The invisible Layers

There are parts of my Larp Costumes¬† that people never see, armour and overcoat cover it all. The grimy shirt has one purpose only: To protect my undershirts from the scalemaille mesh. The black dirt is from the armor, and I do not bother with cleaning it off every time, since it gets like this…

Armour Surcoat – Almost Done

The Armour surcoat I made for this summer’s Epic Empires quickly became one of my favourite pieces of Costume.

Leading an Army

Thank you for Kelric and Nummi for catching these moments during the Final Battle of the Epic Empires 2017 These are the only pictures with the finshed armour surcoat, which proved to be resisant to dirt, fake blood and everything else.

Fairy Faces

Elrian met some Fairies and she remembers their faces- in her diary.

Every time I go hiking I end up thinking: You could do a great costume shooting, with all those beautiful mountains. So this time we packed a dress, stopped on a moor that’s right on a seaside cliff. It was Cyranil’s first time as a photographer, and we underestimated a lot of thing. Like the…

Elrian – EE 2016

This Photo was taken by Nummi after a sucessful battle inside an enemy camp. Looking at it I see so many things I want to add to the armour.I like the colour contrast of the black and green gate.
