A friend of mine is a huge Zelda fan and knows I love new and interesting craft projects. So he asked me to make him his very own set of Zelda armor which may or may not be incorperated into his Halloween costume as well as into his daily life as much as possible. The whole process took maybe twenty to twenty five hours of work and the supplies (many of which I already had) cost about $20. Not too shabby, if I do say so myself... I'm really happy with the results, and he is exstatic (to say the least). So, without further ado: Zelda's Magic Armor!!!


(The grey vest/tunic thing that he's wearing under the armor he made for his costume.)





The whole thing was made with craft foam, gold spray paint, jewels, and closes in the back with a gold chain so that it can be more fitted to the wearer. I use this tuttorial http://www.entropyhouse.com/penwiper/costumes/helmsdeep.html. Which was amazing, althouhg I did skip a few steps. Any Zelda fans out there, let me know how I did!!

Looks fabulous! The designs look really good. The timing of this makes me smile, because I'm almost finished with my own Zelda cosplay Smiley Smiley

Oh wow! The armor looks really impressive! Great job
By "incorporating it into his daily life" do you mean your friend plans on wearing this just on a normal day? Cause that makes him super cool in my book. :-)

Haha, I wouldn't put it past him, but so far he's worn it to a movie night and to our schools choir retreat (people dress in all sorts of crazy outfits)...haha
