well aside from the derailment of the post lol. Tandy leather is now located near toys r us in the noland fashion square area. Google maps doesnt pull it up and takes you to the wrong place. Shame on them lol. I couldnt find it yesterday do to that so isntead of being stubborn and adventerous I just called the store. So if you take 70 highway to exit 12 onto south noland its in that general area. google lies and places it in an unfinished area south of lake tapawingo in what is a road with an office building.
Also i know a bit about leather working. Its not my area of specialty in the armor making, but i can show people how to make bracers and other basic stuff and have enough understanding of how leather works to figure out how to make more complicated peices, so feel to send be a pm if you have any questions or were to start. Leather is cool cause its so shapeable with only a little work. Depending on how much it is I might be buying a side of 12 ounce leather to work with today and if its to much for right now I will be getting it Friday when i get paid. I will have plenty extra to make bracers and other things with.
Edit: Looks like I can get a pretty decent side of saddle leather for about 100 bucks so if its not raining cold evil little rain drops all day tommorrow, I will figure out the cost of materials for making various armor items and let people know.
