Viola keeps these bone dice in her pouch at all times. You never know when you might need to kill some time, make some coin, or roll to solve a dispute.

The dice are from @makeyourownmedieval and I was given them for “winning” the Skill at Arms at Abbey Medieval Festival… and they’re fab!

Here are a few dice games you can play at events (or at home in iso) with 2+ people:

– 42

– Farkle

– Fightin’ Dice

– Left-Right-Centre – Liars Dice

They’re all somewhat similar, but still a lot of fun! I found most of these online/in sub-Redits and then cleaned them up to make them more reader friendly, so if they look familiar, thank you for sharing so that I can also pass them on!

Feel free to share them!

Here is a little project I’ve been wanting to do for a long time: a small, painted belt shield (from Mytholon). I wanted to do this as a test to see how I would go painting on steel, and to add an accessory to my kit with IC symbolism.

I tried to take a picture at pretty much every stage. First I made sure the steel was clean of any dirt or oil, then I primed it using a matte grey etch primer. I drew the design on using grey lead pencil and painted it using regular acrylic paint. To finish it off I spray coated it a few times with a clear, satin sealer (I might spray it a few more times to be safe), and this is how it turned out!

I have to say, I even surprised myself a little bit with how well the hand turned out, and I’m really happy with it!

Okay but hear me out…

I’ve been away at Swordcraft: Blood and Gold spring Quest: The Swarm of Sudenburg and now I’m home and straight back into reality. Swordcraft is Australia’s largest LARP event and battle game with upwards of 500 people in attendance and I’m proud to be one of its executive.

Quest was a fantastic week filled with fort and field battles, political alliances, underground shenanigans, tournaments, TrollBall and heaps more, all while looking and feeling like a total bad ass.

I love getting to camp with all my friends for a week and I already have BIG plans for Quest next year.

I have a heap more picture on my Instagram @larplyyyyyyf if you want to check them out. Or follow @Swordcraft_LARP to find out more!

Character: Gwendolyn Bishop

Larp: Blackpowder and Bloodlines (game 3)

In games 1&2 of Blackpowder and Bloodlines I played my preist charcter, Genevieve Gillroy. This year I decided I wanted to experience different aspects that this larp had to offer as it will only we played over a 5 year story arc, with 1 game per year.

After a lot of planning, deliberation and changing of ideas, I came out with Gwendolyn.

Her outfit is pretty much completely made by me, including the layers underneath that you can’t see. The entire outfit consists of:

A white cotton chemise, white stockings, handmade stays, two pockets, a bum roll, a cotton underskirt, a grey linen skirt, a grey/brown coat (lined with linen), very slightly tea-dyed apron and wool arm warmers. My cute hat is from Mytholon.

Would you like a post showing all the different layers?

I made a spoopy flower crown for Halloween last week. I might have gone slightly overboard but I kind of love it.
