rattle-and-burn:

Finished the armor for my Maedhros cosplay!

This is the biggest and most ambitious leather working project I have ever done; and although it was done in two stages months apart, the design, drafting, cutting, tooling, dyeing, and assembly was all done in two days. When I get motivated, I get really motivated.

The tassets have a simple line gorged into them, but all the upper body pieces have a celtic knotwork pattern tooled into the edges.

The idea behind this is to draw inspiration from the armor in the LotR films, which I think is really the best part of the films, and dial it back several millennia as far as technology and armoring skills goes. If they have plate mail in the War of the Last Alliance, then the War of Wrath should in theory be the end of leather and chain and beginning of plate.

I presume that post-Thangorodrim Maedhros would favor his left and fight in a more dueling style; turning his body side face to the opponent - thus the heavy armor on one side of the body (rest of the arm armor not pictured due to armless mannequin). The right side will be wearing chain for practicality and I am making a shield for more heavy fighting.

Usually I get mad at my projects as soon as they’re finished, but this one I absolutely love.

don’t romanticize basic rights 
it’s not attractive that a man is a feminist 
it’s not sexy that a man finally realizes the prejudice against women and how stupidly oppressed women are 
it’s common sense

“He’s a Pirate” (Ultimate Mix)

A mix from the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies. 

If this doesn’t make you want to go sailing to the ends of the earth, or pilot an airship into the skies, then I hope you find your way back to that state of imaginative bliss some day.
