Full support. This idea is awesome and should be added.
Another thing I've always wanted to have be able to wear armor and hold items is endermen. Maybe you could add something about endermen to the thread? I know it is about slimes, but maybe you could change it so it is about all the mobs you think should be able to wear armor and hold items.
I just scrolled down to the Pumpkins and Skulls section...
I am scared.
How can they be scary ? IF this was implemented , I would keep a small slime ( they deal no damage ) in my house as a cute little cube pet made of a pumpkin , and IF they allowed using any block for it , I would keep a slime with the slime block texture
Being a nerd is nothing to be ashamed of. Nerds rule the world! Who invented the internet? Nerds. Who created personal computers and smart phones? Nerds. Who made every video game you've ever played and ever will? Still nerds. Who sent probes to distant planets? Nerds, nerds and more nerds! I'm a nerd and I'm proud.
