Really like the dress. How long did it take to make?

Gorgeous!

How did the model feel wearing it?

I haven't made garments yet, and I'm curious about the feel of metal against skin. If it's cold, rough, etc.


I admire its purity. A survivor … unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality.

That's beautiful! How flexible is it to move around in (can you sit, bend over, etc)?


I'll rise, but I won't shine.

Well, this is definately not the first time with garments (check the gallery). All girls loved to wear this dress. The main weight is on the shoulders, so it's obvious that you have to make them as comfortable as possible I n this case it's just linked scales. And scalemail mostly is E4in1 which is pretty flat. so no sharp edges. If you want to use chains instead of sheets, i suggest flowerchains or similar. Others of my tank tops have a base of rondo as necklace and shoulderparts with some sort of ZTB hilt (tripled box-chains): You always have to keep in mind that, no matter what metal you use, it's getting heavy: so find out where to put the base that holds everything and make it comfortable to wear and/reinforce it.

I'm not really sure what to answer. Basically E4in1 is pretty flexible, but that's only because it consists of pretty few rings/elements. This is rather a question of Aspect ratio. Furthermore a garment's comfort is bound to its pattern. And patterns work with how a body moves, bends, shrinks in different locations. There's an tutorial about a full chainmail body by TRL to find somewhere here in the database which shows the points where you have to interchain more or less scales to differ the amount of scales per line to make the sheets wider or smaller. Same technique you will find in this The Happy Barbarian Hordelands scalemaiil tutorial which also can be found in the database and which i strongly recommend, if you want to try out scalemail (it's awesome loaded with techniques)

I made this dress while trying out techniques from the The Happy Barbarian Hordelands. the veil of my dress is two triangles of diagonal scalemail sheets connected with a line of scales. You find all knowledge in the tutorial, so it won't be difficult to make things as long as you want. The real problem is that scalemail is a bit heavy. You can put a veil to a garment that closes in the front, so that you drag the veil with your whole body: you need something to counter the mass. Otherwise if you try to attach it to your throat only, it will choke you.
