The next time you need a leather jerkin for a cosplay or just to wear because it looks FREAKIN’ COOL, here’s one you should definitely check out.

This leather jerkin by Firebird Leather is handmade using suede leather. It has a pointed hood and a lace-up closure in the back which gives you the ability to size it for your body specifically. It also has a swallow tail design so it’s longer in the back.

You can customize the leather and the hardware, so there are a lot of options to choose from. But the thing I find most interesting is that there’s no sewing involved, it uses rivets along every seam.

I want it.

This epic leather and metal armor was made by Onirium Studios – Ivalysse Leatherwork for a LARP. What’s even more amazing is this is an original character. I’d say this gives game and movie costume designers a serious run for their money.

The original cosplay collection includes a Chaos Warrior, Tribal Warrior, Celtic Warrior, and Battle Faun.

To complete the collection, Onirium Studios partnered with Calimacil to create the weapons, L’atelier du Grimeur for the faun mask and horns, and Maskworld for the boots. Modeled by the lovely Deakath, the studio-ready costumes were photographed by Croc-blanc and Pandora-photography.

I’m in love. Check them all out after the break.
