This looks totally badass. I can just see errol flynn with a rapier in one hand, and a gun in the other, saying "HAVE AT THEE, KNAVE!" while flying about the deck of a skyship. Ah, the good old days of being a kid and getting to play at swordfighting...
Although... Hmmm... is this meant to be armor worn by skypirates? as in, when they're about to board some poor hapless merchant ship to rob, pillage, plunder and otherwise hornswaggle the ladies ("hey big pirate boy, is that a sprocket in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?") OR, is it meant to be everyday wear for Steampunk Pirates? It just seems to me that if it was everyday wear, it would be a bit more... ecclectic, I think is the word I'm looking for. Ya know... bits and bobs here and there.
and may I just say, them's some daaaaaaamn well financed pirates if they can get that as everyday wear. Although in my case, i'd probably sell the armor for more grog.
Augh! It just looks /so/ amazing! My brain is failing at being coherent enough to give you a good enough description for just how much I love this! So please accept my lack of words as sufficient praise <3
This is so cool I am going to show my husband. We collect midevil weapons. I am usually into paintings and photos. But this is true craftsmanship. Did you do this for money or because you just wanted to?
