Hi folks!

It sure has been a while since I've been on here, several months at the least. This is only due to my crazy-hectic life schedule. I mean I don't even have enough time on a daily basis to get a full night of sleep. This has been going on for over half a year now. But I managed to get home a little early tonight and came on here to see whats what... and OMG! I can't believe all the feedback that I've gotten over the past few months, around 500. Favorites, features, llamas, Watches, comments, etc. This is so cool and uplifting, It only makes me want to find some time to craft more leather-stuffs.

This being said. The new LARP season is coming and I have a few designs in my mind that i need to get down on paper soon. So, more to come!

Thank you so much to everyone who has shown interest in my work. It saddens me to have had to decline many order/commission requests from all over the world. Hopefully you can all understand. Also note that I usually always go and look through the profiles of all the people that fav/watch/other me, you guys are awesome!

Hi all!

Currently living in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

I'd say leather crafting, for me, was a progressive thing. I started playing in LARPs during summer 2002 and soon found myself wanting to make realistic and fantasy inspired costumes that would best suit the characters that I was portraying, while always trying to keep things as authentic as possible. Like most LARPers, I started by making boffer swords from tape and foam (quite ugly) and sewing together random costume pieces without using any patterns (usually ended up crooked as well). As I got older and more experienced in this world of roleplay, I found myself wanting to be like the big boys and wear really nice armors. However buying armors, I found out, was quite expensive. I then spent a couple of years, on and off, researching how to work leather. And finally, well, I've been working leather since 2007.

I am no pro. It's a constant learning curve. However the items in the pictures are my intellectual property and I would appreciate if people did not reproduce them without my permission. So please just ask first.

I now have an Etsy shop (Currently being restocked)

Current Residence: Montreal Canada
Favourite genre of music: Industrial and Classical
Favourite style of art: Anything truthful
Skin of choice: Mine ;)
Personal Quote: "Do, or do not, there is no try!"

Hey Richard, its Catherine. Just wanted to say you have some really beautiful pieces. Your detail on the chest plates and pauldrons are great. Love the bracers and bracelets as well.  Im sure it all requires a lot of patience, and it shows in the end result. Really nice. :)

And, thank you, i'm glad that you enjoyed them =)
