My awesome friend the Balloon Sage has made some really cool and helpful tutorials for cool boy designs.
The first is the Flame Sword. This is a super cool and fun design. Even if you don’t put the 160 on it is still awesome.

Picture of my replication and daughter modeling with it below.
Here is the link to his super sword tutorial which uses a 350 and a 260.
Also here is a link to his Shield of faith tutorial. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y85pwv6O2dc
He also has another shield tutorial using 350’s.
Now with the shield, his proportions are awesome and the only way I diverged from his design is that I went up and down when making the vertical line in the shield rather than just once. For one thing, you don’t need another balloon because there is enough balloon to make the trip back up and down. It creates a way for the child to easily hold the shield.
I will definitely be making these great designs for boys from now on.
Again, pics below.
