Go check out rangerboard.com

There's a load of people on there with experience in Ranger propmaking and such. There are even a few sellers who specialize in PR costuming and they have Dragon Shields for sale. Look up King_Ranger on there for the most screen-accurate shield you've ever seen. I'm KibaRanger on that site, but I'm totally useless for costuming. XD

I totally agree with SpartanNinja. I'm Reimon Marika on rangerboard, and King Ranger makes the best shield. He's using materials from Japan, and has taken the time to make it very acurate. He's like that.

You could make it out of foamies like what you get at Walmart. That's assuming you had some practice with it. I won;t say I could make it because I don't want people asking me too. Learned that mistake when I said in theory I could make a suit for Renamon.

I'd say go with the foamie method for fairly decent looking (although not 100% perfect results). Check out my version I made entirely from different thickness foamies, hot glue, gold spray paint, black sharpie, gold strapping (for underarm strap) and some velcro for the closure.

on RB... sushiya has one... got help from King Ranger. itt looks fantasic! $200. not a bad price. sushiya makes great stuff.

that will be your best bet. and the $700 for the full costume is not bad either.

Well so far I'm going with limebarb for my boots,body suit, belt, holster, and gloves/gauntlets.
I'm not sure who to go with for the helmet yet, and I'm still trying to see if i can get king ranger to make my shield.

My green ranger costume is REALLY bad, BUT for the $50 (Assume the price hasn't changed) I paid on e-bay it might be a good base for the gloves and shield.

sorry to revive a dead thread, but where in a wallmart will I find foamies
I like the looks of that shield and it looks simple enough to build myself.

Thanks!
