Goddess Harp - Skyward Sword -Zelda- by NintendoFanGirl Goddess Harp - Skyward Sword -Zelda- by NintendoFanGirl
I'm working on this still, gotta do some super minor touch-ups and add the strings and seal everything up - but I'm really pleased with how it looks overall. In the photo it looks a little less yellow-gold than it is in person, and there are a few 'rough' areas that don't really show. Overall though, yay, so glad it's almost done. I've never had to put this much work into a prop before, but I couldn't imagine my SS Zelda cosplay without the harp (I'm making the white dress and will be traveling around with Impa.. so it makes the most sense for me to have it).

Anyway! If people are interested I can put together a tutorial together for this, since I took plenty of pictures. It's made with tinfoil, sculpey, and a wooden dowel. Not usually recommended for bigger props like this, but I knew I was comfortable with sculpey so I stuck with it.

Feel free to leave constructive critiques! There's not much that I can do about this one, but if I decide to make more for selling or something later, I could advice. This one has taken WELL over 20~ hours already.

I made my harp out of foam but I made it literally the week of the convention, so it didn't turn out so good. But I'm planning on remaking it for an anime convention I'm going to with my siblings. We're doing a whole Skyward Sword group

As a Zelda fan and collector I have to say I'm not too fond of home-made items. But after what I have seen here, I may have to change my mind about ALL homemade stuff looking bad. I am certainly interested in making one myself... a tutorial would be an extremely smart decision, or better yet, start selling them. That could make 30 -40 USD quite easily.

If I ever sold them it would have to be for much more than 30-40 USD. :P It costs almost that much in materials and takes somewhere around 20 hours to make. There's probably a much smarter/better/faster/cheaper way to make them, but I don't know it, haha. :P I do plan on throwing the tutorial together eventually though, I just need to find all the original photos I took.

well if you do post a tutorial, I may be able to find a "much smarter/better/faster/cheaper" way, if you don't mind it. It may just be the materials.

This is so good! May I ask you what sculpey is haha?
EruwaedhielElleth Featured By Owner May 25, 2013
Sculpey is a brand of polymer clay.
