In The Legend of Zelda Hylian Shields are important — you know why? Because they don't completely burn to ashes when touched in the frickin' fire dungeon ya dingus! Leigh Klaver from Melbourne loves this shield so much he attempted to make one in real life. Then he put together a fairly comprehensive guide on how to build it from scratch.
Leigh's been kind enough to let us cherry pick a few pics from our site, but if you want to find out, in great detail, how to build one for yourself, you should head over to his site. It's serious business man. A lot of work went into this thing.
