Well, he's been about six months in the making (on and off, of course, and allowing for the time my sewing machine was broken) but he's finally finished. He was a commission from a friend.
Link, he come to town, come to save the Princess Zelda . . .
He's very stern.
From the back you can see his sword sheath and shield hung on his back as well as the pouches on the back of his belt. The pouches have snap buttons to close them and both of the belts have snap buttons hidden on them as well so they are fully removable, as is his tunic, leggings, gauntlets, arm . . . lings, and boots.

He has pipe cleaners in his fingers so he can hold on to both his sword and shield.

Holding onto the sword. His fingers are so cute! The sword is made of foam with a popsicle stick core. The yellow is painted on there and the triangle symbol is carved into the foam itself on both sides.
The shield is made of foamcore board and painted with acrylics, then finished with woodfinish to make it shiny.
He also has an ocarina.
It's made of sculpey. The yellow tri-force is painted on and it's coated in woodfinish as well.
I was really please with the way he came out and he was a little bit hard to give up, but my friend really likes him, so that made me happy. Still, there is an empty place on my shelf now
Haha, but he was really fun to make. I love all the little details the character has and I had fun plushifying them. I used ghilie's poppet pattern as a starting point, but resized and altered most of the pieces to make him look more masculine and whatnot. Anyway, hope you like and thanks for looking!
