Whether you’re a costume designer working on a new Film or TV production or simply a passionate Larper wanting that dream armour created, Larp-Fashion are here to help create your bespoke Armour designs.
With over 20 years’ experience, there are few themes our Master Armourer, Alex Agricola (Formerly of Black Raven Armoury) hasn’t worked with and in this time has developed & collected a vast library of source material. Whatever film, TV, Wedding or Larp armour design you are looking for, we will create something unique for you.
How does our bespoke Armour & costume service work?
We pride ourselves on tailoring every single project to each client individually, the first things we ask for are “Design ideas or theme “AND "Deadline" & "Budget" All critical in our view, in creating a design that we can not only make in time, but also to a budget that ensures quality!
Quality and craftsmanship, made in both Germany & England by the Larp-fashion team of enthusiastic and professional craftspeople are all highly experienced having produced countless bespoke film armour and Game armour projects over the years (not to mention thousands of Larp armours) and more than a few theme weddings!!!
Intricate leather armour patterns are either hand-tooled or embossed, edges are hand finished, almost everything made employing good old fashioned techniques used for producing armour for hundreds of years! Whether its water forming, hardening and hand dyeing - to form and finish the leather, our Master Armourer Alex Agricola, prides himself in a 100% personal touch, with our leather professionally antiqued to age it, giving your design a totally authentic aged and battle worn look.
Working closely with museums and archives who give us access to ancient artefacts, Larp-fashion can accurately recreate historical leather items. Alternatively, if you are looking for something a bit different and totally unique, Larp-fashion can design and manufacture something completely bespoke for you. Whether plain or intricate, all designs are possible no matter the theme of your Larp armour or character.
Larp-Fashion can now produce bespoke leather armour and leather clothing, props and accessories for the film industry, theatre productions, Computer Game developers, costume hire companies and individuals alike, including Larp armour Re-enactment armour & SCA armour.
Whether you need authentic leather armour from the Roman, Celtic, Viking or Norse periods; historical leather costumes from the Bronze, Medieval or Middle Ages; costumes for fantasy pirates, futuristic Science-Fiction or Anime characters; or something completely different, I can design and manufacture it for you in quality leather.
As well the deadline & budget for your larp costume, we think it critical to know in as much detail as possible, not only your ideas, likes & dislikes, but also the practicalities of use... (we want to get that look perfect)
Be it a larp armour, wedding armour, or for simply for film, all too often costumes are designed & constructed to look stunning.... Until the moment you have to sit down and eat! Whether it's simple comfort or to keep warm in the rain, maybe you need to wear your costume on horseback, all these little details are important, so prepare yourself for a grilling !
Our Master Armourer & Costume Designer “Alex Agricola”will take your brief and on confirmation of the commission and payment of your deposit will produce an initial conceptual idea for you to choose from.
From here, a detailed list of measurements for your larp costume will be taken and the patterning process begins.
