Looking good, Duke. Terrific job! Are you keeping the patterns you used, by chance? That'd be a great opportunity to upload them.
Considering your piece shots are all made of leather.... I believe that makes yours cooler.That's okay Sean Anwalt. For future reference the male Nightingale was only on his DeviantArt page. Or I can send them to you if you'd like.
I did make these templates today for the hood leather and leather mask, all by myself.

My single piece shots are definitely not as cool as PaiganBoi 's monster hunter progress shots, but I'm happy with the work that I've been putting into it and I think it will pay off once it's all together. Here's what I have sewn so far:

Pliers, band aids and rubber gloves. But I don't have much finger strength to begin with so it's the actual finger muscles that are getting strained holding the leather in place for hammering, flipping the leather back and forth as I thread and of course threading itself.Are you using anything like a pair of pliers to help push the needle through? It might save you hands/fingers from punishment.
Maybe it'll be another snow day and you can put another 10 hours in!Yes Dirtdives I have the correct tools.
I put in another 10 hours today, nothing really picture worthy, but I'm reeeeealy close to having the main part of the armor all done.
I don't know why I do this to myself, but I bought leather edge dye and am proceeding to pretty up all the edges. Once it dries you can barely tell it did anything. Lol. Two coats and it does help make the edge more consistent.

I should have a really good update tomorrow night.
No, man! It's Daedric! Make it out of the dyed leathery skin of your enemies!I can just cut the whole thing out of one big cardboard, then wrap that in fabric.
While definitely a normal concern, this guy wears coats in the house during summer and complains when the window gets open. I'm not worried about the leather, but yeah adding an extra blanket on top of his head may not be a good idea.No, man! It's Daedric! Make it out of the dyed leathery skin of your enemies!
You do what you want for the Cape, but I would recommend not using wool. Poor nightingale is going to be wrapped in a leather air- conditioning-proof suit. An extra layer of wool is going to suck noodles for heat.
