The Alchemist's Bracer by RawringCrafts The Alchemist's Bracer by RawringCrafts
Ever since I came up with the Alchemist's Bandolier, I wanted to make a whole set of armor for an alchemist costume.

I've been procrastinating that project for far too long, so here finally is the second part of the set, the Alchemist's Bracer.

Like I usually do it with costume items, this is a prototype. I am already really satisfied with how it turned out, but I am not sure I will keep the design exactly like this in the future.
Maybe I will change it, maybe I will not.
In any case, this bracer is available for sale here:

The description from the Etsy listing:
"Another indispensable item for the traveling potion brewer.
Four easily accessible vials hold your potions (or liquors, for the mellow brewers) and the sturdy bracer itself protects your arms from monsters and exploding stills alike.
The lacing on it's underside makes sure it fits even when wearing heavy, insulated gloves underneath.

Every alchemist worth their name owns a bracer, or two of this kind.

Roleplaying aside: This bracer is made from artificial leather. All the metal parts are stainless steel and a thick fleece padding makes it really comfortable to wear.
From end to end it is roughly 25cm (10 inches) long (20cm/8inches without the fins).
It can be worn on either arm and the lacing makes sure it fits any size.
The vials are made from resistant polypropylene and thus completely shatter proof."

These are really cool, (and even reasonably priced!) but I wouldn't have a costume to go with it X'D It doesn't really match the black-and-red costume I have going currently c: I am tempted though, I dig the idea

Well, if you'd like one in another color theme, that would be no problem. I love to make customized items. It's much more fun than doing the same thing hundreds of times.

I actually have a pair of real leather bracers for my black and red outfit, What I really need is some leather (or faux leather XD) shoulder Pauldrons to go with them *thinks*
