Video Game Crafts ‘N Gear #18: Super Mario Easter Eggs, Pokemon Rubber Ducks, Zelda Papercrafts

It’s a Nintendo special this week on Video Game Crafts ‘N Gear, with three of the company’s biggest franchises appearing in amazing custom-made creations. Mario and Luigi find a new power-up that turns them into eggs, enjoy Pokemon in the tub and Zelda characters come to life in some unbelievable papercrafts!

Super Mario Easter Eggs

It’s a little early for Easter right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get in the spirit with some awesome gaming-themed eggs. Mario, Luigi, Toad and more are transformed into 3D ovals by Instructables‘ Super Mario Bros. easter eggs!

There’s a step by step guide on how you can make your own, and what better time to prepare for the upcoming holiday. All you need are some eggs and acrylic paint!

Pokemon Rubber Ducks

Rubber ducks are great companions in the bathtub, carelessly floating and through the bubbly surface. Still, I bet they’d suck in a Pokemon battle. Thankfully, Zibbet user DuckandCover has made it possible to use that precious cleaning time to continue training your Pokemon.

This set transforms the original trio of legendary birds, Moltres, Articuno and Zapdos,  into adorable aquatic toys. Don’t worry about Moltres being a fire-type – it looks pretty happy to me!

Zelda Papercrafts

At first glance, these look like official, solid 3D statues. When in fact, these stunning crafts were made entirely out of paper. And it’s not your usual origami that can sit in your hand – the Princess Zelda below is 5’6″ tall!

The princess took a whopping 226 hours for papercraft pioneer and Deviantart user minidelirium to complete, and the effort and attention to detail is clear to see. But she’s also made many more paper pals based on the Zelda series, and even other beloved franchises. Check out her gallery!
