Our otter breastplate kit makes a striking addition to your outfit and you can choose either genuine otter fur or simulated otter fur. Traditional Dancer's Otter Breastplate Kit materials include red broadcloth for backing the fur, 16 metal backed mirrors, 64 tin cones, 1.5 ounces of red tip plumes and size "F" Nymo thread for sewing.
