Someone requested some more information on this piece so:
This was made in mid-late 2005 and sold at the Texas Ren Fest. And this was the first harness of armor in which I did per my own design. (Before I had watched & helped my friend William make a suit for a customer in Arizona and picked up what I could from that)
The leather used was 10-12oz and was wetmolded from flat leather to the curves you see and most of the armor has two bands of border tooling. I actually made the helmet first, and it was my first helmet and I managed to do it without any guidance or ever seeing a helmet being made. The mask actually snaps off.
All the studs you see each have 2 prongs, and you must stab the leather with an exacto knife or some similar knife twice each time for the prongs to go through and then you must bend them over so it took a while. Later on though I got a hand press which did it for me which made life easier.
Any other questions just ask.
