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?

It was a beautiful day last Saturday, so John and I went out to Red Bluff at Black Rock in Victoria for a bit of an impromptu photoshoot by the beach. I’d never been there before and the rocks and view absolutely blew me away. I felt like I was in a fairy tale. 

Yellow dress is the Red Elise by Armstreet
Green Dress is the Uma Dress by Mytholon
Brooches by Make Your Own Medieval
I made the beads myself from a combination of thrifted necklaces

Last week I had to stay home sick from work and I figured, when is there a better time to work on a new project?? So behold, a short renaissance houppelande with scalloped dagging on the sleeves. It’s made from blue wool, purple upholstery velvet and lined with a black and blue floral brocade. I also think the little square buttons are super cute. I only wish I had about 10 more to add to it.

All up this project took me about 11 hours to make and it’s probably the most professional looking thing I’ve ever produced. Needless to say, I’m a bit proud of myself.

Also, bonus blue leather belt with hand stamping and renaissance buckle and decorated hat, both of which I made the weekend before. I’m so happy to be feeling inspired enough to make things again!
