I walked in the Las Vegas Aid for Aids fo Nevada walk this last Sunday to show that even pirates support this worthy cause.
Putting on my garb I decided that I did not have enough accessories and my arms were a little bare (not enough tattoos yet).
So I decided to make some bracers for my forearms.
Here are the finished products.
I took some heavy leather 10oz and carved the skill and mermaid into the leather and then wet formed them to the shape I needed with the help of some two liter bottles of soda.
Here is a close up of the mermaid.
And here is the skull
Here is some more pictures of the finished pieces.
I am very happy with the way the red turned out with the mermaid. I think it make her stand out.
I think my favorite thing about the skill is the eyebrow.
Finally here are a couple pics of the walk itself.
The first is to get an idea on the small portion of walkers out that day.
The second is me (the Finished product) with one of my new friends. She was with Team Wine-Os
With them on I felt kind of like a superhero... Or maybe a supervillain. I cannot fight my pirate nature.
