Homemade Princess Zelda Action Figure: Sometimes Wet Clay Can Hold Steady for a Long Time

I was fist introduced the Zelda franchise when I was ten. Am I the only one who first thought Zelda was really Link?

There are many versions of Princess Zelda, but Twilight Princess is my favorite, mainly because it’s the most realistic.

I consider this one an experimental doll. The armor, jewels, hair and ears are made out of clay that never hardens. Paint gives it a protective coating, but I wish I had found my stone clay that hardens eventually before I decided to make it. Still, I’m relatively satisfied with the results. The apron is made out of paper, so I better hope it never gets wet.

Sorry that a couple of pics look a bit blurry. When I get a better handle on Photoshop, I’ll fix them up.


Homemade Midna Action Figure: The Zelda Franchise Needs Her Back

I didn’t even get through Twilight Princess and I still want this character back in some future Zelda game.

I’m not a Navi hater unlike a lot of Zelda fans, but she had no real personality or charm. Midna on the other hand had both as well as some depth. Is it any small wonder that I want her to be a future love interest for Link rather than the 2-D pacifistic Zelda? The creators said they might bring her back if they hear enough bitching requests from fans, so I’m adding my voice to theirs.


This was the first time I used paper towels for the clothing rather than toilet paper. TP is just too weak when wet if I’m making something that doesn’t directly stick to the doll’s body. The crown is made of cut up thin straws with little lumps of clay at the ends. A needle was used for the designs on her skin.

I know I made her dress wrong. It’s supposed to be a skirt that bares one leg rather than a long loin cloth. When I made this, the pictures of Midna in her true form available on the Internet weren’t exactly top quality and I got confused.

Oh, well. C’est la vie.
