Was bored and glanced at some cardboard packaging. One afternoon later, I have a painted cardboard replica of Link’s Hylian Shield. Goes to show, reuse is better than recycling, and how cool things can be made with minimal materials. Its not brilliant, but it was just a bit of fun.
(And now obviously you'll ask me why I did this instead of writing. I never said I was not doing both at the same time...)
WARNING: This shield is made of cardboard and completely unsuitable for battle. It will break almost instantly if hit with a wood, plastic, or metal sword. If you wish to roleplay, please use only plastic or foam weapons to guarantee you and your opponent's safety.
