Thanks for the lovely comments,
A fourage pouch is originally meant to use when gathering berries/herbs. You can fold it and attach it to your belt. When you unclip the cover the bag folds out. I might be able to make a tutorial later.

It had been a while since I made a costume for myself instead of for a customer.

Her name is Elana and she's my newest larp character. An adventurer and researcher who travels the continent and tries desperately to save the world.

The costume exists of:
- Storebought shoes and shirt (seriously you can't sew agains a beautiful white tunic on sale.
- A blue velvet coat with a ribbon in the back for easy size adjustments.
- Brown cotton canvas pants
- A dufflebag made out of linen and leahter I stripped from a couch. The lining is felt which makes it very sturdy.
- A broad hipsash made in a fake suede
- A thin leather belt I made
- A broader leather belt with accesories (a ring loop, two clips that attach to my daggerholder, a small leather pouch, a bookholder and a fourage pouch-a folded pouch which you can open up to make a bigger pouch)
- A handovered book in leather.
- A tiny (functional) book necklace.

Project Name: portfolio shoot
Project Link: -
Brief Description:
I had a whole bunch of costumes for which pictures were long overdue. Since I had to complete a portfolio last week I decided on planning a photoshoot. Luckily I found two friends willing to post in the outfits Smiley And I'm ridiculously happy with the results.
I certainly had to ''keep an eye'' on this project (what else do you do with photography?)

Research Project Name: Leather gadget belt + matching gadget holders
Team: Multimedia
Brief Description:
This research project is both an attempt to make something entirely new for myself as well as a way to brush up my leatherworking skills. It will be a belt for my new adventurer character and include several ''gadget'' pouches. Like a drop pouch, pocket watch pouch and maybe even a teacup holder. All made out of the same kind of leather so it will be a perfect set.
Materials: Leather and fabric
New techniques: water hardening leather.
