Introducing the NEW “Sigrun” War Maiden Ladies DIY Leather Armour kit, designed and built by Alex Agricola the founder of Black Raven Armoury, with original Norse Art by our very own Vitor Gonzalez. This design really has come as a result of years of feedback… So often woman’s armour being described impractical by the combatants out there or too “bra like” by people in general, not to mention the countless comments on “never the right size or shape” and so was born in my head, the possibility of such an armour….
So here she is… winning the battle of so many boxes to tick… The Sigrun, an armour that could combine beauty, presence… Something that would work whether wielding a sword…. or ruling a kingdom..A combination of formed breast sections that create a practical shape suitable for combat comfort, over 100 individual scales front and rear, for mid section movement and all made using overlapping 3.2mm veg, backed with suede … Feminine shape, with offering protection AND fully adjustable at the sides, front & rear shoulders not to mention size options that will work from a 36” bust up to a 60” bust, C cup up to an F cup.
Made from multiple layers of Top Grain, 3.2-3.5mm veg tan, the Sigrun is available as a DIY kit with everything you need to construct, and is availble both Pre Embossed or Plain in undyed veg tan leather. As with all my armours, this original Master I lovingly aged, distressed, antiqued and finished to give that “real” look and feel. This armour is 100% suitable for a variety of uses, be it Larp event, theatre stage or big screen, this kit will enable you to produce a set of fully functional “REAL” protective armour, however should you need this for SCA, all that needs adding is a thin extra layer of suede for the upper body (we will provide a cutting template) the mid and lower sections are well over SCA specifications with regards required thickness (8mm+ in some sections).
As with all my DIY larp kits, I wanted to offer this in a plain version as well as embossed, for all you keen toolers out there…. Ideal as a base design for personalisation. A complete package and perfect gift for both beginners and the more advanced, saving countless hours of design, creating templates, tracing and hand cutting, not to mention the hours spent punching holes !!!!!
Best of all, no matter your level of skill…. we give you all you need aside of the 5-6 hours needed to build this. Leather finish shown using “Black Raven Armoury – Armourkote” pictured is saddle tan

Complete pre cut & punched leather sections

All in all everything you could need to create that dream armour for yourself, a loved one, your friends….
