(at least I think it's awesome)
This is a close up shot of the scale armour (there's a full view in my gallery if anyone wants to take a look :)
Made from "large" aluminum scales from The Ring Lord, over about 8-10 hours a day for 3 days. It was a nice tedious project ^^ The red parts on the sides are leather, I still need to punch the holes for the lacing on the side but for today, I'm done with this thing.
As the title says, both the front and back panels together weigh about 9 pounds. The shoulder straps are only an inch wide, so I need to add something a wider and probably padded. I only wore it for about 15 minutes while I tried on all the costume pieces and my shoulders already hurt :/
I'm also working on the dagger and possibly the quiver and bow will be next; pictures of those hopefully soon!
