I made this costume for a client who plays an elven archer in a LARP. We discussed her ideas, and I provided some sketched designs, from which we developed the final look. She specifically requested the Celtic knots that were incorporated into the design, as they hold personal significance to both herself and her character. The outer dress is made of leather, with a cotton twill lining. The Celtic appliques are made of leather. I painted the silver edging onto the dress with textile paint, and sewed a thin silver trim along the border of the silver paint to help define the change in color. The blouse that is worn beneath the dress is made of linen, and has a high collar with an interesting scoop-shaped front opening. The pants are made of feather wale corduroy in a dark olive green color. They have faux lacing down the sides of the legs.
