SCA Gorget 2009 vs 2012 by Epic-Leather SCA Gorget 2009 vs 2012 by Epic-Leather
So Im going to start fighting in the SCA again, but unfortunately my Armor kit was the first Leather project I ever attempted...so its a bit cumbersome and well...noobish. Im in the process of designing a new armor kit but in the mean time I needed a new Gorget to practice with as the original one is..well ineffective (as you can see). The black one is just a temporary Gorget I threw together out of scraps to hold me over until I get more Armor leather and Copper Rivets in. The blue stuff on the old one is camping foam for padding...although I now know it was overkill, the new kit will not include such bulky additions.

Crafted out of 16oz Veg Tan Leather, 5 oz Oiled leather and Rivets.

my gear is all shot to hell and I was wondering what you charge for comissions.

Ah yes I do take on commissions but it ultimately depends on what you wanted, the price varies depending on materials, time and complexity, send me a message and we can discuss it further. ^^

Thank you! One of the things my original one was missing was a flap to cover the gap in-between the neck and chest armor, I really didn't have much knowledge of armor construction and functionality at the time, so that problem is now resolved. ^_^

yeah I'm going to have to mod my armor. My guild is starting to do Adrian Empire, and all of our stuff is missing the padding.
