The walkthrough video and template were very easy to follow along with and the end result was way better than I had expected having never worked with leather before. Ignore my rivet work I'm still very green haha.

The pattern for the helmet worked very well at full scale I did not have any adjustments whatsoever.

I made my helmet from eva foam and worbla. It's really sturdy and after adding some foam strips on

the inside it's comfy as well. Overall a really satisfying and cool-looking build!

How should I choose?

When deciding between bundles and buying separately, there is no right or wrong answer; but there are a few things that may help you decide. The general recommendation is to go for a bundle, unless you just want to test out one or two patterns to start out, or if you want to mix and match components across multiple themes. 

Benefits For Bundles

  • Save with incredible discounts!
  • Get new bonus content as it is added to the theme!
  • Great for students ready to make a full or partial suit!
  • Get the best value from the complete video series where each tutorial teaches new tips and techniques.

Benefits For Buying Separately

  • Lower up front cost!
  • Pick just the parts you want!
  • Great for students just looking to try one or two pieces!
  • Mix and match components from multiple themes.

Not sure where to begin?

The Fantasy Armor series has all the components you need to craft a head to toe suit of leather armor with complete advanced video tutorials that are designed like a digital apprenticeship crash course for both leather crafting and armor crafting.  The video tutorials for each component breaks down the daunting task of creating an entire suit into a beginner friendly journey.  The bundle also has bonus content available coming soon as well!

This series also includes a bonus style so you can easily craft a smoother more LARP friendly variant.  And the video tutorials will teach you many crafting techniques you can use to augment your crafting skills and to truly make it your own.

Our Recommendation: Start with our Fantasy Armor bundle to learn the broad strokes of leatherworking and armor crafting.
