The way the human children look at you, you would assume they have never seen an elf before. Granted, it isn’t often that you travel into cities. You prefer the tranquil sounds of the forest, away from the stench and chaos of busy human streets.
However, you have business with a certain wizard in town. So while your elven garb--Dark Elf Corset, tunic, and weapons--cause you to stand out amongst the crowd, you continue without raising a fuss. After all, they are only short-lived creatures. They don’t know any better than to stare.
Epic Armoury’s Dark Elf Corset is a top-grain leather underbust designed to protect the abdomen while making you look and feel dangerous on the battlefield. Adjustable by tightening the leather cords down the spine and along the sides, this corset design allows for a perfect fit. The stitching around the edges and the embellished stiff leather strengthen this corset’s structural stability and slim the wearer’s appearance, so with regular leather care you can expect this Dark Elf Corset to have a long lifetime. Use this Dark Elf Corset to create an intimidating statement or add some interest to your kit.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
