Prior Helmut in Armor by vonmeer Prior Helmut in Armor by vonmeer
Me as "Prior Helmut" a 13th Century Templar. I'm in the SCA (Kingdom of Artemisia) and this is my kit. I'm not wearing my proper tights or hooded mantle as it was way to hot that day.

I'm wearing my del Tin broadsword on a handmade plaque belt of pewter plaques I cast from a soapstone mold I hand carved. The chainmail is about knee length and full sleeved.

My crosier I also hand carved and made of simple pine.

you can see my old pavilion behind me, and the Shire of Silverkeep banner to which I am the Seneschal.

You may be able to notice the small silver keeps on my belt.

Excellent SCA persona and costume! You really went all out. I love the staff and the chain mail. Awesome!

I have never been a member of the SCA, but my wife used to be. She still has quite a collection of swords and daggers. We do occasionally go to Renaissance Fairs. Here is my costume ->[link] Hah! Hope you like it. :D

Awesome kit. That belt is gorgeous. I attempted to make some pewter belt plaques based off the viking Varby finds in Sweden, didn't come out half as nice though.

Thank you, I get my soapstone from a native american indian guy in Canada who gave me a great deal when he heard what I was planning to do.

I like the medium hardness stone and used a simple 2 part mold with "Brittania" lead free pewter.

I'm going to be making my wife one soon, with the handmade pewter buckles I make.

Thank you again!

Cool. I need to try that method, I had carved wax and made a silicone mold over it. Worked wonderfully at picking up the details, unfortunately that meant it picked up every little oops I did.

Good luck on the next belt. (:

You look the part. I especially like the crosier design.
