View Full Version : Hylian shield and Master sword

05-13-2010, 10:44 AM
I am working on props for an upcoming con < but you already knew that > for a friend of mine. the shield is almost finished but the problem is the master sword. we found out metal weapons are banned <after buying a very nice replica i might add> so we thought it would be best just to make a cast and foam one up with great stuff. The question is what can i cast with? Silicones a little out of range at the moment but i do have plenty of plaster paste. would that work just as well?

I made mine entirely from cardboard (and lots of it)! For the outer layer I used some thin and smooth paper to paint on ^^/

I have some pictures of the process here: http://www.cosplay.com/gallery/158766/p2

Otherwise use Featherweight (http://www.cosplay.com/member/36633/) as inspiration ^^ in his gallery you can find both the shield and the master sword and he makes them from cardboard only, too :D
