This 26-year-old, self-taught artist from France is making the armor of your fantasies. Or should I say, fantasy armor. Deakath makes items for herself and her husband out of vegetable-tanned leather to go LARP in. More amazing? She only started working with armor in April of 2012.

Sadly, no commissions are being done at this time. See more on her DeviantArt page.
