Need to protect yourself in a time of Dragons, Mages, and The Blight? Then our Dragon Age shield is the perfect fit for you. Inspired by the shields in the popular video game series, Dragon Age, and emblazoned with the heraldry of the Amell Family Crest, this is the perfect cosplay accessory or gift to make everyone in Kirkwall jealous. The shield is 17″ tall, 14″ at its widest point, weighs under 3 pounds, and has two straps affixed to the back to allow easy carrying. Whether you are looking to take the shield to a con, traveling Thedas, or just looking for some wall decoration, our shield will work for you.
ADDITIONAL DETAILS AND SPECS
HOW WE MAKE IT:
We make all of our product from a soft ¼” thick pine or birch wood; whatever we can purchase at the best price. We then layer the levels which creates a more solid yet lightweight replica (*although we do not suggest ‘LARPing’ as this may cause the product to chip). The layered levels also provide us the opportunity to paint the different colors that is needed for each replica. We spend time prepping the wood for painting and priming the edges since this is the hardest part in getting the paint to adhere. We use glue and micro nails to bring all of the parts together. Some of our products can take time to prep, like our 17” chakrams. Our labor is dependent upon the layers of wood needed, the details on paint pieces or the hand painting required.
*We are able to add another layer of wood if you feel you need something tougher….just ask for a quote.
We offer shield sizes of 14” (kids sized) 17”, 20” and 23” in most of our shield replicas. The best way to get a rough idea on the sizes is to tape normal sized 8.5” x 11” paper together so it measures 17”. Do this twice and crisscross them so you can visualize a rough idea of the circumference. You can do the same for the 11” side when looking at our largest size (it will only be 1” off). That should give you the idea on what size you prefer.
We do offer the option of painting the back of the shield.
All of our shields come with arm shields. They’re a polypropylene webbing strap that allows you to slide your hand through and it rests upon the arm. We also offer a BACK PACK STRAP option that has much longer straps with adjustable buckles that enables you to carry the shield on your back.
CUSTOMIZATION AND PERSONALIZATION:
One of my favorite Christmas gifts was a box of chocolates from my best friend. You see, she didn’t just purchase any box of chocolates, she knew which ones in their selection were my favorite. My gift was a box of chocolates, that only had my favorite ones inside, PLUS, the box was personalized with my name on it! This is one of the reasons we offer customization on all we do! Choose their favorite and then make it unique with their pseudonym or catch phrase. Two of my favorite customs I’ve done was a rainbow Red Ranger Sword and a Klingon phrase on the Bat’Leth.
Or, if you’re looking for a particular replica that you don’t see in my portfolio, or your own designed keyblade, or even your logo on a shield, then send me a message along with a graphic, approx. size and when you need it and I’ll do my best to quote you a great price!
COUPONS AND SALES:
We have attempted to price our items as affordable as we possibly can whilst still allowing us to pay our bills. Therefore, we don’t generally offer a discounted price. However, we do offer “freebies” at special times throughout the year on our website to show you our appreciation for your loyalty. Just sign up for our newsletter and when you hear of our “freebie” but still wish to purchase on Etsy then just let us know in the notes section when you order. We will honor you as a loyal customer since you would be a part of our newsletter audience.
There is no quick answer on this. We work in batches, especially if we are prepping for our con schedule. Sometimes we could get one out within 24 hours because we will be able to give you one from our stock that we just made. However, If we just left for a con then it could be 4-5 days depending upon the amount of time we are on the road. If you are ordering in a crunch then contact us, and we can give you an estimate on how fast we can get it in the mail. DON’T PAY FOR EXPRESSS SHIPPING without checking with us first because we may be able to save you that additional expense. Or, give us a heads up if you’re ordering late due to money constraints and we will start prepping one for you.
We offer clear coating as an upgraded choice rather than tack on the service to all of our products and expect you to incur an additional cost when not everyone requires or wants it. If you choose to perform this task yourself then we suggest Krylon Crystal Clear Acrylic GLOSS and follow the directions on the can.
Your package is being shipped from South Carolina, USA. To see the shipping cost of the item then simply place it in your cart and select the best shipping option for you. We have selected the ‘calculated shipping’ option so it should calculate automatically for bulk purchases. However, if multiple items are ordered, we sometimes can mail the items all together in a different sized box than the ‘calculated shipping’ option provided. In these cases, we always refund any shipping overages back to you. We hate shipping charges too ?
POST PURCHASE REVIEWS
I hope you will consider leaving us a review once you’ve purchased. We get a lot of photo’s added to the review too and if you would allow us to use your photo in our listing then please state that in the review too. It helps to show someone actually holding our product in their full cosplay attire.
