This looks great ^^
Do you mind me asking what you used to stuff the hat? I'd like to do the same with mine but I don't know what to use that wont weigh it down too much.

Thanks,
Well I used the left over cut outs of the material from the hat and just used that. It stays on pretty well since it's made of light cotton :3

Dammit, I have none :L ah I'll find something anyway, thanks ^^

you could always use an old bed sheet if you have no material, so if you have that, it should stuff well and hold up XD (It's what I used to make my hat anyway :3 ) Oh and no problem XD

Journal

Oh god :C (Posted 13th February 2012)

ahhhh!!! Lost weight and now the tunic doesn't actually fit me anymore :C Sad times. It just drops off of my shoulders whenever I wear it...

Here we go again...

WIG (Posted 4th September 2011)

T-T Only have a temporary one which may have to be used due to the lack of moneys D: Oh well...

belt (Posted 20th July 2011)

I finished my belts today :D....Well the top belts anyway :3 they are made of thin pleather and actually acquired no sewing since the glue gun was a much easier approach ^^

armour completed :) (Posted 19th July 2011)

I decided to cover my original Armour in a brown pleather material since this gave it a nice defined look and looks quite realistic :D (still has messy glue gun bits on :( but I will peel them off so it look tidy ^_^)

Sheath (Posted 27th June 2011)

I made this sheath out of poster board. I used poster board because it's strong, easy to cut, yet not very flexible. I still have to actually either paint or make the decorative patterns on the shield in a golden colour. :)

Hat :D (Posted 13th June 2011)

hat completed and stuffed for a fuller look

Master sword (Posted 13th June 2011)

I have nearly finished the skeleton of my master sword :D Yush!

The hat begins :D (Posted 12th June 2011)

I drew out a pattern for my hat on baking paper :D It's looking good at the moment. ^-^ Might die the fabric a darker green though.

chain mail (Posted 11th June 2011)

actual image of material :)

chain mail (Posted 10th June 2011)

I found this really light weight alternative for chain mail :) I think it looks really effective. I will be doubling up the material though to make it less see through ^-^

Armour (Posted 9th June 2011)

Made the left arm armour. I used green craft foam which I will paint when I go out and buy a copper brown colour :)

base done (Posted 8th June 2011)

I've done this fast for my own reasons. I have no time whatsoever to complete this because of revision for exams.
I still have to add shading and weathering so it's not close to being finished :3

Details (Posted 8th June 2011)

I added the details onto the shield using red foam :) It came out pretty good I think :D I also added the rivets by cutting out round parts of foam and spraying them silver :3

Sheild (Posted 8th June 2011)

I cut out a large piece of grey foam into the shape of the hylian shield, I then sprayed it metallic blue. For the outside part, I used poster board and drew around my shield, then cut it out, sprayed it grey and stuck it on with PVA :)

Master sword (Posted 7th June 2011)

I Drew out the template for my master sword blade. Hopefully it will look great once it's finished :)
