A few examples
of high-quality re-creations of medieval armor. Much of this is created using historical techniques
(youtube,) by men
(slightly NSFW) who can only
be called masters.
But it ain't cheap
I've linked to the sites of only a few reenactment-grade armoring greats. There are many more, such as Ugo Serrano
(warning, bad myspace page) and Chris Gilman
, both of whom do work for movies.
The answers to all your armoring questions available at The Armour Archive
. [Note 1: The British "armour" is often used in the reenactment community to separate medieval "armour" from modern "armor" esp. in search engines.] [Note 2: Stay away from the armour archive off-topic forums if you value your faith in humanity.]
This post inspired by comments to this thread
which had me thinking "these people need to see some REAL armor."
