Armouring is a funny thing.  If I answer "yes" or "no" to making armour I would feel less than honest.  No matter what you buy for SCA fighting you will end up doing more rigging and maintenance than than some people will do to a car in 10 years.  It is easier for me to make armour for someone else than fit it to myself. 

I am mostly focused on the fighting (and looking good) part rather than the armouring part of the hobby.  There are some good full time armourers out there.  You might want to check out:  http://armourarchive.org/

What Would You Do?

Let's say you're a freshman in high school. On your first day, you meet up with your counselor for the first time with some other kids with the same counselor. You do some ice breakers and you learn a little bit about each other. Suddenly, you notice a Nebraska Cornhuskers lanyard that your counselor is wearing and since you are a complete idiot and from Colorado, you strongly condemn the Nebraska team (and it is warranted because, many Nebraska fans are extremely annoying, and because you are…See More
