28/2013: Corrazina pics

this armor a few years ago, but didn't get pics of it up
before. Pics are here.
January 31st/2013: Back in
business! : After a lengthy break of a few years to take
care of family, I decided to restart my business and make armor
Olds (News that's not as
September 23rd/2007: New
size : I finally got
an order for a pair of arms that were very small (less that 12"
circumference), so I want ahead and got forms made for
them. They worked out great, and are now available.
Price Correction : As well, due to the current rates between the
US and Canadian dollars, I've changed the prices on my
Covered Churburg : Someone asked me to make them a Churburg
breastplate and cover it with fabric. I think the results
were pretty nice. You can see pics of it here. The pics are a bit
big, sorry for that.
January 2007: Now
our 7th Year : Still
making armor, and happy to be doing so. I should have a
couple of new items to show this year, stay tuned...
August 30th/2006: Back
I've been back for about a week now. Pennsic was lots of
fun, especially the Tuchux charity tourney, which I
survived! Better than that, I got to test how much damage
my gauntlets sustain after punching people in the helmet;
I was closing as much as possible, and even won one bout by
punching my opponent's helm off, and the gauntlets were
fine. Back to work for me!
August 3rd,/2006: Leaving
I'll be away from phone and email from August 4th to the 21st;
I'll be catching up on my emails after that.
June 29th/2006: Going
Pennsic : I'll be at
Pennsic this year, camping with House Ironwolf. I have an
agreement with Sir Karl Von Sussen of Highland Arms to sell some
armor for me, most likely gauntlets, pauldrons and
gorgets. If you have any special requests, be sure to
email me before August.
May 2nd/2006: Price
: The Canadian
Dollar is currently at $.90 US; I had to finally break down and
update my webpage to reflect this. I haven't actually
raised my Canadian prices in about 2 years, it's all been the
April 10th/2006: New
: It's tax season in
Canada, and after looking at my records, I've noticed that I've
made OVER 100 SUITS OF ARMOR!! Again, Woo hoo!
January 24th/2006: Now
our 6th Year : Woo
hoo! Thanks to all my customers for your support.
December 12th/2005: Merry Christmas : And a happy New Year, while
I'm at it. Tied for 5th at the Northern Shores Rattan
Championships, I'm happy with that. I have a few
things that I've been working on that I hope to have ready to show
for the New Year; check back later for more updates.
October 7th/2005: Training for a Tourney : I'm training for a tourney,
"Northern Shores Regional Rattan Championships", to be held at the
event "Martinmas Comes Late this Year". It's set for
November 26th, so I have a month and a half of pell work and
biking to get me in shape. The website is here.
are going just tickety-boo in the shop (that's good), everything's on
September 21st/2005: New Server : By the time you read this I
should be all set up on my new server. After almost 5 years with my last
host, they went out of business. But here's to a smooth
August 28th/2005: Page updated
: I've recently finished some upgrades to my
webpage, mainly to the nav bar (giving the Japanese armor it's
own button), but this will also let me add pages later as I come
up with them.
2nd Japanese suit finished : I've recently
finished a second Japanese suit for Tony Kennedy, and with the
help of my tall friend Sean I have some pics of it. Pics
can be seen here.
June 17th/2005: Son born : This morning at
10:25 my wife Chantal Boudreau gave birth to a boy, Etienne
Sylvain Boudreau. It's our second child and first
boy. He weighed 8 lbs and 11 oz, and had APGAR scores of 9
& 10. It was an easy birth, Chantal is doing fine and
the baby is good and fat. I'll be taking a week or so off
to adjust to the changes, but then I'm full time for a year
which means I should be able to finish orders faster.
1st/2005: Helped Truehearth
Armouries move :
After over four years of sharing a shop with Carlo Carignan at
Truehearth Armouries, he has found and moved to his dream home,
with about four times as much space as he had at my shop.
What does this mean for me? On the up side, twice as much
space, so I'll hopefully have space to keep things in
stock. On the down side, Carlo was a great source of
advice and ideas over the years, as well as someone to
talk to on long days at work. Good luck Carlo!
Feb 10th/2005: Coat of plates
specials : While
looking through my leather stock, I notices some odd pieces and
some suede that's been around for a while. The suede is
very nice , and the leather doesn't match, but it would make a
fine coat of plates of many colors... So I'm offering a special
while I've got it, see my "In Stock"
Now in our 5th Year :
A big thanks to all my customers for your support, I couldn't do
it without you.
New new computer :
Merry Christmas & Happy New year; new computer is up and
running this time, all fixed (really this time). I'll be
answering email regularly.
Sold out at Pennsic:
All but half gauntlets, wo ho! Been back for a bit, and
had some server problems; hence no update for a while.
All fixed now. I'll be trying to make more stock , and
there should be some changes in the format of my pages in the
Leaving for Pennsic Tomorrow: Didn't get a chance for an update last month,
that's how busy I've been making armor for Pennsic. I've
arranged for Sir Karl Von Sussen of Highland Arms to sell some
armor for me. Look for him at Space 149.
3rd/2004: Crown Tourney Over: I recently competed in my first SCA crown
tourney, which I did ok at, with 2 wins. Better than that,
I got to field test my Mogami Do, which worked well and got many
compliments, including from the SCA king of the East. Pictures are up now.
2nd/2004: Getting ready for
crown tourney: I'll
be fighting in the SCA East kingdom spring crown tourney on May
1st, and I was sick for a week, so with all this and lots of
orders to make, I won't have time to keep too much in stock
(still have pauldrons, elbows and knees). If I've told you
it's in stock, then it's accounted for, you'll get your
armor. I'll be back to making some stock items again
sometime after May 1, depending on when the bruises heal...
March 1st/2004: Axes back in the works: Finally found time to make some axe
heads. Single edged are now in stock, and I'm working on
two additional types: double edged, and single edged
January 1st/2004: Now in our fourth year: I've been in business since 2000, so I guess
that makes this my fourth year. I'd like to send out
a big thank you to all my customers, past and present.
