Arm Bracers

Decided to make some arm bracers for my legolas outfit.

At my school all the leavers dress up on the last day. Me and some of my friends are going as in Lord of the Ring characters. Unfortunately all the legolas costumes are over £30 and for men. I’ve managed to put a passable effort together for under £15. Cheapskates, ho!

This was my first time trying to build anything like this, and honestly wouldn’t mind doing it again. I probably didn’t use the most conventional method, but harnessing the power of bostik, scissors and a scalpel I managed to make the basic shape then add detail with extra leatherette and white thread.

Still thinking about putting wooden beads on the excess string, might look nice but could end up being annoying. We’ll see.
