|Tolkien is my first love when it comes to literature, and I simply love the work that has gone into the films. I particularly enjoy making complex costume, and armour! |
In the past I have tended to produce "authentic" costumes for my LOTR projects, with involved making real steel armour ( with my BF)
I sort of grew out of that after the Elven armour, as much as I love the costume, it's a nightmare to put on and not very comfy to wear.
Although I'm not planning to make this with metal, I still plan to make as screen accurate as I possibly can, with a very small budget...that's where the fun is for me!

Hands hurt from cutting the rings...I fingers are superglued up...and it's going to cost nearly as much as a metal mail Hauberk! On a positive note, it's light, will require no WD40 and will never rust! So all in all a sound investment. I hope I'll be able to use this for other cosies too.
