Beneath the Armour

My Scalemaille will ruin any clothing beneath, so I made this shirt from a very sturdy cotton fabric. And then embroidered the lining, becase apparently I am that sort of crazy.
The Collar will be turned up and secured with a clasp while wearing the armour. But while without armour, I can fold the front like this.
I still have to finish some things, for example the metal claps have yet to arrive.

Embroidery for Ambra

I am still working on the Mage cap. Its going to be a long-term project. One thing I made is this embroidery for the back of the cap. I am going to add some beads to it after attaching it to the cap.

The old elven Helmet

Helmet01

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.

A friendship sealed with blood

“A promise that must not be broken.“

This is yet another page in the diary of my elven larp character, Elrian. It’s based on a scene that occurred on the Epic Empires 2015.

Planning further ahead

Ambra mod

With the warm robes for my mage character almost done I have started to plan the rest of the costume.

I have acquired a nice vougue pattern I will use for this project.
Fort the robes I plan to work with paint and stencils as well as embroidery.
Both will be mostly tone in tone with the robe since the goal is to create a texture on the fabric.
