Zelda: Clockwork Empire, Gauntlet of Gamelon


Hey everyone,

Most people who followed dresdencodacs tumblr feed for a bit have probably heard of Aaron Diazs redesign, Zelda: Clockwork Empire, and so did I.
I really liked all of it and one day I sat in front of my computer and thought: “I am going to build this gauntlet!” And well, here we are!

I never did such a thing before, espicially colouring is new to me, but I gave it a go and just tried my best. I used worbla, a material for prob-making, which is a  thermoplast (plastic, craftable if heatend up) , to craft all the plates and the lower arm part and painted several layers on top of it.

The intentional use of it isn’t just to look good, it should be usable. That said, I had to use materials which don’t break as soon as it falls down. I will probably use it for larping (live action role play) afterwards, the triforce will be covered at these sort of events.

All in all, it took me about 120 hours to make (most of them used for colouring), about 30 $ worth material and paint, and an old glove.

I hope some of you enjoyed to see a real-life version of it and be sure to see my next post, where I explaine how it was made, step by step.
