This Halloween, I wanted to do a Star Wars theme. My 4-year-old shot it down; *she* just wants to be a princess. Any princess but Leia.

Princess Zelda, however, was suitably glamorous in the munchkin's eyes.

My two sisters agreed to help with Halloween if they could both be Link, AND if I would provide the costumes.

So, to fit my budget, I came up with this.

Step 1: Selecting the Base

First step was to trawl the discount costumes for suitable props. This little $4 set from Walmart jumped out at me, as it was closest to the shape I needed. But that crappy dragon decal had to go.
<p>DUDE! So easy! Now I can easily make the hylian shield without wood! Thanks!</p>
