Legend of Zelda Halo Mash-Up Turns Link into a Spartan
What if Link was a soldier? He’s an adventurer in Legend of Zelda but imagine the character in Halo. This mash-up by Ten D. Motomochi combines Link and a Spartan from the militaristic first person shooter game. Motomochi has made Halo armor before, and he built this set with all sorts of nods to Link for Phoenix Comicon earlier this year. The most obvious touch is the gold and green paint, and the costume also features the Triforce symbol as well as some more subtle touches. My favorite part of the mash-up is the energy sword. It’s inspired by Link’s Master Sword, and the hilt and finish on the prop is beautiful.
