13 Iconic Accessories From Literature That You Can Actually Buy In Real Life

If you ask your friends and family what they want for the holidays, they'll probably demure and ask for something sensible. They'll need a new non-stick pan, or a nice sweater. They'll claim to be "happy with anything." But deep in their eyes, you can see that all they really, truly want out of this life and this world is a full-sized replica of Brienne of Tarth's sword, Oathkeeper, from A Song of Ice and Fire. Lucky for them (and for you), quite a few of the fantastical accessories of fiction are also available for purchase in the real world. Here are a few literary objects that you can buy, display, and wear in real life, because everyone deserves the occasional giant sword.

After all, part of the joy of reading fiction is imagining yourself in that fictional world. And since we haven't yet developed the technology to physically jump into our favorite book series, owning a small piece of the story will have to do for now. You can cast a spell with your very own wand, fight criminals with your own magic lasso, or solve crimes with your own deerstalker hat. Sure, most of these accessories won't work exactly like they do in the books (please don't actually stab anyone with your replica swords), but they will bring a lot of joy to you and your fellow book-lovers:
