“The road and the tale have both been long, would you not say so? The trip has been long and the cost has been high… but no great thing was ever attained easily. A long tale, like a tall Tower, must be built a stone at a time.”
This is a 14th century style hood I was commissioned to make a few months ago for another member of The Royal Court of Chesterwick. I seriously love making hoods and I seem to have a knack for designing them, so I thought I’d have a go at making one for someone else.
The main body of this hood is made from brown wool, with the gussets being a beautiful wool/ silk blend. The lining is green 100% linen. Interior seams for this one are machine overlocked (because it’s for LARP, not reenactment), with all exposed stiching hand finished with silk and wool threads. Around the face it’s finished with a green silk blanket stitch, with an overcast stitch in brown wool along the bottom. I made this hood to fit snuggly around the neck, with a relatively short liripipe that sticks out the back when worn up.
I’m super happy with how this turned out, and Peter was also pretty thrilled. he accessorised with some cast pewter pins which worked really well.

Hello! My name is Meghan and I’m in my second year of college! I’m very shy and I figured that this would be a cool way to meet new people. I’m kind of geeky and enjoy watching anime as well as playing video games and DnD in my spare time. I am also an avid cosplayer and convention goer!

It had been a good night. A very good night by anyone’s standards, Derek reasoned. And when he stretched out, warm and content from the rest he had, finding Stiles’ body pressed up alongside his, Derek knew that he was wrong. It had been an incredible night.
Because you should really ask before reposting their art, even if you post credits doesn't mean everyone's comfortable with it, and they are well within their rights to report it if they want to, it's their art and their copyright
The problem with that thought is that I don’t post art from peoples portfolios or things like that. I post products that are for sale in online stores. If people do not want their products shared around then, sure, fine, but that’s really bad for marketing yourself. I get where you’re coming from but this blog is, in general, a geeky merch blog where people can go to find things to buy.
Like I said in the post, I’ll take stuff down if people want me to but it’s free promotion so I don’t know why people would choose to say ‘no, I don’t want you to post the products I’m trying to make money off of to your thousands of followers’. That doesn’t make any sense. I will take things down if they want, but it still doesn’t make sense from a business standpoint.
These are things for sale that I am promoting, not personal fan art, and that makes a big difference. Does that make sense? I hope I’m explaining this well…
