Pictures of your Garb & Gear!

Recommended Posts

Here's some pics of the custom sword I got from Ateliers Nemesis and the sheath I made for it. I'm going to enchant the sheath with something from my Ornamenter repertoire, as soon as we figure out what slot it takes up...

It's made from a vegetable tanned belly, waterformed around the blade of the sword, and lined with blue felt. The throat is made of a separate piece of leather, with a celtic concho, lots of stamping and dyed blue. I hand-sewed the throat on after super gluing it in place. The back is all hand stitching as well. No rivets anywhere, I'm so proud of myself. :)

The hand tooling on the blue piece is sexy.

Ivan's new belt:

That stuff in the background is a new sheath for Ivan's dagger (not at all happy with the one I wore in Feb) and a sheath for a sword Zach (Octavius) bought. Both have been wet molded and are drying overnight before dying, lining and sewing them.

The hanger is cut out on my bench - it's on my list man, I'll have it at ARCON if you're going to be there. The scabbard, I haven't gotten Jim's sword from him yet. :(

 

Also: POST PICS! No jibba-jabba without pics!

Rich's frog, for the above Palnatoke sword:

It may prove to hang too low for comfort, in which case I'll take out that snap ring and just rivet the hanger to the frog with the single brass ring. You'll have to try it on and see how you like it. It's certainly more convenient with the release, though.

Here's a better look at the candles I found these ones at Michaels. They're fairly bright too!

The table itself I found in my grandmother's shed - it used to be painted eggshell white. I also found the picnic basket in there as well. The brown top is from the Christmas Tree shop.

Very nice! And none of it will be too hard to move/transport, either, so well done. :)

I heard you like props. So I put some props in your encampment, yo.

 

This is some of the stuff I've collected over the past winter break.

I went to a vintage shop today and picked up this jewelry case. it's pretty cool and wasn't too expensive. the large case is about 6x4x4 and it holds to smaller cases on the inside.

Photo quality is pretty bad for some reason... but I made this as a gift for my little sisters graduation this weekend.

 

It's a byzantine weave bracelet. It's a little bit longer than a 20 oz pop bottle.

Apparently this is my new hobby when I've insomnia.

 

Silver plated Japanese 6 in 1 bracelet. I finished it about 20 minutes ago.

 

Also I can't seem to get my camera to render decent pictures at close range. Either that or the blurriness is due to a bad combination of camera flash and florescent light in my desk lamp.

Thumbs of various pics of the drake mask I made for Novitas; I just screenied my facebook album.

Hoping for critiques as the larp I attended before this was not nearly as involved on the costuming, and since it

said Drakes had "very difficult" on their costume requirements, I want to make sure this is acceptable. :)

 

The bottom jaw is a seperate piece, and yes it does move when I talk :)

 

No, I will not be wearing the old-lady shawl over my head, it'll be a black hood. The ugly orange shawl was just the nearest

thing I could get my hands on :)

 

First three images: just the plastiform mold.

Next four images: after the rubbercoating. You could chuck it down a hallway and it'd bounce, lol.

Last images; finished product.

 

From start to finish, whole thing only cost about $25.
