Hylian Shield Compilation by Amouranth Hylian Shield Compilation by Amouranth
My Hylian Shield's paint job is at last complete! All that's left is to attach the back handle and strap. (: Then work on the Master Sword and scabbard shall commence!
Once I finish the shield entirely, I'll take pictures of it while in my Link cosplay.

The structural base and shapes were made out of foamcore board, which I then covered completely in craft foam.

I made the edging surface intentionally warped to be more realistic. The Link I'm portraying in my skit is at the very end of the game, after he's battled every boss and endured all the monsters and elements. He's been through a mountain of lava, causing the metal to warp and then through blizzardous regions, allowing for even more distortion. Not to mention all the bashing from combat it's taken. That thing is NOT going to be perfectly smooth and pristine by the end of the game. xD

But it's the Hylian Shield! XD It's impervious!

Of course I am! ;)

And technically, the shield would have no reason to be impervious. It's bought at store, made by mortals. It wasn't a gift from the goddesses like the Master Sword. That prop WILL be flawless with no sign of age xD

And thank you!

Well, in Skyward Sword, it was a gift from Lanayru for beating 9 boss enemies without break. But, yes, in other games, it is made by mortals. XD
I'm looking forward to seeing your cosplay and you're very welcome! ^_^

This is true, but I was referring to Twilight Princess. xD
I have pictures in my gallery of the rest of my cosplay so far if you're curious/haven't seen them~

I must say that I love the feelings you put into this. I can never think that link's shield would look smooth and "new" after batteling so many enemies and bosses too, so I love the way you made it, It looks so much more realistic! One of the best shields I've seen, Good job! :D
