Why not be content with making it as realistic as possible? :)

That includes making it as bling as possible. Knights were the original Gangsters, and would often spend huge amounts on ridiculous additions to their armour. Completely gold plated armour was not unheard of.


I like it. Its good to see a well done agincourt era harness. Bling ideas: Make yourself a decent parade shield, and a tournament shield for fighting with. A crest is a must, and go overboard with it. Finally, show us the results.
Slowly realizing just how far is still to go.

I don't like you in the big great helm. Nothing wrong with it, i just don't think much of that style.
Also on the subject of style i'm not sure that that blue goes with your eyes. and that dagged look is sooooo.....

What are you useing at the moment to suspendthe legs ???
If you want a pukka arming doublet/ackaton i would suggest Debs of Padded Armour Company but they may have a waiting list.
Debs from AKA Jasons other half (sorry debs cant remember the company name...ive gone blank) also does fantastic arming soft kit.
There is also of course Jackie from cloaked and daggerd, She will be at Ludlow medieval market this weekend and i would say if you need one making soon then she is the girl to see, her work is as you would expect, superb.

Gotta say both Debs (PAC) and Jackie (CAD) are fantastic at what they do, Debs made my arming jack thats lasted nearly ten years, and i used that with only arms on, so its taken a beating in its time, and Jackie, well she makes me all my soft kit now days, and I can't recommend her highly enough!
