Blog Link – LARP Couture

I was just introduced to LARP Couture, a blog about LARP costuming. I was only introduced to it today, but I already love it. (Turns out the friend who introduced me to it found the link on Lizzie Stark’s blog.)

I didn’t actually mean to turn this blog into something primarily about costuming- although I am mentally planning a post describing one of my favorite LARP prop projects (a bow and quiver set made of a metal closet door track and fake leather fabric intended for upholstery). However, I can’t resist sharing this link.

And short pieces of research on various subjects, from Scottish kilts to plague doctor masks to blue jeans. Images that make great inspiration for costuming.

I particularly like how many of the posts contain series of links to places where one can purchase the items mentioned in the post- along with prices, for easy comparison shopping. I’ve also found a lot to keep me entertained in the “Things I Love Thursday” posts.
