Albus Progress 2

Albus Progress 2 - Castlevania  - Albus
well, here are some updates on the leather progress... you can see it theoretically fits on our Albus (keep your fingers crossed it still does after xmas ;) and today I kept working on finishing the armholes and began oiling, dyeing and sealing the bottom parts. I'm very concerned about how this may or may not photograph, w/o flash the designs don't show well, with flash it's a shiny nightmare x.X We shall see....

Hummunahummanahummana---WOW! I-I'm at a loss for really good words. That is simply one of the best things I've seen on cos.com in a really long time. I'm very excited to see the finished product; you're amazing!

Wow! Impressive work!
I don't know much about leather working, so I was wondering what kind of leather you are starting with and then I assume you then are staining/dyeing in some way... (You don't have explain a lot about the process, I just find it very neat!) ^_^

I hope your photos will turn out well! It would be a shame to lose all that detail :\ (Maybe it'll be better in natural light?)

I bought a "double shoulder" in the thinnest leather I could still tool, since I wanted the vest to be a little more wearable and a little less armor like. After I tooled the designs in I dyed the pieces, and I'll be sewing them together soon. Glad you like it! if you have any other questions, feel free to PM me, but be warned, I'm still a leather newb ! If you have a leather store nearby they are usually happy to demonstrate on scraps so you can see what you're getting yourself into, lol.
