Seems Volga is uncontested in the poll I posted, so he's now on my roster for Saturday at Anime North. Since I'm going solo, I'd love to meet up with anyone else cosplaying from the series! I'll probably drop by the Zelda Photoshoot too. If you plan on attending, come say hello if you see me, I'm socially awkward, but I love meeting new people. :)

I've already started progress on the helmet the past few days, and decided its best to keep all my daily progress, mistakes, and random notes on my FB page (trial & error can get hefty sometimes). I'll tidy up, and post milestone images and explanations here on DA for those that don't want my random thought pattern during construction of costumes and props I make.

Auron from FFX will be my next costume I'll be working on, and will be worn on Sunday. Hanzo last but not least, and probably for Friday if I can manage to finish him on time. 2015 is going be to awesome-- :D

Facebook (I'm under a old nickname, since HK seems to be a popular alias... hmm)

Hey there! You might remember we talked about making the Hyrule shield from wood. It's been finished for a few months now and I'd like to show you the results :3 So tadaaah~… There are more pictures on the rest of my tumblr c:

I do remember! It turned out really great! I love the colour too, and even the backing looks spot on! Really impressive work, thanks so much for sharing with me~ :D

How did you enjoy making it? Is the weight decent? I haven't had much luck on the wood props, but busy life is busy, I guess.

Thank you very much as well! :D Glad you like it!

It was really fun but really difficult to make. As you might have seen, it's bent wood. At first, I wanted to stay true to the original design and bent it two ways (backside flat, upside bent in two ways, like a sphere). But the radius was too high and the wood would break, so I settled for bent in one way. Also, it was quite hard to think of how to attach the handle. I couldn't screw it, as I would have to screw through the nut veneer and ruin the upper layer, so I had to screw the handle on a loose piece of wood and screw that on the back side. But after all the hard work, I'm quite proud of it! It's about 4 kilograms, so your muscles hurt quite a bit after wearing it for a full day and my knuckle gets damaged every time, so I still have to sand a dent in the back side.

I can imagine. Wood can be quite difficult to work with, especially if you don't have the right tools. I'm lucky with that, 'cause I'm studying to be a cabinet maker/harp builder. I work with wood daily and have a school with a huge availability to many great machines <3

I did notice it was bent one way (I understand the logistics on how much work is needed to get it domed shape), but it still looks really good! I didn't know the handle caused so much trouble though, good thing to keep in mind. I guess the right kind of bolts too, helps to not break the surface, or ruin the hard work already done. Hopefully you were able to rest it down throughout the day, to give your arm a break. I thought about harnesses needed to support something like that for wearing on your back, but you'd need good quality belts, otherwise it couldn't take the weight. Eesh...

Well your wood working skills do show in that prop, I think you'll have a lot of fun in that career choice. :)

I'm not dead, I have just been away from DA ^^;
I had almost no internet this summer so I kinda stayed away from the computer and I havn't drawn anything.. (or answered any posts at all..:XD:) Hopefully I'll start to be normal and do all these normal stuff hehe
I hope everything is good for you :)

I'm glad to hear back from you, and that everything is fine. :) I hope even without internet, you enjoyed your Summer while it lasted! (I've also been neglectful of my DA, working on cosplays, so less drawing has occurred here too...)

The summer was good :) relaxing
but autumn brought a nasty cold.. been lying in bed for days XD

I hope this autumn/winter will bring some inspiration, feels like I have had zero for months
Inspiration and energy, I have no idea where my energy fled? I really miss it

How are things at your end? I really hope it's better for you, not that it's terrible for me but still..

I hope you have a blanket, or something to keep you warm then. :) Feel better soon!

I've felt unmotivated myself throughout Summer, but it's probably due to being overworked, and stressed. I've had a good amount of creative ideas though lately, which I'm hoping to start this October. I'm also hoping to do more on festivals, and take days off. I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a day off, so maybe it'll help. Maybe look back at your days, see why you feel like you have no energy, you might be running around doing a lot of things too?

I might be on par with you, my Summer wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. Just busy. I finally caught up on all the episodes of turtles a couple days ago, the finale ended pretty solemn. I'm looking forward to the new season. :)
