At Global Effects we've been working with armor for over 25 years. Medieval armorers were the leaders of defense technology. Much like the defense companies of today. We've spent hundreds of hours wearing suits of armor and relearning how to hand make it just like the original; comfortable, easy to put on and light weight. Add that to the years of experience of making movie costumes and you get the best of both worlds.

Whether it's historical or futuristic armor Global Effects can show you a way to create it. So the next time you need armor, whether period or futuristic, give us a call (818) 503-9273. We'll suit you!
