Lord of the Rings Eowyn Shield Made from Cardboard and Styrofoam
I don’t know about you, but when I have leftover cardboard, I usually throw it away. This is a terrible decision given that I like to make stuff. I don’t want to encourage hoarding, but spare cardboard comes in handy. I often put it down when I’m crafting to protect surfaces from hot glue and paint, but Arkady Cosplay had bigger dreams. She turned a cardboard, styrofoam, and some googly eyes into a replica of Eowyn’s shield from Lord of the Rings. She even used paint to simulate wood texture.
