Fantastical Friday: Nerdy DIY Thoughts

Fantastical Friday

In the course of fleshing out a character for a LARP expedition or prepping a cosplay idea for a convention it’s incredibly obvious that you or someone you are paying is going to have to produce the items you require. While I will not be doing a DIY today I am exploring some thoughts for LARP characters, as I roleplay far more frequently than I cosplay. I was wandering about on Panda Hall‘s site because I enjoy their wide variety of items more specifically meant for creating jewelry & other fantastical pieces. 😉 The second item in this listing will require a bit more effort should you choose to make jewelry or item embellishments (like for a bag, belt, etc) from them as they do not come with pre-drilled holes & are not readily in a setting (depending on your needs), but they still look like fun tokens for various enchantments or character history reminders. I’m especially fond of #3 as potions are so very handy for game play & they are nice & small to render them near at hand for use (like on a necklace, bracelet, hooked to a belt, etc). This particular site is also nice for their wholesale sets, so if your friends like what you did you can make them something similar too, or sell your concocted items to other enthusiasts. 😉

DIY Ideas1) Natural Crystal Pointed Pendants, with Platinum Tone Brass Wire ($1.96/2pc)
2) Arrow Head Dyed Natural Agate Cabochons, Mixed Color ($6.15/5pc)
3) Mini Cute Small Cork Stopper Glass Jar Glass Bottles, Decorative Storage Pendants ($10.19/200pc)

Fantastical Friday: OMG Zombies!!!

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Still suffering from TWD withdrawal & anxiously awaiting the start of season 8. At least the spin-off Fear The Walking Dead will (hopefully) turn up in a few months, though the exact date has yet to be announced. Luckily there are always movies, both silly & serious, that can help fill the zombie-less void. In the meantime there’s also varied zombie related paraphernalia to entertain even the most avid people munching monster lover & with that being the case I have compiled a little wishlist from Amazon for you perusing pleasure. 😉 I’ve also included a link to a ridiculous short movie, titled OMG!! Zombies, (I might have shared this before, can’t remember & I’m not going to dig through my posts to be sure, LOL) that I made in SmallWorlds several years back. Keep in mind that there is no verbal chat in SW, so reading chat bubbles is the norm & I didn’t change the style, so it’s technically a silent film (beware headphones/earbud users, some of the sound effects have moments of loud). You can clearly see the heavy influence from Night of the Living Dead, lol.

OMG Zombies1) Zombie Temporary Tattoos ($3.89)
2) Super Heroes Hair Bows ($7.95)
3) X-Plore Gear Emergency Paracord Bracelets | Set Of 2| Flint Fire Starter, Whistle, Compass & Scraper/Knife ($8.99)
4) Bio Hazard Necklace Zombie Apocalypse ($9.55)
5) Don’t Open Dead Inside Walking Dead Earrings ($9.95)
6) Zombie Outbreak Response Team White Distressed ($9.99)
7) United States Zombie Hunting License Permit ($9.99)
8) Zombie Parts Mirror Danglers Chains Race Accessory Dead Walking($17.95)
9) Design Toscano Zombie Skull Cauldron Box ($20.60)

Fantastical Friday: Fantasy Month!

Some of you may be aware of how much I love my game, SmallWorlds, and some of you may not. Despite my passion for it I have never actually done a post about it & I thought it was time to change that. Now this particular game is a virtual world which makes it different from every other game I play & I have been part of its community since early July 2011. There are so many epic things to do & see, like the amazing missions crafted by players & some of the art, also created by players, is incredible (I wish I had those skills, LOL).

This year July was Fantasy Month, while the previous 2 years this themed month has been in August. I’ve compiled a few of my avatar’s most fantastical outfits to show you some of the versatility & hilarious themed pieces (still feel like I might should have taken a snap of one of my fairy outfits, but there is always next year). Many of you are likely to recognize my avatar, as I use her as my personal image all over my social media.

Fantastical Friday: How Do You Slay?

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

We all know I’m a nerd from way back, lol & lately I’ve been thinking about some of the many ways I like to geek out. So I compiled a little collection of potential LARP characters & threw in a cosplay for good measure. 😉 Keeping with the theme set forth in the title I also compiled a selection of mock weaponry to go with each. I have to admit that I am the least satisfied with the dance cane for Batgirl, it’s only 3 feet long & it looks more appropriate for a stage magician. But what can I do, they had no batarangs & nothing else fit the character as well, in the end it’s all about imagination anyway, lol. Anyway I found everything in this post at Spirit Halloween.

Fantastical Friday: A Rogue

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I like to play shady characters when I role play, I do play other classes but the vast majority fall under the category of rogue. The particular rogue I have put together today is of the thief variety & even more specifically a cat burglar/dungeon crawler. Skills with locks & traps come in very handy when adventuring, especially when you have a party to distract the monsters while you take the stuff, LOL. While it is quite warm in my area for some of the items in the ensemble, they are mostly there for blending into shadows when the need arises. Of course, it is difficult to adventure without a proper pack, it also comes in handy stashing your loot, LOL. I didn’t make quite as many jewelry selections as I usually do with my ensemble posts, but I was especially taken with the necklace as it struck me as the type of thing that a person who knows little else than greed would be attracted to. 😉 All of the items in this post come from Amazon.com. Wow, after spending all day working on this post, I just noticed that I forgot to get a dagger, LOL. If you LARP frequently this won’t be a problem, as you probably already have plenty of prop weapons & if you don’t it should be easy enough to find something with a good rating on Amazon.com.
