Soul Revolver Ranger Coat

This section is for reviews of stuff that is commonly available, or from a vendor that has more to get. New sword from Albion, or Windlass? Great. Leather work or cloak from a vendor or another board member who has hung out her shingle? Excellent. Discussion of the finer points of the arrows you just made. Not so much. Put that it in the Weapons & Armor Section.

I'm looking forward to seeing that :P


You're not the only one, Iodo; Michael has some fantastical leathercrafting skills. His new jerkin project is phenomenal, and I'm dying of rapt anticipation to see what he does with the new jacket. :P

Thanks so much for sharing those photos Manveruon!! :) That is, by far, the best Duster recreation that I have seen! The level of detail in your entire costume is absolutely incredible!

I have no experience with this type of work so I had actually already gone ahead and placed my order with Volto-Nero! So we will see how that one turns out (I'll be sure to share photos)!

Looking forward to seeing your next version of it too!! :P

Thanks again for sharing!!

Thank you so much! You are far too kind! It’s going to take me a while to get to it, but when I do I will of course post about it here :D

Thanks a million! I’m quite proud of how it turned out!

And I think overall that you really can’t go wrong with the Volto-Nero coat. They do some really beautiful work, and as far as I’ve seen, theirs really is the closest thing on the market to the screen-used costume piece (not to mention probably one of the highest quality pieces commercially available in terms of workmanship). Although, to be fair, I haven’t ever know anyone who actually owned one of their pieces, so I really hope when you get it that you will write up a detailed review of it!
