A Deku Shield! For those that don't get the reference, it's from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Like most things I've made here, it cost nearly nothing.
The body is constructed from illustration board, which I cut into the basic shape, then bent and folded accordingly. After that I spray painted the front red, and carefully drew the deku symbol on it.
Then I took woodchips, and glued them to the top and bottom.
Finally I found a tree in the forest that was pretty much dead, with a bunch of bark hanging off. I grabbed a chunk, cleaned it, then cut it to fit, and glued it on, save for the area I had drawn a symbol.
Finally I added craft foam straps on the back so it can be carried.
