Unconventional Accessories For Self-Defense

With the right accessories, you can elevate any outfit from drab to fab with little to no effort. But these fashionable ornaments are more than just a style statement — they look like they could actually double as weapons. So skip those self-defense classes, and stock up on some of these menacing WMD’s — “Weapons Made for Decoration.”

These self-defense key chains shaped like cats are purr-fect for the feline enthusiast who’s not afraid to kick ass. Bring out your inner cat-woman with one of these babies.

They also come in a canine option.

This pointy brass knuckle ring is guaranteed to wound any assailant that tries to attack you. Just don’t go to bed with it on, you might gouge your eyes out.

These killer heels are perfect for the punk rock enthusiast who wants to look polished, yet badass. Sport these at your next Rancid concert and no one will mess with you in the mosh pit, unless they have a death wish.

What good are weapons if you don’t have armor? Sometimes the best offense is a good defense — the only problem is matching the armor with an outfit and not looking like an extra from Lord of the Rings.

This dazzling engagement ring is situated upside-down, making it the perfect unassuming weapon for any girl on the go. Just make sure not to cut your fiancé while wearing it, or else it really will be “till death do us part.”

A bracelet fit for the steampunk who’s also in a biker gang. We’re not quite sure what function the gears serve, besides a thrashing to the head or groin.

Whoever designed this spikey, Bowser-inspired bolero jacket probably spent a lot of time playing “Mario”… and getting bullied. Now who’s laughing?

These chained sneakers are not only comfortable, but also deadly. We can’t imagine a cuter way to break someone’s nose than by wearing these high-tops.

Designers sure love their spiky stilettos, but this is taking it to the next level. Though, we love the peep-toes because it adds an element of sweetness to an otherwise gritty-looking shoe.

You’ll never be late for a whooping when wearing this pointy watch. What time is it? Beat-down-o’clock.

This spiked bag is not only expensive, but also very inconvenient. Unless that is, you either enjoy receiving pain or giving out pain. If only you had this purse on hand when your boyfriend broke up with you.


Could you actually see yourself wearing any of these accessories?
