Chain and Scale Maille

I thought I'd feature a creation I did not do today. The boy does a lot of crafting, including leatherwork, chain mail, and scale mail. He created a black-and-blue outfit for me out of chain maile and scale mail, including a corset, skirt, arm pieces, necklace, earrings, and headdress. Here it is in all of its glory!

The corset on this outfit is black-and-blue scale mail. The mail was made separately, then sewn onto the corset by hand.

The skirt is primarily chain mail with scale trim. The waist is part aluminum, part rubber mail, and includes small hooks to help it fit as well as possible.

The arm pieces are scale mail, and clasp together using a combination of rubber mail and hooks. They are lovely, but extremely difficult to get in and out of!

The headpiece, necklace, and earrings are exclusively chain and scale mail. I particularly love the fluid pattern he used on all three of these -- some of my favorite pieces!
