'morning All,

I have this Elk hide (hairless) type Mountain Man gig.

More comfortable and warm than one would think.

Kinda fun to dress up and head over to the Fort Bridger Rendezvous over Labor Day in Fort Bridger, Wyoming.

Thanks for taking the time to view--------->

#LovinLife,

Robb

Very nice! I want to try and make a shirt. A friends brother actually hunts in his loin cloth and leggings made from buckskin.

I bet you`re the talk of the Friday Night mixer in that get up....jk

Those are some very nice pieces and look very authentic. Is that blueish/purple strips beadwork or colored thread? I also like the fringe work on the bottom as it starts in a random pattern....not just straight across and the same length.

Seriously, that's pretty cool. A ton of labor, skill and talent went into that.

How about modeling the outfit?

Better not model the shirt, Rob. Some guys on here might complain about you showing off your “guns”

I think I saw you in Jack Links beef jerky commercial!

Personally model that outfit.............thread of the year. LOL.

Seriously, that's a cool way to make use of all your elk hides. I have boxes of them with no clue what to do with them.

Hey thanks

The multi color beads are a sew on that come in a 5ft roll, not too pricey.

I thought for sure to see some moccasins posted ………

See my link for the Fort Bridger info

Some extremely talented folks attend and do most everything the way it was done back in the Mountain man/woman timeframe.

I have a couple Hair On elk hides and I am thinking of doing some Knee High Gaiters out of 1 hide, they look really kool.

A regular sewing machine with an industrial needle and a Surger type sewing machine work well on the thicker hides like elk and moose, never ever tried to make any thing out of the remaining hide off my Buff mount...… hmmmmmm

Thanks for the PM's asking about that wall, it took me about a week to do---- every piece of wood was hand cut for placement with the table saw and band saw, yes 3 different wood types used.

Thanks again,

Good luck, Robb

Was into the Buckskinning scene for over 2 decades. Made all of my and my wife's clothing. Was even married at a Rendezvous over 34 yrs. ago. One tip...don't fall in a river wearing full "skins"....they get heavy fast,making it tough to crawl out!

Franklin—no talk of fringe work on bowsite! Next thing we’ll be talking sequins, beads, etc. Only goes downhill from there!

John Dunbar would be proud.
