"Last week, we randomly stumbled on this photo in the deep bowels of the web. Having no caption or accompanying details, we didn’t know what we were looking at; we just knew this “Armor Dress” was insanely awesome and would make anyone wearing it look like a total badass.
We came to learn – thanks Google! – that the dress was connected to a historic armory in Graz, Austria. So we sent an email to the museum’s director in the hopes of understanding what one would do in such a frock. While we anxiously awaited her response, we posted the picture to our Facebook page as a fun “Midday Medieval Moment,” and that’s when a totally unexpected frenzy of curiosity ensued."
