So, in our vampire larp, my clan are being shot down atm, politically and my npc (kinda more a dpc at this point, lets be honest, the GM's are the bestest!) was feeling more than a little vulnerable.
What better way to make your position more secure than a little toadying? Seeing as I have the ooc skills to match my ic skill set and a sibling who can translate stuff into latin for me I figured a was all set... So I made our dear Consul Maximus a present!
The Latin is a translation adapted from ecclesiastical Latin and reads 'for the greater glory of the master'.
The picture is a colouring page, that I enlarged, printed out, cut up and spent a long time cutting tiny bits of fabric and bondaweb for... I then stuck it all down, machined over every piece and added hand stitched detail where needed, plus a few beads.
The roses are my clan symbol and handily a nice touch. I used this tutorial and some of the gold scraps I'd used elsewhere on the banner. The leaves are a ribbon I had!
And here is the Consul Maximus (aka The Gentleman Gamer) himself, with his banner! Yes the charioteer has been given his hair and eye colour, as near as I could recreate from fabric I had on hand! You can tell this is after the game, because he's smiling and not about to bite head head off for impertinence....
