Larp Gear IX by kickfoot Larp Gear IX by kickfoot
Ok, to make things slightly new, im tossing up a photograph of someone else for a change, still a Larp related picture though, so im sticking to the old naming trend.

This is just an example of how i think Larp armour should look, and generally look, in sweden.
As i understand it, other places tend to have larg variations on what to use to represent Metal armour.

my personal opinion.. nothing represents metal like, you guessed it.. metal.

Model: Frida (A dear friend, also my brothers girlfriend, and an avid larper )
Photographer: Quest Leite
Dude who made the armour: Martin Merkel

looks gorgeous :) especialy how women like she looks in it and still the armor looks functional and protecting

i agree to idea that metal things should be metal but its usualy not cheap to get them

well thats why i stick to cloth and leather mostly :3

yeah, its to bad its a little on the expensive side.. working ( together with my brother ) my way towards 2 sets of armor, so far we'v only gotten about one... and we'v been working on it for a while now.

Nice gear, although I think, it would look better with some kind of helmet.

I agree, that metal armor is best represented by metal...maybe with the exception, that some things like certain fantasy armor types. An example would be warhammer chaos armor, which looks partially organic.
