#this is so badass
I haven’t posted progress in a million years. The chain suit is finished. All I have left is finishing the leather and casting the elf ears.
You did Merrill’s full-body chain?! It looks amazing, how did you do it? It must have taken SO much time and work! Err, I should ask, is it ok to reblog this? I just wanted my followers to see it.
Thanks:D Rebloging is fine. Your followers can also see my bathroom:D
It’s taken about 2 years. There are 20,000 aluminum rings (I think it was 16 gauge but I don’t remember.) The instructions for making the sleeves and making it fitted come from here http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm I also used the pants pattern from the Armor Archive. http://www.armourarchive.org/essays/book__practical_chainmail/practical_chainmail.shtml
I am reblogging this version too so my followers can see it and spread it like wild fire, this took two years of sticking to it and pure dedication
I have literally never seen something more badass, I’m like in cosplay tears over it and I remember you starting this forever ago and I remember liking it back then too. It is amazing to see and I hope I get to see pictures of the final product.
Seriously well done. Oh my frick.

"Say what you want out loud. Allow yourself to be vulnerable and put your goal, wish, ambition out there. It’s scarier than it sounds, laying it out there. Because as soon as you say it, it might not happen and then there is a fear that someone will know you failed.
But I think failure is equally important to the success story. We learn by doing; when you are not messing up, it’s probably because you’re not learning and therefore, not trying anything new."
