Video Game Boom Box – Zelda’s Lullaby

When it comes to video games, romance isn’t exactly the predominant thing players think of. More often than not it’s tacked on with little thought given. Of course, that’s not to say it couldn’t be used in interesting ways, with the original NES Dragon Warrior being perhaps the most notable game to use love as a way to help the player. But even with that, there wasn’t much to give a sense of genuine emotion. However when Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released in 1998, music then became not just something to listen to during the game, but as a gameplay element that enhanced the experience in such a way that without it, the game would be incomplete. And with the music Koji Kondo came up with for this game, he also came up with a theme that was not necessarily a love theme, but yet was the closest thing we gamers would get to one, especially in regards to the distinct connection to the Hero of Time and the Princess of Hyrule. The fact that the romance seemed to be suggested/hinted at only made players more curious, and the fact that it wasn’t something thrown in their faces and was made more subtle made it fun, and all without detracting from the experience of the game, which combined with the music themes became a true masterpiece.

These garters are fantastic; as you can see the ones I reviewed are Legend of Zelda ones. They are satin with a Zelda charm. I love the shield and sword charms. The garters are also very well made. I love that they fit even girls with bigger legs. I know mine are 23 inches at the biggest part of my thigh.

I love the detail in the charm there is no mistaking what these garters are designed after. If I ever get married these will be the garters I wear for sure or I will get another set from Creative Garters!!

Lets just say that Zelda isn’t your thing! Not a problem there are so many options to choice from such as military, sports, and so much more. You can also make custom orders!! This is the perfect thing for geek girls weddings but they are also great additions to cosplay outfits!!
