Basically what we've got here is a corset with pieces of tire tread bolted to it. I really think this piece
would function as real armor for a girl. Working with tire tread is very difficult. It is almost impossible to cut, with
the thick rubber and the numerous steel radials. Then once you do cut it, all those radials become sharp needles; not a
good thing to have on your skin. But, a sawz-all with the correct kind of blade will cut it, and you may also need a large
vice to hold it when you cut.
I have it modeled here by Honor of the Wolfpack Elite in the '09 DragonCon parade.
