My friend and I recently attended a new spy themed LARP game called; Aces and Operatives!

I was a body guard for the CIA, turned into an Assassin Operative working undercover for the enemy

It was a great excuse to dress up fancy, although I was already sold at the canapes and Poker!

I bought this Grecian style green dress for just £1 at a jumble sale

However, unfortunately it was much too big for me, so I adjusted it to fit me.

Finished adjusted dress

As you can see the dress was about double my size!

I discovered someone had let the dress out previously, using the added gold material at the back

Dress before alteration

I removed the gold added back piece and put darts in fit myself

I then added a zip as I had to remove the previous hook and eye fastenings

How-to-guide: Duel Katanas

Making of – Katanas
  • I bought a long piece of plastic and cut it in half
  • I created the handles out of cardboard and papier-mâché
  • I used bandages as a top layer on the handles to create a more realistic texture
  • I then painted it according to the original design
