PREVIEW: The Forge – Daerwen Armor

Hello peeps!

So, ever since The Forge’s creator Deccan Arida announced is intention to possibly create armor for women…I have been bugging him and bugging him and…yes…bugging him. All the time. So he finally started after I literally flooded him with pictures for reference of what I was imaginign when talking about “Not so bulky female armor”. Poor guy, I really felt bad for him at times. 😛

But! He caved in and came up with this amazing armor. First, I got the belt as a preview, which is so damned perfectly fitted and so easily to resize that I was speechless. Then, he showed me a preview of his boots and I tell you, I LOVE these. He kept consulting me over patterns on the platepieces and other stuff and geeze. I am truly baffled at the outcome. Imho, this is the proof that you do NOT need to go to shit stores such as Lost Gem, Von Strauss or Erebos to get awesome stuff in SL, giving thieves your money while getting items in return that are badly rigged and have more glitches than you can think of. I am sure he will be coming up with something equally awesome for the guys soon enough as well. 😉

So far, this armor and Innocuous’ armor (available at We ❤ RP) are my absolute favs for gals.

THANK YOU, Deccan, this was desperately needed for the girls. We have a billion of dresses/skirts and silks to pick from, but wellmade armors are a rarity.

Have a look here:


So, why do I love this armor?

First of all, it comes in three different colours: Bronze (brown), silver and as an addition, black armor pieces which can be bougth separately. I wear all three colour sint he pics: Pants/bracers are from the silve routfit, boots are black, rest is bronze.The textures are AWESOME imho and really give the outfit a 3D appearance. The boots are perfectly fitted to the female leg and you can resize them as well. Look at those intricately worked mesh armor pieces? The textures and patterns are SO pretty! They look really, really fitting for an ykind of medieval setting imho.

Talk about resizing:

ALL armorpieces besides the pants and the top are easily (!!) resizeable. Nothing is more ugly imho that armor that stretches and twists as if it was made out of fabric (hi @ crappy armor from Erebos!). The belt is so damn well fitted to the female hips! The pants make an -awesome- ass and do NOT have the invisible ponyrider look! Also, created to fit into boots!I LOVE them! The top is so detailed, too, and look very rustic and natural. Every rigged part comes in the five standard sizes, too!

And now the HUGE THING that I LOVE: Each part of the outfit can be mixed and matched! Everything comes separately, even the alphas! YAY!
