What’s even more adorable than a Shetland pony? Two Shetland ponies. Better than that? Two Shetland ponies wearing massive Scottish sweaters. That’s the genius idea the Scottish tourism board dreamed up to publicize "The Year of Natural Scotland." We haven’t been able to stop looking at these pictures, so they must be doing something right. While we wait for other countries to follow suit — Russian bears in those bushy hats? Aussie kangaroos in bikinis? — we’ll just echo the words of a commenter on the tourism board’s website. "Somebody needs a raise."
100% wearable, flexible, and comfortable, the Cat Battle Armor is a for-reals armor harness for your kitty. Completely hand-made from durable veg-tan leather, this is no mere costume piece. Your cat will become an unstoppable force for slaughter in this fully articulated suit, shielding him/her from foes while allowing unimpeded movement across the battlefield or living room floor. The imposing torso section features several riveted, articulated plates and a terrifying rack of dorsal spines. Your cat’s hindquarters are sheathed beneath exquisitely arrayed overlapping scales stitched to a soft leather backing, adorned with nickel silver dome rivets. Midnight black scales and plates are finished with a glossy protective coat and seamlessly join together like the petals of a deadly flower. Adjustable at the collar with elastic and two nickel silver buckles, and at the belly with grommeted corset-style lacing for a secure, comfortable fit. Available on Etsy
