Early in our planning, Mike and I came up with the idea of having each of the dining tables have a centerpiece based on one of the items in Zelda. The very first item I made was the bomb. Bombs are one of my favorite items in the game. You can use them to blow open secret passage ways and kill enemies.
One of my favorite aspects of the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, was the way that the smoke animation was done for the bombs. It’s this beautiful swirly color changing cloud and I wanted to capture that in my bomb centerpiece.
A few family members might be turned off by a bomb at a wedding, but there’s no way I could leave it out. It’s such an important and iconic item in The Legend of Zelda and is perhaps my favorite centerpiece. I wish I had a plushy version of it to squeeze at night because it’s so cute!
This was made using a giant Styrofoam ball, craft foam, acrylic gel medium, marble paste, and acrylic paints.
