Hylian Shield



Costume Information

Cost : £30-40 ish
Time Taken : A few days to actually craft, but several weeks to collect every thing. The sheild took the longest

My first actual cosplay =] Pretty proud, to be honest. Sorry there aren't any fuller photos of the actual costume.
Not a great deal of the costume itself was made, just pieced together, apart from the tunic and hat. These were made from two huge t-shirts from BHS hacked up a little then sown back together the night and day before recon, I've a habit of leaving things until the last minute. If I ever use this again, I shall try fashioning some ears.

The shield was the one of the most awkward, faffy, irritating and fun things I've done (beaten marginally by my GCSE art coursework). Made fully from card, fun foam and one hell of a lot of super glue. Should also be noted that this was made fully for fashion and NOT function, as a nice Yoh Asakura proved when he attacked me and broke the handle. Fortunately I'd had the foresight to bring some extra glue.

So yeah. I might get some better pictures up here. If I get around to it.
