Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword

Last Updated: 06-22-2013

I participated in the Zelda Gathering at Fanime 2012, and had so much fun at a larger gathering that I decided to create a SS Link for 2013.

- Tunic and hat started out as a green bedsheet from the thrift store. You can get large rectangles of fabric for dirt cheap. Sewn together using a combination of hand sewing and machine.
- Longsleeve cream colored shirt, thrifted
- Tan scrub pants, also thrifted
- Brown pleather boots, thrifted
- Brown Gloves, thrift store and then fingers were cut off
- Maille is actually rubber drawer liner, spraypainted silver and glued to the inside of the sleeves, inside the collar, and the bottom of the tunic
- Forearm armor comes from Jet, craft foam that has been sealed and painted, with elastic straps
- Baldric (the harness Link wears) is brown pleather of craft foam. Large wooden buttons painted silver for the large rivet. Held on using velcro.
- Wig is from my WW Link last year. Ears as well.

I opted to make the Goddess Longsword and Divine Shield so that my Link would distinctly be from Skyward Sword. I see too many Master Sword/Hylian Shield combinations, and I'm really glad I picked another sword/shield combo to use.

- Sword is a 2 ply balsa blade fitted to a PVC pipe handle. Pommel and cross guard are layered foamboard. Sculpey for the jewel on each side. Whole thing got a layer of glazing putty and plenty of sanding before paint.
- Shield is a base of foamboard curved using water, with layered details made of craft foam. Pleather/foam straps on the back.
