Close up desert-elf LARP gear by Headclouds Close up desert-elf LARP gear by Headclouds
Please note that THIS IS NOT A COSPLAY. It's for LARP.

This is a picture which shows more of the gear for my desert-elf character.

The first pictures shows the backpack and document holder, which are made of leather that I've pressed some patterns into and then painted. The lid is kept shut with a kind of tiny buttons, and the document-holder is strapped to the bigger backpack with some letaher straps. It's possible to remove it from the backpack when it is not needed.

The back of the coat is also shown, where you can see that it's open and have symetrical patterns sewn onto it.

The middle picture shows the dress, it's made of some sort of thin suede-like material and it's in three layers to give some effect to the skirt. It's decorated with thin leather at the neck and the front of the skirt. The sleeves are only one layer.

The gloves are made of leather, and I've got a pair of knitted arm-warmers under them.

The third picture shows the front of the gear, with the coat, dress, belts and backpack-straps crisscrossing on my chest. The coat is made of brown velvet and it's got a satin fodder in a kind of copper-tone, however it's not shown in the picture. The sleeves are made of three parts that are overlapping each other.

I've not made the belts.

It's a square piece of fabric with the edge-lining sewn on (similar to the edges that you find on e.g. a curtain band/lampshade or similar decorations) :)

I like the outfit, but to me it looks more like a wood-  than desert-elf

This is amazing!

I was wondering, do you take costume commissions? I'm interested in a leather costume and I was wondering if you took commissions.

thank you!

I do take some commissions but it all really depends on what you want (how much detail, what kind of leather etc.) and also if you have a design or know pretty well what you're going after or if I have to try and come up with something that you like :)

Perhaps you could add cloth bindings to your wrists and legs to cover the openings of your jacket sleeves and your boots. It's a precautionary measure taken by some traveling in the desert to keep out sand (which gets everywhere!). Your outfit is awesome without but if you want more of a practical/authentic flare, you could consider it.

I love this outfit so much. I was going to make a desert outfit earlier this year but didn't get around to it...

Oh that's really smart! I didn't think of that earlier, but I'll take that into consideration when making the completely new set of clothes for that character :) Thank you for the great feedback ^-^

How come you didn't do it?

Mostly time and some money issues but I should be able to do it this summer since I don't have summer school. Mine will be more white/sand colored since I would BOIL at conventions/Ren Fairs in darker colors. I have most of the material but I need to start drafting better patterns ^^
