Perfect to give a refined, elegant and yet aggressive look to your costumes!
All the pieces you see here are lasercut and designed by me. Each of these required a very long time of testing, designing, making mock-ups, remaking, finding the right type of material. The whole process to create what you see here required almost one year and a half. And just cutting one set can require a whole afternoon, without counting the designing, testing, cleaning up, packing time.
They come in one size, which is the one you see in the image where they are gold and silver, where the reinforcement layer didn’t give the more complete coverage of the silver and gold ones. The ones with the red velvet reinforcement layer were a smaller prototype.
This version does NOT feature the engravings you see in the prototypes. By purchasing this listing you will get the smooth version.
When designing these, I wanted to make them as kits from the start. This means you get the cleaned laser cut pieces, unpainted, without grommets, beads, laces, ribbons and ties. Why? Well, because I am a small business owner, and I can’t stock a dozen belts of one color, a dozen of an other, make a special color for one customer, get seven different types of lacing cords and ribbons and so on. The possibilities to style these in different ways are virtually endless. Which is part of the beauty of these accessories!
So you will need to get some supplies and finish the pieces once you get them. This allows me to keep prices as low as possible and you to get the finish you want for your very own costume. These are a tool for your creativity! You can add beads, crystals, chains, studs, you can use plenty of different painting techniques…have fun!
In this case the pauldrons pair was primed and painted. By purchasing this listing, you will receive one layer only, in transparent color, the original color of the plastic material.
When receiving the item, you’ll get access to a specific Facebook group with all the tutorials and instructions on how to transform the piece you will receive in what you envisioned!
You will need some studs and tapes to complete these pieces.
NOT REAL FUNCTIONAL ARMOR
You’re already dreaming of wearing these, right?
Before you start imagining your costume, I would like to clarify a couple of things.
The cut is inspired by historical armors. However the delicate cutouts, the lace-thin parts make the pieces delicate and not suitable for fighting.
These are suitable for photography and non-fighting LARPs.
It’s not mandatory. It’s a plain layer with lacing holes and no cut or engraved design, that is stronger. You can leave it transparent or line it with contrasting fabric, to create a more dramatic effect.
in these photos you can see examples of reinforcement layers painted in silver and covered in red silk velvet. If you don’t purchase the extra layer, you get the engraved frame
