This is a costume we made for (and thanks to) Infernum Productions www.dragonspropheteurope.com/e…. They were looking for cosplayers to make their designs come to life. We accepted their proposal and we worked very hard to achieve an accurate Darksteel Armor for them. We accepted this because we don't usually have the initiative to make medieval lilke armors, so we thought it was a very interesting project.
It's been our most difficult cosplay challenge to date because of the difficulty of the costume and also because we had a very close deadline. We made this costume in a month, we finished it at the end of april and we did the photo shoot in may with Jesús Clares facebook.com/jesusclares
We are eventually very happy with the result. We are glad they gave us the chance to make a beautiful full armor like this, which is something that isn't within our regular cosplay budget. Despite the hard work, we had a great time making it, we learnt a lot and we feel we got to improve ourselves
Photo taken at Lost Days 2011 - Victorian Ghosts, steampunk-themed event in Lublin, Poland. I forgot to ask about this persona, but it appears it is a steampunk clockwork vampire assassin. Or someone else. Great outfit if you ask me.

A German City Milita about 1480 AD. Dressed in a red Brigandine and Mail.
Armed with sword and buckler, This sword is a one edge short sword, called Falchion or Malchus. And its NOT Arabian! The buckler is a little steel shield, heavy but very well maneuverable, and also a attack weapon.
Sword and buckler fighting is, in a sense, more complex than that with the Longsword, demanding a greater degree of mobility and alertness for the changing strategic situations of combat.
It is also generally faster than the Longsword fight, with more situations that might go wrong, since both combatants were wielding two implements instead of one. It is indicative of the status of the intendet reader that sword-and-buckler techniques receive so little space as opposed to fighting in full Armour.
The sword and buckler method was used by people from all walks of life for sure, but was more common the nongentle classes of society.
