Shoulder guard by Lynfir Shoulder guard by Lynfir
So as I was without any new projects lately, I decided to start on a new armor which is likely to be worn at Conquest of Mythodea this year. This is the first part of it anyhow. :)
Going to fasten it to the rest of the thing in due time.

This gear looks great I would like commission some similar Armor could you provide a idea of cost? Also where do you guys source your linen shirts all the stockists in the UK sell rubbish from china which falls apart and doesn't quite look right.

This really has what is you 'look' to you pieces, it doesn't feel based around or stuck on some one else's notion of armour.
It looks organic and original.

Thank you very much. :thanks: That's a really nice compliment. :)
I'm very glad it gives that feel to it! It's part of the intention.

wow. this particular piece of the armor made me think a little bit about it. We have already used some other pics from your gallery for inspiration and my clan didn't like it that much saying mostly "good quilted armor protects better, its cheaper, easier to make and looks well too".
But then i saw this shoulder guard and was stunned. This really looks like armor and its amazing.
We prefer "hardcore battles" (don't know any better expression) so i'm thinking of adding some bones and metal sheets for even better look and protection, needlework would be rather my style, but the idea is perfect, thank you.
Mythodea waits for some two years of preparations and training for us to participate, but then i'd love to see this in the real world...
How thick is the leather? I now hesitate how many layers is enough...

Thanks for the cool compliment! :) I'm glad I can be of inspiration to you.
I also prefer armor that has a good semi-solid feel to it.
I think it's also not a necessity for everything to be completely made from leather, you could compromise by using some parts made from leather.
When fighting on Mythodea I prefer good fights too instead of playing foam tag. But I don't cover myself in endless layers of armor to do that. (Besides, it tends to be waaaay too hot for that on Conquest)
This paticular piece varies quite a lot in thickness. The leather itself is about 2 to 3 mm thick and varies from being two layers to 3 or 4. But the laces add up to the thickness quite a lot aswell.
This is also why I havn't used this piece on a scenario yet, it doesn't move too well. But I'm thinking about a solution for that. :)

Thank you. :) The design, I think, turned out quite satisfying indeed.
Functional use needs some work as of yet, though.

Thank you very much. It is indeed a lot of work, but worth the trouble in my opinion.
I think I will post some work in progress pictures of the top piece of the armor later this evening.
Which camp are you joining at Conquest?

xD Richtig.
Ik heb eerst alle gaatjes geknipt voordat ik de veters er doorheen heb geregen. Probeer je maar eens een voorstelling te maken van hoe die plaatjes er uit hebben gezien.

Trouwens, heb je m'n laatste mail nog gelezen? Enne...heb je nog leer over waar je m'n hoed van hebt gemaakt? Enne...nouja, dat waren twee random vragen; nu ik toch je aandacht heb ;)

Welke laatste mail? Ik weet niet of je gisteren gemailt hebt want mijn internet doet het thuis niet. En op een of andere mannier kan ik nu niet op hotmail op school.
Als het over die meeting van je met fractie licht gaat, daar hebben we het op msn toch nog over gehad?
En ik heb nog wel wat zwart leer ja, maar dat is wel van een nieuwe huid.

En nouja, zo moeilijk is het toch niet om mijn aandacht te vatten? :)

Dat is waar ook. Ach, m'n geheugen is soms zo lek als een...een...zo'n ding met gaatjes ;)

Ik heb enkel wat restjes nodig; ik ga proberen de hoed verder te verstevigen, maar ik wil (natuurlijk) niet op de hoed zelf experimenteren :)

Klopt ook...Zie de opmerking over geheugen ;)
