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 as soon as I wear the scalemaille. Only the collar, sleeves and lower hems can be seen beneath the armor.

The linen undershirt is my most recent one, and it uses a new base pattern I made. Collar, sleeves and hem will peek out under most outer layers, so I added some embroidery to them.

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 leather and the lining are already finished.


A Minstrel’s Dress

And done! No one will ever notice all those glass beads on the skirt…

The waistcoat alone took an eternity to make, but I am quite happy how it turned out.

Battledress für Gwaloth

Es hat sich ergeben das ich mit meiner Freundin Celefindel ein Tauschnähen mache, Sie näht mir ein Elbisches Nachtgewand und bekommt dafür von mir ein Battledress für ihre Noldo Gwaloth.

Als Vorlage diente hierfür Thranduil aus der Hobbit Verfilmung.

Der Stoff wird der selbe sein wie mein eigenes, nur werde ich ihn Gwaloths Farbkonzept entsprechend rot färben.
