Great looking Arthur, the armour looks really realistic, very clever.

Thank you both!

The armour was made and shaped from metal and riveted onto leather belts then engraved by hand. Great for reenactment and running around castles- not so good for hot convention halls. XD

Thanks, Tracy! I love having a project in the works. :] I guess I comment around a lot so people come back to have a look that way? XD I'm working on a Hulkling Young Avengers costume at the moment, but so far I'm not sure what version because I'm still gathering materials together and making patterns. Updates will be put on here though. :)
