Hylian Shield – Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda is an amazing game series with countless fans all over the world. One of my favorites pieces from the game was the iconic Hylian Shield. And it’s not just a perfect prop for a Link cosplay, but also a super fun project to craft. I also wanted to create a simple tutorial on how to get started with EVA foam and this project seamed to be perfect. In addition, I never made a shield and finally wanted to try it. 

Building Link’s Hylian shield from “The Legend of Zelda” was a super fun I could finish it within only two days. The shield was completely made out of EVA foam. Afterwards I’ve primed it with several layers of Plastidip and painted it with airbrush colors and acrylics. If you want to build this prop for yourself, you can download the Hylian Shield blueprint in my shop! This project is really beginner friendly and doesn’t require a lot of tools and materials. I also made a full Youtube video on my channel you can follow along. 

And even though I never made a Link Cosplay myself, now I really consider creating more from the Legend of Zelda. You might also enjoy my Master Sword or Majora’s Mask if you liked this build as well. I will surely create more from the game in the near future!
