Fantastical Friday: Spring LARP

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I love a good game & spring can be a wonderful time to get back into the outdoor games we love so much. It can be nice enough out to get away with lighter materials, though I will still keep my traveling cloak handy, because you never know what the weather really has in mind. The rebirth of the world around us makes a perfect setting if you happen to play a druidic type character, though in my case I tend to stick with the shady types, lol. I often find it difficult to locate just the right pieces for my characters at an acceptable price, but if you’re willing to persevere, or DIY, you will eventually have what you need. Armor is particularly difficult, should you be playing a fighter type, but some cardboard, duct tape & metalic paint can give you something that looks good on the cheap. Never give up your quest. 😉 Naturally, today’s concept is roguish & all of the items were found on Amazon, hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 😀

It’s been a while since I explored some of the LARP options available at Amazon, my usual site to explore for odds & ends I’m unlikely to find at any of my other favored shops. I do love my games & a little fantasy never hurt anyone, lol. 😉 You’ll find that most of these items are pretty practical & might even come in handy for a Renaissance Fair (not to mention various convention looks). I hope you get as much enjoyment out of an occasional break from the pressures of reality as I do, stay safe & stay sane. 😉

Fantastical Friday: Stylish Armor

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Armor selection can be difficult for a good character, even if you plan a DIY. Sometimes you just have to know someone who makes great pieces (if you do, I could use an introduction LOL). I found a few pieces that could easily coordinate well with a warrior or squire style, but as per usual I had a lot of difficulty tracking down many options with this sort of item. I found all of these pieces at Amazon & while some may be a bit more expensive than I usually like showcase about there is a lot of quality & craftsmanship that goes into the higher quality pieces. Game on! 😀

Fantastical Friday: A Darker Rogue

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

With it being a bit late to do a post for May the fourth be with you I decided to go with a LARP character idea instead. I have occasion to play very dark assassin characters, especially when I feel I am under a lot of stress, as I find it helps release some of my negative emotions in a safe way. So today I present a darker rogue & while it may not be advisable in a real situation to broadcast that you’re a killer the more blatant accessories are fun in a LARP anyway. The entire ensemble collection I present to you today I found at Amazon. I hope you’re all having a great time & game on!

Fantastical Friday: More Character Accessories

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Not only do I enjoy a good LARP but I also absolutely love accessorizing my characters. Fleshing out a character with the right pieces can enhance the play experience a lot, through mood setting if nothing else. Of course you can always add some back story to the more impressive treasures, like family a heirloom or an emotional connection to some past tragedy, which could even relate to what motivates the character to action. Sometimes it’s just nice to let loose & enjoy what I think of as an interactive fantasy or sci/fi novel. 😉 Naturally I found a few cool selections at Shop HalloweenCostumes.com which you can check out below. 😀

Character Accessories1) Pirate Gold Earrings ($3.99)
2) Dragon Tooth Necklace ($4.99)
3) Native Warrior Arrowhead Necklace ($5.99)
4) Dragon Armband ($7.99)
5) Watch Gear Ring ($8.99)

Fantastical Friday: These Boots Were Made for LARPing

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

If you’ve been following me for a bit you’re probably aware that I love a good LARP. You’ve probably also noticed that I don’t stick to one character for very long, I’m the kind of person that likes to branch out & have a myriad of experiences. Role play has long been, to me, like an interactive novel & I love it. Anyway, it can be important to not only have cool looking, but somewhat practical, foot gear to help accessorize a character. Like a lot of women, for some inexplicable reason, I love shoes, LOL. I was shopping around at Target & found a wonderful collection of boots that set my mind into a whirl of character possibilities. I haven’t fleshed out any of the characters in this post as part of the fun is applying your own imagination to the possibilities presented. It’s also true that a few of these are a bit more expensive than what I would normally like to pay, but they pulled at my heart strings so I felt that they should be included anyway. (Besides, maybe I can catch them on a clearance sale at some point, LOL)

LARPing Boots1) Women’s Quinn Fashion Boots ($23.98)
2) Women’s Kamari Fashion Boots ($26.98)
3) Women’s Lexie Wedge Bootie ($34.99)
4) Women’s Fringed Ankle Boots ($37.99)
5) Cover Islet W Booties ($39.99)
6) Women’s Gia-Mia Rock Star Studded Combat Boot ($44.99)
7) Journee Collection Women’s Boots ($54.99)
8) Women’s Katherine Leather Engineer Boot ($79.99)
9) Durango Women’s Fringe Western Boots ($169.99)

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: Mystic Jewels

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

It took me a while to decide on the direction to take this post, so in the end I’m just winging it, lol. Of course modern mysticism gives us many meanings & uses for various stones & other materials, but that’s not really what I’m getting into today. You don’t really need authentic gemstones or even quality jewelry for a good LARP, but both can enhance your immersion in the character & story arc. I found some wonderful pieces on Amazon.com that captured my imagination & set me to pondering backstories. I saved the best for last, that beautiful pearl sent my mind into a whirlwind of diverse maritime origin stories, lol. The least expensive is really only a bead, meant for jewelry DIY, but it fit the theme so well & was stunning to boot. 😉

Mystic Jewels
1) Sterling Silver Celtic Knot Amethyst Linear Drop Earrings1) Sterling Silver Celtic Knot Linear Drop Earrings ($20.62)
2) Sterling Silver Created Gemstone and Cubic Zirconia Filigree Bangle Bracelet ($43.61)

Fantastical Friday: LARP Concept Archer

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

I thought it was about time to return to the subject of LARPing & rather than focus on accessories as I did last time I put together more of a complete ensemble. While the costume looks great it does not come with the bow, leggings, or foot gear, so I did a little more shopping to finish up with the necessities for enhanced play. The costume, leggings & boots were found at Spirit Halloween & the weaponry on Amazon.com. I point out that the bow is real & should be handled with caution when using arrows (rubber tipped arrows are a little friendlier but can still be dangerous if not treated with care). The crossbow is a toy, but it can still fire so caution should be used with it as well. You can paint the sword any way you like or use it with it’s natural wood color, but it is best to have a melee weapon when the monsters/enemies are too close for the ranged bow & crossbow. 😉 Keep in mind that the wood is very solid so it’s best to keep strikes as close to a gentle tap as possible.

Archer1) Huntress Adult Womens Costume ($44.99)
2) Adult’s Black Liquid Leggings ($24.99)
3) Womens Black Gogo Boots ($34.99)

Archer Accessories1) Archery Bow the Delilah Long Bow ($39.99)
2) Wooden Crossbow with Quiver and Pack of 3 Arrows ($10.55)
3) BladesUSA 1609 Martial Art Hardwood Training Equipment 17.25-Inch Overall ($12.20)
