Commission: Red and Blue Dungeonpunk Gambeson

This is very much a recolour of the dungeonpunk gambeson but with less asymmetry. It's made of dark blue faux suede and red linen, with gunmetal grey fastenings.

Much of the fiddliness of the original gambeson is present here. There's the vambraces with dagger loops, large pouches and the basic weaponsloops on the back.

Due to it being a commission, the gambeson doesn't exactly fit the Proprietor very well. It's a tad on the small side on him, but it's a reasonable quick snap of what it looks like for the website. Not all commissions end up photographed, after all, most of it depends entirely on whether or not we have the time and a convenient model at hand (or just a hanger and a white wall).

To commission a similarly fiddly gambeson from the Costume Mercenary would cost in the region of £160.
