Have you ever wondered how chain mail would feel against your skin on a cold winter’s day?
Duh. Who hasn’t?
Plenty of people haven’t. Particularly costume/character designers who think that chainmail is somewhere between latex and bodypaint in terms of thickness.
They’d probably get along with whoever wrote the quoted sentence and ended up in the slush pile.
Given how often skin tight chainmail has made me cringe at that very thought, I am still amazed someone actually though this was a great way to pitch a book to anyone, let alone a literary agent.
