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 wind, for example. Ever tried posing for a photo while you are literally being swept off your feet?
But then wind is awesome in photos…
This dress was made by Celefindel creations a few years back, I made her an elven battle dress in exchange. I’ve had it with me on most Larps, but since I mostly wear armour, there have been no photos until now.
While I was away, attending the Epic Empires 2016 the last of last year’s photos were put online. The photos were taken by Moritz Jendral.
Slowly, I am learning how to use my Camera. These are quite flawed, but I like the mood in these two Portraits of Elrian Tirithien, my Larp character.
Almost every part of the costume is self-made.
Thanks to Yumi for assisting me.

Because it was really cold last summer I dug out this old winter robe I made years ago, but never had used.
Afterwards I decided It could use a makeover. Nothing fancy, maybe I will add a few glass beads later.
I am designing an Elven Helmet to replace this one. I’ve already on a basic design, but the details are not jet finished.
Also, I’m making some changes to the scale armour itself, mostly shortening the whole thing and adding sleeves.
This is the current master plan:
Elrian’s diary is a project I started two years ago, and its original purpose was to collect plot information the character acquired during role play conventions.
But after while I started to put in personal stuff that went through my characters head. Its purpose is now to collect both information about plot (which will be written in normal writing) and personal notes (written in Tengwar). And I am planning to make its style a mix of the current design and River Song’s Diary from Doctor who.
