Hello, I have been making some Zelda-y things for a couple years now and realized that I don't think I have ever posted them here at all. Even though I have had them on my Deviantart page for a while. Anyway, here are a few of the Zelda props I have been bored enough to create. I try to keep them in what I assume to be life size if they were ever real.
I have wanted to make this for a whole and finally got around to it last year. Carved from several pieces of wood and has 51 gems on it.
This is my leather Rupee Wallet with a small wood and brass rupee symbol on the front
Kokiri Sword with a metal blade and wood hilt and handle
Aluminum White Sword
And wooden Wood Sword
and a bottled fairy
There are a few more random things but they are usually a bit less impressive. I tend to collect things that remind me of various Zelda things too.
Thanks, the boomerang and the magical sword definitely took the longest to produce. In fact I think that sword is the most difficult thing I have ever carved before. But I remembered I have loved the look of that sword for years and I don't think I have ever seen any replicas out there before. The two LoZ swords were pretty simple based on their shape. Cutting aluminum is a tedious process but there were no difficult shapes whatsoever.
I do have some more things but like I said earlier they are a bit less impressive by comparison. I'll get some other pics up.
Words can't describe how awesome your crafts are, Jin. The craftsmanship on the AoL sword is just so great and gets all the details right. Same with the Gale boomerang and the aluminum white sword-- they're just very well crafted and so great to look at.
I'd be very interested in seeing other crafts you've been working on as well as some of the Zelda-like objects you collect. Keep updating this awesome thread.
Thanks guys, always glad to hear my work has been appreciated.
I mentioned that I had a few other things as well that I might post here, well here are a few.
first a Book Of Mudora replica, this was not as much my creation as it is a large bood shaped box that I continued to decorate and painted the Hylian words on the cover using our own Sarnilli's translations
This was a Wind Waker I made a while ago from a single piece of wood.
These spiritual stones I made using the same clear resin and color dye as the rupees. The gold parts are made from polyclay.
This was just my playing around with different color resins at the same time.
And I have been playing around with possibly making a clawshot for a while now but never really placed a lot of effort into it. One day I might finish it.
I don't know, I really liked the novelty of a lot of them and most are not easily recreatable. I did experiment a little bit with mold casting the spiritual stones a while back but did not perfect that one.
I needed some way to make a slightly more durable foil back for them.
