The Perfect Armour

Check this out :

I think this would be the perfect armour of Eve, my mop of a guinea pig (who looks a little less like a mop since her hair cut). Since Eve is the nice one and doesn't attack or bite anything I figure she could use the extra defense. Squee is a rather aggressive guinea pig when she's around Eve or Mynx. She never gets that way if it's just me, she's completely happy to sit on my lap or be nestled into my shoulder.

If it wasn't an auction and I could buy it for $69 right now I would actually be tempted to. But, with 9 days left and only a handful of bidders... I could see it costing almost $500 after all is said and done. Apparently my friend said he has a friend of his who make chain mail so if I really wanted it... they could make it for me. I just wouldn't get the helmet, but the helmet is soo cute!

I could just sea Eve sitting on the carpet now, looking around all decked out in some classy armour. Squee would come over and start chattering her teeth and puffing out her hair, then she's go in for the attack! But Eve would just chuckle and if she could speak she would probably say "oh, that tickles!"

I thought it was made by tin or aluminum before I read the description.
This is made by steel, wouldn't it too heavy for a guinea pig?
Could they run the wheel wearing the armor?

This is probably the coolest invention I've seen in a LONG time! Pretty awesome. I can imagine eve in it too. Cool

Do you think you'd be able to make something similar though?

If I tried to make something like that we wouldn't be calling it Armour, we'd be calling it Death Trap! It would look more like a twisted pile of metal and stuff... poor piggy!

Couldn't resist taking print screens of them. You mentioned once how difficult it was to get them to stand still so you could take photos of them. Wonder how the photographer got them to pose this nicely for the photos? Gotta be a great bond between the two. Very Happy

I really want to see the youtube video of you trying to put the 'mop' into that contraption! Current bid is only $227.50 USD with 8 days left.
Just goes to show you that people have more money than armor (sense)!

edit: $335 with 5 days left. YIKES!

With just under 14 hours left the armour costs about $24,300.00 US dollars!!!
