Leather Scale War Skirt by Azmal Leather Scale War Skirt by Azmal
A black and silver war skirt made of leather hardened scales with metal pyramid studs on every last one. Each scale is individually hand molded and attached to the leather backing with a rivet. This piece is just part of a full set of armor I'm currently working on.

Heavy and very sturdy.

It can be worn with the split along the sides or in the middle as pictured.

Keep an eye out for the rest of the set that will be finished fairly soon.

Thanks for looking.

hah, shiny. The tediousness reminds me of this harness I made one time... lots of tiny triangles riveted together and each one had to be slicked all over >.<

Awesome. Scale armour either buggers me (old movies it looks corny and badly done) or enchants me when do right. This looks beautifu;. :thumbsup:

I must say that the studs ruin this one a bit for me.

A full suit of armour like that would be a work out of its own! Looks very cool, though.

yes definitely that too. I know your pain to some extent, having done some leatherwork myself, but seriously you've got some major dedication to your work and it shows :nod:
