Old vs New: Zelda Light Bow by GothLoliChanKaru
Old vs New: Zelda Light Bow
Time for another Old vs New!

2012: first time making a giant prop. Used a PVC pipe with illustration board and plaster strips. Silver detailing is with craft foam. Didn't put in weathering for this. It was a tad heavy to lug around though.

2015: remade it with Pink insulation foam and a PVC pipe (later). Coated it with thin paper mache for some durability at least. X_x Decided to do give this one a worn look so some parts arent smooth and added some weathering to it. ALOT lighter than the old one.

Tutorial: How I Made My Zelda Pauldrons by GothLoliChanKaru
Tutorial: How I Made My Zelda Pauldrons
This is for those who could not afford Worbla.

1-Trace and cut the pattern onto the EVA/Craft Foam. You could find many patterns online that has Zelda's Pauldrons. (I will post mine soon in the future but its the WiiU version though.)

2- Attach the parts together. To curve it, use a heat gun to make the foam bit soft to mold on your shoulder/arm. Stabilize it a little with some plaster strips on the inside. Sculpt the raised details with Model Magic, it helps if you wet your fingers to smooth out seams. Adhere it on to the foam with glue or wet the underside til its sticky enough. Let your Model Magic dry completely before putting some sealant (like Modge Podge, Elmers Glue, gesso) to seal the foam.

When working with Model Magic with resin: (I repeat) Remember to let the Model Magic dry COMPLETELY or else when you resin coat it, the model magic would warp and shrink with the resin which will make it wrinkly...

3- Painting! Either brush it on or spray paint would do as long as its gold.

4- Age the armor with a mixture of black and gold paint (or black with very dark green) to give it the worn out look. Paint some of the edges that you want to age and quickly use a wet cloth to wipe off the excess. Finally top it off with some resin coating and  gems.

....That wasn't so bad was it?

Screw Valentine's Day, Majora's Mask day is so much better!
Hey everyone,

Sorry for not updating much on my journals. It's one of those days where I wish I had some sort of Time-Turner or a Portal Gun so I can just move anywhere. Not only am I having depression and insomnia relapses since October, the paid internship I was in suddenly ended and as of now I am jobless. It really irritates me on how much the applications I sent out are either rejected or received no response what so ever. So yeah.. I am not in the best mindset as of now and lost weight due to the emotional stress since October. It's these type of situations that really hinder my creativity and also cosplay.

I am not gone from cosplay yet since I still have a line up for next year's Wondercon, Anime Expo, Anime California and Akihabara Con: TP Zelda remake, Hyrule Warriors Zelda, possibly Twilight Sparkle or Fluttershy.

So yeah, that's my update as of now. Hope you all have a good day.
