Here is a collection of crowns and necklaces that were used for a local production of King Arthur. Sorry if the images are alittle large. I also apologize for not having close up of the pieces. These photos were for both my portfolio and headshots for the actors to use.







You can see the rest of the album here

So, to be clear...

They went with chainmail headpieces that would've most certainly been made of solid metal... But went with netting for the actual chainmail?!?!?!


Seriously though, its great work Very Happy (Both the maille and the photography)... I do love the look on the last guys face though... Coif LoL

Well, the costume designer didn't feel like spending a couple hundred hours making haubreks and if you would have seen what they used for their last production, my work was a 100 times improvement to adding bling to the stage. And the bottom pic is King Urien and Morgana Le Fay, needless to say they don't really like each other and are unfortunately married to one another. I have another pic in my album with them hiding their weapons behind their back while giving cheesy smiles to one another. Coif LoL

I like the pieces that you did! Some nice creativity and variation for the different couples.

I do have to agree with DL about the cloth maille, have to laugh over that one.

very nice I hope we see more of your work.

ya I love the ones for Urien and Morgana...I can see why they wouldnt want real armor though. working the stage under those lights is trying enough without wearing armor. I quite like the armor substitute as well. the mesh looks alot more real then when people try to pass kitting off as maille.

I suppose I should name the couples Smile

The first pic is King Lot and his wife Morgase. The second pic is King Arthur and Lady Guenevire. And the last is King Urien and Morgana. My link does have more pics on my facebook page also.

And thanks for the compliments. Much appreciated.

I wish I could see more of the chainmaille. They look gorgeous even without detailed pictures. It also looks like everyone had a lot of fun! Very Happy
