Not that kind of mail, see below:
I've been a bit stymied about getting my propane forge finished because it requires large solid blocks of free time. I decided to start a project that I could do in small blocks. Enter the great Hallowe'en project. I've decided, in consultation with Little Miss Bugbear, to make a Joan of Arc costume for this coming Hallowe'en.
Now I'm not insane, I know how much effort it is to make a full mail Hauberk so I think that I'm going to make a gambeson and trim the bottom and sleeves with mail. Put a surcoat over top and you won't be able to see the fact that Little Miss Bugbear isn't wearing a full mail hauberk. Since Little Miss Bugbear is only going to be pushing four years old I selected aluminum as the material. Besides being about a third the weight of steel, aluminum is much easier to bend. If time permits I will complete the hauberk and a matching coif but Hallowe'en is only one hundred and eighty-five days away!
I don't expect I'll have it completed.
For those interested, the piece above made from 16 gauge aluminum links formed on a ¼" mandrel. The background is ¼" quad paper.
