The costume is great, but it's the dejected expression that really sells it. Awesome work!

Does "self-knitted chainmail" mean that it's not real chainmail and just some sort of fabric or is the process of making chainmail also called knitting in English?

ID: hcu93zk

No, that’s just what it’s called. Depends on the mail you’re making but most mail is a 4 in 1 or 4:1. Which means you put four rings on one central ring. The more rings to the center ring means less gaps in between the rings. There’s more to making mail than just that. However it’s all called “knitting” because the actions are similar.

ID: hcuafa5

Thanks for the answer.

ID: hcu2y6h

This is what I'm most curious about.

ID: hcu4tg4

Yeah me too, because the chainmail in the pic looks really good and I would want to know what material they used.

ID: hcu8vur

In this article they call the process "weaving" so I'd imagine some people call it knitting.

ID: hcunmgk

I think weaving is better term for that, but I didn't have a lot of contact with other chainmail people, and it's not my native language so I don't really know

ID: hcu9lhw

It means he took the iron/steel etc rings and connected them one by one to for a chainmail.

I've made chain a couple of times in the past and at least from this resolution and lighting, it appears to be the real deal. If not the real deal, then a great faux mail for sure and I'm curious what material they used. I think maybe the fact OP said "Self knitted" kind of throws me off though.

ID: hcuczr7

Nah, just means they did the links themself!

How much did the cosplay cost btw?

ID: hcujjus

Probably not as much $ as you think, but certainly cost a lot of time

I found your problem. You can't play dark souls with a mouse and keyboard. You need a controller sir.

ID: hcugdrf

Idk, I couldn't possibly play Dark Souls on a controller, but I preferred Sekiro on KBM because I could spam the parry button lmao

After all that work you should take a break, go outside and PRAISE THE SUN.
