High Elf Gauntlet...WIP Update by Valimaa High Elf Gauntlet...WIP Update by Valimaa
Soooo...Update with first layer of paint(two more layers needed for the white)...which is rather messy...I actually painted the first layer of gold last night but I dont have a picture of that...and since Im bored at work I had to post something :D

-As you see I finished the construction of the gauntlets and put them together...i added a bracelet-ish plate to bring out the high elf-ness...At the moment I'm thinking about adding big "knuckledusters"...to make it look more...hmm...brutal oO'

-Futhermore...At the moment I'm working on a Tunic, a cape, arm armour, a gabeson...and some other stuff...and a week to finish it all before we leave for germany and the Conquest of Mythodea...its gonna be a blast :D

I don't know if you've played Runescape but this reminds me a lot of, or to seems reminiscent of, a kind of Armadyl style of armour. Very nice, intricate and ornate. And built quite light. It's extremely impressive.

As always amazing work even when it is not yet finished, hope every thing comes out exactly as you wish it to be,
and please do not forget to post a few pictures of the complete suit, and of it at Mythodea.
Have fun!!

heh...there actually a whole bunch of LARP equipment from "my" compagny in that trailer...which is funny because we didnt know anything about the movie XD

-And thanks ^^

Yes, bullying "is what thy needst" XD
Other wise might just pummel her, there is always someone "in need of pummeling"
lalz XD
That movie will surely rock and the funny thing is that it will be not only a comedy as well as a horror movie that might be interesting ^^.
Any who, I like your costume allot and hope to see it complete before your quest and hope also that you win all manner of possible competition you participate in and be careful with all that "lighting bolt, lighting bolt, lighting bolt" :D

(I just can't help myself)

Once again, I am in awe of your design and craftsmanship! Clever how you used no rivets for this.

===taking notes===

thank you ^^

-Yeah I dont really like rivets for anything else than decoration so I try to avoid them...I dont really know why. I think that it was because everyone used an xcessive amount of rivets back when I started Oo
-On the High Elf armour I dont really like the stitching either...but its hard to hide it all ><

I found rivets to be unreliable at times. I've had a few pop on me. I'm starting to lean more toward stitching myself.

:iconvalimaa:
Valimaa Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2011
yeah...And they usually pop when you really need them not to ><'

-well when I started doing leather stuff I was totally refusing to use rivets...now I'm more like practicing(and not quite always succeeding :D) to use the joining method thats best suited for the job...be it sticthing, glueing, lacing or rivets(even though I dont like them)...all of them have their uses :)
