Boots done! The piping on the heels and top cuffs is actually chrome-free pigskin dyed (with Waterstains, naturally) to match the Huntington leather. That’s currently one of my proudest dye-matches yet.

All that’s left is the scabbard, which has to wait until the commissioned sword is forged. I may even redo the belt to match.

Next time: I’ll showcase the quiver.

Had to browse through my IG feed to find old WIP pictures, but here’s the quiver. I basically made a paper pattern, traced out the body, and cut the trim pieces off the pattern.

Dyed the pieces individually, glued the trim in place before punching holes and hand-stitching everything together, and made sure the green fabric bag was sewn to the quiver along the bottom edge.

There was some guesswork about where to position the shoulder strap, but it almost looks vertical in references. Prior to dyeing and assembly, you also want to fold the wet leather billet and hit it with a mallet to add the appropriate rippled texture.

The buckle is from Shapeways, and I’m very happy with it. My only qualm with the overall quiver is that my trim is more orange than gold, but it’s not impossible to change in the future.

I don’t have the orange or green-fletched arrows that the rangers of Ithilien use, but yellow is a safe placeholder, especially since arrows are wood, not synthetic.

And... that’s it. Comparing this final picture to the one from last year (see an earlier quarantine post), I can really see how the new boots really keep the overall color scheme from being too reddish. Now it’s simultaneously warm, but dull.

That’s really all until the sword completes the ensemble, so if anyone has any questions, I’ll always be happy to add more info. Thanks for following along!

I usually tend towards the Star Wars sections on here, but just browsed around a different section and I am so glad I did! I can’t wait to see the sword and scabbard with this. I am envious of your leather working skills.

excellent work!
