    I put my Boba bucket on top of an original 14th century chainmail coat of armor (I collect antique arms and armor), just to see how Boba would look in Chainmail. Here's a pic! I'm looking forward to hearing your reactions!

    Yes, the medieval Barbute helmet is quite similar to Boba's bucket, especially the shape of the visor.

    Time to add some metal plates to that chainmail and get this party started.

    I've had a concept in my head for a few years now of a custom mando, possibly a female mando with chain mail between the armor plates on the chest and back. Maybe a chain mail skirt to go with it too?

    What's the story behind the mail shirt? What country is it from and how did you aquire it? Do you know who it belonged to originally?

    It's from the14th century (that's why it's so rusted!), and came from Germany. I bought it from a Dutch antique dealer. It has 1000's of tiny rivetted steel rings (each ring has an overlap which is closed with a rivet/nail...what a LOT of work that must have been!). I used to collect replica arms and armor, but now only authentic items.

    Is there a way to restore it from being so rusty? A very cool piece!

    DON'T RESTORE IT!!

    At least not until you make sure it will not take away from the value. ( you probably already know that )


    It IS Awesome!!

    I'm going to leave it just the way it is, I love rust! It has such a beautiful dark old patina. And restoring/cleaning old chainmail is very difficult and expensive.

    I just use sand to clean my chain mail, clean dry sand, but wouldn't recommend it on a original piece.
