    Just finished up my shirt, going to start on my fiance's Mera next. Going to be making armor out of Warbla. Let me know what you guys think thus far.

    20150315_140954.jpg Started to work on the bracers, these will be the top/sides. I am going to make a hinged back plate to go all the way around my arm. Or at least that is the current plan.

    The bracers look great! What colors were you planning on using?

    Not 100% sure yet. I may go with a dark green and goldish interior. thinking of doing some scaling in the windows

    Scaling in the windows would be really cool.

    Very nice work. I built an almost identical scale shirt for my Aquaman cosplay. I appreciate that you did a separate shoulder piece as opposed to the standard "t-shirt" pattern.

    What are your plans for the sleeves, or are you going sleeveless?

    Yeah, I wanted the 45 degree angle on the shoulders and I had done something similar with a chainmail shirt I had made previously.

    I am planning on going sleeveless. I am going to make more armor as well. I am going to do a shoulder similar to the alternate costume in Injustice.

    I really like your trident, did you make it?

    I understand on the sleeves. I tried to have them at first and ended up scraping them due to movement issues. Instead I made sleeves out of bronze fabric and covered them in fishnets.

    I've thought about doing an Injustice build, but decided to focus on my steampunk version (profile picture).

    Thanks for the compliment! I made my trident out of PVC pipes and connectors. I'll be posting a pretty long build on everything today or tomorrow so you can see progress photos. :)

    Very nice scale maille, and I like your ideas for the bracers.

    Also -
    The fishnet-over-metallic method looks surprisingly good. I'll have to remember that.

    That looks amazing, I can't believe they look that good. Anybody planning a Thor costume should take note.

    Duuuuude that shirt is awesome. That's gonna be one sick costume when its done, nice job! You just link the individual pieces together; almost like chain mail?

    It is very similar to chainmail. The scales are all linked together with rings on the underside of the shirt. I decided to go with a split ring {overlaps like a key chain ring) do this shirt is never coming apart....lol the materials were bought off of theringlord.com

    Here is the start to the trident. Pretty rough still, needs quite a bit more smoothing and need to finish the side heads.

    The PVC was heat bent and superglued to each other. Used epoxy putty to round and secure joints and the attach the heads.

    Thank you! Yeah, we wanted to go for a more regal look. Thought a cape would be different and give a fuller look
