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…

Coastal cliff shooting

Every time I go hiking I end up thinking: You could do a great costume shooting, with all those beautiful mountains. So this time we packed a dress, stopped on a moor that’s right on a seaside cliff. It was Cyranil’s first time as a photographer, and we underestimated a lot of thing. Like the…

Embroidery (usually hidden by hair)

Usually the Embroidery on the back of this robe is hidden by my hair. Not sure what drove me to put my character’s crest there. Thank you to Liz-Sai/Mioon for taking the Photo.

Elven Hood

This woolen hood for my elven Larp charakter has already proven its worth more than once. But I have not managed to take decent photos of it up until now. The Rain started just before it got too dark too shoot, we really got lucky. Thanks to Liz-Sai/Mioon for taking the Photos

Simple Elven Tunic

Today I finished the Satin tunic I started a few weeks ago. I have loads of robes and stuff, but I had only one basic tunic until now. The Tunic fits me far better than the dummy, so naturally its looks a bit weird on the photo

Sewing… six days left

Four days have passed with me virtually doing nothing. Or at least nothing to finish the garments I need in August. At least I started almost everything by now. The first robe I started a while back (blue cotton satin), but my sewing machine suddenly decided I would take no more silver yarn… and the…

Elven Armour

Today Nuryia an I took another try to get some nice Photos, this time in scale armour. It weights about 10 kilo in total, both helmet and plated shoulders are missing as well as leather bracers an gloves. The garment consists of a short robe, a modified hakama and a cape. It is far from…

Perlenkragen und Schuppenrüstung

Gestern ging, von mir selber unbemerkt, ein weiteres Projekt zu Ende, worüber ich einerseits froh (endlich fertig), andererseits traurig (was soll ich denn nun machen?) bin: Der Perlenkragen von meinem Festtagsunterkleid ist fertig. Der Unterschied ist zu den letzten Fotos ist nicht so wirklich erkennbar, da es tatsächlich nur reste waren die ich gestern noch…

Elbisches Seidenkleid im Rohbau

Nach ziemlich genau einer Woche ist die Seidenmalerei fertig. Nachdem das Gutta getrocknet war, habe ich mich ans anmalen gemacht. Dafür habe ich zwei selbst gemischte blautöne verwendet die ich auch noch unterschiedlich verdünnt habe. Trocken sah das dann so aus: Nach dem Fixieren und Waschen habe ich dann heute die Schnitteile ausgeschnitten und zusammengenäht….
