c1550 Tournament Armour

16th century tournament armour

For the first 5 years of my armouring career I made a lot of 16th century style armour like this. I have made several similar suits for various Joust Troops that perform at Renaissance Fairs around the country. This particular armour was featured in Microsoft Age of Empires print adds, Playboy Magazine and a number of commercials and television shows before being sold to a jouster. From what I hear portions of this harness are still being worn in tournaments now, more than a decade after it was sold.
