So right now I'm planing to make a windwaker link for a con next year but I'm having a bit of trouble with finding replicas of the master sword and the mirror sheild that are in the game. So, I dicisded that the best thing to do is to make them both.......somehow. Anyway if you have any ideas on how to maked them then please let me know here.

im using a papercraft of the mastersword from twilight princess for a pattern, you could do the same, but i already have the blade, so most of its already done for me.

You could use something similar to this to make the blade for the sword. (http://smex-fish.deviantart.com/art/B-Rabbit-Scythe-Tutorial-176818452?q=boost%3Apopular+scythe+tutorial&qo=22) I would suggest though, instead of using the poster board at the end, use paper mache. It would make it more sturdy and durable, making it less likely to flop around and break.

I think you could use something similar to this to make the shield. (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=145069) Edit the tutorial to include dowels though. Or heck - use the tutorial above wit the paper mache, and add on sculpey, following the steps from the second one! That could work too!
