Leading an Army

Thank you for Kelric and Nummi for catching these moments during the Final Battle of the Epic Empires 2017

These are the only pictures with the finshed armour surcoat, which proved to be resisant to dirt, fake blood and everything else. By tha way, this scalemaille is waterproof, and it probably saved my life, because it was raining nonstop.

I led an army on a Larp this summer, and it went terribly wrong, in almost every way. In the end we had some good fights, and some of my mistakes led to a mighty epic conflict.

But If I ever do something like this again, I need to learn how to shout first. Apparently my voice is not as loud as I thought it was.

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.

Fairy Faces

Elrian met some Fairies and she remembers their faces- in her diary.

Mage cap WIP

 

The first part of the embroidery for the mage cap is done, now I just have to sew it to the felt cap and make more embroidery. I love embroidering on organza, a technique used by Michelle Carragher to embellish the game of thrones costumes.

 

Masquerada: Songs and Shadows

Masquerada: Songs and Shadows released two weeks ago, and it’s an amazing storytelling experience! The game is not flawless, but I enjoyed it from the first to the last moment, especially the detailed world building and the diverse cast with their convincing voice-acting. And it inspired me to paint. It also makes me want to cosplay, which puts one more costume on my want-to-make list.

The painting is in gouache on Chinese paper, which is quite different from my usual watercolour workflow.
