Nintendo fans gives Nike Dunks a Yoshi makeover

Now this is an impressive custom pair of sneaks

We've seen plenty of official Nintendo sneaker collabs in the past, and some of them have been pretty fantastic. That said, there might be none better than this custom pair of Nike Dunks.

This Nike Dunks reconstruction, created by Kenneth Cole Customs, definitely captures the colors and feel of Yoshi. The color scheme is absolutely spot-on, and the ribbing around the swoosh logo is a really nice tough.

Legend of Zelda fans crafts Link completely out of cardboard

A little Labo Link!

We've seen Legend of Zelda fan-art in all different styles over the years, yet somehow fans manage to come up with new ways to show their appreciation for the series. Case in point, the above Link creation, which is made entirely out of cardboard. This was made by Redditor CactusComics, and it took them 4 to 5 days of work. Even better, Link is articulated! You can move the arms, legs, head, and even remove the Master Sword from his back!

Artist recreates Pokemon Sword and Shield's Pokemon as Game Boy sprites

Can't beat the classics!

The Pokemon series may have started life on the Game Boy, but it's certainly come a long way since then. Pokemon in today's games are showcased with some lovely looking polygonal models, but longtime fans of the franchise are curious what today's Pokemon might look like in a classic style.

Artist makes wood carvings of classic GameCube game boxes

Classic and classy

Nintendo has had some gorgeous cover art for their games over the years. Boxes that instantly flood the mind with memories of great gaming adventures. Those classic covers can now stand on their own as works of art, thanks to one dedicated fan.

A woodworking artist going by Pigminted has taken covers from games like The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door and turned them into wooden cases. The designs look even more striking in this style, and obviously a lot of attention to detail went into the carvings. If you'd like to grab these cases, or perhaps see what other gaming tributes Pigminted has cooked up, you can check out their Etsy store here.

It's gonna blow!

Redditor Kittens9000 was in the Halloween spirit, and when they saw one pumpkin in particular, they were inspired. With some paper mache work and a love of all things Mario, Kittens9000 came up with the creation you see above! A pretty convincing Bob-omb, especially when you throw in the flickering light inside! There's even a paper mache key in the back. Thankfully, this sucker isn't actually primed to explode!

Pokemon fan turns double pumpkin into a Wheezing tribute

The perfect makeover

Redditor DoughCos is a big Pokemon fan, and he was thinking of decorating some pumpkins with Pokemon designs for Halloween. That's when he happened upon a double pumpkin that gave him the perfect idea. Instead of ditching the mutant pumpkin, he gave it a complete makeover to pay tribute to Wheezing. The likeness is pretty much perfect. Seems like the pumpkin was destined for this Wheezing makeover!
