Skyward Sword Link's Shield~
After the pattern was drawn out, I was able to start building finally. My main concern about making this prop, was having something that wouldn't be banned from conventions. I've heard mixed reviews about wood props, so I didn't want to take the chance.
This shield will be entirely made out of cardboard and foam. Foam will be for the inner parts only, rather than for decorating. I just needed something to fill in the space between the pieces, and it's also a lightweight option.
Once all the pieces were filled with foam, I more or less puzzled them back together. Any seams will be hidden once it's primed & painted. Pattern was completely made from scratch, so it's taking a long time to make.
This is only the back, I'll be working on the front this coming week. Only things left for the back, are the bolts, handle and strap that'll be added at the end~
