    I swear to GOD that’s my 2nd cousin!!! He used to make chain mail for a hobby. (obviously!) the kid…Calvin is 5ish now.

  2. Barclay says:

    I’m sure the toddler’s tunic was just borrowed from a local hobbit.

  3. Sance people are so funny.

  4. chuck norros says:

    omg the chick… is hot… she has a pair of nice…

  5. Jason says:

    Does a chain mail camisole make any sense?

  6. Rob says:

    Once a King always a king.. But once a Knight is enough!

  7. AmyP says:

    Does anyone notice the smiley face on her armour over her girly bits?

  8. BSE says:

    Is that my ex-boyfriend and his new family? He was very serious about obtaining a chain mail suit…so serious, he refused to use the money for it to fix his truck with a broken axle. I broke up with him soon after. Wow.

    • Es says:

      Your loss :) Most people wouldn’t complain if their partner put something else as a higher priority over putting money into their car!

    Camelot is indeed a silly place.

    Ouch no under shirt for the baby OH thats gotta pinch!

  11. iLOLd says:

    Ugh!!!
    This photo was OBVIOUSLY metal-shopped…

    XD
    (honest, I’m sorry…couldn’t resist…)

  12. thebytewasbit says:

    LMAO! I actually know of a guy that goes by the name “Metal Ken”. I remember EVERYWHERE he went…to people’s houses to hang out, church, etc. he would bring his tools w/ him & he would make chainmail.

    I am SERIOUS! Not making this up!

  13. CatEns says:

    That kid actually looks super cute. Bet he’s pretty uncomfortable though. And I can’t possibly imagine what they had to do to get him into chainmail.

  14. Natasha says:

    Sadly…I don’t find this akward at all…I work at a renaissance faire three months out of the year as a pyrate wench (wooot! I sell swords!)…and this is nothing new to me. lol.

    This is normal. haha!

    I’m actually hoping to get a bikini top made out of aluminum chainmail…that way I can wear it to the beach and all.

  15. gruven_reuven says:

    Is that Sir-Not appearing in this film from Monty Python & the Holy Grail?

  16. Andi says:

    This comment may actually be more awkward than that photo….

  17. Clown3 says:

    The kid couldn’t eat…the chian-mail nursing bra had not been invented yet

  18. Katie says:

    At least the mom’s not wearing a full-on chainmail BIKINI, complete with little chainmail bottoms/skirt. I’m a Ren Faire goer myself–I’ve seen them, they (sadly) do exist! That would add a whole other level of awkward to this photo…

  19. Gail1953 says:

    Is it just my imagination or is there a red crusaders cross under the babys chainmail?

    • Kathleen says:

      Look at the collar links, I think they and the cross are colored links within the maille garment itself. Pretty creative.

  20. Maya B says:

    Did they have belly dancers in medieval times?

  21. Melody says:

    I’ve met that guy! He makes chain mail stuff at Kryle Castle in Ballarat, Australia. I bought a pair of chain mail earrings off him, he’s a great bloke.

  22. Patricia says:

    Ha! An impenetrable onesie! And the Knight-Knight title was THE BEST EVER!

  23. iBlackbook says:

    It is so nice to see what the Amy Misto Family has been up too.

  24. Steph says:

    So inauthentic. What kind of medieval baby wears a disposable diaper. Pshhh!

  25. Vanessa says:

    I recognize that tree ring – TRF for the win!

    • Gwin says:

      Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s the Texas Renaissance Fair… But I haven’t been to any others, perhaps their trees all look the same.

      Those kinda costumes are toward the normal side for TRF, haha

    • Katya says:

      Oh wow, it is TRF, isn’t it? Wow, wonder when this was taken?

  26. uaet says:

    i always wondered how these children would turn out…?

    • Tarliman says:

      Pretty well, actually. My youngest, now age 10, outgrew his first maille shirt four years ago. Now he’s drawing his own comic books and designing video game sprites. Middle son, age 16, just got his learner’s permit. Eldest has turned 21 without getting arrested, has a steady job with benefits and an active social life. I’m an IT trainer and systems monitoring specialist with a large corporation, where I’ve been for the past not quite eight years. We do have lives outside the SCA and the Faire.

      • Es says:

        The most important thing you learn growing up in an un-orthodox family is to treat everyone with respect since you are surrounded by lovely, confident people, and make of life, and reality, whatever you want!

  27. Emobunni says:

    No fair! My parents wouldn’t do that! Lucky baby!

  28. Ryoki says:

    They need to change that kid…looks like his mail is rusting.

  29. Miss Girl says:

    Baby is a result of mom & dad having a little too much cheap mead at the Renn Faire and using a chainmail condom…

  30. hcw80 says:

    Last time Mom wore that outfit, Dad got out the WD-40 and Young Sir Poopsalot arrived 9 months later.

  31. cranky says:

    Try as they might, neither one could pull young Jason Excalibur from the stone beneath his tiny, glowing foot…

  32. theCount says:

    She has huge … tracts of land.

  33. Alli says:

    The kid’s name is probably something really awesome too…like from LOTR or some other mythilogical movie…poor kid…scared for life…

  34. Mr. Juggs says:

    those are some nice funbags she has. Nom, nom, nom, nom!!

  35. Luke Skywalker says:

    It’s a bad Carrie Fisher impersonation she’s doing.

  36. sleepygal says:

    That’s not chain mail. Someone crocheted those.

  37. doreen says:

    Also, if I were a betting women I would bet those little numbers are knitted!

  38. doreen says:

    This is so unnecessary, yet so amazing.
