Groups

this will be a bit of a long one as anyone that follows me knows i have been tinkering with various sorts of vampire themed armour and equipment for a while.

i rolled out the latest version at the steam punk asylum event in lincon.
i got a lot of positive feed back and i even one a small prize for best leather working in the costume category some bits and piece's from tandy leather. - picture to follow soon

i also have gotten a slightly better camera

fair warning i will now go on about my costume.

starting with the trousers i plant to use a blue belt i made it needs a bit of work burnishing the sides some more maybe using neats foot oil on the back and adding some brass / copper alternating decorative elements.
i might need to reinforce the stitching in a on sowing machine
i got a humorous label i will - hand stitch carry on and pass amo - on right pocket
-i will use some left over blue material to fix bottom of trouser leg worn through i can probably can use my machine might take a little time but it will add a bit of detail to the pants.

for the gloves - i intend to add a loop of blue leather as a detail at the bottom to ease pulling on the gloves. maybe using some neats foot oil on the base of the glove to improve the flexibility - neaten them up and burnish the edges where i can - possibly adding a small brass detail to cuff plat also helping with the shape of the plate
on the left hand glove - possibly redye finger tips.

for the shirt i will add tie ups to the sleeves to keep them out of the way , stitch on will probably be by hand.

i purchased a brass cross i plan to dismantle it clean up the casting - then reassemble and possibly add some leather detail at the bottom.

the eye piece worked quite well - it may need a little cleaning up burnishing - I will probably add an extra leather infill piece close to the eye overlapping if possible. might get a scarf or a mask to add to the costume.

for the sabatons - the foot armour the strap got lose so i will add a strap loop as close as possible to the edge. - the lower section deformed a little so i will add a brass or copper reinforcement to the to lower section helping with the curve. the back of the sabatons are lacking a little detail on the back - i will probably add a slightly larger back plate - 2.5 inches mostly on the back of the heel. i might add neats foot oil burnish where possible.

greaves - the leg armour i might add a plate to the knee to keep the shape it did deform a few times against the curve. I will secure it with Chicago screws - I might make decorative piece. the top of the legs moved about a bit i might add a second strap to top section with loop on other side. the top strap also moved about a bit so i will add a second loop.
again i will give it a coat of neats foot oil and burnish with bee's wax where possible.

neck guard - the ends of the straps are a bit of a pain so i will shorten them by 8 or more notches - to make it a bit more comfortable i might add a base strap on the back section maybe nine inches. for the same detail i did on my hat i might use rivets and washers to fill a few dead area's i need to get some online first though - lots of neats foot oil - burnish where possible

i have a large water flask very useful got at a comicon a while ago i need to make new straps to clip it onto my belt. after i wash out.

with my hat i got 2 coins that look like medals i will probably drill and secure them to the hat in area's that lack detail. i might add a few random brass detail to the back leather band.
for the steam punk gadget i will add an extra clip for the device and some wiring secured to inside of the hat later i might hook it up to an led or some sort of light.
something else i will do is i plan to make a few sets of vamp fangs and add to the hat as detail in pairs,  white plastic might work i will try to make a couple of sets.

the gauntlets i have are too bulky i need to rebuild them from scratch less material less detail etc - 2 straps per piece - instead of three. 
i am thinking about compact gadgets - or just compact versions of the ones i originally made.

for the main jacket some light repairs are needed.
for the red seal i need to clean it up burnish add reinforcement too keep its  shape a small piece stitched on about 2/3 of way down on rear.
the belts need to be re burnished cleaned up a little.
the cape i need to add a second broken line of coins to enhance the edge make it look like armour.
on the shoulder guards pauldrons i need to  add side sections for guards about 2 inches matching color with neats foot oil to give it the shape i want. the strap holing it together i need to shorten strap by 3 notches as well as add backing to internal supports so that they dont move about as much. i plan to create a square section brass embellishment for the blue cross (also for cape). i might add brass rivets and washers around shoulder guard like my hat.
i need to repair the blue stitching at front check repair boxes - if needed.
possible i might  edge the jacket with the rivet washer combo like my hat
i might add a document pouch to easily get to info at a convention
on the arms i plan to add extra leather guard plates blue with brass strips to the arms next to the spikes maybe four and a half inch section.

foam swords i will color in the damaged area's black - dye over damage to sheaths - burnish if possible.

with the chest piece - the back section caught a little so i will round off the top and refinish. -
apply neats foot oil and burnish where accessible
the top straps came lose a few times so i plan to add a guide loop in a tan colour.
Also to help with the weight distribution i will add 3 inch by 6-8 inch straps to go on the shoulder to distribute some of the weight i may need to pad them a little.
i plan to extend the armour a little to cover a gap to make a 3rd front piece - about 3 inches lower brought in by 1 1/2 each side, and add a temp loop to the bandleader for the brass cross

as a longer term project i will begin a redesign of the bandoleer, some lighter leather - a couple of small thermite grenades a couple of large ones some - scaled down flash bangs
a few silver bullets - some stakes some throwing knifes - (prop throwing knife 2-3) some garlic grenades and fragmentation bomb like a cannonade hanging on a clip plus tesla and acid grenade.

for my other belts i need to extend the cross - possibly build a smaller cross and add 1-2 small flasks etc.

obviously this is a work in progress that will not be done any time soon
