I absolutely have to try and make this for myself. Great job.
Could you go over how you hang the "cape"?

Are the armor templates available here anywhere?? The 2nd Age Templates have disappeared from the net I think and so far, everyone who has made a set has apparently lost them. If anyone has them, please message me. THANKS!!
Will get those to you soon, I've got them around somewhere.

Do you have any dimensions for the individual plates on the chest piece?

looks really good mate
I don't. I'd recommend making 2 lames out of poster board using the full width and scale the rest of it to suit your body type. I'm a 42 inch chest and used all but 2 inches of my posterboard prototype.

This is so great. Thanks for the photos and an unexplored material find!! Keep up the great work on this.
Ok, here's the build so far. I've weathered the breastplate, giving it lots more texture.

And we are just about done fitting the skirt. It feels snug, especially since I've got a larger rump, but my wife seems to have cut it to accommodate my build. We still have yet to weather this piece and do the leather straps.

The sash will add a lot, tying the two halves together. so here's the project 'thus far.' I kind of feel like one of those roly-poly pill bugs in this...

Can I ask a stud question, this is made from floor linoleum? Is the piping just strips of cut linoleum, or some other material? Thank for any help!
 
WOW, super inspired by your work. Just started sizing the templates you provided and wrapping my head around how it all comes together. Once I get a few more pieces done I'll be starting a build thread. Eventual goal is Gil-Galad!
