I totally get this guy. A whole fair of nerds and no one got a awesome 80s pop culture reference. Shame. The faces are amazing.
This is heavy
I saw a guy at my local Renaissance Faire dressed as the Tenth Doctor. I immediately approached him, curtsied (sword held in from of me), and said, “Milord Doctor… you have returned.” He didn’t even skip a beat, and was like, “Yes, Milady. The years have treated you well, I presume?” in a PERFECT British accent. We kind of walked around for a while after that. I think I became his companion for a day.
Just bringing over a tip I posted on Facebook that I thought might helpful to cosplay folks.
Soooo a lot of times the metal buckles you grab off the shelf be it for armor or straps or jackets are going to be a shiny plated nickel. It’s possible to find an antique nickel finish, but it’s rarer, especially if you don’t have a specialty store like Tandy Leather near you. For me, Tandy didn’t have the antique finish in the buckles I liked best, so I picked up the shiny ones and tried to figure out a way to age them for Fili.
After some internet digging I found a few different methods for darkening/aging the metal, but I didn’t really have the time or tools for them. Then I randomly found this product and decided, why not. The stuff is called… Nickel Ager. And hallelujah, it does exactly what it says. In the pic above, you can see how shiny my buckles were in the top picture. The middle picture was after letting them sit in the solution of Nickel Ager for TWO MINUTES and then letting them dry overnight. After that I buffed them with steel wool, and the result is the bottom right buckle. Bottom left is before being buffed. The result is beautiful, and half a bottle of the smallest bottle covered 6 buckles and a handful of studs and probably would have gone further if I was being careful (aka not lazy).
So yeah, if you have bright shiny nickel plated buckles and need them to have a natural aged look, THIS.
