Since her introduction in the last 50s, Barbie has found employment in practically every job industry from the arts and education to science, engineering, and military. She was also presidential candidate. And now, thanks to Jim Rodda from the 3D printing community Zheng3, Barbie can be of service to the King of the Andals and the First Men.

For his project Faire Play, Rodda 3D-printed medieval armour for Barbie with wonderfully intricate vine and rose designs on the pauldrons, tassets, greaves, cuisses, parade shield, and on the total 40 pieces that make up the armour. Check Medieval Armour Barbie after the jump.

Rodda has also created a basic armour to wear for tournament practice and a more casual Athena Makeover Kit with fashionable winged boots.
