These Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Paper Sculptures Catch the Eye

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Yours for just 300 rupees

Just yesterday we reported on the potential for LEGO Zelda to become a reality, but today we bring you a 'papersculpt' display of items from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Created by Cameron Garland, this art piece contains items made entirely of paper and displayed within a 9"x9" shadow box frame. Clearly a fan of the series, Garland has given it the title IT'S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE! TAKE THESE, with plenty of memorable items from the Wii/GameCube game. Each individual part is hand-cut, with the project apparently taking eight months in total to complete.

Anyone interested in buying this may need to smash some pots and cut the grass for some rupees, as it's priced at $300 excluding shipping costs. If you'd like to see more, check out the Etsy page.

Darn don't have enough.
Looks like I'm going to have to go raiding into Hyrule, looking for octorocks, and stealing their rupies by defeating it.

300$ Is too much probably just a little less than what the Wii U will cost. I'm kinda broke right now, and I need money for the Wii U, a good PC, and all the awesome games coming on.

That's too much for a bunch of paper cuts.

I think the crafter would make more money selling the patterns instead.

Ouroborous is right, although the website itself lists it as $8 USD if you live there. $30 would be for Canadians, and $70 for the rest of the world.

I have no idea what Thomas was thinking, since he put the wrong price twice in the article.

@Ouroborous, @sinalefa: note that the line says 'it's priced at $300 excluding shipping costs' — he's referring to the original cost of the 3D papersculpt item itself, and nowhere has he mentioned shipping (which are the prices you've found listed on the page, sinalefa).

Ouroborous may have stumbled upon the prints, which are indeed $30, but as the item is already sold and we can't see the price of the original anymore, it may well have been $300.

@TBD

Thanks for clearing that up. So the prices I saw are just for shipping? $70 for shipping outside of US/Canada is a lot of money.

@sinalefa: yeah, once an item is sold Etsy takes its price down. that shipping cost may include insurance and special handling, given that you wouldn't really want to crush that kind of thing, lol. international shipping will get you :/
