Eowyn – Dernhelm, The Cloak Begins


This is a heavy wool blanket, £13 on ebay and formerly pink! I’ve machine dyed it with half a pack of leftover dark green dye and it is now greyish. Another round or two of dye to go, then I can shape and distress it.

Chainmail! This is riveted mail in aluminium, so it looks great and won’t pull apart but it’s lightweight. This is really important to me as I have joint problems.

This set was a bargain on eBay, badly listed with a low starting price so only cost me about £70 for this and a pair of chainmail leg pieces. I’ll be using the ‘stockings’ to extend the arms. I’ll also raise the slit in the front and back.
