Can anyone help me find this? Please?

I know it's been done a million times over, but I want to cosplay Malon (from Ocarina of Time) this coming May. My issue? I can not find a rectangular triforce belt buckle to save my life! My question is - Is there anyone that makes custom belt buckles that you would recommend, or, to anyone who has cosplayed Malon before, where did you get your buckle??

Please help! D:

Checked it out..

First thought: Buy something like this -- Black Buckle

and use this: Yellow Enamel Paint

to paint the triforce, and you'd have a lovely belt buckle for fairly cheap.

Hmm... I didn't think about that. I've been so worried about styling my wig and making sure the ears I'm getting are right that I must have spaced out. I assume there is silver paint that would work just as well? Her belt looks like it's all silver. >_<

Yeah, making it yourself is probably your best bet.

There are a fair number of tutorials out there for crafting accessories. Try giving them a peruse and see if anything gets your creative juices flowing.

Sure! The ones I found came from Jo-Ann fabric but I bet any craft store would have it. Here's the enamel paint in silver.

Haha, just one more thing for me to do with the costume! Thanks tons, guys. I'll probably be around, looking for more help with other things.. I may run to michaels today with my boyfriend and get the stuff to make myself a Link plush.

I can picture Malon toting one around, rofl.
