Here are a few photos of my newly altered hauberk. We braved a blustery southwest Kansas afternoon and managed to get these done before the rain hit. Reference this earlier photo of the hauberk's original shape. From the medieval faire in August. Now observe the improved version. Notice the improved hang of the hauberk's skirt, as well as the added length. The newer rings haven't oxidized yet and you can see the additions due to the difference in color. From behind. One of my alterations was to insert a diamond shaped gore in between my shoulder blades. This eliminates any binding during movement. In this photo I have my right arm thrown back and you can see a bit of slack in the center of the gore, this denotes it's position. From the side. Due to light reflection you can just make out the triangular gore on the side of the skirt. It reaches to just below my belt. Behind cover. In the first photo I have one leg farther back than the other, hence the gap in the skirt's slit. You can just see the slit here and this gives a truer indication of how it now hangs together. The slit is also longer now and terminates just below my belt. I couldn't resist this one. Here's a close-up that gives you a better idea of the ring construction. (It was quite windy and I had problems with my tunic blowing up all over the place. It gives me sympathy for our skirt wearing better halves!) This one's my favorite of the bunch. All in all I added between five and six thousand rings to the hauberk, and maybe one or two hundred to the coif. The total weight of the hauberk, coif, and helm is now an even 40 pounds. This has been a very worthwhile endeavor for me. I've enjoyed this project and it's been quite the learning experience.
