Hey, everyone. It's been a while since I posted any progress pics of my build. I finally got some work done on my armor. Since I have several bios, I'm going to have several interchangeable armor sets. For this one, I'm going with leather Japanese armor. It will be adjustable so I can also wear it to MN Ren Fest.
Well, enough chit chat. On to the progress pics!
Here's the main parts cut out.

The back side of the armor

I laced the breastplate to test how everything's going together.

Everything I have done so far.

It's still really rough, but it's coming together pretty good. Next step is doing the punches on the back half and getting the sides attached.

Yep. It's leather all right. The cording I'm using for the final lacing is silk/nylon. What's in there right now is leather cord just to test how everything's going together.

So, it's been a while since I posted anything, so here's a progress pic. Sorry more isn't done. I have very little free time, so I only get to spend a few hours every couple weeks working on stuff.

As you can see, it's going pretty good. The design I've been going off is from

I still have to attach the groin and thigh armor (Have them cut out and punched, but I haven't had time to attach them yet) as well as dye the leather. After, I plan on hardening it. The last part is going to be a little tricky, since a duct tape dummy won't support the weight of the wet leather... Still tryin ta figure that part out. Heh.
As always, feedback is always welcome!

Laters!

Here's a small update. Turns out I cut the leather wrong for the Kusazuri (The groin/upper leg armor), so I had to redo it. Here's the first of the new kusazuri cut and strung together. Keep in mind, all the leather will be dyed black before I'm finished, so the lacing will all be redone. This is just to test how it looks all put together.)

The edges still need to be touched up a bit, but over all, I like the look. As always, comments and ideas are more than welcome.
