Here's the handmade elven warrior outfit I wore to HobbitCon 2013.
The scale mails were increeedibly time consuming, and completely robbed me of long elegant nails
Then again - an elven warrior wouldn't have time to get his/her hands manicured, so I guess it was a good thing!
This picture doesn't show of the pauldron I made, but I'll see if I can dig up a picture form another angle.
It's the thickest leather I've ever wrestled with, and what a work out it was!!
The pointy ears are made of gelatin, and I'll be posting pictures of that process as well.
I absolutely loved wearing this (I even liked how loud and HEAVY it was, hahaha!) .
It took me a couple of months of material hunting, learning things from scratch on my own, and the work itself.
But it was worth it!
Oh, and btw.. I made two sets of this whole outfit *rolls eyes*
