This belt pouch is made from felt and dupion silk, and took me about three days. Its tailored to hold a fist-sized conch horn. I didn’t have a plan for this before I started but instead just made it up during the process.
After last year’s very rainy Epic Empires everyone is doing new Cloaks, coat and capes. This is mine, still a WIP and one of my larger embroidery project. I will be adding a thin water-proof membrane between the layers of wool, and the whole cloak will be relatively stiff, with large barely visible embroidery… Continue reading Embroidered Rain Cloak
From 2009 to 2017, is has been a long journey for this character. Elrian started out as a princess, now she is a simple soldier. I’ve played her in two different groups, lead other player in battle, used her to overcome my fear of speaking in front of people. The Surcoat is this year’s adition… Continue reading Facing ever onward
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… Continue reading The invisible Layers
The Armour surcoat I made for this summer’s Epic Empires quickly became one of my favourite pieces of Costume. I have not managed to take good pictures of the finished surcoat, so here are some WIP photographs. The surcoat still lacks clasps here, and the sides are not yet closed. But all the embroidery, the… Continue reading Armour Surcoat – Almost Done
Sometimes I spend months making a really fancy piece of costume, but sometimes its just time to top up on shirts. Like, you can never have enough shirts, right? I made this for a friend, Imrath, whose character is a Tolkienesque wood elf (without the beard, of course).
For Years I did not use embroidery fleece or stich&tear, I either painted my designs directly onto the fabric or improvised using chinese paper. But ever since I discovered Solufleece, I have not done a single embroidery wihtout. I was always afraid to damage my embroidery while removing the backing, but Soluvlies will dissolve on… Continue reading Introducing Solufleece
My Scalemaille will ruin any clothing beneath, so I made this shirt from a very sturdy cotton fabric. And then embroidered the lining, becase apparently I am that sort of crazy. The Collar will be turned up and secured with a clasp while wearing the armour. But while without armour, I can fold the front… Continue reading Beneath the Armour
I love this photo of my larp character Won Iseul-Sung. Thank you, Moritz Jendral. I made the costume on a very short notice, and It turned out quite well. But I am already working on replacing all the bits an pieces I had to Improvise.
