A leather and pigskin hood with strap and buckle fastening.
The cowl is made from dark brown pigskin so is really supple and sits well on your head. It has a strip of leather sewn to the front opening to stiffen that area and keep it clear of your face. The mantle section is a black leather which is heavier and shaped to sit comfortably on your shoulders.
It is fastened with small strap and buckle sets which add detail while making it easy to get on and off.
Darkblade are based in Greenfield on the edge of Saddleworth Moor. On a crisp winters day looking out of the window you can almost see the goblins arriving at the Battle of the 5 armies. We’ve been building leather stuff for Larp for over 20 years, designs guided by our many years of larping experience(fighting, dying, running away, the usual stuff)
Meet the team
TIM Tim setup Darkblade many years ago before the Interweb knew what the Interweb was. Tim designs and builds stuff in leather and has thought of everything your character might need. He designs patterns, cuts up leather and builds stuff, answers the phone, trades at events and generally runs the company (well, it is his company).
PETE Pete has worked at Darkblade for about a decade. Noone is quite sure how he joined the company, he probably visited and just forgot to leave. Pete deals with printing, picking, packing and posting the orders, reminds Tim to do stuff, bashes rivets, answers emails, reminds Tim to do stuff, builds stuff and takes the blame when Tim hasn’t done stuff. Pete started live roleplaying back in the Treasure Trap days at Peckforton Castle (them were the days) and attended the final year. He then got involved in Spirit of Adventure and various other systems which used Gaffa Weapons and we wore Hessian from old potato sacks.
DEREK Derek started his modelling career at the age of 2. He initially modelled nappies and clothing and during his teenage years it is rumoured he was the Milky Bar Kid (although he has never confirmed this). In his early 20’s he strode the catwalks of Paris and Milan modelling for the high-end fashion houses, he was friends with Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, all 3 often seen partying in London. Derek recently retired and has been modelling on a part-time basis for Darkblade. Derek currently lives with his micro-pigs on a small holding. His hobbies and interests include Waterskiing, Yoga, Real Ale and he has what is considered to be a world class collection of pencils.
We try and get smaller items built and out the door in two or three days. They go with Royal Mail Second class or small packet(overseas) or First class signed for or Track and Trace(overseas) depending on the cost of the item.
Bigger stuff might take us a week or two to build, especially if it's built to size and is then sent via courier.
If you open the box and it doesn't fit, the colour's not what you thought it would be or you're unhappy in any way shape or form let us know ([email protected] or 07952 564804) and we'll try to put the smile back on your face. Legally you've got 14 days from when you received the goods to do this but we do understand about birthdays and Christmas.
We're happy to exchange stuff or give you a full refund provided you haven't used it although you have to pay the return postage(trying it on does not constitute using it, wearing it for a 24 hour linear adventure does)
