  1. Thank you. The Rogue One DeathTrooper was the plan among others yes. The 501 forum is on one of my tabs, so thank you for that indeed. There are other Imperial costumes in interest as well, but to start of it´s gonna be the DT as it feels now =)
  2. Thank you for this =)
  3. Oh i am sure you did a fantastic job anyways However, i would be happy to help in any way i can in any further craft, and do post what you made. Love too see other crafters work. I will be sure to post tips as well
  4. As a leathercrafter, you never know what you will create since all customers have their different orders, wants and needs. I recently closed my shop due to construction work in the store area, so nowadays it´s crafting in the home instead and on a smaller scale. However, anything is possible still and here are a few examples of previous creations. I also create jewelry in silver, bronze, titanium, pearls, bones etc and specifically and very often, the Norse often seen Kingslink worn a lot by Viking reenactors. A note for the leather: All leather and skin used in the crafts are always from a Vegetable tanned source. No chrome products is, will or have ever been used and that is a very high importance for me. I only use Vegetable tanned materials, everything is hand crafted from the ground up and hand stitched, colored, engraved and made worn. So... as said...some mixed items coming. Starting with a hello from me at Birka 2018 A custom commission for a fantasy larp. Customer wanted a very specific setup with a light battle-worn patina and a crest their group uses. The armor is a two item setup with the Chest and Belt combination. The client had a Thors Hammer, but nothing else. We opted to make him a set of 925 Sterling silver Wolf´s heads clasping rings attached through a twisted silver bar that went through the hammer and held everything in place on the 65 cm long chain. The following picture is the same weave but on a thinner scale and in copper. All these rings where created by hand one at the time, then hand sawed and mounted. Some light engraving for a restaurant to put the customers check´s and credit cards in. And to close with, the old Cosplay pics from Gamex when we did a job for EA / Bioware for Dragon Age Inquisition. Here i used an old Chest armor etc i had at home and a bud´s sword , but we only had 14 days to make the stuff so, sometimes a shortcut is needed haha. Keyword to make it work when in a rush. Layers layers layers.
  5. Thank you all for the welcomes As for the me being a leathercrafter. If i can help in any way or if anyone has any questions about leather, types of leather, colors, durability, patina techniques etc, feel free to ask away in any way or form. I can post some crafts later on in the Non SW costume department.
  6. Hello all. I´m a new member here but that has been planning on coming around to it for years and years, but am still on step one. So here we go. I am 40 years old and up till recently had my own business, workshop and store as a leathercrafter. Had to close down due to rebuilding in my shop area, so at the moment i mostly gym and plan ahead for new work and the plans for 2019, for this summers Birka event and of course, to get my 501 setup and application approved. I met the 501 in Sweden Stockholm in 2014 i think it was on Gamex, or if it was the first ComicCon, and we where asked by a member if we where going to join after they found our cosplay gear to be of good standard and quality. We where there for EA and Bioware to Cosplay for Dragon Age Inquisition at the time. These guys we met where fantastic, very polite and an awesome crew. Always nice to pose with Vader and Stormtroopers and to chitchat a bit with Malgus. Anyways, i will be looking into getting onward with my plan, that is among other things to get a Death Trooper gear, and i am sure i will have a lot of questions and weird details to dig into with the help from you. I wish all had a Merry Yule and a Happy New Year, and thank you for taking the time to read my story. Best regards Johan / Grihm
