Re: Working On a New Jerkin

Thanks again folks! More updates forthcoming once I get the closure system sorted out. Then it’ll basically be finished! I'm slowly moving away from the ahistorical jerkin idea but I must admit the progress and skill shown in your jerkin have given me second thoughts. Well done! It looks grand! Yeah...

Re: Fantasy Style Pouch

Very nicely done. Manveruon has done a few pouches and things with that closure system, and has said nothing but good things about it...I expect you'll enjoy using this for years! Yeah, I must say I’m very fond of this closure style! It’s secure, doesn’t require any metal parts, and it’s relatively...

Re: Working On a New Jerkin

Slowly coming together! I’m almost finished with All the edge binding, and I’m also working on getting the reinforcement patches for the front ties figured out. I think I’ve settled on this shape, which was inspired by some of the Numenorean designs discussed in a previous thread on here, and which ...

Re: Working on a Bree-lander kit

Oh I LOVE that! It really feels like a cohesive cultural wardrobe! I find it kind of amazing how well the elements of 17th/18th Century fashion are blending in with the more Medieval/Renaissance influences. And I really like that sort of pillbox hat! I would almost want to pair it with some kind of ...

Re: Fantasy Style Pouch

OOOOH! Very nice! I agree with Elleth about the strap - I really like the decorative element. And I appreciate that the design allows for a compact shape while also offering plenty of storage space. I’ve been needing to make a new belt pouch for my kit for a while now and I may have to take a cue or...

Re: Taking photos while out

Oddly, this is something I was just thinking a bit about this morning! I’ve normally just carried my phone with me and pulled it out whenever I found a cool photo opportunity - but I’m starting to get a bit tired of that. For one, I am starting to tire of always pulling myself out of the experience ...

Re: Natural Leather Dye

Once again, great detail, thank you so much for sharing it all! Makes perfect sense. And no worries - I can absolutely use the templates and build-along you posted, it’s just difficult for me to dye anything that requires laying out in the sun because I don’t have any consistently sunny places to la...

Re: Natural Leather Dye

Fascinating discoveries! Thank you for the detailed info! Do you tend to dye things more before or after they are assembled? I suppose it probably depends on the project? At some point this summer I may have to hit you up for a pouch kit based on the most recent one you made. I’d love to make one li...

Keeping Watch

Okay, I’ve got a question that I keep meaning to ask but forgetting for whatever reason: When you camp, particularly with other people, do you keep a night watch? And if you do, what is your normal procedure? I unfortunately don’t get out to actually go camping overnight very often, and almost never...

Re: New Boots!

Very cool! I'm curious - did the slits lower down make much of a difference in letting in trail cruft? A little anecdote: after our pup chewed out the liners of my modern hiking boots, I just started using my barn muck boots for short woods walks. I was actually surprised how well they actually wor...

Re: New Boots!

Haha, yeah, I mean I kind of do too! I LOVE things that look all old and weathered and beat-up. I'll be holding onto the pictures of these for sure to use as reference for future endeavors in distressing costumes (which is one of my favorite things to do with cosplay, honestly). But yeah, for these ...

Re: Thorsbjerg trousers & kit

You didn't want the brown ones. (I've removed them as an option--too lightweight, pocket ghosts, and a bad match between the legs and seat pieces. But I do have a plan for them as a testbed for getting a better fitting Tberg. Stay tuned. The yellow kit I think would look really cool after a soak in...

Re: Thorsbjerg trousers & kit

Hmmmm... Good to know, thank you! I do think the brown ones would be nice for a summer kit... Although now I'm wondering if I should go for something a bit heavier than that in the fabric department, and maybe just hit you up for the pattern, heh.

Re: New Boots!

Resurrecting this post to share some very interesting (at least I think so) updates! I've decided to start a pretty serious re-work of my Ranger boots. These things have been through the wringer over the last six years or so. They have been worn in heat and in cold, dust and dirt, mud, rain, snow - ...
