Chicks in Chainmail

Chicks in Chainmail

Sony Online Entertainment is holding a contest to seek out a lookalike for EverQuest babe Antonia Bayle.

I am always amused by the ridiculously impractical nature of these costumes. I don't know if any of my readers are women, but I'm guessing such clothes are pretty uncomfortable.

The best commentary on chicks in chainmail bikinis comes from the old Robotech cartoon (Macross, for your anime fiends). In it, the aliens are watching a beauty pageant's swimsuit competition.

"Perhaps it's armor."
"Then why does it only cover such a small proportion of their body?"
"Maybe those are the only parts that are vulnerable."
