I love this thread! I have been a Zelda fan since I was little, and have just started on my Link costume that I've had on my to-do list for 2 years. I'm making his outfit from the Link to the Past game for the SNES based on the official artwork. Before I ask about the props though, I'll browse through this thread and see what I can find. I've been doing some research to see what materials and methods work the best, particulary for the shield.
Right now I'm working on the boots and wig and will have it done for MegaCon in February. I hope everyone is having fun with their projects and best of luck!
