Inside Adam Savage’s Cave: Weta Workshop’s Aragorn Vambraces

Adam shares an important component to an Aragorn cosplay he’s been slowing assembling–Aragorn’s leather vambraces that he wears throughout the Lord of the Rings trilogy. These vambraces were made the artists at Weta Workshop, and Adam shows the layered construction and intricate details that make it a beautiful and comfortable piece of costuming!

  1. You’re looking for a word – I love this one: verisimilitude. Roughly? Giving the appearance of truth. But the use of it when I’ve seen it is that it’s this loving attention to detail, this close focus to make something speak reality.

    OK I’ve only met it in the wild about three times, but it’s a DAMN good word. And why not coopt it for the fine craftsmanship involved in this sort of work?
