How to start making your own fantasy costumes

Illustration by Elin Kero, 2012 I made this illustration back in 2012 and I remember everything I felt in that moment. That dress was a dream, something unachievable. I never thought I could make something like that and I’ve never had the money to buy me a dress that someone else had created. So I really wanted to wear princess dresses, but I only did it in my drawings. – That was before I met my fairy tale sisters… In…

My Christmas Costume

Photographer: Henrik Jensen   I attended the Medieval Christmas Fair in Visby this weekend and it was soooo magical! It didn’t feel like winter at all, with the dull and rainy weather and wet streets, but I did some ”snow dancing” during the late friday evening. My friends watched me with this ”she’s crazy or at least a bit silly”-look on their faces, but I really think the God of snow was amused! Because on saturday night and sunday the…

I love to challange myself, doing things I’m…

Elin Hood

  Three self-portraits from this evening. It’s sooo hard to take pictures of yourself with a 2-seconds-remote control and at the same time pose with the longbow. 2 seconds is nothing.

This time I didn’t draw my bow… that’s advanced…. haha. But it’s fun!…

Epic archer costume

    I have a new costume. An archer costume and I love it! The tunic i sewn with some wool fabric I had left after making a warmer dress for the Medieval Fair this year. I used the same pattern for this tunic, but I made the garment shorter and didn’t sew the bottom parts together. The fitting went really well this time and this piece is so nice to wear! I thought I would be cold without the…
