Aspen Tree Leather Helmet by SavagePunkStudio
Aspen Tree Leather Helmet
Part of a full harness of themed leather armor, from helmet to sabatons.  The person commissioning it wanted a set of Druid armor that appeared to be made from a living aspen tree, with bark detail and leaves.

Shown here is Your Humble Narrator, looking particularly grumpy for some reason.  This helmet was constructed of 7 pieces of 8-ounce veg-tan leather, with leather leaves riveted on.  It's pretty comfy, for a leather brain-bucket.

Aspen Bark Armor, Pauldron and Arm by SavagePunkStudio
Aspen Bark Armor, Pauldron and Arm
Part of a full harness of themed leather armor, from helmet to sabatons.  The person commissioning it wanted a set of Druid armor that appeared to be made from a living aspen tree, with bark detail and leaves.

The torso and pauldrons of this armor were both designed loosely like a set of Roman Lorica Segmentata, for the mobility and because the overlapping strips of leather were the easiest shape to make reminiscent of actual tree bark.  This pauldron has a small leafy branch protruding from it, which was left softer and more flexible than the rest of the leather, so it wouldn't hang up a larp weapon.

Aspen Tree Armor, Arms and Gauntlets by SavagePunkStudio
Aspen Tree Armor, Arms and Gauntlets
Part of a full harness of themed leather armor, from helmet to sabatons.  The person commissioning it wanted a set of Druid armor that appeared to be made from a living aspen tree, with bark detail and leaves.

These articulated arms are shown here with their accompanying articulated gauntlets, in a matching style.  All the "scarring" and blemishes you see on the armor was tooled into the leather before being painted, so it's three-dimensional and has texture.

It's been a crazy busy season for me in the studio, so far- more ambitious and more time-consuming projects on commission, for the most part.  I have four full suits of armor due by September, in addition to a host of smaller side projects and armor bits.  Some highlights on the bench right now are: a trilobite-themed Indo-Persian armor set; an Art Nouveau Lily corset in hardened leather, and a head-to-toe set of Druid Armor, made to look like it's living birch. I work a full-time, very physical "day job" and have a five-year-old son, so trying to balance all that with pursuing a second career as a Crafter is proving very difficult for me.

I'm sorry for the lack of good picture posts recently- I hope to correct that soon with some more submissions.  Thanks to everyone for following/favorite-ing my stuff- your comments and kindness are humbling to me.

I live in Everett, MA, and when I'm not working as a carpenter I'm making weird stuff out of leather, plastic and dead things.

Thank you for saying so!  I have mixed feelings about internet attention.  There is a whole lotta stupid out there.
