I still want to bulk buy these and adonize batch pink.
After not winning anything at the cosplay pagent at GaymerX2 (bullshit) I undertook the task of putting my Garrett cosplay on my mannequin.
So HERE have some epic detail shots!
Pictures of my pirate costume as requested :) More epic ones will come after the LARP
The dress and coat is from the Royal Danish Theater’s annual costume sale.
The hat is handmade by me from a generic beach hat
Jewellery, belts and all the extra trinkets are thrifted
The attentive follower will see that this is indeed the dress that has adorned my wall for almost a year :) Finally wearing it! Bought it for this LARP :P
Annual… costume… sale…
Alright my lovelies, I’ve had enough delays lately to recognize I need to scale back for a while. I’m taking a hiatus on the writing part of this blog, though I will continue to find a post larp photos and costume inspiration for you all. (I’m entering the last year of my computer science degree!) I might also put together a master post with links to, say, all my posts on shoes, hats, facial hair, etc. But no promises. Because the whole point of this hiatus is to not give myself more work xD
May your adventures be grand and your charm rolls grandiloquent. I’ll see you on the other side.
A tennis player paused, mid-game, to retrieve their navy blue felted hat. Their opponent watched carefully as the small floppy item returned to it’s place.
The woman crushed the beret on her head just so with a pair of headphones. The tank was going to be loud.
The Carlist General cocked his red beret to the side, and made one last pass at his mustache. This would be a battle of words, but a battle, nonetheless.
They twirled the thin leather brim of the felted wool hat around one finger. There were streaks of ultramarine blue on the brim now, a bit of carelessness. They could afford it. Their patron was beneficent.
The beret can be traced to the felted hats of the Basque country between France and Spain. Felted headgear can be traced back to at least 3200 BCE, but much of the modern military usage stems back to the Carlist Wars, the wars of succession between Isabella and Carlos in the early 1800s. (source) Since that time, they’ve become common in both pop culture and modern military uniforms.
