I've started this blog to detail my costume making, from the initial concept through research and design and finally creation.
My other blog, Tea and Crumpets, is all about my day to day ramblings and my love of vintage clothes and I thought that this would be a good place to ramble on about costumes.
The outfits I make are generally for Live Action Roleplaying events. They're usually historically based, but with a fictional edge, making them more akin to theatre costumes than reenactment clothes.
Right now I'm planning outfits for a group of C15th characters, a dark ages dress and a steampunk outfit. Hopefully I'll post some of my concepts and ideas up in the next couple of weeks and then some pictures shortly after that.
As part of my costuming I'm taking a couple of courses in sewing, corsetry, millinery and pattern making. Hopefully I'll be able to post a bit about that too!
