Hanbok-style Surcoat

I am working on a civillian garb for Iseul-Sung, my Palace Servant character. Like the rest of the costume it is inspired by traditional Hanbok.

I’ve read somwhere that Hanbok is partially glued together istead of sewn, but of course it doesn’t say where its glued. Still, lots of textile glue hidden in this costume.

I love this photo of my larp character Won Iseul-Sung. Thank you, Moritz Jendral.

I made the costume on a very short notice, and It turned out quite well. But I am already working on replacing all the bits an pieces I had to Improvise.

Wôn Iseul-Sung

There was this article about broken crown, a Larp I attended to. It has some really great pictures taken by Moritz Jendral, an there is even one of my character, Wôn Iseul-Sung.

I really like how it does not only represent Wôn really well, but also Makrabar culture in itself.

Calligraphy Practice

There is this beautiful way to write English in a writing system suitable for an East Asian character. It’s called square word Calligraphy.

I practiced a bit before the larp, but writing this is actually easier than it looks, so I was able to get into it very quickly.

During the larp I still used a reference and I need quite some time to write a sentence. But it’s so much fun. I definitely want to use it more often

Broken Crown IV was my most spontaneous Larp so far. I decided to attend about two weeks before the Larp and made a new Character in that period of Time. It worked out better than I’d hoped. And I need to wear coloured contact lenses more often.

The character’s costume is mostly inspired by Joseon hanbok with a few parts I borrowed from my Chinese-inspired character  and some general improvised stuff.

Thanks to Lena for taking the photo.

Sudden Hanfu Attack

So my Han Dynasty Markswoman is slowly turning a Ming Dynasty Markswoman. I made my fist Hanfu and a black felt hat. This is only the first Layer, both the main Hanfu and a warm coat are still in planning.

I am quite happy with how they turned out and I’m looking forward to making the rest of the costume.
