Dressing Up

For my daughter's 9th birthday party, we're throwing a video game themed shin-dig where everyone dresses up as a video game character. Mazzy has decided on being Link from the Zelda series. We've got the costume ordered, as well as a sword. The only thing missing is a shield, and I thought I could make it.

Progress Shot 1
It's made out of two sheets of pink foam insulation. I always use this stuff whenever I'm working on props for plays and recitals. It definitely comes in handy!

Progress Shot 2
It was the perfect material to use to make the shield look like it was carved from wood.

Progress Shot 3
The  front is almost done! I just need to add a little silver, and paint the triangle gold. I finished the back, but you can't see it in the photo.

I can't wait to show off the finished piece, along with the entire outfit! The birthday party is next Sunday and I hope we'll be ready! 


  1. She will love that, I am sure : )

  2. Love Zelda. It looks great so far1

  3. What a cool kid! It looks great, I'm sure she'll really dig it.

  4. Woow that shield looks awesome!!!
