OK. So Leather Lad has a history of affinity to leather going way back. But you have to go with the flow and over the millenia he has amassed quite a collection of various protective garments. Just to blend in with the populace, you understand.
Here's a lovely chapeau very popular with the leather one several centuries back. Yes. It is gold.
Rather intimidating, don't you think? He *likes* that in a helmet.
You guessed it. Armor armor everywhere. Even for his faithful steed. Not that Leather Lad really needs it. But he does need to blend in with his companions.
Haven't got a clue? It's a gold stirrup. Really.
Next to leather, The End of Time really likes gold. It's so.....so....shiney.
