As far as Zelda shirts go, it's one of the best I've ever seen. Still not for me, but definitely works in a lot more than a dude in a green sock hat or three triangles that make a bigger one.

But you'd call this a zelda shirt though, right?

I wouldn't consider myself an authority on the subject, but it seems like one to me.

Yes, that's obvious, what isn't obvious is "is Trienforcers a Zelda Shirt."

What's your opinion on that quabaq?

I'm no expert, but that bird symbol looks awfully Zelda.

That was my thought, and the Triange is Triforcish, though the Star of David isn't exactly part of that. The swirls aren't quite from WindWaker, and the Sun and Moon isn't quite from Majora's Mask. Those Grapple Hooks aren't the style of Link's Grapple.

The legend " Star Circus Game Realm Champions" isn't anything that suggested it to my mind. And Yet the whole gives the Zelda impression.

Zelda was the first thing I thought of, to be honest.

I'm with bounty, I can't figure out if this is Zelda or not. All the signs don't really match up, but when I looked at it, the first impression I got also was "Zelda" for some reason.

I really think THIS is the Ultimate Parody Shirt. It walks right up to the line and sticks out it's tongue, but never quite steps over it.

Its definitely the bird wings that push it to making me think of Zelda. Its just way too close to the Hylian Crest and thats all I see when I look at it.

Re: Trienforcers


LOL Nice discussion you have here. It's -obviously- a Zelda spoof.

Just wanted to do the thing, but without any copyright infringement, so I tought that a sport parody design would do the trick.

By the way, I have the same design but with all the zelda symbols and stuff in the right and original way, but I guess it would be rejected in the same time Flash says "hello".

As far as parodys go, this is definitely so well done, because of the fact that we even HAD to have a discussion about whether or not it was a parody. ;) Hold onto this one and try it at Threadless when it's lockout is up
