I've managed to turn out an archery scroll for Bryn Gwlad, and the invite scroll for TRH Aaron and Amelot Lisette's coronation. 

Pictures of both to come later, after they've been awarded/sent out.

Now, I turn my attention to letters of intent and crests for the Legacy of Lions event in October.  *blink* 

Ioannes wants a demi double-headed eagle or issuant from a tower gules, and Liam wants a woman, holding an a quill and...a flame, I think?


So, papier mache, here I come!

And be aware that when I say pictures, I mean like 20 of them.  I'm not kidding when I say this entry will eat your brain bandwidth.

These are some of the photos showing the progress of my new armor kit.  It's going to be gorgeous and I can't wait for it to be done!

You have been warned... )

These are pictures of the first red tunic, and the start of the second one.

They're AWFUL, but they'll give you an idea.

It's not quite so orange IRL, but it is BRIGHT!  You can barely see the detail on the facing, but I'll update when I have better pictures.

The following pictures are the start of the second tunic.  This is the facing that goes around the collar.  I usually do a double facing, and turn it from the inside out, so that the neckline is totally enclosed and neat.  One, it looks better to me, and two, it avoids the neckline rubbing an exposed seam on Ioannes's neck.

You can see the word "TOP" in one shot,  That's to remind me which side is the top side, or rather, which one will be seen on the outside of the tunic.

And a bit closer.  Not that you can see anything.

I'm currently working on two projects:

This is going to be a personal banner.  I've still got to actually sew everything down (rather than just stitchwitch it down), paint the green leaves, do the eye, the nose and the ear detail, and then paint the ermine.  It's all hemmed and everything.  Both the top and the bottom have sleeves for poles, so it can be tied to a day shade, or suspended in a variety of ways.  

This is the banner for Hellsgate.  It needs to be hemmed along the sides, highlighted and ties put on it, but it's coming along.  I'm industrious and stuff.

However, I really wish I could have gone to Coronation.  These needed to be done though.  I made a promise to get two banners done by FP tomorrow.  Eeeep!

So, what have I been doing in my spare time?  Besides wishing some Dallas peeps could go pick this up for me and hang on to it until I can get up there next weekend??

Well, working on a scroll.  Our Stronghold is holding our first event in August, and so, I decided we needed to do invites.  Personally, I blame [ profile] zaphod_groupie , because our group got an invite to an event she was doing, and well...that kinda made me all keen on doing it too!

Well, because I am insano in the braino, I decided to take on the idea of making this invite.

I've done...three...scrolls. I think.

So, what else to do but go all out?  This is not inked yet, but it'll give you an idea.

So I don't eat your friends page... )

Okay...I've gotten the fonts figured out, and have installed a bunch on my computer.  Thank you thank you thank you for the help!!!


Since my beloved husband wants to fight at Ursae-Lyons III this month, I need to figure out something to gift to Their Excellencies as a part of the entrance "fee."  Also, see, I need to construct a letter of intent for him, as well as help Liam put together a letter giving him permisson to fight for me at Namron Protectorate.  Ieeeeeee.


Any brillian ideas as to what I can make?  Please remember that my house is packed up at the moment.
