I should have done this post a lot earlier but I kept forgetting and then I was incredibly busy...
You see, at school a couple or so months ago I made myself a pair of "armguards" (or whatever you want to call them) during sewing class. I mainly made them just for fun while I waited to start another cosplay project. The thing is that these are super simple, completely handsewn and made solely out of recycled leather fabric scraps that my school had likely salvaged from to-be-trashed furniture. Yeah, these arm decorations are economic and environmental-friendly, haha. :'D

both arm covers are worn.
But seriously, it's cool and makes me happy to think that these used to someone's couch back in the days, haha. I really support re-using fabrics and other materials instead of always buying new ones – let's give old things new lives and new purposes! Our Earth will thank us in the long run.
Shiro Samurai leaves for today! See ya!
