Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Make Your Own Damn Zelda New 3DS XL: Winners!

Undaunted by the seeming shortage of Majora's Mask limited edition New Nintendo 3DS XL consoles hitting North America on February 13, our Photoshop-savvy readers made their own, resulting in possibly the largest number of entries in 'Shop Contest history, all of them gorgeous.

When I say they are all gorgeous, I mean it. Nearly every single entry in last week's contest was an obvious labor of love. In fact, I went back through the comment section and approved every single grayed-out entry, so once you're done here be sure to check out the original post for all of these glorious results.

Judging by reactions in that post and my own beating heart, there was a clear winner this week at least, and that was sciteach with his riff on the original gold Nintendo cartridge for the first The Legend of Zelda game. It concentrated all the love in one spot.

Normally I pick 20 or so entries to spotlight along with the winner. This week it's more like 40. You people are the best.
