Does anyone in our realm do leather working?

Bracers, gauntlets, and the like?

Does anyone know someone around here that does if none of our guys and gals do?

I don't know of anyone in the realm, but online, Tandy Leather Factory is a wonderful place to get lots of great inexpensive leather.

That doesn't help right now. I need a crafter. But, thank you. I'll bookmark it for future reference if I find a crafter.

Late, but better than never.

Do you make bracers?

Yes, bracers are actually real easy to make. Are you looking for something simple or something dressy?

Something simple and sturdy. Never seen anything otherwise. Dressy I'd suppose would be the ones Mordock/Heretic have wore with the dark green and brass/gold studs lining them. I'd want something simple, leather(?) and black most likely once I get my garb. Give me a quote for the bracers, shipping and handling?

I'll be able to afford them by the end of the month if you'd care to make them. =P

Do you do chestplates/breastplates or what have you that they would be classified under? Or the chainmail type. I saw the one that you're wearing in your profile pic, that Oddvar has now, etc. Though I did see the one Smithy made, too. Do you do that?

Then again, I'd ask if you did bodices, but I doubt you deal in feminine wares.

I'm pretty sure Kurn made those green leather bracer's and I know he made the armor that Herr Oddvar the terrible wears.

Awesome. I officially want to get armor from him.

(Not that I didn't want to before. But this adds to the impressed look scribbled on my face right now.)

Sorry to burst the bubble, I did not make those green bracers. Not even sure which ones your talking of. I designed but did not build the armor Oddvar wears. The one in my profile was actually the first suit I ever made.
That being said, I will have to look around for a tandy out here before I can give you a quote. It is possible that I could do a bodice (armor grade leather, I'm assuming). I would need your sizes before I could quote a price. Also, I would need you to measure the thickness of you arms, at the wrist and forearm where you want the bracer to stop, also the distance from your wrist to where the bracer stops on the forearm.

Ha ha. No bubbles bursted and I like your style and I trust you.

I will get my measurements from Kat this Saturday. And, yes, armor grade leather when it comes to the bodice.

Thank you.
