once known as Master Sir Aethelhere the Unsteady KSCA, OL, Kingdom of An Tir, in the Society for Creative Anachronism (for which our mom has a great love an' affinity), mr. deboer realized at an early age that many things could be made from metal, an' he went on to study blacksmithing, jewelry making, and many such things.

sadly, Sir Aethelhere went to glory in the Holy Land some years ago, but fortunately, mr. deboer remains with us here in the present to astonish and delight us. to see more, click here.

the spirit of chivalry lives on!

Oh my goodness. That is the coolest thing I've seen in a very long time. I have got to get me a set. Then I can ride off to the mean publisher that fired my Sugar Pie's mommy and poke them in the hiney with my lance.

My woman has seen this before! I'd like to know why it's always a damsel in distress? I'm not going to sit still and allow myself to be singed by some dragon while I wait for Chase, Bombay, and Victor to get their armor on! Gimme some feline brass knuckles, and I'll take care of that dragon meself. ::Snort::
My beans went to a Ren Faire over the weekend - pictures on flickr.

Armor for cats, that is the neatest thing. I want one.
Hi 5 paw,

I would like a cat to come rescue me in one of those. Cool stuff.
