...because why not?
Sometimes a friend comes to you with a toy squirrel, and that squirrel needs armour.
...well ok, maybe this doesn't happen that often, but I could hardly leave the poor thing defenceless against the world, could I?
Time for tiny armour!
This squirrel's armour was made from scraps of roughly 1mm thick veg-tan leather, with sections of 4 in 1 chainmaille.
I added a little bit of detailing on the vambraces, ear guards, and main edges.
The armour is removable, with a little hook and eye clasp at the shoulder to detach the chest and back plate.
Sadly I neglected to take a reasonable photo of the chest plate, but rest assured our squirrel buddy is not lacking in torso protection!
This was a fun little project, and I reckon this squirrel looks ready to take on the world!
