My Elven warrior finally has some arm protection now! My boyfriend did most of the crafting here, since he is far better in leather working than me. I did the design and the finish. They are technically till WIP, since the metal rank insignia is still missing on the tip.
From 2009 to 2017, is has been a long journey for this character. Elrian started out as a princess, now she is a simple soldier.
