LARP armour compilation

Mordastyr, or Mord for short, is a Might Priest. Which basically means im front line attacker tank. A key highlight was when I had to sacrifice myself in the Temple of Might to  open the dungeon tunnel, and thankfully the Gods of Might looked favourably down upon me and resurrected me!

How to guide:

Costume:

I bought a 4m length of cream coloured muslin. I cut two strips length ways, 1-2 inches wide, for the arm bandages. I then cut the remaining material in half and sewed the short ends together on one side, to make one long piece of material for the body wrap.

Rey: costume and design board

Rey’s staff:

I bought a 2m wooden pole, and attached different bottles, aluminum cans and plastic packaging to create the different shapes. Using papier-mâché and glue to create the structure. I then painted it using black, silver and bronze paint to create a metal effect. Lastly, I glued different types of muslin material for the handle.
