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.

Wow, this is perfect. I've never heard of a fourage pouch- is it for gathering things? I would be interested if you could say more about how it works/how you made it!
Really nice ensemble and great pictures

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.

Ooo cool looking and practical! Im getting into foraging more and have been wanting to make a utility belt for  awhile so a tutorial would be appreciated but no pressure. I can see how it works anyway. I supposed youd want a stiff fabric for the bag. I wonder what if it would need special treatment or a different bag for collecting seaweed.. Very inspiring anyway Smiley

This could have been numerous posts. There's so much detail, and skill that has gone into this costume. Im thinking to myself, that outfit looks so functional. Why don't we dress this way?
Simply splendid!
