11  Pirates Ahoooy! in Costumes: Completed Projects by Nymla on: July 15, 2013 04:52:22 PM
Realised I hadn't posted any pics of my pirate costume. This might be one of my favourite costumes I've made. Might be cause it's also so fun to be a pirate Cheesy
There was a pirate themed party at my universitys student pub, and me and some friends got dressed up properly.
Before the party we had a really fun pirate dinner pre-party, eating like pirates, being gross haha. And painting fake tattoos on eachother. We even made a song that we performed later that night! Oh gosh, it was a really fun night that one.

Anyway, I made this outfit!

The leather tricorn hat I made.

And my outfit.

Me and the crew! ^^ We also had a big ass flag, made mostly by my friend Linda Lundstrm.

We all had a reeaally good time, and this pirate party seems to be turning into a tradition Smiley
Why am I talking so much about the party, this is supposed to be about the costume o.O
Oh well, thanks for looking!

12  My Papier Mach Masks in Completed Projects by Nymla on: July 15, 2013 03:46:02 PM
Wasn't sure where to put these! Maybe they should be in the costumes category?
Anyway, they are all masks made with my own sort of papier mach.
They were made a couple of years ago for a medieval market. OOoooohh I miss making these kind of organic things, have to get into that again! Smiley
Getting so inspired by all sorts of medieval and viking crafts at the moment! So I had to share these.

Enjoy.  Grin

The troll! I want to make more trolls, trolls are awesome.

The sheep! With real sheep wool Smiley

The rooster! The red is leather, feathers are feathers and the comb is filled with linen fibres.

And a more simple half mask with medieval inspired patterns.

I really want to make a badger mask! :O Badgers are way cool.

Thanks for looking!

13  My Steampunk Adventurer Costume - Lotsa' pics here! in Costumes: Completed Projects by Nymla on: July 14, 2013 05:58:33 AM
Ooh Craftster! Been a really long time since I was here. I missed you, there is so much awesome stuff to look at here! So I've decided to be back! xD

I've been really busy studying prop making at university in the northern parts of Sweden and this June I graduated.
So I kinda wanted to show the project I've been working on and putting a lot of time and effort into recently.

We were given the task to plan and execute a project, using our skills in prop making. And I decided to make a steampunk adventurer character with clothing and props.

I have written more about the character and why I wanted to do it etc (also lots of progress shots) in my journal/blog (hope it's okay to post this link?): http://www.nymla.se/?page_id=11

Anyway, below is the result of my work. Photographer was my set designer friend Evelina Wallin, and I was in front of the camera (scary Tongue).

(Owww, I don't get why the pictures end up so small? Before I upload them they are bigger but when I add them to my picture hosting, they shrink somehow! Help? :/)

Thank you so much for looking!

16  Buboes the Gasmask in Costumes: Completed Projects by Nymla on: September 24, 2010 03:08:31 PM
I dont know where to post this either! Is there a category for masks? Tongue

Well, this is a mask I made out of leather. Mmmm yes. The sewing took quite a while. Its a sort of gasmasky creature thing... Yes, it is indeed.

Those trunks/tubes-thingies are detachable through the inside of the mask and the size is adjustable with straps.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

20  The Ogham God in Costumes: Completed Projects by Nymla on: July 30, 2009 03:29:18 PM
Hi there!  Cool

This is a God.
I have not yet decided a name and history for this God.
But it sure is a God.

I made this mask/headpiece for a contest with the theme "The Ogham". Initially the Ogham alphabet consists of twenty characters. The characters were named after trees or plants and were specifically designed for carvings in stone and wood.
The ogham signs are carved all over those horns.
So for now it is an Ogham God.

Me and a friend are now planning to make more masks and such with the same theme.
Build up stories for them all, how they are connected to each other.
Maybe we get to show them at an exhibition.

So stay tuned Wink

Oh and its made of: horns, sticks, beads, seashells, leather, sculpey clay, feathers, plaster etc.
I think its a little hard to see in that upper left picture, but theres dreamcather-like thingies tied on the horns.
And I kinda always say this but it looks better in real life, it's easier to see what the heck is going on.

Photography and God made by: Me
Model: Linda Lundqvist
Assistant: Lisa Lundqvist
Cloak made by: Rikard Jansson

Damn this description got long.
Thanks for looking and reading! :O

PS. We were in a cave. DS

Here comes the pics, you will have to right click them and choose view image if you're gonna see anything ^^
