Awesome project! Hey, I'm thinking of making this out of plywood instead of cardboard. Any recommendations as to what I should use for the reflective material?

theres a list of things, you can use the stuff I used, an actual mirror, or Mylar, or my original idea silver paint with car wax :P

did you get the idea to make this from playing Orcarina of time or the useless remake? sorry just wanna know if there still some old schoolers out there or little kids thinking their cool with their 3DS's

I'm in grade 7, and I highly prefer the N64 ocarina of time, and other than the crappy graphics, it is an AMAZING game. :)

no kidding

doomsdayltd (author)mmhiggins2011-12-05

lol, well those graphics were great back in the day so don't be dissing them

mmhiggins (author)doomsdayltd2011-12-07

very true, but I'm saying it from a comparison to the 3DS graphics.

OrangeSpy121 (author)doomsdayltd2011-12-04

Im old school for sure, That's why its the original artwork on the shield

doomsdayltd (author)OrangeSpy1212011-12-04

knew you would say that, bet a bunch of kids are like "why does it have a moon on it?", you should do some case paint mods for old nintendo consoles and show some people whats up!

Mylar would be perfect to make the mirror part with it's a highly reflective film that you can buy with a peel and stick side.
