I saw you dark link cosplay a and they are great can you give me some advice for doing one and to get the sword and shield perfect. I'm also thinking of making the shield and maybe the sword out of actual metal cause I can get it from my dad's work and craft it there. Thanks for the advice and I followed you. :)
Advice about the swords and shield:
Red Ordon Sword:
If you look through the photo albums on my cosplay page, you’ll find my progress photos. https://www.facebook.com/YaphiCosplay
If I were redoing it, I’d do it differently. For starters, I would have used a belt sander, since that makes everything faster.
Red Master Sword:
I used my friend’s molds to put this sword together. It was a lot of work for me, but he’s the reason it looks good. (He 3d modeled the original, printed the pieces, and put them together.)
Dark Hylian Shield:
My friend from fiberglassblades.com made that. I just modified the back to make it fit me better. He used a foam core with resin on the outside.
General advice:If you’re using materials like resin, the sanding will take a lot of time, but the more you sand, the better it will look. For metal, I don’t have answers since I haven’t worked with it. If you use resin and foam, make sure the kind of resin you get won’t eat through the kind of foam you get (this is something that can be googled).
