First of all, it is not technically finished....I still have to add shoulder armor that will connect the back and chest plates.
I made this armor for SCA (Society of Creative Anachronism) combat. [Think Fight Club, but with armor].
I made it out of HPDE, which is a very durable type of plastic.
While it is not as period accurate as steel or leather, it has many advantages as hidden armour.
EDIT: Whew! It has been a long time since I posted this! I gained 20+ pounds, married the photographer, and cut my hair. Anyways, here is what the armour looks like hidden

The riveting work looks great.  You did a great job fitting it to yourself.  Can't wait to see your finished kit!  What kingdom are you with?

Ah! Thank you! I actually had a leather cuirass similar to this, but wanted better protection. I am of the Shire of Vogleburg, Kingdom of Gleann Abhann. And you?

Hehe the Toki bit made me laugh, I must admit! Looks good thus far...have you checked out the clothing/costumes thread? That may also work for you.

Great job! That looks very well done and definitely like it'll hold up in "battle". Also, your man is quite a looker, you lucky gal Wink I think my fiance would look great in garb, but he's not into that kind of stuff. I'll settle for a kilt though Wink
