Well I went home for lunch today, and much to my pleasure I found my gorget had been delivered!
The box even looked as though it had been shipped from next door rather than across the country and back! Of course, the one day in the past 5 years that I have mild steel shipped to my house, it rains. So to keep the gorget in good condition, I hurried home to get it inside where it won’t rust as quickly.
Pictures should be soon to come, along with the long awaited process pictures of my completed buff coat. I may even take pictures of my helmet and rapier mask when it is done. I am so close to a complete kit I can almost taste it. It should all be done by next Tuesday so I can finally show up to practice. Oooooh… I can just feel the enthusiasm.
