My awesome wife went to a garage sale the other day, and bought something for me. It was a vintage steel Coca-Cola snack tray. It was a bit banged up and had some dents etc. in it but that made me happy as I therefore wouldnt feel bad about cutting it apart.

It now has a new life as a piece of armor:

For the post apocalyptic lady who thirsts for adventure.

And has a bubbly personality

Only Coca-Cola will do!

.. am I the only one who finds the dead fox draped across the ladys shoulders a tad weird? It looks like its trying to bite her finger. Seek vengeance, Mr. Fox, VENGEANCE!!!

My mom is a coke collector so she would probably shudder at a vintage piece being cut up but would definitely love the result! This is amazing!

That is amazing! I love the thematic consistency of using the soda tabs in chain-mail too. You are super talented.

It's bad enough wasting time, without killing it.
