I have been moving forward a lot these past months. I moved to Graz, started working. While I am adapting to those changes in my life quite well (I still do a lot of costume Crafting in my free time, though I cannot show what I am working on yet), My Larp Character is not… Continue reading The Wandering Harpist
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.
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
For eight years, I always used elf ears made from Latex, some better, some worse, but for this season I got my first pair of silicone ears. The difference is striking. they look so much better, are comfortable to wear and much more sturdy. The only downside is, I feel they are a tad too… Continue reading Silicone Ears
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
I am working on a civillian garb for Iseul-Sung, my Palace Servant character. Like the rest of the costume it is inspired by traditional Hanbok. I’ve read somwhere that Hanbok is partially glued together istead of sewn, but of course it doesn’t say where its glued. Still, lots of textile glue hidden in this costume.
Moritz Jendral took these Photos during the Epic Empires 2016. He is a fantastic Larp Photographer, go check out his work!
