Accessories for warriors and diplomats

By spotogspindel | November 24, 2016

It´s the accessories that makes the outfit. At least to a certain degree. Peter Pan includes a number of characters, and as designer I am lucky enough to play around with how they will look. The pirates, for instance, are from all corners of the world. For one of them I made this leather shoulder-armor.


The leather is from cow and very soft so I´m using a cotton/fake suade as backing to make it a bit sturdier.


Still missing the buckles to fasten it. How annoying that stores don´t sell them anymore!

Another character is a very posh diplomat. In addition to his tailcoat, he needs a proper sash. This one is sewn from silk (lined with cotton for sturdiness), added yellow ribbons and once the medals are in place, there´s not much doubt. A senior and decorated diplomat visiting the house of Darling.


It´s often these little things that are the most fun to make. The armor I made up as I went along, gradually building the right shapes. It´s really fun seeing something take the form you are trying to achieve.
