Last 1:1 Medieval Armor Post for 2015 - Promise
The armor is on a display stand, tucked away in a corner of the living room. The haubergeon fits over a shirt since the arming jacket is too thick for it. This is actually the "look" I was shooting for. It's based on examples from the late-14th C. - particularly from the Churburg collection in Italy. For the record, I sprayed the aluminum mail haubergeon with a can of Testors Graphite Metallic - sort of a gunmetal color, to darken it.
