It's actually an Eastern chainmail weave, which is essentially a chain grid, for lack of a better way to describe it (Nobunaga's is a traditional western weave, for comparison).  If you had a lot more resources, the way it's rendered, it would be larger rings (like 1/4" inner diameter) being connected by smaller rings (1/8" diameter).  When we did all our chainmail work, we only had the setup to make 1/4" rings, so our group's Date did his chainmail with all 1/4" rings.  He also only made it to cover his arms.

Actually, better idea:
http://theringlord.com/cart/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=75&cat=Chainmail+Weaves+Samples  Date's weave appears to be the Oriental 4-in-1.  For Nobunaga, we used the European 4-in-1 weave.

...the hubby's done a fair bit with SCA at various points in his life, so I learned a lot about chainmail from him explaining it to all of us.  And yes, we stared at high-res images for a long time.  ^^;  Artbooks are great for that.

We know the whole fragile costume thing way too well.  Nobunaga's spikes are the worst thing.  For AOD, we decided to just tear them all off and reattach them with magnets because it's annoying to have to carry around a hot glue gun for whenever they *inevitably* fall off.  Also, it made navigating the halls a lot easier.

They need to be able to fall off though; it's better for the costume to take damage than for somebody walking around us to take damage if they run into the spikes.  But carrying around a hot glue gun is annoying.

O_O  The oriental 4-in-1 weave doesn't look nearly as bad as the European 4-in-1, which is the one I tried.  Hm... I think I have both the jump ring sizes (the 1/4" and 1/8") ones, but IDK if the 1/8" ones are in the right width.... Have to go check.

That is a great resource, btw.  :D *bookmarks page*

I am looking forward to this gathering so much!  I was able to have Kojuro ready at Sakuracon, so I really am excited to wear him to Fanime.  Just need to finish redoing the coat and he'll be done!

I am getting close to being done with my improvements. I am really excited to see how the new helmet turns out.

I am also super excited for con. I'm still kinda in recovery mode from Sakuracon so it doesn't feel that close but I leave in 3 weeks x.x

I was looking at the list of the gatherings and the Basara one isn't on there. I guess we will just have to spread the information by word of mouth. Its a shame that it didn't get posted in that topic
