    So the first get together is coming up fast and my fingers are becoming numb from all the work i am doing at the moment, desperately trying to get some new garments out. While there are a few items in my selection that i reserve for myself i do have a far amount of spare bits and pieces, can people let me know if they require anything? I have probably 3-4 breastplates ranging from light leather to hardened, a few sets of gauntlets (various colours) and various tunics, hoods and cloaks.

    Nick is coming and will require a breastplate suitable for a starting Wood Elf Ranger. (As is is his first game I think we can allow him to wear it without the skill fist. After the weekend he will buy the skill for it anyway.) He will also need a tunic and hood. BTW I can't find the tunics and hoods you made for me, I hope you have them

    Do you not have a day job Delgado? I would love to have the time to make all of those things (a template for breastplate would be awesome, just saying ;))

    The Armour Archive (www.armourarchive.org) has a lot of armor patterns. Also, I've found that poster board, sharpie marker, scissors, and a friend can go a long way toward making a template for a breastplate.

    Delgardo is a cobbler by trade in real life, has a sewing machine and leather working tools on the work bench beside him all day! I am sure he will give you a leather breastplate template.

    I could stand there in my shop looking bored or i can do something and raise peoples interest. Have had so much interest in larping from the general public because i am working on a piece of armour or stitching up a tabbard.

    That's fantastic, any of them joining you? If it is your business, put a poster up and get some flyers to hand out

    Have been thinking about editing together a short movie and putting it on a little dvd player on repeat somewhere on display with a selection of gear. Should be able to get a good stock of footage from our first true outing next weekend.

    What about a pattern for leather breast plate that doesnt go past the waist? I've struggled to find one for a while now

    Depending on what types of patterns you are looking for, one can always adjust to size. Have been doing this for a while so i kind of take for granted some of the things i do automatically, but have always found that using cardboard boxes from a recycling bin as a great material to use for pattern making. Nothing compares to custom made and fitted armour!

    Yep also been hard at work learning heaps about sewing and making stuff cheaply, Aiming to have 15 tabards for the club by next weekend. 5 in blue and gold for the town guard uniform. 5 black and red, 5 green and white tabards will make up the sum for npc use.

    I do like the idea of tabards for npc/monsters. Makes a clear difference between them and players.

    We don't have a large number of players yet so it is good for us to be able to switch costumes for when we back up as NPC's. A simple cheap tabbard thrown over the top of your normal outfit can completely change the look of your character.

    I shall let our resident seamstress (@Zalithe Mal) know about this idea and hopefully it will be met with enthusiasm

    Tabards are a great idea, also another way to make a pattern for yourself is to wrap yourself in clingwrap and then duct tape or masking tape and draw the pattern on yourself (or get a friend to help) then you just cut yourself out and just need to add seam allowances to the pieces. @DraZuul Barra on the weekend we could make you a pattern that way if you would like?

    Those tabards look really cool. Another option for quick changes could be masks? They mess with peripheral vision but hey ... that allows another form of strategy.
     
  22. DraZuul Barra

    DraZuul Barra Myths & Legends

    Trust me, you will need peripheral vision when fighting more than one on one
