It isn’t easy finding chain-mail armor in toddler sizes.

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.
I’m sure the toddler’s tunic was just borrowed from a local hobbit.
Sance people are so funny.
omg the chick… is hot… she has a pair of nice…
You can thank Baby Chain Mail for some of that…
Does a chain mail camisole make any sense?
Once a King always a king.. But once a Knight is enough!
Does anyone notice the smiley face on her armour over her girly bits?
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.
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!
This photo was OBVIOUSLY metal-shopped…
(honest, I’m sorry…couldn’t resist…)
I hope I won’t be band for this comment… or chained…
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!
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.
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.
Is that Sir-Not appearing in this film from Monty Python & the Holy Grail?
This comment may actually be more awkward than that photo….
Baby chain mail!
The kid couldn’t eat…the chian-mail nursing bra had not been invented yet
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…
One man’s awkward is another man’s Disneyland!
Is it just my imagination or is there a red crusaders cross under the babys chainmail?
Look at the collar links, I think they and the cross are colored links within the maille garment itself. Pretty creative.
Did they have belly dancers in medieval times?
Belly dancers existed. Did they make it to Europe in Medieval times or wear chain mail? Not probable.
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.
Ha! An impenetrable onesie! And the Knight-Knight title was THE BEST EVER!
It is so nice to see what the Amy Misto Family has been up too.
^ funniest comment yet! LOL!
That was a good one. Amy Misto family is a AFP classic.
So inauthentic. What kind of medieval baby wears a disposable diaper. Pshhh!
I recognize that tree ring – TRF for the win!
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
Oh wow, it is TRF, isn’t it? Wow, wonder when this was taken?
Nope, it’s Bristol in Kenosha, WI. But the guy who made that chain maille also does TRF.
i always wondered how these children would turn out…?
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.
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!
No fair! My parents wouldn’t do that! Lucky baby!
They need to change that kid…looks like his mail is rusting.
Baby is a result of mom & dad having a little too much cheap mead at the Renn Faire and using a chainmail condom…
purely awesome comment! my friend works at the Renn Faire! this just made my day! thanks!
Last time Mom wore that outfit, Dad got out the WD-40 and Young Sir Poopsalot arrived 9 months later.
HA! My vote for the baby’s name!
Damn, hcw80! You beat me to it!
Try as they might, neither one could pull young Jason Excalibur from the stone beneath his tiny, glowing foot…
^.^ That’s the first comment to really make me laugh. I didn’t even notice that. Thank you!
She has huge … tracts of land.
Oh, Gawd, pee myself laughing there!
Yes, but I’d rather, just….. siiiiiiing……
Stop that! Stop that! They’ll be no singing here!
The kid’s name is probably something really awesome too…like from LOTR or some other mythilogical movie…poor kid…scared for life…
The god of thunder – mighty Thor!
those are some nice funbags she has. Nom, nom, nom, nom!!
If that kid isn’t careful he’s going to end up with early braces.
It’s a bad Carrie Fisher impersonation she’s doing.
That’s not chain mail. Someone crocheted those.
no. this a regular 4 in 1 pattern. real chainmail
Also, if I were a betting women I would bet those little numbers are knitted!
No, I’d be betting that is real chain mail….it looks like it from the way it is hanging, and people actually do that, you know.
I think his is real. THe others are knitted.
My sister knows/knows of at least three people who do chain mail. I met a girl who did earrings, a bracelet and a choker out of chain mail for a contest.
actually the process of making chainmail is called “knitting” so there you go.
This is so unnecessary, yet so amazing.
