My husband and I both love old school Zelda games. My crafty friend Lee whipped these up using Perler beads, which exactly mimic 8-bit graphics. These are characters from Link's Awakening (Link and Marin) but altered to look more like us.
This is how my boyfriend proposed to me, he made a full kill room Dexter style with this on the wall and the ring tied up with red wool blood splatter analysis style!
Nothing says true romance like a heartfelt message written in somebody else's blood!
