I am still working on the Mage cap. Its going to be a long-term project. One thing I made is this embroidery for the back of the cap. I am going to add some beads to it after attaching it to the cap.
The first part of the embroidery for the mage cap is done, now I just have to sew it to the felt cap and make more embroidery. I love embroidering on organza, a technique used by Michelle Carragher to embellish the game of thrones costumes.
This was in 2010. Nepenthe was an NPC apprentice mage on the “Zeit der Legenden” The costume was completely improvised, since I was originally supposed to play a different character. Since I have been asked about the hood a lot – It’s not even a real hood, but really just a rectangular piece of linen cloth.… Continue reading Nepenthe

My Inquisitor’s Tarot Card. This took a while. I tried to mirror some of my first playthrough’s choices in here: The Night Enchanter’s Spirit Blade, Heavy Armour, Solas’ Necklace (an the wolf from his romance card) as well as the Orb that “misplaced” the anchor on her hand. Credit goes to Elandria for the hands.

I am planning a second Larp character, a mage named Seren Yimris. And this is what she will be wearing. The Costume will consist of a thin green Robe, a silly hat and this… thing. Its a second Robe, made from hand-dyed noil silk, lined with wool (I need it to be warm) and hand… Continue reading Mage Robes in Progress
