Zelda armor tutorial part 2
Zelda cosplay armor tutorial part 2
make your main base out of the thick foam. The sholder part consists of two seperate peices the bottom and the top. Sketch out your design lightly with pencil on the thick foam pick either the top or bottom to start. I used multible zelda OOT cosplays for a reference on what shape I should make it. Use these basic measurmentsto sketch around: width of shoulder, length of sholder. once you have your sketch, cut it out. test it on your sholder. If its good CONGRATULATIONS! if its bad and you messed up sketch out something new and fix your mistakes. Once you have finished both top and bottom take both of the peices and outline them on another peice of thick foam. So now you have two of each top and bottom.

Outline both top and bottom twice on thin foam. cut it out. sketch on your design onto the thin pieces of the top and bottom (I'd sugest you practice on paper first) I impr
zelda armor tutorial part 4RINGS:
Ok honestly I've put this part off way to long because its just so hard to explain XD Sorry if its a bit confusing. First cut a rectangle out of the thin foam. Then cut the rectangle into 4 strips. On each strip make one of the sides pointed, leave the other side flat. Take a ring and wrap the flat side of the strip around the ring. Run a peice of wire through the foam strip to keep it tied on the ring. I will have links to pictures in the description to better show what I mean by doing this. Put 4 strips of foam for every one ring. This equals up to 16 strips of foam. I will put a link to a picture of the back of the armor so you can see how to connect the rings to the triforce panel. I will also put another link to a picture on how I connected the ring to the armor itself.
Go ahead spray paint what you have left gold.
CONGRATS YOU ARE FINISHED!!
I hope this tutorial helped!
If you are confused on something, let me know! I don't bite
Zelda armor tutorial part 3
Measure: arm pit to arm pit...yes I know it sounds weird XD then subtract a inch
This measurement is how long your front panel should be without the rings
The squares are 1.5 by 1.5 inches
The length of the triforce panel is 4.5 inches and its sides are about 1 inch
Just make the shape I have made by using your own measurements. Then do the detailing the same way you made the detailing on the sholder part.
Quite simple to do. Use the measurements I have given you. Make them out of the thick foam
HOT GLUE TIME!
Make little strips of thin foam to connect your squares to the triforce piece. And also hot glue it together for extra support.
Make sure to make two of these panels, one for the back one for the front. I will talk about the rings in the next part!
Ask me questions if you are confused with something!
Twilight Princess Zelda Costume FAQHere are a list of questions I receive most frequently about my costume. If you want to ask me a question about the methods I used to make my costume, please read through this list before asking.
1. Where did you buy your costume?
I made everything myself from scratch aside from the ears.
2. How long did it take for you to make your costume?
It took me roughly one year and four months.
3. How did you make your armor?
I created the base from craft foam, backed it with wire form, sculpted the details from model magic, and sanded them after the model magic was dry. I then coated them with one layer of fiberglass resin, spray painted, and weathered them.
4. How did you make your crown and other accessories?
I made them from model magic, sanded and sealed them with modge podge. Then I painted and weathered them, and coated them with high-gloss epoxy resin.
5. How did you make your gems?
I made my gem positives from model magic, sanded and sealed them, then coated them with a glossy top c

How to make Zelda OOT armor tutorial Part 1
Zelda armor I figured out it isn't all that hard to make! took me around 10-12 hours to make
I'm going to start off with the materials you will need...
~crafting foam, it can vary on how much you'll need (you are going to need thick and skinny foam)
~Foil, again can vary(optional, gives it a more metalic look)
~4 metal rings (not the jewlery, any metal hoop will do. If you make a circle by touching your index finger to your thumb thats how big the hoop should be.)
~Hot glue/ducktap/packaging tape
~metalic gold spraypaint
~gold colored wire
Part 2 will come soon!
Let the Sparrows InI.
Blackbirds rest on the power lines,
their silhouettes form the notation
to a dawn song set on the sheet music
of telephone poles contrasted by the sun.
Curled leaves are land mines littered
on the lawn where imprints of twigs
and a nurturing robin's tracks collect.
Branchlets and leaflets stem from
porch step railings and mailboxes;
the numbers read odd on the east,
even on the west side of the asphalt:
The engraved letters on
the siding reads, "Davis."
This house is home to family
so let the sparrows in.
with its branching hallways
furniture rooted to the floor
family, friends, the occasional
out from home.
Let the sparrows in; let
Let the door's
loosen—let the door stand ajar
be let open
the night owls and
let the doves
in pairs in the iridescent
Let the sparrows in.
