Elf Armor set - no plastic etc by Lathron Elf Armor set - no plastic etc by Lathron
This is my version of the old elven armor, that was shortly seen in the prologue of the Fellowship of the Ring. Actually, only the curass and the hipguard are the same lamellar structure as in the movie. The pauldrons (shoulderguard) are my own desing, slightly roman stylish. And the helmet is also from my pencil and "workshop".

The armor is made from 0,8mm brass plate, it is hand made by coldforging. Almost all the edges are rolled inside, giving it a stiff structure. The leatherparts are vegetabletanned 2mm cowleather, cloak is wool and the belt is silk.

It is fully functional and doesn't restrict much. Well, at least i'm able to do various athletic exercises with it on. Fencing with a longsword isn't any harder that without this, since this supports spine like a corset. Once I get a suitable photographer, I'll arrange pics of me inside this tincan.

Nice and seems to be 'working' too. :)
What kind of metal sheets did you use?

It sure is functional. I've tried it in Fiore longsword training (even though we usually don't use anything but historical or modern gymnastics gear), and it doesn't restrict movement too much, cause of the lamellar structure. I can even do a somersault with it on. I used 0,8mm brass sheet.

It is very elegant and looks strong. I'd love to see some pics of you using it!

I especially like the helm design. Do you have a picture of it as a whole?
