Ren-Fair Special

REAL chain mail, People. Real chain mail. On a pup. That's right. Helps protect from random chompage. Nice crest.

Oh, Sarcasta, how do I love thee? <3

Can anyone read heraldry?

What is that? Cross on field of sable and azure, with dog, rampant?

Perhaps Sir Weinelishious could don his mail at the dog show as well, to protect from package poking. Hail to you Sir!

OK - look. I work at a public relations company, and just now I almost answered the phone saying "Puppy Relations."

This is just getting delightfully weird.

OUCH. Poor dog. As this is real chain mail, it WILL pull at its hair. Sorry, this may look cute but in reality the doggie probably suffered a lot whenever it made an attempt to run and especially when the chain mail was taken off.

Chainmail on a puppers? You MUST be jousting!!!

Where's their scabbard for their +2 Canines of Sharpness?

The Guy Over There
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 12:12 PM

have to agree with rojukene. i thought the same thing immediately. sure, it's cute to look at...but if it is, in fact, real chain mail, then that's not so cool. that stuff is heavy and uncomfortable. poor doggie.

valerie
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 12:14 PM

Theeeeeeeo. Whar is he?

ROFL! That is so good!! I hope you used an extra strong tissue to catch it.

I've seen knitting and crochet patterns that make stitches like this.

Claudia
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 12:19 PM

In spite of the claim of "real chain mail", this looks like gray yarn knit with big needles into a sweater-vestie that just happened to look enough like metal that the owner said to him/herself "with a doggie crest safetypinned on, this could pass for a Halloween constume!" and commenced forthwith to make it so.

That's my thought, anyway.

Mary
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 12:19 PM

and now I see Claudia seems to have had the same thought.

Mary
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 12:20 PM

Mary - great minds and all that!

I feel sorry for the Huffs and Nuffs. Must be a miserable existence only seeing negatives and expecting the worst.

Claudia
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 12:26 PM

Agreed. That is one happy looking pup. Not uncomferbuls at all. I don't think someone who loved thier dog enough to take them out dressed all fancy would let them be uncomfortable.

I'm pretty sure that was knitted on broomstick lace needles with a nice pewter yarn. If you haven't seen what they're doing with yarns lately, you'll be amazed.

They do look pretty happy... his tail is up in the "look at me I'm cute" attitude.

better to feel a little uncomfortable than to get one's package poked.

It looks like chainmail to me... a piece that small isn't that heavy, weight is evenly distributed, it really isn't a burden. And the dogs I've seen wear chainmail never had a problem with fur-pullage.

Argentee
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 12:58 PM

Yeah, stop harshing the kyoot peeps. This is damnably cute!

carolina

poor puppeh in the back...I feel sorry for him...Not only does he NOT have spiffy chainmail, but it looks like the SUN is in his widdle eyes, and he's squinting.....poor neglected puppeh needs chainmail AND SHADES! (or maybe a little helmet with a sunshield???)

yea verily you guys r silly

A very interesting site, I think. The Idea of Technometry was new for me but worth to be read and thought abot it (although I'm not a native english-speaker and have some difficulties whith this language)

Aherm, as someone who once had to wear a chainmail bikini for my job at the RenFest, I can attest that well made chainmail doesn't pull hair or pinch at all. It's just the cruddy homemade stuff that does.

Thank goodness no photos of MY chainmail wearing days have survived. [singsong]: No they didn't!

Redzilla
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 01:05 PM

Redzilla:

You where one of THE Chainmail Bikini Babes(tm)! I am shocked, SHOCKED I SAY!

And then I said NEE!

Rafael
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 01:09 PM

Redz - this bikini thing...were there others like you? Were you part of a chain gang?

Aubrey
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 01:16 PM

Redzilla the barbarian: chicks in chainmail. My 18 year old son says to tell you "Woot!"

MamaDawn
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 01:18 PM

That is some first class 'mail!

For some reason, the scene in Court Jester where Danny Kaye gets knighted in tripletime comes to mind - "Is he a dog of valour and courtesy? Yea, verily, yea!"

 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 01:19 PM

No, Aubs, no chain gang. We were a ch-ch-ch-chain of fools.

Redzilla
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 01:23 PM

Redz:
I can see you all now (oh dear) - you must have looked dar-link!

Aubrey
 |  Oct 26, 2006 at 01:28 PM

I think that may be Sir Oscar de la Mayer, from the Michigan Renaissance Faire. He has been knighted by the Queen at that faire. :) If it *is* him, it's real chainmaile, and he LOVES it. He loves the attention it brings, too. He's known as the "Weenie Warrior." His "brother" is the "Weenie Wizard," complete with costume.

I know a few folks that make chainmail and yeah its very heavy when you are holding a shirt of it in your hands.
However when worn the weight is distrubuted more evenly and it's all that bad. The concern I'd have for Sir Doggersons is that they put some sort of cloth between the metal and fur. Even arm hair get caught if not protected.
I actually witteness some rather hairy and foolish fellow extricating himself from a chainmail shirt. It was not at all pretty.

Ok, my $2 (not just inflation...)

I am a knitter. This is not knit. YOu can see ring sturcture, it's not all "stripes" like reversed Stockinget stitch, you can't see the v structure every other row you get with garter st, there is no row direction, which you would see on knitting, and the drape is just not right for that solidly knitted that piece would be. By teh by, "broomstick" knitting has a much larger gauge- like 3 st=2" and uses much bigger yarn. This is a gauge you would get by working worsted on 8s, say, hardly "broomstick" unless you learned it in WWII.

Also I have yet to see yarn that is that oxidize AL color that also has teh correct sheen. Being part jackdaw, I have an eye for shiny yarns!

If this is good mail, half the rings are riveted shut, no grab there!

this looks like it was made by a good mail maker- tightly constructed- little show thru, less to grab.

Making mail out of aluminium shaves off so much weight.

Doggies in horse barding or armor always make me giggle!

WHEEEE Allie, I live 5 minutes from the Mich. Ren. Fest! Huzzah for Sir Oscar and The Weenie Wizard!!
