Damn vod that looks great!
My one critique is the patches don't really look right on it...

yeah, they do kind of stick out. I will be weathering the whole thing quite a bit. The patches will be dirty, and the entire kama will look pretty beat up, so I think they'll end up looking more integrated into the whole thing. But, if I get down to the end I still don't like them, I can just take them off. They're only tacked on with embroidery floss.  :rolleyes:

I'm just saying because like if you look at mine closely its got lots of holes in it but it adds to the look of it as a whole, so holes arn't too big of a deal to leave torn and open like that IMO.

I had a cloak at one point that had some of the larger holes either hemmed to stop fraying or resewn. I used a different colour (but weathered cloak and embroidery thread as one thing) to make it look like old repairs.
Once those patches are recoloured/weathered they will likely fit in a lot better. Only thing I'd do is make the patches less square and more 'random bit of spare fabric/leather' that you found lying around.

Nice vest! I say ditch the patches and just leave torn holes. Cha.

So, I got tired of my vest gradually loosening as I move, so I added some elastic strapping on the inside. There are buttons on the front:


And straps that come around from the back:


And they fasten underneath the laces so I can keep the lacing aesthetic without having to retie my vest every fifteen minutes!   :laugh:

So, I weathered my Kama. I used a combination of spray paint, bleach, actual paint applied with a kabuki brush, and real dirt. It looks lighter in the pictures than it is in real life (because of the flash), so I'll get some outside soon.
