Heh, yeah you and me both ^_^ I'm actually eventually planning on making a few more sheilds out of the stuff. I want to make the TP Hylian Shield and one other one too.

ooo neat. I want to make my own chainmail but I have a high quality really really pretty one picked out for cheaper than average. It's perfect, but it is the average 35 lbs. or something like that, so not good to run around in but for badass effect it's awesome! lol

Oye! Anybody happen upon a good replica Hylian Shield? I'm working on Link's Twilight Princess costume, like so many of you guys are. Can't find any good ones and don't have the time/know-how to make one. Got a lot of work to do before Anime-LA.

Any help is awesome.

Pikminlink takes commissions but I don't know how booked she is right now.
Otherwise Aaron Granofsky of www.fiberglassblades.com is selling one for $375 and one for $325. They're expensive but they're awesome.

Oh yeah I forgot that about PL. I just saw Hylian Shield and didn't think about how he wanted a TP Link either, oops. Basically my last post was a total failure. >_< lol.

Aaron doesn't often take commissions since he's finishing up school, but you could ask him if he has the time and he'll probably tell you a quote.

I don't think I am that good at making props either but I continue to do it and learn from my god-awful mistakes...and there are MANY of those. XD;
My Zidane Butterfly Sword prop was the first prop I ever made and believe me... there was ALOT of trial and error in the process of it. But once I got it it was awesome <3 I honestly think that making props yourself gives you a greater feeling of achievement. Even if it doesn't turn out the best the first time :] I mean... when you work hard on a costume and you FINALLY finish it and look at the finished product...doesnt it make you feel awwweesome? It's the same with props x]
But... that might just be me. :x

Now all the people who do commissions are gunna get mad at me for trying to encouraging everyone to try it themselves XDD;;

I agree, your own props are what can make your costume unique it's like all your own well thought ideas and hard work that put it all together to make some foam and cardboard/wood etc into a sword.
I am kind of happy with how my TP Props are coming along but next time I could do better because it's a learning experience I think as is all parts of cosplay not just props.

I agree completely. When you get something made it may look awesome but there isn't that sentimental value you have towards it. When you make it,however, it sometimes becomes your favorite part of the outfit. Also sometimes you can tell that a prop wasn't made from that person. If you make it yourself, it has your talents and abilities in it. it just goes better with the whole thing.

But of course if you don't have the talent, it's perfectly fine to commission a piece. I bear no ill feelings to those that do^_^

Little update...
Costume: The fake-mail is almost done! It's not really mail at all actually.... but it will do wonders in stage combat. ;-D Plus it's the right color!
The arm wraps have been re-done. They are accurate now (color/ material).
I've got a new pic of those in my gallery, and for once in a picture... i smiled!! XD
But, since i've been playing TP, I figured since Link has been smiling more in this game.... it'd be good to start smiling more for pictures

Sword: I'm doing it in wood for the time being. I have the shape ready to cut out whenever it turns light outside o_o.
Shield: Foam is all cut out to size, the layers need to be glued together, etc. etc. I also have masks, gloves, goggles, fiberglass cloth, resin, and hardener ready to go at a moments notice!! I hope I don't screw any of these up.

Of course, on the lines of what was said above...
... every mistake is a learning opportunity (still, i hope i don't make any!)

Sounds good Tsuyosa. What is this 'fake mail' you speak of? Over the holidays, I'll be making my first foam board shield!! I'll use the tutorials on here, so hopefully everything will work out smoothly. Personally I admire everybody's ability to work with craft foam, foam board etc..hopefully I will be able to measure up to all of your skills ^_^ I don't think comissions are for me though. I'm often quite busy.
