Druid

I have been sewing authentic medieval clothing for a while now, but I didn't have any pretty pictures with those. Luckiliy the lovely Calisere helped me out. She ordered the late medieval green wool dress - reconstructed after the finds in Herjolfsnes - and also organized the photoshooting. I think they created many beautiful, magical [...]

Mini top hats & fascinators for Guggamusik d’Hardar Schlösslefeagar

It has been quiet for a while on the website. But I haven't been idle in the meantime. For example I made twelve mini top hats and seven fascinators for the Guggamusik d'Hardar Schlösslefeagar (https://www.schloesslefeagar.com/). The Hardar Schlösslefeagar is a carnival music club (in case you don't know what Guggamusik is ;) ) and they [...]

Steam Pirate & Green Baroque with Miss Sujata

Lately Miss Sujata has been my busiest model. She almost put my whole sortiment in front of a camera. And she organizes all these photo shootings. This time with Ben Peter and Laura Jakoby in Frankfurt. Now it's about time that I sew something new for her. ;) Here you can see the Steampunk Pirate [...]

Larva in the Middle Ages – Market dates (updated)

This year I will be attending some renaissance faires with Larva again. Last year I was travelling through all of Germany. That was very interesting, but unfortunately it didn't really pay off. Only the gas expenses and the market fees used up most of the earnings. So this year I am concentrating on medieval markets [...]

With Animals for Animals

Last year Miss Sujata gave me the possibility to contribute to Schokopixel's project With Animals for Animals. With Animals for Animals is a free project where Schokopixel photographed animals together with human models. The pictures are sold and the proceeds go to animal protection. I couldn't say no to that. Miss Sujata borrowed my Victorian wild silk [...]

Hufflepuff Coat

I got another nice request. The daughter of a friend from the fencing club wanted a Hogwarts coat in the Hufflepuff colours for her birthday. Everything had to be done very fast, since her birthday was around the corner and the coat was supposed to be a surprise. So I got one of her summer [...]

Indian Blouse

And another custom order. During my last medieval market in Hard, Austria I met a very nice fabric merchant. She bought a blouse in India and that blouse quickly became her favourite. And after many years of faithful service the blouse became a bit battered. Since the original fabric was worn very thin and perforated [...]

Black ribbon corset

This ribbon corset is available in beige in my shop, but I am happy to change all my designs according to your wishes. This customer wanted the ribbon corset still with the fake suede, but in black. Additionally she required a cover for the corset busk, because it would otherwise damage her instrument. (Yes, I'm [...]

Tiny Top Hat

A tiny update for a tiny top hat. My small mini to hats and the other small hats are actually rather big - about a third of the full-sized hats. Most fascinator hats you can buy are actually smaller and on request I build one like that as well. The hat is again half the [...]

Dragon Queen

During our vernissage for the makeup calendar last year I met Theresa aka SujARTa Photography. Theresa is a very interesting and beautiful model. Additional she dances, studied medical engineering and is a fantasy fan. She also liked my clothes. So we had no choice but to plan a fashion shooting together. Theresa knows a lot of [...]

Braiding techniques: Fingerloop braiding & Kumihimo

Beforehand: This is not a detailed tutorial for fingerloop braiding or Kumihimo. You can find a lot of them for free in the internet. I will write about the pros and cons of each technique. I use lacing as a closure for my clothes quite often. And there are only rather modern versions in the [...]
