Elrian – EE 2016

This Photo was taken by Nummi after a sucessful battle inside an enemy camp. Looking at it I see so many things I want to add to the armour.I like the colour contrast of the black and green gate.

3rd half-time

This is the infamous “third half-time” that usually happens right after the final battle. Very serious roleplaying going on right now.

This is from 2015, but it looked pretty much the same last saturday.

The old elven Helmet

Helmet02

In 2009 I decided that if I wanted to fight in LARP battles, I needed a helmet. But It’s hard to come by a helmet for an elven character. Having one custom made was not an option at the time since I was still in school.

I made this one with the help of my mum and a few friends. I bought a cheap steel helmet and we polished it and added build the leather corona. I then sent the components to another friend, Mimin, for clinching.

He has is own crafting blog, check it out here.

I wore it for six years, though it always looked a bit odd, due to the steel helmet being a bit too large for my head. I only had a new helmet custom-made this year, so its retirement time for the old one.

And since I never took photos of it, it was now or never.  It looks quite beaten up by now, the leather parts are deformed and frayed.
