Steampunk Combat Tesla Armor
Like Lolo Jones and Hope Solo, the Steampunk Combat Tesla Armor's specs and stats are almost as impressive as its cut curves and transfixing beauty. Designer Jordan Edmondson hand-manipulated copper, leather, and brass into the C.T.A. Mk II (Combat Tesla Armor Mk II), a duel arm-bracer design that covers the wearer's shoulders, biceps, and forearms.
The cosplay (and chick magnet?) set's Tesla dubbing stems from its centerpieces, high-voltage visuals in the form of integrated Tesla Coils. Thick-gauge copper circuitry and copper back plates wind through bicep and forearm attachments, cementing the armor's apocalyptic steampunk look and feel.
Also pretty damn cool: the metal wires, tubes, and coils are derived predominantly from spent bullet casings--.45, .22, 9mm, and .50 caliber rounds. Edmondson also managed all of the C.T.A. Mk II's leatherwork himself, including its hand-stitched border trim. Wraparound pieces are adjustable via long buckles and straps, although designed to fit a person of small to medium stature.
The complete Combat Tesla Armor set includes: right and left shoulder, bicep, and forearm bracers; leather belts and straps, and four vintage 7.62 leather ammo pouches.
