    Ren-FAIL. HA!

  2. Stephanie says:

    Is this at the Bristal Ren fair? Think I have seen you there.

  3. Boppie says:

    On the one hand, I’m proud for mom that she can rock the skimpy chain mail (and who ever thought I would be putting those words togetherr today), but on the other, the whole point of chain mail is to turn aside a blade and protect the flesh underneath from a bladed edge, right? She looks like an accident waiting to happen in that get-up, and don’t even mention the sunburn she’s asking for!

  4. Rachel says:

    Anyone else notice the awkward “smiley face” tears in her chain mail…looks like the smile is in an awkward place

  5. Robin says:

    Oh, no. No, no, no, no no.

    Baby’s First Crusade

  7. Bernardo says:

    It’s mithril, fit for kings!

  8. Nicole says:

    I was going to take this *exact* same picture with my son, but all of our chain mail is at the dry cleaners. O_o

    (no, no I wasn’t)

  9. Keisa says:

    I didn’t know belly dancers wore chain mail!

  10. laura says:

    ouch, that kid needs a shirt on.

  11. San Fran says:

    Hey, maybe they are just getting ready to go to the maul?

  12. DavidO says:

    How bad is it that I don’t find this all that awkward????

    • Marc's Nymph says:

      LMAO! It’s okay, I think it’s totally cute and they look like a happy family. It’s a little awkward but overall I think it’s great and you can just bet that one of them made the chainmaille. I think it’s pretty awesome. That being said so many of the comments here were totally hilarious and yes the mom is looking pretty damn awesome in her chainmaille bikini after having a baby.

  13. John III says:

    Why isn’t the compound bow in the picture? It would look good here!

  14. alysha says:

    The girls chain has a smiley face cut out of it…..only friendly fire here folks…

  15. DenMark says:

    Who’da thought Oshkosh B’Gosh had a line of chain mail? When he reaches adolescence and see’s this picture, they’re going to need their chain mail for more than make believe.

  16. Dawn says:

    My question is: why is HE fully clothed, SHE hardly, and BABY not at all? (ok, I think there’s a diaper there). I can’t imagine that chain mail would be comfortable against bare skin??

    • BeeBelle says:

      Theatrical chain mail is often knitted, you can’t really tell in the picture, but other commenters think it looks like knit.

  17. Kelly says:

    That’s just adorable and at least everyone looks happy to be there. Well, the baby doesn’t look thrilled or anything, but there’s no tears so that’s a good sign. I agree with Liz about looking good after kids as well. I still don’t look that good and my kid is eight.

  18. Jenny says:

    Actually, I think the baby is pretty cute. The parents kind of ruin it! Why is the bottom of mom’s “top” smiling? 🙂

  19. Pertigal says:

    I’d say they nailed this photo! I think the photographer had some ArmorAll on hand.

  20. TdF says:

    Shark got the one leg, not gonna get the other.

  21. Veggie Kitty says:

    I’m more concerned that the mom is using her chainmaille for the sexy medieval look versus genuine battle protection. At least the kid is prepared for a joust if needed!

  22. Don says:

    Slaying dragons. Rescuing damsels in distress. Searching for the Holy Grail. This is what comes to mind when we think about knights. But what did they do in their spare time? May I present Sir Archibald….creator of hopscotch.

  23. Whoa says:

    They’re gonna have a tough time getting through security at the airport.

  24. bmj2k says:

    Seriously, the mother’s chain mail is hardly protective at all.

  25. Virginia says:

    Meant to add that it’s the only time I’d be able to get away with that! As boys get older, they get totally embarrassed in public with their mom in a bikini. My boys would be like “Mooooooommmm!” LOL

  26. suzushii says:

    OLD! I’ve totally seen this picture before in one of them chain mails

    ba dum TISH!

  27. powermuffin says:

    I don’t see anything awkward. I see a kid who will definitely not be bullied in the schoolyard.

  28. Christina says:

    Maybe they hadn’t realized it up to this point but even worse than finding chain mail in that size is getting it off lmao. My ex made some for our son who was about 2 at the time. We actually had to turn him upside down. He held him by his feet while I worked trying to get it off-it was no easy task lol fun times.

  29. Matt K says:

    I see the baby has his right leg lopped off at the knee. “Merely a flesh wound.”

  30. Karen says:

    Is that a smiley face with ears in her chainmail? interesting!

  31. Chuck Martel says:

    But the chain mail diapers don’t work very well.

  32. Laura says:

    Isn’t that “Sir Not Appearing In This Film”?

  33. Dan says:

    I bet that’s home made.

  34. Mark says:

    The kid looks like he’s got his escape route planned out already.

  35. steve says:

    Why go to all the trouble of elaborate chain-mail and then just wear black Dockers and shoes?

  36. D... says:

    Knight-Knight? I see two good pillows to lay my head upon!

  37. Shannon says:

    This is actually pretty awesome. I’m guessing one or both of the parents makes chainmail. The baby’s chainmail shirt is too cute!

  38. Shawna says:

    Papa there probably made the chainmail. If so he did an excellent job!

  39. Kerry says:

    Breastfeeding in the getup must be awkward

    • SANDI says:

      come on do you really think he is still being breast fed.??? Don’t think so.. mom of 7

      • Leslie says:

        Uh, why not..he isn’t even 2 yet, the WHO/and AAPD recommended age for stopping…so, yeah, he might just still be breastfed. “Mom of 7” that stopped way too soon.

      • Ponyo says:

        You might be surprised. When I was a teacher one mother wanted to come to the school at lunchtime and breastfeed her 5 year old, because she still was at home. Still, these parents don’t look the type, that Mum is not the clingy type for sure.

      • Val says:

        My son is at twice that age.

        She’s rather well endowed. Perhaps she’s engorged due to not being able to breastfeed in that getup.

      • Kerry says:

        The kid doesn’t even look 1 year old yet. He’s not even standing on his own. Why would he not still be breastfeeding?

  40. tracy says:

    strangely enough… this is actually one of the way more normal pictures on this site. that’s not to say that we won’t be seeing this family on ‘wife swap’ in 10-15 years, where junior just wants to rock on his guitar & chat on fb all day while mom & dad are out working on their performance art.

  41. Renagade676 says:

    Ask any dragon, babies are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

  42. Dramaking says:

    That’s some risqué armor she’s wearing.

  43. El Kev says:

    Let’s just cut straight to the chase here, and say that the parents are anxiously awaiting their young child to open up his/her first compound bow.

  44. patrick says:

    Awkward Knight level 78

  45. Natashia says:

    They are cousins to one of the Knight who say Ni…

  46. Liz says:

    I wish I looked that good in chainmail after having MY kids!

  47. Ginny says:

    No sharks are gonna eat that baby.

  48. Lydia says:

    First! and that is so funny!

    • chickens eat bananas and poop bandanas? says:

      Obviously you weren’t first, spammer. Now who looks like a fool? Let me give you a hint, it isn’t the people in the picture.

  49. A Chick says:

    They have to hold the baby up because the chainmale is too heavy, awkward. I wonder is this a wedding ceremony.
