Hylian Shield -Ocarina of Time by BryanRogers Hylian Shield -Ocarina of Time by BryanRogers
My Idealized OoT Shield is Complete!

The base for the shield was begun in 2009, over the past 2 weeks (Spring Break) I have finally made the time to finish it.

The Shield facing:
-A base form was created using cardboard, then three layers of fiberglass were laid on top and trimmed creating a shell.
-Spots, holes, gaps, and low areas were filled with bondo and sanded smooth.
-Raised details were created with .40 & .60 styrene sheets. The hooks were modeled with Epoxy Putty.
-The "Lip" was created by outlining the edges with balsa strips, and were filled with Bondo/Resin "mud".
-Testors Spray enamel blue, Enamel red, and Rustoleum Metallics were used for color.

I may update this picture with a photo of the back as well:

-Constructed with cherry-stained Basswood.
-Measured, and counter-sunk into the back of the "shield shell"
-Edges were walled off, and then filled with "mud", attaching the back permanently to the front.

this is a good shield , i tryed once but, i make a extra flat thing , with cardboard (2 pieces) 6 layers of glue and paper and newspaper (wrist handlers)
and crayons for the colors (its looks like an sick shield than a hylian one ) and is strong as a wall (i accidentaly walk over it and nothing happened)
keep it up , you are great maybe you can do a halo costume

Looks a lot more realistic than the other Hylian Sheilds I've seen. How did you make it round with the fiberglass? By sanding?

Either way it's pretty much awesome. I like that it looks a little more run down and not so spit and polished. Makes it feel that much more realistic.

Hey man, I actually found this from your youtube video when it got posted on Reddit. This is absolutely brilliant! Any chance for you to have an instructable on how you made it? I would love to try and make one....maybe throw in some battle damage :D

Hm, I have never used Instructable...
We'll see. I have enough pictures to produce a tutorial but the write-up would take some time.
School comes first, but I will definitely consider it. Thanks for the suggestion!

This is fabulous. Probably one of the best Hylian shields I've seen. This even looks better than the kind they sell at cons. The effort you put in it really shows.

Thank you! I have been working on it on and off over the past year and a half, but the brunt of the finishing was completed within the last two weeks.
