I have been doing costumes pretty intensely since 2005, and have been dressing as Link from The Legend of Zelda for about that long. I recently decided to start producing SCA battle ready shields using wood and leather. I am very proud of the end result.

The shield is double layer 1\/4 inch ply wood, glued together to achieve the curvature of the shield. It is 24 inches tall, 18 inches wide at the widest point. It has garment leather on the backside (with two straps for actual use) and a small ring for hanging on a wall. The front and edge of the shield are 10 oz Veg Tan leather, completely hand-tooled to form the classic image seen in the video game. After tooling, I dyed the entire shield black, and then I hand-painted the shield. It is mounted to the wooden core using contact cement and upholstery tacks.

I have done a few versions of this shield for people. I did the classic blue Twilight Princess design, a classic Ocarina of Time blue shield, and finally, I did an alternate universe style shield in silver. This was for a costume that I deemed Royal Garb Link, which was designed off of an awesome concept that I saw of the Fierce Deity Link from Majora's Mask. Here is some photos of the entire costume, http://aradanicostumes.com/news/costumearticles/uber-link/.
