The reproduction Greenwich armor of Chris Gilman, made by Robert MacPherson and Jeff Wasson, blued and gilt in 24 karat gold by Gilman himself. It is largely based on the Buckhurt armor from the Wallace Collection.
Additionally, he provided this lovely graphic of the process of making a piece, from rough form to finished product.

Experiance given form. Both of these represent growth. I'm getting better at working with silver leaf. And the other thread came out perfect thanks to a pair of helping hands.
Sometimes growth is learning to accept help. Humans are made to work together and help each other. Solidarity will get you far.

On Armor
The form of armor is intrinsically tied to the form of the human. This is obvious on an intellectual level, however the fact that armor is inherently tied to the person inside is something that, instinctively, can be difficult to fully grasp.
Most frequently when we view armor, it is in sterile cases behind layers of glass,

or through the safety of our screens from hundreds of miles away.

The piece is no more than a statue, a work of artistry to be admired before passing on.
I think, however, that the path to understanding armor must therefore include seeing it in action.
It is for this reason that, as I acquire new reproduction pieces for my own collection, rather than simply sharing images with you all, I video myself wearing the piece. It helps to provide the sense of motion and the sense of humanity thay so many of us find difficult to see.
In the continuing effort to bridge this gap between the intellectual and the visceral, I will now provide a video of the master armorer Albert Collins wearing his late 16th century armor, a part of his aptly named "Masterpiece Project.
It is difficult to overstate the quality of Collins's work. The seamless fit to his own body and the effortless, natural, near silent motion of the armor are simply breathtaking.
From here, I will allow the work to speak for itself.

Bam, it’s me. lol. Finally have pics of me in my Ranger kit, after working on it for 11 months. So much handstitching, so much of it in leather, the arrow making, etc. Still need a bow/longsword/seax knife, still need my camping backpack and the medieval camping supplies, but I have enough of a kit now to wear it out places hiking and to Ren Faires and the like. So yeah, first pic of me as a ranger. :)

1910 en la ciudad de Terrassa (Barcelona).
Hace unos meses, se celebró la feria Modernista de Terrasa. Una nueva oportunidad para participar con el grupo de recreación Nautirus. Repetia mi conjunto de blusa y falda pero esta vez con un parasol que llevaba varios años esperando ser usado. Me encanta!
