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.

The old elven Helmet

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.
