Leather Duster v2 by Astanael Leather Duster v2 by Astanael
Improved version of my all-purpose leather Duster. Since I'm doing less and less LARPs in full armor, I needed a lighter outfit. As always, please forgive the bad taste shopped face.

Everything (xcept the sword) is hand made. The base is a vo-viet kimono, very straight and simple.
- buttons are sculpted from boxwood, a very nice material to carve. Smells very good and looks a lot like bones once oiled.
- sewed fur on the edges. Needs more.
- pauldrons comes from an old armor. Detachable.
- Not visible at first, but the elongated lower parts are sewed with flame-shaped patterns.
- many metal decorations here and there.
- arms are detachable.

The overall has a really Nordic look and is quite comfy.

R.I.P Robb Stark :'(

Honestly, I didn't watch the show or have read the book at that time.

I still haven't, but thanks to numerous spoilers around I am now aware of the events of the red wedding. I simply wanted to mask my face in a fun way. The character I was interpreting at the time I tried this outfit in game for the first time was indeed a werewolf, so it seems logical to put a wolf head.

So, sorry by no GoT references intended.

At First I thought that the wolf head was a helmet that you used for LARP... too bad it isn't as it would look awesome :llama:

As a matter of fact, it is one of my project to make such a werewolf mask.
But it's hard, because I want it to look real, not like some furry cartoon.

You could try something like this!
Astanael Jul 17, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Indeed !

Although I would rather be able to make theses :

Thanks for the reply ^^
It reminds me too much of what they did to poor Robb Stark. :(
Just Kidding. It looks awesome! :P

Thanks ^^

Another GoT reference I didn't get at first :/ I've just googled the events of the red wedding and learn the fate of the King in the North. Sad story. I didn't know.
Qui qui disait qu'il faisait pas des, je cite "pièces de maître"?

Bon j'avoue. Celle là me plait particulièrement.
Même si j'ai encore des traces de bic qui trainent ici et là et la doublure intérieur à faire.

Je me demande si je ne devrai pas ajouter des passants ?
