The invisible Layers

There are parts of my Larp Costumes  that people never see, armour and overcoat cover it all. The grimy shirt has one purpose only: To protect my undershirts from the scalemaille mesh. The black dirt is from the armor, and I do not bother with cleaning it off every time, since it gets like this as soon as I wear the scalemaille. Only the collar, sleeves and lower hems can be seen beneath the armor.

The linen undershirt is my most recent one, and it uses a new base pattern I made. Collar, sleeves and hem will peek out under most outer layers, so I added some embroidery to them.

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.

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.
