part 2 of 2. (continued from here)

Again, this is all really basic stuff. I am by no means an expert in anything. It’s just that I’ve seen a lot of fic writers getting confused by this stuff. So if I got my facts wrong I take corrections!

 Anyway, lot of you people will simply nod your heads and say “but I know all of this already”! Well, but there are people who are just now beginning to become fascinated by cloak and dagger fiction type fighting & weapons. This is for them.

Let’s cover melee weapons this time.

xThe Musketeers

Athos’ shirt of hugeness and flappy sleeves. It’s more or less finished; it needs ties for the cuffs and weathering so it’s not as pristine and blindingly white.

The linen I used is thicker than the linen they used on the show but I couldn’t find the thinner kind affordably, so this does well enough.

Athos 1.0 and friends at the Elf Fantasy Fair. (Rugged handsome Corvo is hyenasloth :3 )The event was great fun as usual and I met some enthusiastic Musketeers fans, including a Constance, which was fantastic! I need to start practicing Athos’ iconic line though… xDOnce I get more of the costume finished I’ll also do manly makeup and attempt to make my hair go wavy (though no guarantees there, it does so insist on being dead straight). With the addition of the hat this will really be an ideal costume for outdoors events.

Hiiiiiii!I was Constance.
Meeting you was seriously the highlight of our day :)

Hello! 8D Really enjoyed meeting (and gushing about the musketeers ahahaha) you guys too! I hope that when you make Aramis’ costume we can get some photos together again. :)

Probably will take at least half a year due to various reasons, but yeah, absolutely! I’d love that!

That’s not a problem; I’m going to be wearing Athos for a long time!

The end is in sight! It needs some more buttons and I have to finish the sleeve cuffs, but it’s nearly there… days later than I’d hoped. So many tricky details! x)

Spot on. Did you use real leather for this or faux?

Thanks! It’s real leather; I was lucky enough to find the right colour & type (or close enough anyway) cheaply at a market stall selling offcuts.
