Here is the deal. I am getting pic related to use as armor against attacking animals. I know it is not leather or chain mail, but every little bit off extra fabric is useful and being that it should be loose fitting, the robe has potential to bunch up while being attacked. Also better for an animal to attack a dangling piece of cloth than going straight for my legs.

My question is what would be the optimal way to cut the bottom of the robe to give my legs mobility, but without sacrificing coverage of my legs? While Geralt's robe has a lot of mobility, a lot of his legs are exposed from the front. So I don't know. The drawing I have put together is what I would ideally like to have, but I don't know.

> armor against attacking animals

> LARPing this hard

What kind of animal are you actually expecting this to be effective against? A little extra cloth ain't gonna do shit to stop a serious attack. In addition all that extra drapery dragging and flapping around would be counterproductive when dealing with insects. The vidya man's dress looks like it's practically designed to pick up ticks. You could acheive a similar or better effect with (pics related). Some of those outfits might even not broadcast that you're autistic.

If you're serious about protecting yourself then you just need to be sensible. Snakes a problem? Learn where they live and how to avoid them. Maybe invest in snake chaps if your region is really bad. Ticks? Insect repellent, tucked in light colored clothing, sanitize innawoods clothing after use, and check yourself. Worried about bear? Don't encourage them by leaving food around, carry a gun, and make noise. (I met a lady on a trail once who put a cowbell on her dog. Seemed weird at first but it was kind of genius. You could hear it from an impressive distance, sounded like a tinker going berserk with a tinning hammer.)

I will not live forever. I am going to have as much fun as possible without anyone's consent.



Dogs primarily. We have a real problem with dogs that were never integrated into society. These dogs only know two kinds of people. Master and threat. I have no intention of bringing this issue to city counsel. They can continue to live in their hell hole not knowing the walls are falling down. I am looking out for only my best interests.

My goal is to never get bit. You could argue they make pants that are thorn proof, but I have no knowledge of dog bite proof pants. I'm looking at snake proof pants right now, but they are quite expensive. And even then I'm on a budget. Hema gear isn't made for animal attacks. If it gets to the point I have to draw a weapon, a dog is going to be put down as soon as or before it gets a mouthful of cotton.

Yes it would be retarded to solely trust in the strength of cotton. But with proper footwork and a two-handed weapon I believe I can make up the difference.

So the witcher larper wants to go into the woods wearing a pair of khakis and a table cloth around his waist. He plans to fight off dogs with a two handed weapon and thinks he's going to "put down" a pack of strays who apparently attack people often enough to be considered dangerous.

Are you retarded or just play video games There's no difference? If your fat arse even goes into the woods and finds some stray dogs they will just walk away as you scream at them like a retard.

I hope you are genuine. There are some complications like gun, ammunition, import, I have no thigh high leather boots to compensate for a short wool coat, etc.


Isn't chain mail only good against cuts and weak against stabs. I'm sure canine teeth could fit in chain links.

I like this thread a lot. I love armor of all kinds. OP you need to make armor out of scrap sheet metal. buy tin snips, use a drill, or use a sturdy chisel or nail to punch out/ cut out sheet metal to wear as light armor. Alterativley you can use cloth strips and glue them together using a water/ flour mix glue to layer up on cloth and harden them into pieces of armor.

pants are optimal for rough terrain, but the general historical length is knee length.

if you split it you can go to about ankle length.

I would actually recommend aluminum plate armor or impact resistant plastic with a gambenson underneath.
