Finally, it’s time to show photos of the completed Thorin armor shirt.
First, an inventory photo of the handmade scales prior to attachment to the shirt. I made a total of 434 polymer clay scales, not including the trials and errors. For Thorin alone, that’s 116 for the sleeves, 110 for the breastplate, 98 for the thighs and belt. The rest are for Kili’s collar, baldric, and vambrace.
Then, here are some production photos I did not include in the previous tutorials:
And here's Oneal wearing the armor the night it arrived in Manila:
Yesterday, Oneal wore his Thorin character in a Geekfight event where his team won!
