Sale of the Century by wings33 Sale of the Century by wings33
Ho ho ho...
You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?
But you're just in time! I'm having a special sale today. I have traveled across time and distance, at great personal risk I might add, to acquire the fine selection you see before you. Each of these masks...
belonged to a great hero. Perhaps if you borrow one, it will help you on your journey.
Just have faith...


Aaaaand it's this year's entry to *Woodland-Mel's Zelda calendar contest. It is not nearly as clean as I would like it to be.... but things. So many things.

Theme this year is, fittingly, the History of Hyrule. To better explain my thought process, have this description:

"The Happy Mask Salesman is a bizarre, enigmatic character who seems to traverse not only parallel dimensions, but timelines as well. His quest for masks brings him into contact with one of the darkest magics in the Zelda universe, a forgotten relic from Hyrule's untold history. What other fragments of history might he collect on his travels... and to what end?"


...I had originally planned to finish this by July.

*Takes the Twi mask, pays the fee, plays the Song of Unhealing to it so he can go back to his original form.  As soon as Twi's soul goes back, I leave with him.* >:3


(Nice pic, BTW)

This is actually pretty disturbing. He had to hunt down every Link and seal each of their souls into a mask...

If masks are made from the spirits of dead people... does that mean he killed 5 different Links and turned their spirits into masks? It's creepy because I can actually see him doing that...

This is really creepy...I love it! It's got so much depth, like there's a whole story behind it, though all we see is just a glimpse. ^_^ Some of that story depth comes from our knowledge of the many Links' stories. :)

Definitely. I don't even know what the story is, but I love all the possibilities.

Well... it's meant to be child Link of OoT/MM, but I am now realizing that doesn't make sense because he grew up and became the Hero's Shade.... but uh....... let's just ignore that.
