Toa Fraser’s upcoming Maori action epic The Dead Lands will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.
I can’t embed the trailer for this but please please watch this here it’s fucking incredible, i am blown away
Holy crap, that gave me CHILLS.
I haven’t posted progress in a million years. The chain suit is finished. All I have left is finishing the leather and casting the elf ears.
You did Merrill’s full-body chain?! It looks amazing, how did you do it? It must have taken SO much time and work! Err, I should ask, is it ok to reblog this? I just wanted my followers to see it.
Thanks:D Rebloging is fine. Your followers can also see my bathroom:D
It’s taken about 2 years. There are 20,000 aluminum rings (I think it was 16 gauge but I don’t remember.) The instructions for making the sleeves and making it fitted come from here http://homepage.ntlworld.com/trevor.barker/farisles/guilds/armour/mail.htm I also used the pants pattern from the Armor Archive. http://www.armourarchive.org/essays/book__practical_chainmail/practical_chainmail.shtml
I am reblogging this version too so my followers can see it and spread it like wild fire, this took two years of sticking to it and pure dedication
I have literally never seen something more badass, I’m like in cosplay tears over it and I remember you starting this forever ago and I remember liking it back then too. It is amazing to see and I hope I get to see pictures of the final product.
Seriously well done. Oh my frick.
Okay, when my husband made a chainmail coat for his Ulfric Stormcloak cosplay, that took like (at least) 70 hours of making the chain and weaving, so I can’t imagine how long this took, with all the fitting and?? You’re amazing! I can’t wait to see what the finished costume is going to look like!
the expression “i cant say that with a straight face” comes from the fact that straight people have no sense of humour and cant tell jokes
um can you not?are you straight because I’m sensing a lack of sense of humor
