You can buy a real-life Zelda: Breath of the Wild Spirit Orb and they're so darn pretty

In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Link has to demonstrate his wits and strength to earn Spirit Orbs from ancient shrines. In real life, you can just order them off of Etsy for $60 or about £48 (without shipping). CuteMonsterProps shared the clever creation on Reddit and instantly captured both my inner Zelda fan and lover of shiny round things.

These Spirit Orbs are about 2 3/4" in diameter and are made from glass balls with a flat bottom. So no, they're not an exact replica of the roughly dodgeball-sized things that desiccated corpses repeatedly shoot into Link's chest. But at least this way it won't roll around while you're trying to take pictures. CuteMonsterProps uses laser etching to make the 3D design in the center of the orb then special glass-tinting spray paint to give it that lovely purple color.

Here's a picture of the 3D design lit up from underneath with the optional LED stand.

The Spirit Orbs are currently up for pre-order and even though I definitely don't need one (how could you possibly need one) I am strongly considering it. Like I said, I have a weakness for shiny round things.
