Win a Signed DSi: The Eleven Zelda Fan Finalists

Illustration for article titled Win a Signed DSi: The Eleven Zelda Fan Finalists

Last month... last year we asked you to show your Zelda pride not just by bragging about your ability to buy things or knowledge of the franchise, but by making you get out there and proselytize.


The reward?

A copy of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, a Spirit Tracks t-shirt, a $1,000 Nintendo World Store gift card, a Zelda's "biggest fan" trophy and a white Nintendo DSi system personally signed by longtime Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma.

We've looked over the entries and selected our 11 favorites as finalists. Now it's up to you to decide which will win the grand prize. The remaining ten will receive a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks game and a Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks t-shirt.

We'll leave the voting open until midnight Mountain time on Sunday. You can vote once a day. Please check over all of the entries, from videos to pamphlets to photos, before voting. Everyone put a lot of effort into their entries.

Thanks to everyone who entered.



I gotta say that in the face of...

"We'd ask and you'd deliver with amazing, inspired photos of yourself posing, showing off items, doing silly stunts. But that's been done to death."

It just makes it really hard to view Nerve11's entry as valid. Was his inclusion (and at the top, no less!) some kind of punishment to all the other contestants for not getting that 'stadium' of people to hold up kotaku signs? Is it your point that the efforts of the entrants who actually recruited were so pitiful that any great costume, though 'done to death', would STILL trounce them?

Costumes (especially ones like Nerve11's) look cooler than small smatterings of fans (or families) holding signs. Readers will see a character they can identify and like it more. A great many of the readers won't have read the rules, and vote anyway, going for the entry that is most visually striking. And the costume is the first one, so a few especially impatient people will just vote right there.

...But it'll be like winning a powerwalk race by sprinting, man.
