Posted by andrewj.rager

So I want to get a Master Sword and Hylian Shield from the Legend of Zelda Series. This will be for my game room to hopefully hang on the wall. I've done some initial searches but there is a lot of stuff that comes up.

So basically my question is for Cosplayers and Collectors. Were do you get your props or collectables that are like this?

I'm going back and forth on if i want metal, foam, 3D printing based on price, so I'll take all suggestions.

Thanks,

I’m sorry to say but you clearly didn’t read my post. I’m asking about stuff for my game room  not for Gen Con. The Gen Con policy doesn’t apply to this post. If anyone can actually respond to my question I would greatly appreciate it.

I know a blacksmith and he's making all of my and my friend's armor/weapons for cosplay or something to hang on a wall.
They are in high demand in this business, but their service is quite expensive.
Look them up in your town(or the nearest to your town), there are at least one almost at every city.

Hmm that is an interesting suggestion. But it does sounds expensive as you say, but I will for sure look and get a price point. Thank you,
