I'm starting with my most recent makes. Sunday just gone saw the start of the new BLADES campaign which can only mean one thing - yep new character kit! This year I am playing one half of a scatty mage pair. And I was lucky enough to be given free reign over the kit designing process...
|Wizards Rainbow and Monochrome.|
So, as soon as we'd decided to play mages I knew I had found the perfect use for the two metres of rainbow satin I had and very quickly after that Rainbow was born.
She has a rainbow satin dress (that I made with vogue pattern 8648 ), a stripey top (charity shop find) the loudest pair of tights I had in my collection (H&M I think..), stripey leg warmers (good ol' H&M again), rainbow crocheted gloves (that I made myself, working it out as I went along) and a rainbow fleece coat with a quilted cotton lining (pattern worked out by yours truly, inspired by http://www.etsy.com/shop/katwise).
|The gloves - I love the ruffles!|
|My mad coat and the slightly less mad cloak.|
|Everything minus the coat|
My poor long suffering friend (who shall remain nameless in return for letting my post these photos!) is my opposite and yet not. So whilst Rainbow has a love of all colours Monochrome does not. And seeing as he's daft/kind enough to let Rainbow do the clothes shopping, well he ended up in black and white. Because that's what you get for people who don't like pretty colours, right?
I made him a top (my own design), an over sized tabbard, crocheted gloves (one black, one white but for reasons best know to no-one I failed to take a picture of them, sorry), a fleece cloak and a hat.
|Mighty Monochrome! :P|
|My beloved 'twin' is as daft as I am!|
|My hood - how cute is the pompom?!|
