Have you ever wondered exactly where all my armour is from and how much it cost and weighs? Well now you can find out!
A very nice video by @larplyyyyyyf that demonstrates how a suit of plate armor can be fitted so that it can distribute weight and how the system of layering tends to work. It also covers the importance of why some parts need to be carefully fitted.
(Spoiler: None of the plates need to be form fitted to appear skin tight)
