Barbie dolls have an insanely large wardrobe. They come with extra outfits and accessories, but none of them come with armor. What if Barbie needs to make a stand on the battlefield? She’d be screwed! Luckily, Jim Rodda is helping Barbie be prepared by Kickstarting 3D printed medieval armor sized to fit her. Awesome.
He’s already designed a prototype (pictured above) and is planning to fancy it up to fit into Barbie’s style. Yes, it will include a sword and shield. The Kickstarter will enable him to distribute digital files that backers will then need to get printed. I’ve got to say, I think the armor suits her.
