Costumes

This page contains a selection of costumes or other items I have made.

 

Chainmail hauberk

20170421_101511

This was created over a period of 3 years using the pattern that can be found here (NOTE – For some reason the diagrams have been removed). I used aluminium rings with a 8.5mm inner diameter and 1.63mm wire in 4 -1 pattern of butted mail . Unlike T-shirt style patterns it features a yolk which allows the weave on the sleeves to follow that of the main body, giving more freedom of movement. Although I chose the design because I liked it.

Chainmail Coif

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The coif was constructed using the same aluminium rings as the hauberk. I can’t credit the original pattern article I used as it seems to have vanished, but this one is similar.

 

Plague doctor mask and hat

The hat was made from leatherette, while the mask was made from aluminium and riveted together.
