I make my costumes for a yearly LARP event that takes place here in Denmark. The event is called 'Krigslive' or 'Warlarp' if you will, and is mostly set in the Games Workshop's Warhammer Fantasy universe. That said, fantasy does not play a big part in the events, as it is usually humans vs. humans - The Empire (Inspired by the renaissance Holy Roman Empire) being the most common faction.

Right! So this year's Krigslive is over, and I got to show off my new costume which I (miraculously) managed to finish most of, and then some.

Here's the list of what I ended up with:
• New Hosen
• New Wams
• New Shirt
• New Arming Cap
• New 'Stockings'
• Small pouch (Fit well under the codpiece ;P)
• Playing Dice
• Game of Glückhaus (awesome time-killer!)
• Jewelry (lots and lots of jewelry!)

For next year I'll set the bar a bit lower for my own projects, as I've promised a friend I'll sew his Wams and Hosen in return for a part of a tent we're going to buy together. We're hoping to make it 'in-game' inside as well, so we'll be looking into making some furniture.

I also made a lot of new friends, which leads me to my second point of this journal: I've been recruited for a relatively new, but very high-end re-enactment group called Frie Rostocker Fähnlein, dealing with Landsknechts. They told me they wanted me for my facial hair, but I believe my work might have had something to do with it..

So, to summarise, expect steel weaponry and hand-sewn, vegetable-dyed landsknecht-awesomeness in the (probably not so near) future. :D
