Not bad for a first try.

Thanks. One of the first attempts and "sculpting" leather other than the hoods/masks. Worked quite well and then started making the full size leather skulls. Next are larger more detailed pieces. Should be interesting.

these are awesome, just one question, where did you get the speed laces from?

I got those from Ohio Travel Bag. But I suggest you shop around because they are really high on price.

I hear ya. Been a real problem getting quality hardware over the last several years. Places like tandy leather factory sell nothing but crap so I have to search around for small operations that still carry quality. But most of it is still made in China. The EPA laws here in the states make it to expensive to manufacture. Same has happened to the leather industry in this country.

Can't wait to see the whole armor. Some skulls could be screaming to show suffering of enslaved souls.
Reminds me of Lucius the Eternal from Warhammer 40k (when he dies in combat he's ressurected and the soul of warrior who killed him becomes a part of his armor).

Thank you my friend. They did form fairly well, though I think I can improve on them quite a bit. Several things I did not consider prior to forming. And not so sure about the brass speed laces.

LOL...not sure what that is. But the theory ..at least in my strange mind, is that it takes one thousand souls to create the Armor of the dead, but they must be stolen and unwilling, giving the armor the strength, anger and determination of a thousand fighters in one man..or woman.
Down side is the person that wears the armor must keep his or her strength or the souls will take over his or her soul and drag them to the nearest Wal-Mart and there he or she will stay for all eternity. A fate worse than death.
