Easy. Photoshop. ^^ It';s how I do all my Master sword glows. If you mean as an on-site practical effect...LEDs, EL, or something similar, it's how the ForceFX sabers have their glow.

Possible spoiler? Maybe? xD
Highlight to read.

The only Gerudo that I know of in the game is Telma the lady that runs the bar in Hyrule Castle Market. I beat the game and I didn't see any others ;x

Some sort of mesh, like from the Scream masks, maybe?). Any suggestions, or directions to places I could look for help?

Also, anyone have any idea what type/brand of paint and techniques I should use for the markings so that it wont crack or flake off?

Thanks, yet again.

I was thinking about trying to make a Twilit Messenger head...thing as well with the rest of the foam I have from when I made my Midna Helm -> http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=935445
I went to an upholstery place like UFO and got some foam from there. It SAID it was insulation foam. It's white, flexible and comes in a varity of thickness' It's also really easy to work with and pretty cheap as well.
For all the little details I used 3D puffy paint from any old art store and it worked really well.
And for the top color coat at the same upholstery place I got the foam from I got ....SEM Color Coat Flexible Coating. It doesnt crack when the foam is bent ( as least it didnt when I tested it out ) But it MAY flake a bit if like... you pick at it or something. Probably be smart to coat it with a clear coat to keep it form happening ( I didnt do this xD; ) It's about 9 bucks a pop though x_o;

Hope that helped! :]

actually I was talking about making it glow while I'm holding it,I was thinking maybe fiber optics,or making a mold of the sword and casting it in one of the clear casting materials,then hook it up to some kind of minerature high power light source.

which idae sounds better?

Maybe frosted clear plastic with leds or fiberoptic at the base to shine up it.

well my costume progress is going very slow, the last few days of this year have been busy for me. so sorry if i havent been around as much as i would have liked to =\

But other than that, Im trying out some new things, dont know if they all work, but we will see. So far everything i had planned to finish will be finished. some of the props are going very slowly tho, and Ill just get back to those when i finish the things im working on now.


Anyway, after my long absence, and i looked through this thread i just wanna mention lets PLEASE keep this thread on topic. this thread does not need to be bumped just to keep it on the top of the list, it will always be here and wont disappear.
and
do not double post, not only is it against forum rules, but it also makes this thread longer when it doesnt have to be(which is one of the biggest problems from the last thread). there is an edit button on your post, you can add as many replies to your posts with that.

and lets keep chit chat to a minimum too. i just dont want to see this thread end up like the last with thousands of pages and making searching for info very difficult. =\

but anyway. i hope you all have a great holiday! ^^

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!

Now, I'm liking that idea. Perhaps a combination of LED with the frosted clear to really make it look nice.

Good luck on that....

I'm a bit annoyed at myself right now.
I managed to break my right ear mold while filing down imperfections. I'm glad I have another big project that I need to be working on for the next week, so the plaster can dry in the mold again. ~bashes head against counter for a bit~

I finally beat Twilight Princess on New Years morning yay!

Looking back I want to cosplay a Twilight Princess Zora also. Not for ACEN probably but maybe Wizard World or such. Problem is I really have no idea how to even start it at all. I'm thinking I'm going to have to make a full body mold (I don't have a sculpted body, lol) and put a cotton/lycra suit over all of it. I'll look through the first pages for help but anyone have any other suggestions? -InkyLink
