dinosaur heels Talk about walking with dinosaurs! Kick it really (really) old school with a pair of Dinosaur Heels that look just as good touring Jurassic Park as they do strolling down Park Avenue.

Forging Links Master Sword - Twilight Princess version Okay so it's not literally forging because it's made from wood, but it sounds better then making. I've been meaning to write this Instructable for almost a year after completing my Master Sword back in May 2009, but things have always seemed to get in the way until now. I've always been a great fan of all of the Zelda games and I knew it was only time before I attempted to make a replica from one of the games. So in this tutorial I will be showing you the steps I took to produce my Master Sword. I've gone for the sword from Twilight Princess as it's the most detailed Master Sword to date and it looks the best. Update 27th May 2011 I've begun work on the Hylian Shield.
