_______________________________________

We have been sewn costume based on the game Thief for Francesco Alonzo Miralyano - character LARP "Warhammer 2014: Lustria 2" in summer 2014.

Our main task was to combine and adapt the suit for the realities of role-playing game, as well as make it comfortable, without losing aesthetic.

Initially, it was necessary to develop a design of the "corset", making it functional and more "male", not like the female similar products. Cope with this has helped us in the first place design, something resembling a wide belt. An important role is also played by a strict black leather and different textures, which allowed without altering the color, make items different from each other in appearance. Adjusting the lacing allows, if necessary, wear a corsage as a suit or on other clothing. One important task was to preserve the appearance of the original source, which we have carried out all the details of the proportional adaptation suit customer's individual sizes, as well as study of the embroidery on all elements.

Flax was selected not only for the quality of the fabric, but also by subjective indicators - tactile feel to the fabric was nice when worn next to the skin. Shirt, pants and hood were tailored separately for convenience wearing, but the elements of a cut were as close as possible to the original.

Despite all these advantages, the choice of flax complicated costume design in general, and in particular the fixing of the "corset".
In this regard, the design of the "corset" were added wide three-part shoulder straps that mimic elements of the original costume sewn and fixed corsage in position.
While working on this costume of a lot of attention was paid to the accessories: gloves, bracers, elbow, belt and armor for legs.

When creating bracers was necessary to combine the appearance of three-piece design (as in a game) and functionality in use. Side connectors are simulated, and the cord is lacing from the central connector. However, to preserve the appearance like on the reference the decorative upper and the lower functional lacing it's one single cord, which is more than 5 meters on each bracer. :)

Asymmetrical elbow - on the right hand, he is a shield that covers the top of the forearm, elbow and shoulder bottom; on his left hand - bracers and covers only the forearm and elbow.
Belt design as close as possible to the original.

In the original, knees, shins and pants gathered into a single structure, which is not very suitable, in our view, in active LARP. In this regard, the knees are designed as a separate element of the costume.

Shin, for special customer requirements, are made of a dense leather so that they can be put as with any soft leather shoes, and with army boots, depending on the conditions at the site.

All elements are governed by the buckles.

Special thanks to Vyacheslav Potemkin (for photos).
