Cosplay that looks exactly like the source material is so yesterday’s news. Nowadays plenty of people take a character and use their basic look and color scheme to design a whole new costume never seen before.
People who are looking to go a little medieval with their costumes and aren’t leatherworking experts should probably look to Prince Armory, who design and create uniquely amazing sets of leather armor. Their finished pieces look so gorgeous you’ll probably want to refer to them as art. Art that could probably stop a knife, that is.
Prince Armory has been creating custom hand crafted armor, costumes and leather products since 2007. What began as a business that was almost exclusively custom one-off items has blossomed into full sets of leather armor commissioned by their patrons.
While much of their work is inspired by fantasy and medieval settings, a few of their pieces have dipped into modern-day geekery.
Besides Iron Man, their customers have commissioned medieval inspired costumes based on characters such as Darth Vader, Marvel’s Loki, DC’s Batman and the Joker and even the Warrior of Light from Final Fantasy.
Prince Armory’s impressive work has also been used in a Samsung TV commercial. Take a close look at the rider at the beginning on the white horse.
To see more of their outstanding work, be sure to take a look at their website, Facebookor DeviantArt page to see all the amazing pieces they’ve crafted. What’s great about their work is that every commission is an original, and they will never do the same exact set twice. If you want a suit of armor made by them, you can be assured that no one else will be riding into battle with the same fearsome leather as you will!
