So I joined a second LARP, Dystopia Rising. This one is a franchise LARP with a ton of different locations, so you should check it out. Tell them I referred you.

This is a character I would like to make in the future; I can’t get him out of my head and have all these ideas for him. I’m not sure it’s his precise name or not, but I’ve been calling him “Seven” in my head. He’s not literate so that’s probably fine.

I still feel weird drawing LARP characters.

Siira and her clothes. I want to do a costume change at some point so there’s a different outfit in there, as well as an early one where she had human-like feet still.

LARP stuff for Legacies. Top is the yet-unnamed pirate who I really want to be shirtless but probably won’t. Bottom is plans for what I want to do for Mirek. I really want to get him in robes but he refuses, so I’m considering some manner of long cloak instead.

I scanned a bunch of things today so there’s things in queue again! I’ve been so focused on work that I haven’t had much time.

Anyway! Here’s some costume designy stuff for my LARP character. I’m not playing him again til like February at absolute earliest so I’m considering making him a new outfit as though I have free time or something.

Hobby art: sewing!

I participate in a monthly LARP because seriously guys, improv + costume making + theatrical makeup + camping how can you go wrong. I have two characters at present, Boots-the-dhampari-undead and Mirek here. A friend from game gave me a TON of fabric so I made him a fancy vest.

My initial designs were based off of a ton of research + things that would look good on me + things my character would actually wear + things I had fabric for. I did a lot of sketches from medieval German clothing (endrani, the drow-like race, come from a Germany-based country) and stole bits I liked. I saw this type of sleeves occasionally and want to try something like that. I haven’t had time to finish up the sleeves but they’ll be removable and hopefully keep me a bit warmer; I was freezing all game! I did have a pattern for the torso of the vest, but I pretty much used it to cut the basic shapes and then tossed it aside and made things up. Overall pretty successful, I didn’t mess up the button holes for once!

I’d like to refine the cloak as well, I originally wanted it to have a cowl or mantle but ran out of time.

"I wanted to do something but then I ran out of time" is a pretty good summary of how my sewing projects work.

Costume and prop design for my LARP character, Mirek. I haven’t finished the vest yet but hope to get some nice shots of it this weekend.

throwtruckswithyourmind:

“Princess” character is getting a redesign. We’re moving towards a modern fairy princess idea instead of the snooty princess shown earlier. She had loose long hair before, then a ponytail so it would work with the wings, and now we’re thinking maybe a braid instead.

Note that the wings are a costume prop and she is not able to fly. :)

All my art this time!

Throw Trucks tumblr is our production blog now, so follow it if you’d like to see production (and pre-production, currently) progress on the game!!

Lue’s country’s clothing is based on medieval russian stuff a little bit. There’s some really cool designs there… this is all sketches of historical clothing and my attempts to adapt it to the universe.
