Going as Link for Halloween? Finish Off Your Costume with a Real Hylian Shield

by Paul Strauss

Attention Zelda fans! If you’ve been debating whether or not to show up as Link at your office Halloween party this year, I think I might have the thing that pushes you over the edge. Check out this beautifully-crafted Hylian shield, perfect for protecting yourself from your co-workers (and Octorocs).


As you can see, this isn’t one of those cheap mass-produced plastic Hylian shields you can buy at a costume store. It’s a handmade shield, crafted from wood, and wrapped with hand-tooled and dyed leather and upholstery tacks. It was made by Etsy seller Aradani, who creates all sorts of fun coplay accessories for conventions and Renaissance festivals. This particular Hylian shield measures 24″ tall by 18″ wide, and is based on the silver one Link donned as the Fierce Diety in Majora’s Mask, but can also be customized with the more traditional metallic blue if you’d rather go with that look.


It’s priced at $400 (USD) over on Etsy, so it’s not exactly pocket change, but if you’re a serious Zelda fanatic, it’s a worthwhile addition to your collection, and there’s clearly a ton of labor that went into making it.
