I'd be extremely interested in buying one or two of them.

How did you make the hat? I'm trying to make it for myself and I'm stuck on the hat.
