The Wandering Harpist

Moringaard3.jpg

I have been moving forward a lot these past months. I moved to Graz, started working.

While I am adapting to those changes in my life quite well (I still do a lot of costume Crafting in my free time, though I cannot show what I am working on yet), My Larp Character is not as lucky. Elrian has become a respected leader but is now finally past the point where all those responsibilities are starting to crush her. Moringaard with all my fellow elves was a very emotional and combat intense larp. And still, I cannot remember when I had this much time for music on a larp.

Also, “Harp-triforce” is now a specific piece of furniture.

Thank you, Eva Jaksch, for taking these photos!

 

Embroidered Rain Cloak

After last year’s very rainy Epic Empires everyone is doing new Cloaks, coat and capes.

This is mine, still a WIP and one of my larger embroidery project.

 

I will be adding a thin water-proof membrane between the layers of wool, and the whole cloak will be relatively stiff, with large barely visible embroidery in the front and in the back.

Tirithion Crest

Tirithion

Since Elrian now has a new Surname I started to add the crest of house Tirithion to her costume.
And to everything else.

This is also the first time I used this really old silver yarn. It looks great, but gets torn all the time.

Elven Betrothal: Elassar and Indhoriel

I made this for a letter I wanted to send.  It started out as a watercolour painting, but when I was half way finished I looked at the faces and thought It does not look like the people I am trying to portray at all. So I scanned it, edited it in photoshop with help of Photographs taken by Daniel Schmitt. Then I printed it again, edited some smaller details and sent it away to be done with it.

Somehow I now dug it up again and finished it in Photoshop.

Elbische Schlachten-szene WIP

Das sich ohne vorherige planung aus ein bisschen Gekrakel etwas ergibt ist bei mir selten, umso mehr weil in diesem Falle gleich 13 Personen im Bild sind.

Irgendwann während des skizzierens wurden aus den Elbenkriegern die Tirithion-Krieger, die gegen Alethatar-Verräter kämpfen. Und damit ich selbst nicht den Überblick verliere habe ich sie farbig markiert.

Stock vor allem: Tursiart, Angelasasser-stock und Linzstock.
