A/N: I got a tad bit carried away with this one >< I live for Jealous!Lafayette huhuhuhuhu. Most of my stories on Lafayette has a hint of a jealous/angry Frenchman. 

The night was dark, and the only source of light was the streelights that stood on the side of the streets. It barely luminated the streets, but it was enough. You made your way to the local bar, on your way to meet up with your couter, Gilbert. Unknowingy, you smiled at the thought of him. Your favourite, and perhaps everyone’s favourite Frenchman, the man who has captured your heart.  


You were in the middle of turning to the source of the voice when a group of men in red coats whisked by you, knocking you to the ground. A surprised gasp escaped your lips as you stumbled, your ankle twisting in an awkward position. "AHH!” you yelled, hearing the crack in your ankle, and falling on the ground.   

“Miss! Are you alright?” a man kneeled beside you, a gloved arm on your upper arm. 

“I think I hurt my ankle,” you responded.

Today we patterned Camilla’s rerebraces (not pictured), vambraces and gauntlets (pictured here)! We used the cling wrap + tape method for the rerebraces and vambraces. The gauntlets were more complicated - they needed to have a flared trumpet shape and be narrow enough at the wrists to not look bulky. We initially built a frame out of crumpled aluminium foil, then slashed a long strip of paper, taping the slashed parts over one another to create a flare. This was combined with a cling wrap and tape piece around the wrist, so it tapered into a fitted piece. The plates on the back of the hand will be separate/articulated so that Jenn has a good range of motion. :) Nohr armour is ridiculous but I’m excited to work with Jenn on this. Spiky Bowser couters to follow!
