Looking like something out of Mad Max or some other post-apocalyptic wasteland, this armor was made from old traffic signs, and ready to slow down – and eventually stop – all who dare come at it.
The breastplate was made by attaching pieces of traffic signs to an old set of football pads, in a pattern that’s based on ancient Roman Lorcia Segmentata armor. Its maker, Ivan Owen of Chain Crafts, cut out 18 pieces of signs, and then hand hammered them into the shapes you see here.
You most definitely won’t want to mess with anyone wearing this – especially if they’re wielding axes, like this guy and girl.
The traffic sign breastplate armor is available over on Etsy for $450(USD). Mohawk sold separately.
