Viking Chainmaille

This used to be a long-sleeve chainmaille shirt I made with a Templar cross in the middle, but I recently heavily modified it to give it a more viking-feel (not historically accurate in ANY way). I changed the sleeve connections to use more of a 90-degree connection pattern, and I shortened the sleeves themselves. I also bought some fake fur material and connected the rings directly through the material to bind it to the shirt at the collar and sleeve ends.

The scale vambrace/glove on my left hand is a combination of scale with split rings on the top, and stainless steel rings with rubber rings (to add flex when putting it on and taking it off) on the bottom. Still figuring out a fix to make the vambrace section more rigid so it doesn't slide down my forearm like it has in this photo.
