One other shot here of my Hylian Shield and Master Sword, taken at Anime Central 2006 by Robert of Consplayers Photography.

The shield's steel was stamped and shipped from a tank production facility in Texas but paneled, painted, and built in Michigan. Simply finding the right supplies was tricky and so it took roughly three and a half years to be fully completed.

Structural designing and patterning, along with bolting, cleaning, and some interior edging work / sanding, done by me. The rest was crafted by numerous individuals over three years.

Edges are 11ga (1/8") plate x2 with soft cedar paneling and automotive bolt connections. Weight is approximately 35lbs.

Master Sword was hand-crafted by a local blacksmith although designs were produced by me. Diamond is solid brass made by Dragon Cutlery. Triforce emblem was entirely designed by me and laser engraved.

The sword still awaits a lot of finalized construction as of early 2010.

are you going to stain the hilt blue?

Yeah. I'm scrapping the base though and rebuilding it. This was just what could be managed at the time it was done - it's not quite accurate really. Once the rebuild is completed, it'll be painted to match the shield.

Wow, that is really amazing. High quality and all real. This is really great, I know I'd be stoked just to have this let alone cosplay with it.
