Hylian Shield:Skyward Sword cosplay
This is the Hylian Shield that I made for our Skyward Sword cosplay. I first drew the shape of the shield and made 2 cutouts of it; then I bent one of them slightly down the middle and painted that part blue. I traced around the inside of the other piece (this was the edge of the shield), cut out the inner piece and sprayed the outer piece silver. I then hot-glued these two pieces together. I made the 3D 'S' and 'Z' bits by first cutting out the 'S' and 'Z' shapes; then I cut out 8 different pieces of silver coloured card, bent each one down the middle, then hot-glued them together onto the cutout shape (I did this for each one). Some measurements and calculations (as well as trials and errors with normal paper) were required to produce the correct shapes that fit together. Triforce: I cut out one equilateral triangle first (making sure the triforce arrangement would fit with that side-length), then I used that to make 2 more of the same size and shape. Then, for each triangle, I made 1 smaller triangle, and another even smaller triangle; I stacked the triangles onto each other (biggest on the bottom, smallest on the top) to make the triforce slightly more 3D. Then I taped them up with masking tape, painted them yellow and hot-glued them to the shield. After this, the red eagle emblem was painted on. I sprayed 3 round wooden earrings silver and stabbed them through the frame of the shield. Then I stuck on some more of the silver card to the frame. For the back, I cut out yet another (smaller) shield shape. The handle was done by mountain-folding a piece of cardboard twice, then taping and gluing it to a piece of wire. This wire was threaded through the small shield shape and hot-glued to the back. The entire shield back was then painted silver. I then folded up a brown imitation leather book cover, sewed the two ends together, and put two pieces of wire through it, which I then poked through the small shield shape and hot-glued to the back. Then I glued this to the back of the shield and reinforced it with a few wires.
