1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Red riding hood and the huntsman, Batman, and some kind of evil monk on: August 10, 2017 11:24:00 PM
This was the second year at Castlefest for us. It's a medieval/fantasy festival in the Netherlands. This year we went as red riding hood and the huntsman and our son went as Batman. Totally unrelated, I know, but I just make him the costume he wants (as long as it's apropriate for Castlefest of course). He is a big fan of super heroes, so Batman was a logical choice for him.

Here are the three of us together.

Me and my boyfriend.

Some action shots of Batman. He took his role very serious.

With serious I mean really, really serious.

I also made this costume for a friend of us. The orb on the stick glows when it's getting dark. It's made with a solar light for the garden.

Thanks for looking!
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Wizard glowing orb and necklace on: July 07, 2017 04:37:00 AM
This August we are going to a fantasy festival here in the Netherlands called Castlefest. And if course I am the one responsible for the costumes. This is part of my first costume (I will post a complete costume picture when he comes for a fitting). My friend wanted to be a wizzard with a monk-like robe and a large wand with a glowing orb. The whole costume cost me about 30 Euro and 1,5 days of work.

I think the pictures really don't do it justice but this is the wand. I made it wit a solar garden lamp so it glows when the night falls. I made it so that you can still remove the battery if it's needed. I used a stick I found in the woods for the base. To create the top I used craft foam with metal wire wrapped in aluminum foil. I glued it with a hot glue gun on the stick. I layered all the aluminium foil with hot glue. Crazy, I know, but it works like  a charm. I also used the glue gun for the details on the lamp. After that I painted it black, rub'n buffed the whole thing and I added some moss. I really love how it turned out!

This is the necklace. It's about 8 cm large. I made it with Fimo and, of course, rub'n buff.
