Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Link

Since this was a detail-heavy version of Link, I tried to make it as lush as possible, using textured suede for the tunic and the hat, and sewing the raised edging of the tunic on myself. I made the gloves out of different shades of vinyl (appliqueing the raised design by hand.) I made the sword and scabbard out of craft foam and styrene (and I gave the sword a wooden core and handle made from PVC pipe.) The handle of the sword was something akin to making a sculpture. (I built the flanges of the hilt around wires and connected them to the PVC pipe.)
