I had planned on looking for fabric for this today, but ran out of time due to too much road construction in the city. Anyways, I did a lot of drawing for this in the past week. I think I figured out how to make the gauntlettes so they will be light and comfortable. I almost bought a belt for this costume @ Marshalls today. It was a really nice smooth curved med-dark brown leather. It was $11 though. ANd I will still have to find or make pouches and the ornament for the front. I will probably be kicking myself very soon. Maybe that belt was perfect.
