10th April 2010: Maille 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.

Yeah I'm hoping to have my 3rd age elf done by then too not even started buying stuff yet....oops
Wyrdsister - 11th March 2011
I think I have pretty much all I need to make this, I have the fabric, the maille rings ( might need some more!) the thermoplastic for the armour, I just need the will to put it all together! We can do it Sam!!

I'm making mine from craft foam which I've never done before so this could be interesting. I have so many things to make this year its driving me nuts. Need to get more organised me thinks.
Wyrdsister - 11th March 2011
Likewise! And I've taken on a commission as well!I must be mad :p I really need to get my Elven armour fixed up as well! Much work to do ! I think I still have patterns etc from my Elven armour, and I have spent 8 months making it, so If you need help, tell me, cause I'm pretty sure I'll be able to help!

Thanks hun well I got the templates from JediElfQueens site and I found one of the links off there that shows you how to do the craft foam but it only really shows you how to do the smaller pieces so not sure how well its gonna work for the hip and chest armour. I'm sure I'll work it out atleast I have a dressmakers dummy now to help keep it all together. Just need to stop using it as a coat rack first lol.
