01Lagiacrus901: "You can see the back side is still messy. But, who cares!?"
Spooky Ghost: Could this take a full on run to a shoulder or something and still stay
Sun Praiser: Made one. I didn't really believe it, but I tried it in a LARP, and, oh
god, it worked really well. It was light, lighter than any wooden shield,
and really though. I took heavy hits, fell on it, fell in the mud, it was
raining for a few hours, I had no problems at all.
I recommand it, to anyone searching for a good and cheap shield. Made mine
for less than $10.
Marika Howell: is this larp legal?
Ultima Haxor: this sheild looks real legit but how much did it cost (plz answer)
MizBizL: Can you spray Paint on it?
Million Ways to Play: why make a foam shield that`ll brake much quicker than a wooden one? Sure,
wood is heavy, but it`ll last longer.

James Tello Jr.: try foamcore posterboard- more durability
spacecadet35: Good tutorial. We use "fluteboard" or "coreflute" (like they use for real
estate signs) instead of cardboard. But the principle is the same.
gatheringthemagic98: What on earth is gutter strapping? Id really like to find some. Btw not
sure if you know...the link to your site is broken
MasterQueb222: The tape is incredibly ugly
Yin Chu: Thanks for the tutorial!
Mysticolored: I live in hawaii, so I don't have pipe insulator, what else can i use?
neal justus: i like what you do with the fome stuff can you do the same thing but with
wood instead of cardboard
Tomas Rocha Martins: How would you recommend making a center grip shield?
EpicWinNoob: Okay Let's see yours.
ladyofthegaladrhim: Could you make a tutorial for a elven shield?
MrKrendin: This shield is very nice...I used the same design for mine, and it has held
up a beating. Thanks for making this video and I just used the same
concepts for a bigger one. Thank again.
Krystian Bulicz: That's right!
James Fullmer: @DuykRuyk A surprising amount. My teens have used them for years and they
are only just getting to show wear and tear.
James Fullmer: @psychowaffle2010 Very
PuppeteerGaming: How much would something like this cost, relatively speaking?
Khrene Cleaver: @tomballom yeah, this is the same tactic I used to make a cardboards sword.
The problem lies with the foam. You'd have to wrap the foam around the
shield in a different manor or leave it out all together based on on the
RTard48JRod: MAKE MORE TUTS PLEASE!!! you are soo professional! thank you my lord~!
QuynnV: @JurassicDavidy Oh well get them off of eBay or better yet buy a shield
James Fullmer: @tomballom (A quote from Raising Arizona) "Baloons! Hey these blow up into
funny shapes at all?" "Well, no - Unless round is funny." Try any shape you
like. I like round.
Thomas van Orsouw: Round ís a pretty classic shape, you know? ;)
James Fullmer: You wouldn't think so but you'd be wrong. It's surprisingly strong. And the
cardboard core makes it very light, much safer and requires less padding.
Kim Brown: oh ya, and also, it i put a piece of the foam completely over it and stuff
it with news paper will this help with recoil? i battle friends with nerf
swords, and the shields they sell just dont do the job, my friends play
Raguel22: @KenteousAwe if you place a pin in the center of the cardboard and tie a
string to it, and then your cutting tool to the other end (keeping in mind
your using the radius size not the diameter) you can use it to cut evenly
in a circle. Just duct tape the small hole when your done... :) or just
draw the line you will cut along this way but instead of the knife use a
pencil or pen..
Smittfortunes: Does this pass dagorhir weapons tests?
Elzstudeos: is it okay to use gorilla glue
Thom8264: You can never have enough duct tape.
Porterhaus: How'd i make a Boss for this? I'm going with a Viking loadout and i'd like
to have an accurate shield.
tomballom: Could you do this without it being a circle shape?
CptTrippsMusic: You can get treadmill mats at sears for about 25 to 30 and you get a fairly
the internet: this shield is supposed to be this size and shape idiots; its a boffer
shield for play not larping.
nomad82shuffler: love this shield
MegaMetal4eva: 1 Question, I do 12th century medieval re-enacting and we use wooden
shields with rawhide around the outside and painted linen on the front (to
stop the wood chipping as we use blunt steel weapons). Is this ok to use in
LARP as my gf wants me to join in with her and if not do the LARP style
shields last longer than they look (cos they look to me as if they will
fall apart after a few hours of fighting, although that may be because
re-enactment fighting is more brutal and I'm used to that).
Jason Todd: Love this. Good for the common man who doesnt want to go expensive or
tomcorocks45: lol, the backside is still messy :P
nerfreconmaster752: He said 7/8" at 3:31 didn't he?
DRiguana72: Would it be at all possible to maybe make a tutorial on building a square
Ian Aguilar: is there any other tape i can use like duck tape and can i first tape the
hose before the shield's body??????????
James Fullmer: @nomad82shuffler You are now my new favorite person.
TheStarwarskid1997: Is this shield Belegarth legal?
psychowaffle2010: is this sturdy? i need to know asap
Dwight Angelo: :D
Dannor the planeswalker: hi im thinking of makinjg a sheild like this but a few questions first: can
you tape the foam onto the cardboard instead of using that spay stuff and
can you use only 2 layers of cardboard instead of 4? please reply that
would help me out alot. ;)
