Finally, A Decent Set Of Armor For Guinea Pigs

You know what the main problem with guinea pigs is? They're vulnerable in battle. Thankfully, eBay seller mightys0x in selling this custom made guinea pig sized scale mail. 100% of the proceeds from the sale go to Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue, which is very noble of the seller and ties into the whole chain mail thing perfectly because like, knights and nobility and all that. That's not a stretch you're a stretch.

The scale-mail is made from polished steel scales and steel rings. It was painstakingly "woven" by me over several weeks in an effort to better prepare my guinea pig Lucky for the dangers of the modern world. The helmet was purchased at a Renaissance Faire later as it was the perfect finishing touch.


Lucky passed away this weekend, and no longer requires his noble suit of armor. In his honor and memory, any money from this auction (after Ebay fees) will go to the Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue in Virginia. Lucky was adopted from the organization, and they're a fantastic group who do all they can to find, foster and adopt (to others) Guinea Pigs in the northern Virginia area.

Bidding is already up to $445 with four days remaining, and I really hope people are taking this seriously and not just trying to be funny. Because if you ever catch yourself telling someone 'LOL, I BID ON A CHARITY AUCTION AS A JOKE!', congratulations, you're the least funny of all your friends.

Hit the jump for a couple more shots including Lucky wearing the armor WHILE RIDING A JETSKI.

Thanks to Jeff C, who once rode an armored guinea pig into battle AND SOAKED THE BATTLEFIELD WITH THE BLOOD OF HIS ENEMIES. Wow. Does blood kill grass?

There are Comments.
  • Woah. You got to be kidding me.
    Anyways, I guess it's easy to see why the humans are obsessed over dressing us up. It's...actually..**coff coff coff** cute.
    I didn't even think that work was in a male's vocabulary! The word....cute. I hope I didn't damage my manliness!

    it is Scale mail

    Check out this dude who was referenced in the Ebay posting. He makes mouse plate mail, which is really a nice step up in AC if you're really serious about this sort of thing.

    Now it's OP. Ban this filth when it's released as a weapon pack in BF4.

  • Prometheus

    It's kinda sad.

    I want a guinea pig now so I can dress it up as a knight.

  • Richard Dean Ingham

    That looks more like Scale Mail than Chain Mail.

    ...I feel shame as a minor action
