While Zelda players gather bomb flowers and boomerangs, Norway’s Anne Martha Harnes has collected 1,816 individual items connected with the video game series.
As a result of her dedication and fandom, Anne-Martha has entered the new Guinness World Records 2018 Gamer’s Edition with the title Largest collection of The Legend of Zelda memorabilia.
To celebrate the achievement we asked her to dress up as the videogame’s heroine, Princess Zelda, for our photo shoot at her parents’ home in Molde, Norway, where she keeps her extensive collection.
Anne Martha started amassing memorabilia related to Nintendo’s iconic action-adventure fantasy series back in 2008.
Her favourite game in the series is the Ocarina of Time sequel Majora’s Mask, released in 2000.
When it was reviewed by Guinness World Records on 14 July 2016, Anne-Martha’s collection was found to include a huge variety of items such as 1980s-vintage card games, life-size statues, costumes and even an inflatable version of the series’ antagonist, Ganondorf.
“My favourite item in my collection is from Majora’s Mask – the fish bone guitar called ‘Zoraxe’,” she said.
