Leather Armor v4 by Astanael Leather Armor v4 by Astanael
This is the fourth version of my Larp Leather Armor.

Not much is visible to the eyes, but there is many improvements since the v3 :
- I now have a leather tunique underneath,
- the arms are fixed under the inner pauldrons,
- the fur descents are now fixed to the armor, levering the weigh on my hips,
- full legs protection,
- the outer pauldrons are fixed to the inner's one more closely to the neck,
- the helmet and the head protection inside have ear holes, which is essential to get the orders right,
- lost the amber stone of my right glove :(

The whole becomes a little heavy to wear., but really comfy and not too hot. Besides I can bend, sit, jump and run on short distances without problems.

To run on long distances, I need to work on my stamina.

How's the knee protection?

A little feeble I guess.

I wanted to make something light and ended with womething too soft and maleable. Googd looking but not very sable and sturdy.
It is one of my next move to rework that.

Amazing job on this armor set! Do you take custom armor projects/orders?
Astanael Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2014  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Many thanks ^^.
I do take commissions, but please keep in mind that :
- I'm not a pro, I'm only doing this for my pleasure,
- sending goods overseas is always a tricky affair, and halas I'm in europe at the moment :/
- I really want people to try before buying. Armor is a lot like clothing and need tight fitting and adjustement.

I know I'm putting the emphasis on the obstacles, but experience taught me a lot.
Feel free to message me your ideas and projects, I will tell you if it is feasible. ^^

Thank you again for getting back to me. Sorry it took so long for me to respond. I ended up working with someone else, but was thankful for your honesty regarding ordering or working with you. Hope to see some more cool armor sets from you! Thinking I may try my hand at leathersmithing :) Start small then try some more difficult items. Looks fun and relaxing to do on a rainy day haha

Ok, no problem.

By all means, plesae do try crafting. It is a very rewarding activity (although quite frustating sometimes)

This is spectacular. It really just needs a little bit of color variance to make it really pop, but the quality is spectacular. I really like the fur war skirt.

Thank you ^^

Fur always makes the trick, Covers nicely and give a realistic look. Fur is good.
Regarding the photo, I couldn't agree more with you, I prefer my previous photo over this one.
