Stars - you are a genius!
I already HAVE a heavy duty snap punch and all the snaps..... but I didn't even think of using them on the (many, many, oh so many) leather straps on the armour I'm currently working on.
I was going to buy a zillion buckles, but this is a much better idea. Quicker to suit up and take off too. I just need to make sure they are in the exact right place as there won't be any tightening room.... and they won't look quite as "fantasy armour" ish but they'll all be at the back anyway and mainly covered by his cape.
OP - sorry for taking your thread a little off track.... as you were
