leatherwork

This costume has so many little details that were really fun to work on! My litmus test for every material I chose was, “can I make it shinier?” Almost every fabric, pigment or thread in this thing reflects the light in some way. I might have an addiction.✨

Fun notes:

There are actual plates that are riveted into that leather.

Over 100 Rivets were used in the creation of the Stark armor.

Unlike most “Cat Armor” that you will see online. Ours provides full neck protection, gut protection, while maintaining Mobility.

Thus making this actual functional cat armor.

So if somebody sends you one of the pictures of cat armor that go around… reply with us. =^.^=

Leather tooling process:

I started by cutting my lines into the leather by hand with a swivel knife (upper left). With a beveling tool, I turned these cuts into one-sided ridges (upper right). I added some additional texture with a backgrounding tool, but kept it light since there is already so much else going on visually. Finally, wet molding the tooled pieces gives them their finished shape. They will be stitched together by hand after painting.
