New larp thread, with more larpers larping on larps
Still talking camp food...
It's an 8-day camp. The idea is to use leftovers and boil out bones as much as possible. The first few days are easy because refrigeration still holds.
Mears' roasted salmon > fish soup
Roast chicken > stir fry > chicken salad + chicken soup
Breakfast pancakes > sliced pancakes in soup
Beef soup > stew
The veg will be fresh and pickled cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, paprika, cucumber, and mushrooms. Maybe the occasional baked potato.
I know how to make my sourdough rye, but I need inspiration for sweets. Should I just consult Jas Townsend, or does someone have a good idea?
bring honey for sweeten things. If you have a little flour and various other things you can even bake something on a campfire.
Also we once made doughnuts on campfire too and somewhere I have a recipe for a cake made in a cauldron
Yes, everything would be baked in a fire.
I had good results with a clay pot and maybe I can afford my dutch oven this year.
Doughnuts are a mess, takes lots of lard. And I am not comfortable heating that much grease over an open flame. But they ARE delicious when fresh!
She reposted it after baaaawleting so here it is again, in all its ita glory
The old one reached it's limit. Let's continue here.

New thread; old one in autosage. Please refer to the previous thread while it is still up:
These anons still need help:
Not sure which legion you need specifically but you can easily find the backpatches on etsy and ebay.
Meetups are generally arranged specific to the con you are attending. Usually you discuss with the anons in thread on a time/date that works for the majority. Personally I've never gone to a meetup but I know that sometimes anons will go drinking in the evening (this is usually a secondary meetup though since it excludes anons who are under the drinking age).
You will have to choose if you'd rather have the hood look good when up, or if you'd rather the mask looked good. If you cut along the dotted lines, yes, the hood would lay better, however the mask will likely curl/flop over on the sides that are no longer attached since it is not secured in place anymore. I am not sure what you mean by putting an elastic in the back of the hood - do you mean behind the mask? Yes, that would help it fit closer to your face, but it also would defeat the purpose of cutting along the dotted lines to make the hood lay better when the mask is up. You would also be adding unsightly stitching to the front of the mask. Unfortunately you can't have the best of both worlds with something like this.
If you are bringing this to a con then your scissors may be confiscated even if the blades are dull and stuck together. That being said you could make your own out of a variety of materials such as foam, sintra, or even cardboard.
I google image searched "durag cap pattern" and found a couple patterns that you could modify. Link below is a tutorial on how to sew one:
Cardboard, expanding foam and papermache. EVA foam would also work if you spackle the seam and seal it.
Why not use a stiffer fabric like organza and stitch the pleats?
What gauge of wire would you use for fairy wings? I made a pair last year and they were really beautiful but they couldn't really stand up under their own weight because the wire I used was too light. I'd be covering the wings with tulle, organza or another similar light weight fabric. And possibly adding some silk flowers as embellishment.
I did some googling but most of what I saw was for little girl wings and suggested using old coats hangers.
Could use some assistance, I'm looking for a blouse to go with a Yolonda Skirt and Cape, it'd be great if I could find a decent quality one in black and one in white. Especially if they can go with other things. She has a nice Meta coat and an IW skirt, as well as some other miscellaneous stuff, but I want to help her build her wardrobe up.

I have weird skin where my t-zone is super greasy while my cheeks are normal. The area around my mouth also has discolored patches that I can cover up with concealer but makes me look like I have a permanent mustache when I don't have makeup on. What would you guys suggest me use? I've been trying CC cream and brightening products for my weird mouth area for a couple months but I haven't been seeing results so far.
A-kon 27 is just around the corner! (Or, it's five months away.)
Is anyone attending who's never been? Are you ready for the return of Yaya?
Are we ready for another year of pulled fire alarms from the edgy teenagers or for another guy to beat the hell out of some firefighters and a cop while tripping Acid?
I sure am!
What's your favorite part about the upcoming Anatole storm?

Anything i'm missing?
I want to take a moment to thank everyone that contributes to these threads. I just had my first AA and it went well, in part due to all the great advice I got here. Cheers!
>How to order from Vograce
So how was lagc??? was it shit like always?
Who going to midlands MCM and super comic con.
here we go
I'm looking to make a kokoshnik and have no idea where to begin. I've tried looking online but cannot find a decent tutorial. I've found half decant ones translated from Russian but made of paperboard, candy wrappers and paper. I'm looking for something a little higher brow.
What do you think about proposing at conventions? Sweet or tacky? Share stories or videos of proposals you've seen, or what you would do if you were proposed to at a convention.
Two happened at Katsu
and a marriage
the marriage looked like normies who were jutst using the gazebo. It was kind of sweet actually. The con clapped for them.
Then I saw a rapunzel and eugene get engaged in the gazebo about 20 minutes later. She looked so thrilled.
someone on my facebook shared a story about some guy proposing to his girlfriend when they cosplayed link and zelda. they won a cosplay competition because of it even though their cosplays apparently sucked. a bit of a cheap move but whatever.
i'm not a fan of public proposals in general so cosplay ones are especially cringe.
Salutations, thought maybe a RWBY thread should happen seeing the season finale just happened and well,
a lot of people are probably emotionally disabled right now.
So a thread to discuss
our feelings, theories, cosplays and all that jazz~
what kindof chuunibyou LARP'ing did you do before you knew any better that causes you the most embarrassment thinking about it today?
haha don't feel bad. i was hoping this thread could be like some form of cathartic release as we admit to ourselves our most embarassing moments and accept the fact that we all were, at one point, immature lame-brains
People wear Lolita to cosplay events, does that mean what I think it means?
