Let's say you want to make your Skyrim character look really different, but don't want to have he/she looking like Lightning out of Final Fantasy XIII. You could always make them look like Link instead!
The "A Skyrim Link Armor" mod by Handski takes some existing pieces of clothing in the game world and modified and/or simply re-coloured them, adds a Master Sword and Hylian Shield (which were actually the work of another modder, Tom Campbell), and also gives tips on how to make your character look more "Elven" in the style of Link, as opposed to Tamriel's general interpretation of the race.
The end result? A pretty impressive recreation of Zelda's star, ready to wander around the icy wilderness getting punched skyward, with his sword, by giants.
