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…

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…

Silicone Ears

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…

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. 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…

Wood Elf basic Shirt

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).

Introducing Solufleece

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…
