This is a piece of soda tab chainmail armor left over from my friend's Aragorn-inspired costume.
Yeah I'm just kind of showing off.
Because it looks really awesome and complicated, but it's not. It also makes a great metallic jingle when it moves!
I doubt it would provide any kind of real protection, but for costuming on a budget you can't beat it. The chainmail is labor intensive, but no more than a medium difficulty knitting project of the same size.
