Armour Surcoat – Almost Done

The Armour surcoat I made for this summer’s Epic Empires quickly became one of my favourite pieces of Costume.

I have not managed to take good pictures of the finished surcoat, so here are some WIP photographs. The surcoat still lacks clasps here, and the sides are not yet closed. But all the embroidery, the leather and the lining are already finished.

 

Coastal cliff shooting

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.

This woolen hood for my elven Larp charakter has already proven its worth more than once. But I have not managed to take decent photos of it up until now. The Rain started just before it got too dark too shoot, we really got lucky.

Thanks to Liz-Sai/Mioon for taking the Photos

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 photo was taken by Moritz Jendral

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.

Elven Hood

We bought this really thick woolen cloth to make a wind-proof hood for an elven larp character. The fabric is more similar to felt than normal cloth, and I really enjoyed the challenge of making the pattern. It is sewn by hand since no sewing machinge would take it. We are going to add embroidery later, but for now it is ready to wear.
