This is my favorite costume from the LOTR trilogy. I've always liked this costume
since i saw the fellowship at the cinema. So i've finally decided to give it a
go, hopefully it'll turn out ok. I plan on getting the UC elven warrior items,
the sword might be a problem in the UK but the helmet and shield shouldn't be too hard to
get (just expensive) I plan on making the armour from 1 -1.5mm plasticard with
rubber edge trim for the beaded effect on the edges and leather. I know you can get a bead
roller to do the same job but i don't want to spend £100+ just to use it once.



On to the pics, i only started this yesterday and have pretty much got my
chest and bicep templates done. I ran out of card so i'll try and get the
hip/thigh armour and the bracers done this week. So far this is just card
and brass split pins to hold it together.

Hey Mike,

I have seen that site before, i didn't know that was some of your work
though. Awesome stuff, i just hope mine turns out half as good as yours !

Speaking of help (o; i am having a bit of trouble with the bracers. You
wouldn't happen to have any templates that you'd like to share ?:rolleyes

Wow great work so far. 2nd age elven warriors are indeed the coolest of the trilogy
Thanx mothmonty, Elven warriors rule :lol:cheers

A little update, i haven't had much time to work on this. so i'm not as far
along as i would like. I worked on the hip/thigh armour a bit today.
It still needs a bit of work but the rough shape coming along (again this is
just card and split pins) I also reworked the chest templates a bit, so it
doesn't look so much like a tube.

Hip/Thigh armour:




Reworked chest with a sample of the rubber edge trim that i plan on using
for the bead detail:

I have a couple of questions for you about your armor.
I see you used a bead roller for the edge details.
What size step die did you use ? also what thickness of
material ?

I was thinking 1-1.5mm polypropylene sheet ?

I'm thinking it might be too much of a pain gluing rubber
on the edges, especially the smaller pieces with the tight
curves!

Space it's goin' good! Hopefully we can get a group together this year and troop a bit. It'd be nice especially with all the helmet orders have that have to come be. I need to see about getting bigger shin guards as the ones I'd used were childrens, but other than that, all is good :0)

HMS-WOW! that is some incredible work and they looked lovely! Thanks for posting that link. :thumbsup
