13th February 2012: Oh god :C 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...
4th September 2011: WIG T-T Only have a temporary one which may have to be used due to the lack of moneys D: Oh well...
20th July 2011: belt 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 ^^
19th July 2011: armour completed :) 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 ^_^)
27th June 2011: Sheath 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. :)
13th June 2011: Hat :D hat completed and stuffed for a fuller look
13th June 2011: Master sword I have nearly finished the skeleton of my master sword :D Yush!
12th June 2011: The hat begins :D 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.
11th June 2011: chain mail actual image of material :)
10th June 2011: chain mail 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 ^-^
9th June 2011: Armour Made the left arm armour. I used green craft foam which I will paint when I go out and buy a copper brown colour :)
9th June 2011: base done 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
8th June 2011: Details 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
8th June 2011: Sheild 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 :)
7th June 2011: Master sword I Drew out the template for my master sword blade. Hopefully it will look great once it's finished :)

I don't even know where to start on mine xD
rokubomb - 9th June 2011
Thanks, yeah I was in that same predicament before I found really think and curvy foam for the base XD Thanks god for scrap stores :P
sjbonnar - 10th June 2011
Oooh what kinda foam is the shield made of?
rokubomb - 10th June 2011
Erm, well I think it is really thick craft foam, but I'm not too sure XD
Captain_Marvelous - 10th June 2011
I am intrigued about this material for the chain mail!
rokubomb - 10th June 2011
I would put up a picture but it's not letting me. I'll try to post one up though ^-^
Captain_Marvelous - 12th June 2011
Where did you get that from please tell me you have a link!
rokubomb - 12th June 2011
Well I bought it from a scrap material store ^^' It's really easy to find if you look in the right places :3 sorry I don't have a link.
LinkyLex - 8th August 2011
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.
rokubomb - 8th August 2011
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
LinkyLex - 9th August 2011
Dammit, I have none :L ah I'll find something anyway, thanks ^^
rokubomb - 9th August 2011
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
