Guinea Pig Suit of Armor Up For Sale

Posted on June 18, 2013 by

When his guinea pig Lucky didn’t wake up from his nap, Sean McCoy was left with a broken heart and an empty custom mini-suit of armour.

But one man’s misfortune may just be another man’s treasure as McCoy is putting Lucky’s chain mail and helmut up for sale.

Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable?,” reads the eBay description. “Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a┬áRenaissance Faire but had nothing to wear? Fear not! A solution is here!”

While the mini-suit of armour is incredibly badass, Lucky didn’t seem to think so. The guinea pig only wore it once for a photo shoot, according to McCoy in an interview with CNN. But hopefully another miniature creature will love it more than Lucky did.

At the time of publishing, the current bid for Lucky’s suit of armour is at $10,100 USD. Fear not! There are three days left in the auction with all proceeds going towards The Metropolitan Guinea Pig Rescue in Virginia.
