How to: In-character books

I’ve been asked many times on how to craft an In-character book. I am not someone with the tenancy to write a book, but over the years I managed to fill over a hundred pages with Elrian’s thoughts, stories and songs. So, if you are looking to start your own in-character diary, or spellbook, or…

Gilwen’s Mandolin

Gilwen’s Mandolin, now Lendor’s Mandolin, is now painted to reflect the previous owner’s style. I used Citadel Paints because I am not good with acrylics and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. Now it only needs its new strings. Luthron and Gilwen both died tragically while on a scouting mission. This is a…

The Wandering Harpist

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…

Elven leather bracers with silver rank insignia

My bracers are finished. The etched nickel silver insignia signify her rank in the military. The weathering effect was more of an accident with the scrubbing side of a sponge, but one that earned said sponge a permanent place in my leather tool kit.

Elven Leather bracers

My Elven warrior finally has some arm protection now! My boyfriend did most of the crafting here, since he is far better in leather working than me. I did the design and the finish. They are technically till WIP, since the metal rank insignia is still missing on the tip.

Elven Felt Pouch

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.

Embroidered Rain Cloak

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…

The Tear-lakes of Celendria

  Being the first of my two planned winter Larps this Year, Celendria‘s Winter Feast did not only have excellent food, but also a beautiful ceremony at dawn that symbolized Unity within the City’s different Elven People. The Photos were taken by Wiri Pusch.

Facing ever onward

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…
