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 willย still keep myย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Naturally, today’s concept is roguish & all of the items were found on Amazon, hope you enjoy it as much as I do. ๐Ÿ˜€

I hope you get as much enjoyment out of an occasional break from the pressures of reality as I do, stay safe & stay sane. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 Amazonย & while some may be a bit more expensive than I usually like showcaseย about there is a lot of quality & craftsmanship that goes into the higher quality pieces. Game on! ๐Ÿ˜€

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

With it being a bit late to do a post forย 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 Iย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Naturally I found a few cool selections at Shop HalloweenCostumes.comย which you can check out below. ๐Ÿ˜€

Character Accessories1) Pirate Gold Earrings ($3.99)
2) Dragon Tooth Necklace ($4.99)
3) Native Warrior Arrowhead Necklace ($5.99)

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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.
