Mild steel haubergeon

Sign in to follow this  

Outfit I wore to the Bristol RenFaire. I promise I'm not a small child, but it was mid-90s that day so I shed my gambeson and my body looks really small compared to the helmet. Not historically accurate, but roughly historically based "Dark Ages" type get-up. I was planning on using a spectacle helm but with the heat I wanted every extra bit of ventilation I could get. Up around the shoulders is 14g, the rest is 16g 5/16"

Alas, it doesn't have a liner or suspension system, so I have to have a pretty thick arming cap on to keep it comfortable for long-term wear that takes up most of the space in there. But hey, it was $20 at a flea market, so I'm happy with it :D
