I know it's been done a million times over, but I want to cosplay Malon (from Ocarina of Time) this coming May. My issue? I can not find a rectangular triforce belt buckle to save my life! My question is - Is there anyone that makes custom belt buckles that you would recommend, or, to anyone who has cosplayed Malon before, where did you get your buckle??
Please help! D:

Checked it out..
First thought: Buy something like this -- Black Buckle (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120556040944&rvr_id=127359528181&crlp=1_263602_263622&UA=WXF%3F&GUID=7a5030f01220a075f9b65c86fff84713&itemid=120556040944&ff4=263602_263622)
and use this: Yellow Enamel Paint (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/zoomImagedetail.jsp;jsessionid=66120B2E4604CB743FC 7B13876A3CE99.a4p1?PRODID=6704696&imageType=m&itemType=sku)
to paint the triforce, and you'd have a lovely belt buckle for fairly cheap.

Hmm... I didn't think about that. I've been so worried about styling my wig and making sure the ears I'm getting are right that I must have spaced out. I assume there is silver paint that would work just as well? Her belt looks like it's all silver. >_<

Yeah, making it yourself is probably your best bet.
There are a fair number of tutorials out there for crafting accessories. Try giving them a peruse and see if anything gets your creative juices flowing.

Sure! The ones I found came from Jo-Ann fabric but I bet any craft store would have it. Here's the enamel paint in silver. (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/zoomImagedetail.jsp?PRODID=6705271&imageType=m&itemType=sku)

Haha, just one more thing for me to do with the costume! Thanks tons, guys. I'll probably be around, looking for more help with other things.. I may run to michaels today with my boyfriend and get the stuff to make myself a Link plush. ;)
I can picture Malon toting one around, rofl.
