An Tir Man's Armor Featured in Hollywood Films

Blacksmith and SCA member Ugo Serrano has successfully combined reality and fantasy by using his medieval craftsmanship to create armor and weapons used in the movies. Leslie Slape of the Daily News (Olympia, Washington) reports.

Serrano's work includes steel gauntlets featured in the program Witchblade, a staff from The Chronicles of Riddick, and many, many other articles including some used in the Capitol One commercial. Serrano recently moved to Longview from Los Angeles.
