It's also a good way to ensure a cat with couch potato tendencies gets some exercise.
THAT is one of the reason why I will NEVER have a cat.

I know that I would tease the cat with a laser to the point where the cat got bored.

I've tried them but my cat doesn't care about laser pointers.

Oh, they don't get bored. They just get tired. Some rest, and... WHAM. ;)
"The Making of the Medieval-inspired 3D printed women’s Sovereign Armor":

http://lumecluster.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/SovereignArmor_DreamerRegalia.jpg

The left armor--named Dreamer Regalia--was made by Melissa Ng for Felicia Day (who models it here) while that on the right--Sovereign Armor--is Ng's latest project.

It's a shame someone went to ask that effort, made such beautiful pieces, and doesn't know the first thing about armour design.

It's not about armor, it's about making D&D artwork real.

And, arguably, about paying Felicia Day roughly my annual salary to spend 6 hours wearing it in public.

My D&D characters wouldn't get caught dead in armour that lowers your AC. But then my main character is a very practical former blacksmith.

Meh. Would you rather look good or be caught dead in bad-looking though practical armor?

I'm with dv. I'd pay a princely sum to have Felicia Day appear regularly in the Dreamer Regalia.

Well, enjoy it now. It stops in about ten years and doesn't pick up again until after college. And that's only if her therapist says it's ok. :p

Nah; teenagers just suck. I'm sure your kids'll come around and have a healthy relationship with her parents afterwards, like most normal people do.

But in the interim, you'll want to strangle the little brat. ;)

I would be surprised if Day was paid anything to do that shoot and even if she was paid it would not be 5 figures, more like 3 figures if she is very lucky.

What about "all travel expenses, plus you get to keep the costume"?

Is that the case? If that was laid out in the story I missed it.
Modeling is like sports. Most models work for pics and credits, a smaller number get paid a small amount and only a tiny elite actually make a living doing it.
Consider this: The centerfold models for Playboy used to be paid travel, lodging and $10,000 and that was considered a top gig. A young model doing a shoot for a clothing catalog might get paid as much as $500 for an entire day of shooting.

You're coming at it from the wrong angle. And the wrong subculture. ;)

She's an actress, not just a model. She's been in enough "nerd chic" tv and films that she should be getting paid at least as much for her appearances as, say, Neil Patrick Harris. For a big event like comic-con, that could easily be $20k+ for the weekend. And that's if she doesn't wear the stupid armor.

The article I linked to was for the second set of fantasy armor but there were links on that page to the first set.

Ng--the maker of both sets of armor--made Dreamer Regalia SPECIFICALLY for Day. Ng did it as a "favor" to Day for being the inspiration via Day's "The Guild" series for Ng to go for her dream of being a creator of such pieces.

I am uncertain as to where Dreamer Regalia is currently. My impression is that Ng kept it as a demo of what she is capable of making and not that Day has it on display in her living room. On the other hand Day did use her influence to persuade a leading 3D modeling company to allow Ng access to their equipment so that Ng could fully realize its creation. I would fully understand if Ng simply gave Dreamer Regalia to Day.

I was joking. But if she's geeky enough she may do it for very little?

I know, mythbusters did something with water heaters.
BTW: Ng's web site--my first link in that post about the fantasy armor--is currently down due to the high volume of traffic it had gotten.

Recall TRAPPIST-1?

Unfortunately, recent observations of the star show that it is subject to frequent and violent flares, which is made worse by the fact that the seven newly discovered exoplanets are so close to TRAPPIST-1 that they have no chance of retaining atmospheres.
