Cosplayer: Sapphistar

Variant: Hero

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

30th March 2012: Almost there ! Finally after hardening the shield which took around 4 days of layers and layers of glue, i finally managed to paint and spray paint the colours on :) its not complete but well on its way to being finished :)

25th March 2012: And the Shield making begins!! FINALLY!! i have started work on the shield!!!!!:)

I was originally going to have it commissioned but ended up thinking , what the hell i might as well give it a go myself and i must say that im pretty pleased with the way it has turned out so far.

Time for phase 2: Hardening , painting and sticking!!! :)

8th March 2012: Link outfit well on its way :) Finally!! its starting to take some shape!

Today i neatened up the belts and added the shoulder pad, just time to make the bag that attaches to the belt.

I also adjusted the white under top, was a plain roll neck top that im going to work upon , still needs a lot of work but you get the general idea :)

Next up are the gloves and to decide weather or not to make the boots myself :S

6th March 2012: Belt thingys!! Right... so most of the belt thingys got made today, too much hand sewing involves ><, my sewing machine apparently hate leatherette, time for some leather needles!!

Just need to add the shoulder pad and a couple of gold studs for detail before attacing the scarab for the sword :)

5th March 2012: Yay! Link is finally well underway :)(Apart from my lack of ironing that is ...ha :s) so far complete:

Tunic
Trousers
Belt
Sword Belts (in progress)

Apart from the under shirt, boots, gloves and props its not too far from being complete :)

Need to stop lazing about though!! Need to get a move one got another 4 costumes to make! :S

thanks so much :)

its made from a very firm type of foam.

Just needed the most lightweight material i could think of and the foam has worked great for stability and weight so far :)
