Orc Shaman

This incredible orc shaman costume comes to us from German LARPer nebelmotte.  I can't even imagine the hours of work that went into the layers of costume elements and auxiliary props.  Thanks to Moritz Jendral for the photos.

LARP Combat Knives

At this point it's safe to say that LARP weaponry is essentially indistinguishable from the real thing.  These amazingly realistic combat knives come to us from the extremely talented Steelgohst.  The weathering is just fantastic.

I wasn't surprised to learn there's a huge community of crafters that specialize in making polymer clay flowers.  They're cute, but not really my thing.  What did raise an eyebrow was the work of DarkWonderLand by Melavia, who specializes in "alternative floristics" like this creeptastic bloom.

Idol of Tsathoggua

"In that secret cave in the bowels of Voormithadreth abides from eldermost eons the god Tsathoggua. You shall know Tsathoggua by his great girth and his batlike furriness and the look of a sleepy black toad which he has eternally. He will rise not from his place, even in the ravening of hunger, but will wait in divine slothfulness for the sacrifice."

The talented Jason McKittrick returns to our pages with this well done idol of Clark Ashton Smith's Tsathoggua.

Aged Bottle

El Dodo Albino returns to our pages with a look at his aging process for an apothecary bottle.  The only additional suggestion I would have is using colored powdered grout in place of talcum powder.  It's available in dozens of different shades and adds a really dusty, grungy feel to props.

Great Cthulhu

Artist Ricardo Orozco brings us this nicely done Cthulhu bust.  Not to be judgemental, but I think the table drape detracts from the cosmic horror.  Heh.

Thursday, November 15, 2018


Sander Propworx returns to our pages with this amazing LARP warhammer. Just look at the detail in that closeup shot. It's a far cry from the cheesy boffer weapons of the 90s.

The Weaver

We are surrounded by threads of life-force connecting each and every one of us.  Manipulating those strands is the purview of the Weavers, an ancient race of creatures much sought after as familiars and servants.  At considerable personal risk Alice Tochylovska was able to capture this specimen.

Into the Shadows

Dr. Christian Lehmann is preparing for a trip to a very dark place.  Namely the 1942: The Shadow Army LARP.  I love prop display shots like this.

Master of Mandrakes
