Metal armour stiletto heels from Babylon 5 by Sword & Stone

At the Burbank-based workshop of Sword & Stone, master blacksmith Tony Swatton forges handcrafted pieces — some futuristic, some historically accurate — for use in TV, movies, and on stage.

Their website is full of droolworthy works created for Hollywood clients, but none so glorious as this pair of metal! armour! stiletto! heels! crafted by Swatton for the science fiction television series Babylon 5.

Beth Holley of Sword & Stone tells BoingBoing that recreations can be custom-ordered. For the armour stilettoes, expect a wait of 6-10 weeks for production time, and a price tag in the $3,000-5,000 range.

See also this incredible "posture collar" by famed armorer by Ugo Serrano, worn by Jenna Jameson in "Janine loves Jenna." Because we all know how important posture is. More amazing images under "weapons," and this child has nothing to fear from the invading hordes of would-be robot overlords. Nothing at all.
