Idea for LARPing armor

Post  Admin on Sun Sep 26, 2010 10:24 am

To all,

I'm posting this as I read this off of Rachel Newman's FB post and I thought this is a great idea for some cheap Ringmail or Chainmail armor. Here is the article:

Two costume makers LOST THEIR FINGERPRINTS working on The Lord of the Rings.

To clarify, chainmail is a type of armor made from small metal rings linked together in a mesh. For LOTR, two people had to construct hundreds of chainmail costumes out of PVC pipe.

When all was said and done, a total of 12.5 million links had been fashioned out of 7 miles of PVC pipe! As a result of all this tedious labor, the two workers ended up rubbing the fingerprints off of their thumbs and forefingers!
