The samurai have evoked much imagination and wonder throughout history. And now, it seems that you can turn your pet into one… or at least look like one. Japanese handicraft company, Samurai Age, specializes in making Samurai armor for bottles to make them look fierce. Now, they’re extending that decorative armor line to pets as well!
Samurai Age will be making these armors as custom made-to-order items, and can be fitted to both cats and dogs. They patterned the armor design to the traditional samurai armor called Oo-Youroi. But don’t worry about it having to restrict your pets’ movements, because because they are lightweight and not cumbersome.
It seems like they also based the red one off of the armor worn by legendary samurai, Sanada Yukimura. You might know him from the Sengoku Basara anime, as well as the Samurai Warriors games.
