LoZ:OoT Sheik Cosplay
So I am debuting my LoZ:OoT Sheik cosplay at a convention this weekend and I was asked to be in a DeathMatch in which two characters are brought on stage and the crowd picks who wins by cheering. The winning character then fights and kills the losing character. So needless to say I needed some weapons to fight with and since OoT Sheik has none I sort of used my creative mind and came up with some.
I took a foamy pirate sword and cut it down to be a bit smaller and the blade is curved (like think of short middle easternish ninja sword) painted the handle gold, added the Sheikah symbol, and added fake red gems. I also made some needles out of pipe cleaners, and a back mounting pouch for the sword and some of the needles, other needles are tucked into the arm bandages.
I know these aren't canon weapons, but do you think that it was a good idea? *Just to clearify it wasn't until after I made these that someone told me Sheik in Super Smach Brothers has a small back mounted sword, but looking at the pictures it doens't match what I have at all. -_-*
