Norse-Gael Armor 2 by Godred Norse-Gael Armor 2 by Godred
Another picture of me armor for the renascence fair in bristol Wisconsin.

I just wanted a barbaric look to the armor. At the drawing board I had no idea I would be using real skulls bones pelts furs teeth and claws.
The idea behind this armor, basically turned into dead things. save some metal, everything on the armor was alive at one point.
And save the dying and the cutting, this was fun as hell to make!
I, the Norse-Gael made it, hence "Norse-Gael armor"

Had a grate time at the renascence fair! Very nice people.

I felt it only appropriate to cut out the other folk in the picture. They where strangers and I'm not 100% on how they would take to having their picture up on the internet. :/
Just being courteous. But if ya wanted to see the full thing, just ask, haha. I'll sendy, just not posty.


PS
I'm still on the lookout for animal parts. The collecting and adding to the armor was so much fun that I dont plan on stopping. So any help would be great!

This is a very impressive piece. I'm curious to know if you stitched it all your self? And also, how ever you able to find all these animal bones?

I mainly riveted it all together. Once in a blue moon I'll lace things together. I live on the edge of a forest, so most of the boned come from there. actually, on this piece all of the bones come from there. On later work I bought bones from this exotic meats store. I keep thinking of hunting animals and using the fur and bones and making jerky out of the meat... but it gets increasingly more difficult to think about.

I absolutely love your work. I was wondering if you would do commission pieces or would maybe provide a pattern as to how you made these? My boyfriend loves everything Nordic and Viking and I would really like to either make him something like this or purchase it.

I do commissions. But if you did want to make it yourself, its easy. Its just a matter of getting the tools, sizing, cutting, dying and riveting. My version of sizing is slapping poster paper on the chest and figuring out the general comfort. Im down with figuring out a pattern, or even coming up with a new pattern. I am pretty busy with school at the moment, so i would have to keep you posted for when i would be able to do a commissions. A pattern would take time too, but if you can fallow chicken scratch, I should be able to do that in between classes.

Which ever would be easiest for you is completely fine. Chicken scratch shouldn't be a problem, but how much would you charge for a commission piece as well?

Depends on the leather. I've made some things that had to be ridiculously priced because of the material. But I've also done things that I've been able to keep cheep because of the common material. Id really have to see what the sketch was before i made an estimate. Like what i have on in this picture is very unnecessarily pricey. Ive learned how to cut some corners since then. It cost me about $300+ and all summer to put together. I wouldn't even try to estimate the price of labor. :( it was my first try though. I'm down with chatting some armor over though. Kinda get an idea of where this project might be headed, give pointers and stuff.

Ok I'mmm (oh woah I think I just broke my "M" button lol) I'm down with a chat over it all. I could even draw up some sketches maybe that you could base it off of and add that fair all yours seems to have. (Mine tend to look a little gothic rather than Nordic.) That is if we can agree on a price and you are willing to do it. :)

Sounds like a plan! you can sketch up a foundation idea, I'll Norseman it up, we can back and forth until its perfect and then I'll figure out the pattern and where the price is at. Oh, i dont have any bones right now and with it being winter I'm not going to be able to harvest any from the forest. but I do know someone who will sell his.

I saw the band Therion several years back after their Visigoth-themed "Gothic Kabala" was released, and they wore stuff just like this. I loved it then and I love it here.

The armor is a really nice change from some of the cheesy and badly made armors around this site...I can only give you thumbs up and hope my own design will look as awesome :)

In the designing process I kept comfort well in mind. So the thing is extremely comfortable. The cod piece is a deer skull... though the skull on the left of its nose is a coyote skull :)
