Your pets may not be going into battle any time soon, but that doesn’t mean they can’t look the part. As Bored Panda reports, the Japanese company Samurai Age sells samurai armor built to protect the cuddly warrior in your life.
Even though traditional samurais didn’t have four legs and a tail, these outfits were designed with historical context in mind. The red get-up in the photo below, for example, channels the armor of real-life warrior Sanada Yukimura of the Senoku period.
This isn’t the first time someone has redesigned old-school battle gear for pets. Artist Jeff de Boer won over the internet when he shared images of his hand-crafted suits of armor for cats. Intended more for display than everyday use, those pieces cost as much as $25,000. The Samurai Age armor, which runs between $125 and $146, seems like a deal by comparison.
Suits come in black, red, gold, and silver and can fit cats and small dogs. Custom orders are also available through the Samurai Age website.
